Near the corporate offices in Mountain View, and a short drive away from central Castro Street

Map of Residence Inn Palo Alto Mountain View

Located on one of the busier roads in Mountain View, the immediate area around the Residence Inn Palo Alto Mountain View lacks the small town charm of downtown's Castro Street, but is convenient for business travelers. A Hertz rental facility and an Office Depot can be found across the street, and several high-profile companies are within a short driving distance.

Mountain View is located south of Palo Alto in Silicon Valley, and while it is home to the headquarters of several companies -- including Google, Intuit, and LinkedIn -- it also has a small town feel. The city was named for its beautiful views of the Santa Cruz Mountains that can be enjoyed throughout the city's 32 parks. A pedestrian-friendly city, Mountain View has a small downtown area centered around Castro Street. In the summer, these streets are often shut to traffic for festivals and parades. On Sundays, downtown hosts a farmer's market with local produce.
