Cupertino may be a company town (Apple’s, to be precise), but inside the walls of the Cypress Hotel, you’re in Kimpton’s world. And that’s a very nice place to reside. There’s a warm, lived-in vibe to the common spaces, such as a youthful take on a drawing room. Dark wood paneling, a roaring fire and tufted wingback chairs mix with playful art and graphic print rugs.
Bed and Bath
Far from the sterile environment one might expect from a business-centric hotel, the rooms have a Jonathan Adler–style whimsicality, with geometric rugs, funky silhouette throw pillows and upholstered headboards. Then there are Kimpton’s signature animal print robes hanging in the closet. We love touches like in-room yoga mats, jogging maps of the area and Bigelow bath products.
There’s really very little reason to leave the confines of the hotel. You might not be interested in venturing much farther than the firepit at Park Place, the on-site bar and restaurant, which serves Cali wines, creative cocktails and locavore fare. If you do venture further, you can two-wheel it on the hotel’s free bicycles. Reward yourself afterward with an in-room spa treatment.
In the Area
From spam musubi to macaroni salad, J&J’s Hawaiian BBQ, just down the street from the hotel, is the real deal. Locals flock to Bay Area favorite Philz Coffee for their joe, which is made one cup at a time, selected from a dizzying array of roasts and beans to achieve personal pour-over perfection. Where else but in Silicon Valley would you find the Computer History Museum? It’s in neighboring Mountain View (Google’s home base) and definitely worth a ride over. Fan boys and girls will not want to miss the Apple Company Store, which does not sell computers or phones or tablets, but is the only place in the world to get Apple logo apparel and accessories.
How to Get There
Really nice location. Friendly staff from the front desk to housekeeping. Wide variety of restaurants within a short distance and easy access to San Francisco. The bartender makes a delicious raspberry lemon drop!
From the friendly greeting at the front desk, to the beautiful decorations in the lobby, restaurant, bar and guest rooms, this hotel was a delight. The guest room was clean and well furnished with desk, couch, wardrobe, large TV, a large closet and bathroom with a great tub for soaking. With easy access to many freeways and shopping, it's great for a day trip to San Fransisco area or seeing the local sights in the valley - and of course, close to many big businesses for work.
The hotel is clean and comfortable. The bar was great and very accommodating for our large group. Exercise room was decent and my room was very comfortable. Also liked being within walking distance of many restaurants.
The bed was bowed. I didn’t get more towels when I asked for them. My view as a silver member was terrible. The amenities were average at best. Very similar to a holiday inn. Texting to ask how my stay is going isn’t customer service.
Made a 1 night reservation here for the Sunday night before the cfp playoff game. I wanted to be close to Santa Clara and we were coming down from SF so this aligned well. I had a free night due to my spend level with Hilton and used it here. Was also upgraded by the front desk which was nice.
Other than the Alabama color coordinated entrance (j/k), the hotel was very nicely appointed. There is free, covered, self parking that is very close to the hotel. The restaurant is good but extremely expensive (not surprising for the area).
Our room was quite nice and had a beautiful view of the mountains.
HVAC worked pretty well. Room was clean and beds were comfortable.
Check in and check out was extremely easy.
