    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.
