Luxury, style, class and comfort are the key ingredients at this modern boutique hotel on San Jose’s Santana Row, Hotel Valencia. Nestled in the heart of bustling Silicon Valley, elegant Old World Mediterranean style meets sleek modern design to create the ultimate in cosmopolitan sophistication. Polished and recently renovated by Houston-based Rottet Studio to include 215 guest rooms and suites, more than 4,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, two on-site restaurants – Oveja Negra Restaurant (Black Sheep) and The Terrace, full-service VBar (ultra-modern and sleek, Vbar is one of the hottest spots at Santana Row) and seasonal rooftop bar, Cielo.
Located at the heart of the vibrant Santana Row urban oasis, yet somehow quiet and isolated from the hustle and bustle of San Jose and Silicon Valley, this European-inspired neighborhood is home to a dynamic mix of upscale shopping, dining and entertainment, featuring more than 70 shops, 20 restaurants and a six-screen movie theatre. It’s also walkable to Westfield Valley Fair Mall, the largest shopping hub in Northern California. It’s also 40 minutes south of San Francisco, 30 minutes north of many world-renowned wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains and only 45 minutes north of the gorgeous coastal cities: Monterey and Carmel.
A relatively small hotel however seemingly larger than its San Antonio counterpart, this hotel features includes 215 elegantly appointed guest room accommodations, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast served daily, a 24-hour fitness center, 4,000 square feet of flexible meeting, event and ballroom space, outdoor year-round rooftop swimming pool, complimentary wireless internet, business center with 24/7 access, eco-friendly restaurant, lighting and laundry practices, same day laundry and valet, 24-hour room service and handicap accessible facilities.

The Winchester Mystery House is a mansion in San Jose, California, which was once the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester.

People rent out the outdoor space for wine tastings and indoor for high tea or events as well.

Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House. She kept adding on rooms with steps and doors to nowhere.
