Review Summary



  • Isolated location not within walking distance of attractions
  • Living area in the suites are not separate from the bedroom
  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The W Silicon Valley is located in Newark, a quiet and family-friendly area that is fairly isolated from local attractions. This 174-room hotel offers the sleek and stylish rooms that are characteristic of the W brand, along with a secluded outdoor pool and popular bar. All rooms here are suites -- with wet bars, mini-fridges, and lounge areas -- but the living area isn't separate from the bedroom. The (somewhat minimal) action of Silicon Valley is located a 20-minute drive away in Palo Alto, but the W does offer nice perks such as a 24-hour fitness center, outdoor fire pit, and a pet-friendly attitude.

Near the water in Newark, across the bay from Palo Alto

Map of W Silicon Valley

Newark is a small residential town surrounded by the city of Fremont. It is part of Silicon Valley, but the vibe is somewhat different as it sits on the other side of the Dumbarton Bridge across the bay from Palo Alto. There's a few corporate offices and only a couple of major companies, such as Cargill Salt. However, it is one of the most family-friendly cities in the Valley, with a huge indoor water park and over 15 parks and recreation areas.

The hotel is near the water on the western side of Newark, and is only a short drive from Coyote Hills Regional Park.
