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 and separate living space with a sleeper sofa. Some overlook the pool.

Room was old and carpet dirty. Our room was not cleaned during day. Enjoyed the breakfast which was included during our last stay. This time it not included and we were told our only option was the buffet or room service.

Grounds, buildings and rooms are lovely. Last time we stayed on a TravelZoo, a beautiful breakfast buffet was provided at no extra cost. Sadly this time buffet cost was $18 per. Disappointing, but I'd still stay here again. Vaguely funny: Asked desk for some extra coffee pods to help us make an early departure. They sent a guy with ONE! Seriously? He came back a while later with another. A nit. Maybe just new/young staff.

We were given a microscopic odd shaped room faced to walkway. The room is so dirk with one small window. It was quiet. I did not here much airplane noise. However, I don't think that was 315 SQF & deluxe a all. The location is middle of housing area & faraway from anywhere except a park is front of the hotel.

The airplanes fly over frequently but after a while you do not notice it. Do not hear it in rooms so that is good.

The beauty of the old, historic building, plus the lovely park right across the street, with walking paths.

The breakfast was not quite as good as what we would have thought, for a hotel like this.
