A cross between a Mediterranean mansion and a slick metropolitan boutique hotel, this 212-room San Jose stay offers something for both expense account-wielding execs and cool-seeking vacationers. Interiors tend towards clean-lined minimalism and a sleek black and white palette, while the pool and restaurants exude a more European vibe, with warm tones, classic columns and arches, and sprays of vibrant bougainvillea. Enjoy stunning sunset views beside a glowing fire pit at the rooftop wine bar Cielo, then head through the sheer curtains at the entrance of glam restaurant Citrus for Californian coastal cuisine featuring locally-sourced sustainable meats and seafood.
In the Area
Start by exploring the vibrant, palm tree-lined boulevard that is Santana Row, a fun laid-back neighborhood crammed with upscale restaurants, bars and boutiques. Then visit the feted San Jose Museum of Art, known for its impressive permanent collection of contemporary West Coast art. Oenophiles should head a little further afield on a Silicon Valley wine tasting mission, stopping at cellar doors like Bargetto Winery, known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and Morgan Hill Cellars, founded in 1913 and one of the oldest wineries in the Santa Clara Valley.
How to Get There
Overall really good experience. The room we received was fabulous with its own balcony. The hotel has a really nice Pool and hot tub as well as a gym. The gym is strangely located on the 5th floor and was actually over our room which did cause some noise but nothing too disruptive. The hotels bar is very cool and swanky. We got a drink there which was good servers seemed interested in chatting with each other more than us at time but overall very cool location. Also ordered room service for breakfast which was very tasty.
Check in with Jream was great he was very polite and gave great customer service. Valet was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay! Overall great and would most definitely recommend.
We had a great stay at Hotel Valencia Santana Row San Jose. Beautiful hotel outside and inside. Very clean and friendly staff. Located right in Santana Row. We went down to have some Mexican appetizers in the garden restaurant at the end of the row. We went on a Thursday and they had a two man band playing old Mexican ballads. Just my cup of tea. Loved it
