    I stayed there for two nights and I liked how simple everything was. So near to some restaurants so you can have no problems with food. The room was nice, clean and modern. There are some open air seats where you can enjoy meditation

    There is a main entrance from the Lobby and for quick access there are some doors at the perimeter, but they only open with an active room key.

    Hello Mr. Pravin, The closest laundry would be Town and Country Cleaner, that is 6 minutes by car, unfortunately there aren't walking distance laundries; the address for this laundry is: 3933 Rivermark Plaza, Santa Clara.
