          This hotel looks to be open air hallways. What is the security in this building? Can anyone get to the stairwells or are they only accessible thru a main entrance?

          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.
