The Grand Hotel Sunnyvale in Silicon Valley has announced its upcoming $25 million annex will be completed June 1, 2021. A 60,000-square-foot addition will span four floors with 51 new rooms, two meeting spaces and a new gym. In total, the hotel will offer 155 rooms and villas, three indoor meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 80, an outdoor events space for up to 150, an outdoor heated pool, and more for business and leisure travelers.
The new Deluxe Rooms include queen or king-sized beds, floor-to-ceiling windows and full-size bathrooms with granite counter tops, dual vanity mirrors and a Jacuzzi tub. Additionally, the rooms are equipped with N LCD TV, iHome docking station, mini-fridge, robes and 110 mbps Wi-Fi. The property's 30 private villas are spacious one-bedroom suites with 800-square-foot private terraces, fireplace and a full kitchen, efficient for extended stays. Recognizing the need for touchless amenities, Alexa is also installed to allow guests to call for room service or set a wake-up call. Contactless check-in is also provided.
The new 500- and 600-square-foot meeting spaces will be available for corporate meetings, business events and special occasions. The tech-savvy rooms can host 40 at round tables, 30 in a "U" setup and up to 80 in a theater- or reception-like arrangement. Outdoor spaces for meetings, weddings and other events are offered, as well. Contracts will be available from June 2021 onward.
The Grand Hotel is currently open for essential stays only, following the California Travel Advisory For Non-Essential Travel. It operates in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Department of Health guidelines. The hotel is ADA-compliant and pet-friendly; use of the luxury house car, complimentary continental breakfast in room, daily happy hour from California's local boutique wineries, 24-hour room service, and more are also offered for guests.
The Grand Hotel Sunnyvale, and sister property, The Cupertino Hotel, are under the direction of area hotel general manager Claudio Bono, who was recently recognized as a top nominee for the California Hotel and Lodging Association's "Outstanding General Manager of the Year 2020" award.
