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
This is a very nice boutique property in Cupertino, one that prompts me to be on the alert for other properties available elsewhere. The front desk service is flawless, from checking in and out to assistance with minor business service needs. The room was well-appointed, and I appreciated the green option of not having the room done during my brief stay.
I look forward to staying here every chance I can. Customer service so attentive. The restaurant is way above average with outside seating, super breakfast, killer burger and fresh coastal eats. The rooms are warm, cozy, comfy and super clean. Everything in this upscale hotel lives up to this beautiful Apple headquarter’s town. Enjoy the code in the drapery design, and watching the Apple busses drive by.
Rooms are good and staff is okay. Do not touch the phone to make any calls. They charged me $800 for one hour call. I checked with many telephone operators and this charge is insane. Talked to the staff but did not get satisfactory answer. No breakfast here and paid one is also not good with the price charged.
Had wedding rehearsal dinner at hotel, was horribly warm in our dining area, asked if a/c could be adjusted. Staff said they would have to get manager approval.
Called for towels that were never brought, after an hour, had to search halls for a maid.
The Juniper is a convenient located hotel in the mist of Silicon Valley. However due the convenience of the location, the place lacks of Guest and personal attention. Request are not properly listen at or simply ignored and answered with a co-orporate style response. If you look for a place which offers little Personal Care, thats the place to book
