Great romantic boutique hotel for a weekend.
I normally do not write reviews, but I really wanted to take the opportunity to rave about this quaint little boutique hotel in santa clara. I picked this place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and wanted to get away from the typical dorm room scene. Being a graduate student on financial aid, paying $300 a night at some other upscale places, like in SF or monterey, was out of the question. Then I came across this place. For around $100 a night, we got an amazing, very well appointed room. I have stayed at resorts and hotels all over the world, and the room would go toe-to-toe with any of the other guest rooms (obviously excluding suites). The place has a pool and hot tub, and some other amenities we didn't take advantage of. The best part was we truly received 4-star service. I made reservations online stating that it was my girlfriend's birthday, and the staff went above and beyond what was required, and totally exceeded my expectations. When we came to our room, there was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us, and the staff had purchased a cake and candles and left it in the mini fridge. It really made the evening. Being locals we did a night on the town in san jose and the surrounding area and retired back to our room in the evening after using the hotel's pool and hot tub. I can't overemphasize what a great value this stay was, and the staff showed a level of service of a 4-star hotel.
Cons: Not a lot to do in the immediate area, but if you have a car who cares? You can get on 280 and get access to all silicon valley has to offer.
Sleek, contemporary style highlights this fashionable Silicon Valley retreat..
Opened in 2001, this hotel expertly uses natural woods and rich colors to combine sleek modern style with elegant classical touches. Its refined demeanor makes its reasonable rates an excellent value for visitors to Silicon Valley. The VIP Club Level includes complimentary continental breakfast and a wine hour.
Red leather chairs and a stunning fireplace adorn the club-like lobby. The spacious and contemporary guest rooms are surprisingly urbane, with their tweed fabrics and dark plantation shutters. The billiards loft will make you feel as if you've been invited to the home of a wealthy friend. The Park Bar & Grill, which opens to the hotel's terrace, rivals the most cosmopolitan of eateries. The sophisticated pool area is surrounded by dramatic white-fabric cabanas that look as if they were brought in from the French Riviera.
Hollywood trendy meets San Jose. By looking at the location, you wouldn't think that San Jose has it's newest gem right inside those doors. I was greeted at checkin by the General Manager of the Moorpark, Jorge, who explained to me if there was anything I needed I was welcomed to call him directly. The decor in the rooms and in the common areas are way too beautiful for San Jose...more like Beverly Hills. The billards room on the 2nd floor is a classic and a brillant idea. I entertained clients with cocktails and billards there...not really work, huh?---I travel a good bit, staying anywhere from the Ritz-Carlton to the Four- Seasons, and I am very hard to impress. Congrats, Moorpark. Somehow you seemed to pull off the impossible.
