More Room Types

Named one of the best boutique hotels in Silicon Valley by Oyster.com, Hotel Avante caters to the business crowd in Mountain View visiting Google or LinkedIn headquarters, but it is also ideal for a leisurely weekend retreat and visitors heading to the nearby Roosters T Feather Comedy Club or Shoreline Amphitheatre. 

Expect pops of colour in the bedrooms and toys such as Etch-a-Sketch, a yo-yo and Rubik's Cube. Wi-Fi is free and breakfast is included in all rates. Business travellers looked after with desks, irons and ironing boards as standard. There is also a free shuttle that runs to local technology companies (Monday-Friday, 7-10:30am and Monday-Thursday, 4:30-7pm).   

Mingling with fellow guests is encouraged here, with long communal tables at breakfast (there are some smaller tables as well), and a complimentary wine (and beer) hour in the lobby each evening. There is a heated outdoor pool (open April-November), and an on-site fitness centre. 

There is no restaurant at the hotel for dinner, but there are a plethora of restaurants serving everything from pizza to Thai food and Indian dishes within a 10-minute walk.

San Jose and San Francisco are easy day trips via the Caltrain, which has two stops within a 10-minute drive from the hotel. If you are driving, you'll be pleased to know parking on site is free.
