Everything’s sunny in Sunnyvale, which more than lives up to its location in balmy California. And at TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning Wild Palms Hotel, things are bright, indeed. This is true in the literal sense, as the décor is heavily sunshine-inspired, with a palette of yellow, tropical plants, bowls of fruit and cheerful mosaics. And it’s true in the figurative sense, since you’re in for a wonderful day, every morning that you wake up in one of the property’s plush beds.
First, you’ll enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast – a friendly perk that sets the tone for what’s to come. Namely, a soak in the boutique base’s lovely pool, if you choose, or perhaps a wander around the charming courtyard. Sunnyvale’s specifically in Silicon Valley, so Levi’s Stadium, California’s Great America theme park, Santana Row and the Shoreline Ampitheatre are just a short way away. And when the sun finally goes down, you can wind down back home in the best way possible: with a luxurious soak in the open-air hot tub.
Your room is inspired by a bungalow and showcases pops of bright color, like orange and sunshine yellow. To brighten up your morning even more, the coffeemaker comes with Starbucks coffee. Deluxe King rooms offer a city view, while the Executive King rooms look out over the garden or pool; both rooms measure 264 square feet.
You might know the area in and around Sunnyvale better as Silicon Valley, since this section of the Bay Area is headquarters to the tech world’s biggest players: Yahoo, Google, Apple and Netflix, to name a few. While you can’t tour their campuses, you can learn about the history of the local computer-science industry at the nearby Intel Museum. There’s also some interesting non-tech history to explore locally, such as at the Winchester Mystery Mansion, and family-friendly thrill rides are on hand at nearby California’s Great America.
How to Get There
This our go to Hotel when we want a quick getaway close to home. The rooms are very nice and staff very welcoming Its located close enough to San Jose to go to events there. We have been here many times and always enjoy our staya.
This hotel is a found gem. From the friendly staff to the unique and modern decor. For me personally, cleanliness is everything. The Wild Palms Hotel meets all of my expectations and we will continue to book with them as we travel through the Bay Area.
I travel alot, especially here in California and also in Europe. For California, especially the Bay Area, to get a nice value hotel with free parking, free breakfast and a nice swimming pool at a great price, this is not easy to find. This place offers this, plus a very friendly staff. The hotel is a bit bizarre, bizarre in a fun way, as it reminds me of maybe a Central America hotel, not a hotel from CA. The breakfast is okay, no "wow" factor, but it is free. The area is safe and you have plenty of restaurants within a 5 min drive or less. We stayed there for a soccer tournament, and we were 2 minutes from the game fields. I would stay there again.
When you join the Joy of Life membership/club, they often leave an amenity in your room based on your preferences. When I checked in tonight, they handed me some chilled white wine. Having just come from dinner and having a big sweet tooth, I asked if they might have a cookie instead of wine. One moment later, Janett at the front desk returned with cookies AND wine! Wow. At any other hotel I would have been nickeled and dimed for that. Ask and ye shall receive!
was nice enough for me. but wifi did not work after the first night. Will probably not stay here again because the wifi was not available. Wifi was the main reason I stayed at this hotel. Other than that ther hotel was fine
