Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Spacious, inviting rooms with elegant, modern design
  • Beautifully landscaped property with mountain views
  • Sand Hill Road location convenient for business travelers
  • Family-friendly atmosphere, and kid-friendly outdoor pool
  • Michelin-starred dining at Madera
  • Pampering treatments at Sense Spa
  • Hopping bar scene on the weekends is popular with the wealthy locals
  • State-of-the-art fitness center
  • Pets allowed

Cons

  • Nearby Highway 280 can be a bit noisy at rush hours (mostly a white-noise hum)
  • One of the priciest options in the area
  • Fee for Wi-Fi use (somewhat ironic in Silicon Valley)

Bottom Line

The stylish and modern Rosewood Sand Hill leaves very little to be desired for either business travelers or families. The 121 rooms are bright and airy, complete with HD TVs with surround sound, spacious showers (the rain showerheads have fantastic pressure), and large, sunny patios and balconies with views of the beautiful natural surroundings. Michelin-starred dining at Madera, a luxury spa, stunning landscaping, and a family-friendly outdoor pool round out the experience. It's one of the top luxury properties in Silicon Valley, and proves why the Rosewood brand's reputation is well-deserved.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in Menlo Park, in the heart of Silicon Valley

The Rosewood Sand Hill is located on Sand Hill Road, which is like the Wall Street of the venture capital and technology industries. But even though this is may be one of the best hotels for business travelers in the country, casual pleasure seekers come from all over to take advantage of the area's gorgeous climate, which tends to be warmer and less rainy than San Francisco and Palo Alto.

Originally the site of vast prune orchards, Silicon Valley became epicenter of America's tech industry. But tech geeks and entrepreneurs aren't the only ones attracted to the home of Google, Facebook and Stanford University. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and attractions nearby, and even more a short drive away in San Jose, Palo Alto and Santa Clara (not to mention nearby San Francisco).

Supporters of the arts will enjoy the area's theater offerings (including the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford) and nearby artists' boutiques. Nature lovers will find plenty of activities here, from hiking in Nearby Santa Cruz Mountains to exploring nearby parks. Make sure to rent a car to get around; this is the suburbs, after all.

  • 28-minute drive from San Francisco International Airport
  • 24-minute drive from San Jose International Airport
  • 45-minute drive from Oakland International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Stanford University
  • 10-minute drive to shopping at the Stanford Mall
  • 10-minute drive to the Allied Arts Guild boutiques and cafes
  • 12-minute drive to fantastic dining in downtown Palo Alto
  • 13-minute drive to Filoli Estate historic site
  • 15-minute drive to Palo Alto Foothills Park
  • 35-minute drive to Candlestick Park, home of the San Francisco 49ers

 Bottom Line

The stylish and modern Rosewood Sand Hill leaves very little to be desired for either business travelers or families. The 121 rooms are bright and airy, complete with HD TVs with surround sound, spacious showers (the rain showerheads have fantastic pressure), and large, sunny patios and balconies with views of the beautiful natural surroundings. Michelin-starred dining at Madera, a luxury spa, stunning landscaping, and a family-friendly outdoor pool round out the experience.
