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
Wild Palms Hotel was a beautiful haven from home during our mandatory evacuation due to the Kincade Fire. With 15 elderly & 10 caregivers, we needed 12 rooms with close to no notice. Wild Palms went above and beyond to accommodate us prior and during our stay. One of our residents had his 90th birthday party on the spot in the event room. Special thank you to Fawn for your patience and guidance during booking and prior to check-in. Thank you to the ladies at the front desk (Alvira) for your kindness & help during check-in. And thank you to Shay for your communication and kindness during our stay and help at check-out. Highly recommend this hotel for any time of year. The decor is tropical and it felt like a resort with the birds of paradise, colorful room doors & center pool.
The front desk is not concerned with customer quality experience. If you want to party, this may be Ok. If you want some rest, I would not recommend. Place was noisy with an event on a Monday night in the conference room with loudspeakers. Noise from the pool area not well concealed with single pane windows. rooms are tiny. Price to value ratio...horrible
Thank you Shay... A most exceptional staff ... extremely courteous and friendly... thank you for such grand services and sweet, pleasant, gracious and warm welcome at wild palms hotel I very much love it here.
