Whether you’re a techie in Silicon Valley on business or embracing your inner geek-chic while on vacation, Avatar Hotel makes a great home base for a stay in the area. Adorned with neon-colored furniture, retro-chic lighting and toy robots, the lobby is a nice spot for catching up with friends or reading a favorite book.

Stop by the on-site IHOP for crepes, omeletes and morning coffee. In the evening, take a break at the complimentary reception at Commons Lounge where beer and wine flow freely, Mondays-Thursdays from 5-10 PM. Plus, catch a game on the flat-screen TV while kicked back in a recliner.

During warmer months, visit the spacious outdoor pool lined with umbrellas and chairs. It’s also an ideal spot for sipping a cool beverage and eating a bite of lunch.

After a long day in the city or at business meetings, unwind in a guest room with complimentary Wi-Fi access and a mini-fridge for storing snacks and drinks. Be mindful that many windows and doors open to hallways, so noise may be a factor in some rooms.

  • “Up-to-date technology expected in a Silicon Valley Hotel” --
  • “The hotel is targeted toward ‘tech road warriors,’ with a network of techie amenities ‘designed to appeal to start-up entrepreneurs as well as established technology gurus’” -- HotelChatter

    A $20 credit to IHOP was part of the rate. They did not give us the voucher. Gave us pastries and juice instead. bait and switching!
