Overview

A fully restored Spanish Colonial Revival-style private estate dating back to 1905, the stately Dolce Hayes Mansion is a 15-minute drive from downtown San Jose and a 40-minute drive from the Santa Cruz Beaches, with wineries, nightlife and golf courses all in the immediate area.

It is one of San Jose’s most impressive buildings, with sweeping mountain views and surrounded by lush, green lawns and gardens. Some refer to it as the Haunted Hayes Mansion, and many flock here in hopes of a sighting or encounter (although so far, these are rare).

Besides the alleged spirit guests, regular folk can take advantage of the heated outdoor pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, 24-hour fitness center, a 12,000-square-foot spa with treatments available (many priced nicely at $99) and tennis courts. Access to the nearby 18-hole Los Lagos Golf Course is also included, and there’s a large park across the road, which is good for running.

The Silver Creek restaurant offers views of the property's pristine grounds alongside daily breakfast and lunch, plus a Sunday Champagne brunch. Breakfast is a vast buffet, with omelet and Belgian waffle stations. At dinner, the Palm Plaza Lounge serves small plates and sharing platters, and its terrace is a nice spot to sit and admire the estate.

All guest rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and a triple-sheeted bed. Parlor and Mansion suites are more modern and have a private balcony or patio, separate living space with a sleeper sofa, and some overlook the pool.

I enjoyed the beautiful Mansion and grounds, as well as the room and comfortable bed. It was quiet and nicely decorated. I was disappointed however with the service. When I explained to the desk clerk when we checked in at 4:00pm that we had a very early flight and would not be able to experience the breakfast that was included with the room, and asked if they could prepare us something that evening to take with us in the morning, she said no, because we had “booked through Travelzoo”. I told her all I was asking for was maybe a sweet roll like the ones that they serve on the breakfast buffet, and she still said no. At checkout, I told the manager,who said that they could have made us a boxed breakfast to take with us since the restaurant was open when we checked in.

This is a great option for trips to San Jose, slightly off the track but worth the savings if you don't need to be right in the middle of the action.

Relaxing without the hustling and bustling of families with children and the opportunity to have peace and quiet in a luxurious atmosphere.
Other Comments
Everyone was very nice, professional and on top of their game. This is a great place to come and hide or get lost for a few days. A chill place and with all the amenities needed. I could live here.
