Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

It is a beautiful building. Happy hour is great. The park next door is wonderful. The staff was pleasant.
Other Comments
The location is wedding/party central. They have multiple events booked all day and night. So you end up having to walk around/thru other peoples parties. Our room was right next to the banquet room. To get to our room we had to walk through photo booths for two weddings (one on Sat, one on Sun.) The hallway to our room was the dumping ground for chairs, party supplies, etc. The music from the Sun wedding was unbelievable noisy. (we were not in our room Sat. night until after midnight). The pool was also very disappointing. It is far too undersized for the number of rooms, and completely overrun by noisy kids, running, jumping, screaming. People would save a table for four and two lounge chairs and then leave for brunch... two hours! Other guests would not have a place to sit and attempt to relax. Both days at breakfast we had to ask for juice and coffee refills, once having to get up and get it ourselves.
