Central location for business travelers, close to variety of corporate headquarters
The Sheraton Sunnyvale is located about two miles north of downtown's popular Heritage District. While leisure travelers might feel isolated from local activities, business travelers will find the location convenient to the area's variety of corporate headquarters. There are several high-profile technology companies like Microsoft, Yahoo, and Google that have offices in the area. While there aren't many attractions within walking distance of the hotel, plenty can be found within a short drive including the Sunnyvale Golf Course, Civic Square Shopping Center, and various restaurants, wineries, and bars.
Sunnyvale is best known as the home of Yahoo. This largely commercial and residential area doesn't have much to offer for entertainment and culture, but Sunnyvale tops the list as one of the safest cities in the country.
Silicon Valley business travelers are drawn to the Sheraton Sunnyvale hotel for its comfort and close proximity to the area's corporate headquarters. This 173-room hotel is made up of two-story buildings that surround a huge Olympic-size outdoor heated pool and appealing sundeck. While there is no elevator available to rooms on the second floor, all of the large rooms offer crisp linens, free in-room coffee, and recent upgrades like flat-screen TVs and spacious work desks. More convenient perks include a 24-hour fitness center, free parking, and a Mediterranean spot -- Faz Restaurant -- that is devoted to serving fresh and flavorful food. While there are limited activities within walking distance and there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi, the manicured grounds with a gazebo garden are lovely.
