Travel Information

  • From San Jose Airport (SJC) The hotel is only 2 miles from the terminals and has a free guest shuttle. You can use shuttle telephones at baggage claim or call the hotel at 408-452-0200. Walking is not recommeneded as there may not be sidewalks everywhere.  
  • From San Francisco Airport (SFO) The hotel is 35 miles from SFO and ground transportation can be expensive (Taxi is >$100, Lyft >$50) if you do not plan to rent a car. If you have time, we recommend taking BART train from SFO to Millbrae (during weekday business hours you need to tranfer at San Bruno, but there is direct SFO-Millbrae train on weekends and nights, cost is $4). Then you need to take Caltrain southbound to San Jose Diridon station (takes about an hour, costs about $8). From there you can take Mountain View bound VTA light rail to Gish stop (costs $2), 6 minutes walk from the hotel. Alternatively, you can take free VTA #10 bus from Santa Clara Caltrain station (one before SJ Diridon) to San Jose airport (and then call the hotel shuttle), or all the way to Metro/Airport stop which is 15 minutes walk from the hotel. Both Santa Clara and San Jose Diridon Caltrain stations are only 3-4 miles from the hotel if you want to take Taxi/Uber/Lyft.
