I just returned from Hawthorn Suites in Santa Clara. The hotel is excellent and the service was incredible. They offered a full service hot breakfast and a full service dinner during happy hour, both were COMPLIMENTARY. The fitness room could use some weights to compliment the cardio equipment. They're a little on the high end for prices in the area,...

Having some business in Santa Clara/Silicon Valley I checked out the Hawthorne Suites as the #1 rated hotel in the area, and found that the ratings on TripAdvisor were spot on again. I never would have even looked at this place without the positive ratings and that would have been a miss indeed. The outside looks like a standard main...

Last week, my husband & I spent one night here, just prior to a 3 night stay at the Santa Clara Hyatt where my husband was attending a business conference. Honestly, we preferred the Hawthorn Suites in many ways and for the price, it certainly has a lot more to offer than the Hyatt (which was more than twice the...

I stayed on business for one night at the Hawthorn Suites in Santa Clara. The accommodations were average. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good.

Santa Clara Hawthorn Suites are spotless, very attractively decorated rooms at a very reasonable price around $100. Wi-fi is free.The beds are particularly comfortable. Lodging comes with a full breakfast with choices such as omelettes, bacon, fruit, pastries, sausages, and beverages. The staff was cheerful and helpful with directions to various destinations and good restaurant recommendations. A real bargain!

After reading reviews on tripadvisor, we decided on this hotel; with a pinch of salt though after reading some reviewers talking about the starbucks incentive. We reached the hotel late in the evening. The check-in process was quick and easy. We were allocated a room meant for the physically challenged. I asked them to move me to another room as...

Stayed at Hawthorn Suites in Santa Clara for 4 nights during a business trip in mid September, 2008. First time I have stayed at this hotel. Very clean, appeared to be recently remodeled.

We chose this hotel because of the close proximity to Santa Clara University. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to travel back and forth to the school in order to move my daughter into her apartment. Our room was clean with a very comfortable bed and nice linens. A nice variety of hot and cold foods were...
