Rated 4 out of 5 by Weichen This hotel is great
We stayed for a week, the staffs are nice especially Sam in the lounge. Every room guests are like his old friends by his warm hospitality and even remembered guests names.
There is one thing needs to be improved is we requested for late check out on the last day, but the house keeping knocks my door 4 times, finally someone called and asked the check out time, seems the front desk doesn't let the cleaning staffs know our late check out time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saurabh311 Awesome hotel!
Sheraton Sunnyvale is an excellent business hotel to stay in Bay Area. Best part about the hotel is its staff, front desk people are very nice and engage in friendly conversations. They changed my room type based on my request, and the room was really big and comfortable. Pool and jacuzzi were good too. Hotel shuttle service was very useful. Internet was actually high speed, which in unusual in the US hotels.
Though hotel is located close to offices, restaurants etc. are not walking distance so that is a concern. One more not so great thing was lack of vegetarian options in the room service menu and in the Faz restaurant. They should address it as many international travelers with varied food preferences stay at the hotel.
Overall very good stay.

I had a pleasant stay at your establishment. My last night there, I had a leak in my bathroom, and the staff there moved me into a better room, hassle free.

From the check in to Sam's hospitality in the Club room, was a great stay. Perfect place to relax when traveling for work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Travelalot33 Nice weekend retreat
We spent a weekend and enjoyed the pool and the buffet breakfast. The pool was unusually warm for December and very nice to swim in. Room was spacious and hotel was very quiet as it seems it has a mostly business client focus that stay Sunday night - Thursday night. Staff were helpful, exercise room adequate, and Faz, the in-hotel restaurant, had nice appetizers in the evening when the Club Lounge was not serving food on Saturday night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TNL101 Friendly Hotel Staffs
Staffs at the this hotel are very helpful, and friendly. They go above and beyond to help you with any of your requests or questions. I am grateful that Starwood sets a high bar to train their hotel's staffs. It is very important for you to be able to trust someone, feel safe and can relax when you are away from home. Whether, you are on a business trip or on a leisure, I will recommend this hotel for both groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestCoastZ Sheraton Sunnyvale stay
3rd time this fall that I've stayed at the Sheraton Sunnyvale. It starts with their reservation folks, fast, efficient, and fun to talk to in the process. They get it! I checked in and the front desk person offered me a pot of tea while they took care of my check in and room readied - it was last minute stay, don't ask. But, yes I did say they made me a pot of tea. The rooms are very comfortable, large, nice HD TV, wireless in the rooms and lobby, etc. Housekeeping was spot on (well they left no spots actually). Dining at the FAZ was fantastic. If you get there at the right time, there's a piano player! Although the dining room is very comfortable and appropriate for a great dinner conversation, there's also the electricity of the close by lounge. Great food, service is 5 star. Check out is easy and the staff even dropped out party off at dinner so we did not have to drive. My bill was delivered via email saving the time and space of dealing with the paperwork. All in all, this is a convenient (right off the intersections of 101 and 237) location, well managed location with a very professional staff. Thank you for the great 3 stays. Mr Z

Rated 2 out of 5 by Platinum8 Worst SPG experience so far
Being a frequent traveller, I've stayed in SPG properties from New York to Vietnam (just to give a perspective: this year alone I stayed at SPG for over 120 nights). I would rather expect the worst SPG property to be somewhere in suburbs of Bangkok (Le Meridien of which is actually quite amazing) rather when in Sunnyvale, CA.
Experience started with a locked door on arrival at the hotel (apparently the neighborhood is not safe, which does not explain why there was no-one at front desk at 10pm), followed by entry in to my room by cleaning staff while I was in a shower in the morning despite "do not disturb" sign on the door, followed by a peaceful sounds of spanish language enthusiastically discussing guests while sorting garbage just below my window at 8 am.
From the inside the property looks like a motel on route 66 with some touchups and Microsoft signs at the business lounge.
The SPG lounge breakfast experience was very healthy - selection of: toast, english muffin, cereal and coffee. When I asked if there is anything else - I was delighted with a slice of melon and a yoghurt from a fridge in the back.
To be fair I must say that the staff at the reception did its best to make things better, but there was just so much they could do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusinessTraveler21 Relief from another Hotel
I came to this hotel after having checked in to another hotel, but found that the quality and condition of the rooms were unacceptable.
The Sheraton was fantastic. Clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff and an overall great experience. I would recommend the hotel to anyone travel to Mt. View for business.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mau79 Tired and Noisy
The feeling overall of the hotel is old and tired.
The walls are incredibly thin, I could hear the faucet of the room next to mine, and the mini bar all day (and night) long - not to mention the people, tv's, and other not so pleasant situations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dee0714 Nice Hotel but FAZ not a place for a wedding reception
Just encountered a few hiccups with hotel staff with the planning of my daughter's wedding. But overall very accommodating with block of rooms. You just need to stay on top of them so nothing slips through the cracks.
We had our daughter's wedding reception at Faz Restaurant and it was the worst wedding planning experience ever! Promises not kept, contracts wrong, and we went through three Sales Managers...very poor turnover rate! This was supposed to be a enjoyable experience and it's not enjoyable when continued stress was placed upon the bride & the bride's parent's. And beware...carefully think through your bar bill options BEFORE your event. We trusted the advice given to us (since THEY were experienced in wedding receptions) and we got dealt a big shock not even 3 hours into the reception. If you use them be prepared to micro-manage them through the entire process because things won't get done. You may also encounter problems with the language barrier...so be sure your points are getting across to the staff. The food was good but the customer service was horrible.

Not only is the Sheraton in Sunnyvale and destination I look forward each year, the staff are life savers!
I got quite ill while I was there and the employees went all out to get me medicine, make sure I was comfortable in every way and give me a super late check-out (I had a midnight flight). This hotel is one in a million. Professional, discreet, considerate and able to meet the needs of each of their guests with superb efficiency.
I remain in awe of the kindness and dedication of this hotel and can't wait to get back there next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cruiser Needs updating
This hotel is nicely located and has pretty grounds. But the hallway to our room smelled like a convalescent hospital. The room itself smelled old and damp. There have been some updates and the bed was comfortable, though the thinner quilt was not double sheeted as is usually the norm with Starwood properties.

I travel to Silicon Valley 5-6 times a year, and always stay at the Sheraton Sunnyvale. Their staff is friendly and helpful; the rooms and hotel setting is very nice with the pools and garden. And FAZ Restaurant is my favorite when I'm traveling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nima27 Poor Experience
The hotel is outdated. It looks like a low-end apartment building. There are not even elevators from the first floor to the second, so be prepared to carry your bags up the stairs.
The service was a mixed bag. Some of the staff are great, while others need additional training-- e.g., my experience with Anita was terrible and soured my entire stay, while my experience with Jeff (the shuttle driver) was great.
In the end, because of the outdated appearance of the hotel and poor service I must recommend against booking this hotel. There are plenty of other hotel choices that provide better service and accommodations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TravelinMan2K13 Very Disappointing
I'll cut to the chase: I was very disappointed in my experience here. First, there was no acknowledgement of being Platinum, except when I chose my amenity. This lack of acknowledgement extended to my room (which I had to go back and get a map to find). Not only was there any upgrade (or even the FEEL of an upgrade), I was given a room that faced the freeway instead of the pool/courtyard. I didn't care so much about the view, but the noise from the cars was bothersome and affected my sleep before a busy day of meetings.
Additionally, there wasn't a power outlet anywhere. I had to move the mattress and unplug a lamp to finally plug my phone in. Given the awful placement of the outlet and the short length of my cord, I had to leave the phone on the bed, rather than the nightstand.
Suffice it to say, it did not feel like a Platinum Starwood experience. It was very disappointing.

We were in Room 456. Very roomy and comfortable after a long drive from Santa Barbara. Looking forward to a nice shower before heading out, I had to wait 30 minutes while the shower drained after my wife's shower. Not a very clean feeling standing in soapy water while showering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeffreus Everything was good with one exception...
My stay with the hotel worked out very well. It was convenient to the airports in San Jose and San Francisco, and the office that I was working in during the week. I would suggest that the restaurant should open at 6am for breakfast, for people who start their workday at 7am.

I arranged for our High School Cross Country Team to stay at the Sunnyvale Sheraton while attending the Stanford Invitational and I can not stress enough how polite and helpful all of the staff were at the hotel. Everything I needed was taken care of and in the most courteous manner. It is hard to find good customer service but we definitely found it here.

During our weekend stay at the hotel in order to relax at the hotel pool the pool area was occupied by app 50 kids playing ball and screaming loud both saturday and sunday all days!!!!! A group of baseball kids was obviously given the possibility to use the pool during all weekend.
This was not mentioned in advance at time of booking and is not acceptable. Really bad!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMBNewlywed Decent and clean property close to Shoreline but.....
The Sheraton Sunnyvale... on the plus side it is immaculately clean and fairly updated, the common areas and exterior are fresh and clean - which is why I love Starwood. It's a very nice hotel for proximity to the ampitheater and Google. The pool looks inviting. On the down side but could be fixed: no free wifi (really?), not exactly cheerful or solicitous front desk (maybe just me but it seemed like she was doing me a favor), Windows 8 in the business center = atrocious, broiling hot hallways. Things that can't be fixed: no elevators - who wants to lug stuff up a flight of stairs outside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by august123 Not worth the price
My room was average at best. There was nothing in this facility that made up for the fact that it cost more than the other hotels in the area I have stayed at. The fan in my room sounded like an airplane taking off when it cycled on. Plus the internet was NOT free and there wasn't a free breakfast. I have stayed in more comfortable places, with quiet room fans that gave me both internet and breakfast at no extra charge and the daily room rate was much less. I booked here because I had to attend a last minute meeting and other hotels in the area were booked. I will be sure to book early enough next time so I can stay somewhere else.
