Stayed for two weeks on business trip to Intel. Was literally a last minute booking as I had booked another hotel and when I arrived at the other hotel the type of room I booked wasn’t available (booked a suite as two weeks in small room is not enjoyable and they had them all gone!). I rang Brookwood and they only had two rooms left, told them who I work with and they even honoured the company rate which was very decent. The room was great, very spacious, spotless clean and most importantly very decent tv channels! I didn’t cook in room but wouldn’t have had a problem if had to as everything was there and of high quality (even a dishwasher!). Pool and gym are typical, I used most days and were perfect for my needs. They give free detergent for laundry which is small touch but again the decent thing to do. Breakfast was good, light on evening food but fine for snack if needed, loads of gorgeous restaurants within 15 minutes drive so on site not needed. As said in other reviews the shower facet size was small and a little disappointing but if that’s the only thing somewhat lacking they’re doing a great job. Thanks Brookwood, will definitely stay again.
Much better and newer property then Larkspur landing next door, clean good facilities but service needs to improve a lot.
-Very clean hotel
-Even basic rooms are spacious and functional, designed for business traveler.
Within walking distance to Genentech and Intel facilities.
-There is a laundry, small pool and tiny exercise room
-No jacuzzi, no sauna, no formal restaurant per say (there is a bar for drinks and some food items like hummus, veggies, prawns with grapes, chips, etc)
- showers can benefit from increasing water pressure
- good window coverings for those of us sensitive to light.
- breakfast and light evening meal is included.
- front desk is disorganized and can’t answer basic questions!!!
- management has facility understaffed. The bartender also need to drive the shuttle for example. (She was lovely, extremely customer focused so I want to make sure it’s not perceived to be a criticism of her. It’s clearly the management who should have been better prepared for a busy week and arrange for appropriate staffing)
The other night, I was traveling on business and stayed at the Residence Inn in Hillsboro, OR. And it was fantastic. The lobby is warm and welcoming. The lobby has a sweet dining area and full bar. Next to the front desk, the hotel offers snacks, hot food, drinks, beer, wine, etc. This really came in handy.
The room itself looks more like an apartment than a hotel room. You walk in to a full kitchen. As someone who spends a lot of time traveling for work, being able to buy groceries and make yourself a "home" cooked meal is a real plus. The room also has a living room next to the bedroom with a big, thin television that swivels between the two. Finally, there is a huge, clean bathroom with as big a shower as you will see anywhere.
The extras at the Residence Inn include a great workout gym and an indoor pool. The area is very quite and safe. The Residence Inn in Hillsboro, OR. is a great place to stay in one of my favorite places in all the country.
Fairly new property, spanking clean. Good hot breakfast and clean pool area. We chose this hotel over the "Cascade station Marriott" because of proximity to coast (this helped us cut down the travel time next day - ability to start early late and still avoid traffic does wonders when travelling with fussy kids). I loved the standing shower bathroom which in my opinion is better than tub.
I however learned that this property doesn't have 2 queen bed configuration. The beds are wonderful but the sofa beds are not that great for a good sleep for adults (my 9 year old however loved the experience).
