Wichita, Kansas (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
When Hotel Sierra San Jose opens its doors today, it will usher in a new level of hospitality to Silicon Valley’s “Golden Triangle”. Located @ First, a contemporary development near the crossroads Highways 237, 880, and 101, Hotel Sierra will offer both business and leisure travelers a cutting-edge and contemporary retreat for short or lengthy stays, guests are privy to intuitive, value-added amenities; a smart, fashion-forward design; and unsurpassed service.
A departure from conventional hotels, Hotel Sierra San Jose has an arresting design coupled with sleek social spaces. The 164 sophisticated guestrooms, studios and one and two-bedroom suites look as if they’ve been plucked from the pages of some glossy architectural magazine with thoughtful floor plans that are more lifestyle oriented. The simplistic yet striking interiors are cloaked in soothing neutral hues with rich chocolate accents and bursts of burnt orange that provide a complementary and welcoming contrast to Hotel Sierra’s modern and interactive space.
Focused on delivering a guest-driven experience, Hotel Sierra offers select amenities that effortlessly bridge the gap between domestic routine and responsibility with life on the road. A complimentary, bistro-style breakfast coupled with full-size, contemporary kitchens (suites) and dual-dedicated fitness centers help maintain daily health regiments while free Wi-Fi, flat panel televisions with expanded cable, an interactive business lounge and the weekday edition of USA Today help to keep guests connected. Unexpected indulgences include clock radios with iPod docking stations to keep personal playlists on cue, waffle terry robes for those who have a hankering to lounge a bit longer, Starbucks-brewed coffee, guest shuttle and free parking, laundry and dry cleaning service plus a 24-hour onsite market.
“Hotel Sierra takes life on the road in a new direction,” said Yann de Fabrique, general manager. “Our intuitive amenities and guest-empowered approach enable travelers to own the overall experience and maintain a sense of routine while away from their comfort zones. It was our parent company, Wichita-based LodgeWorks, who were the trailblazers of the suite hotel concept founding Residence Inn in the early '80s. So it only seems natural that they be on the cutting edge of the hospitality evolution.”
In addition to intuitive amenities and smart, sophisticated design, Hotel Sierra places an incredible emphasis on unsurpassable service. The professional staff are proven leaders in their fields who are skilled at anticipating guests needs at every junction. The corporate playbook has been abandoned empowering each staff member to make decisions based on real-time circumstance rather than governed by a remote board of directors or big box bureaucracy.
After a day of non-stop meetings or city sightseeing, guests can indulge in stylish sips and small plates served amid an urban chic, open-air backdrop where the attitude is buttoned-down. The H BAR and alfresco patio, joined by floor-to-ceiling retractable doors, create a stunning indoor/outdoor ambiance ideal for casual cocktail hour or an upscale evening affair. A new haute spot for locals and guests alike, patrons can dine, imbibe and socialize in style, rack-up a game of pool or linger late night in lounge seating that surrounds the outdoor fire pit.
This au courant destination hotel also lends itself well to corporate and social events. Offering stylish and flexible indoor and outdoor space ranging from 828-2592 square feet with a maximum guest capacity of 220, Hotel Sierra provides the perfect backdrop for any occasion. The alfresco patio and pool deck also provide ideal pre-function space. Hotel Sierra offers full-service capabilities including an on-site dedicated contact, customizable booking pages and catering as well as state-of-the art audio and visual equipment.
Located a short distance from San Jose International Airport, Hotel Sierra is also just minutes from many major corporations and a short distance to shops, restaurants and entertainment. Nearby attractions and venues include savvy Santana Row, San Jose State University, the Gilroy Outlet Stores, and the Discovery Museum. For those who want to visit San Francisco, the City by the Bay is less than an hour north and makes for an excellent daytrip.
