[802.3af] Re: Hotel in the area for 28/4/03


Regarding hotels near the (potential) meeting site, both the:
Hilton Santa Clara              (new, about 1 year old)
4949 Great American Parkway
Santa Clara, CA
The Westin Santa Clara
5101 Great America Pkwy
Santa Clara, CA
are within easy walking distance (between 5 & 8 minutes) of Nortel (they are immediately north at the corner of Tasman & Gt America). Both of them are also immediately adjacent to a streetcar stop to take you to either downtown San Jose or downtown Mountain View. I know the Hilton has a free airport shuttle. The Westin doesn't seem to.

Also within walking distance to the south is:
Santa Clara Marriott    (free airport shuttle to/from San Jose)
2700 Mission College Boulevard
(at the corner of Great America Parkway)
Santa Clara, CA 95054

Phone: 408 988 1500
Fax: 408 727 4353
Holiday Inn     (free airport shuttle to/from San Jose)
SANTA CLARA, CA 95054-1210
Toll-Free: 1800-5865691
Tel: 1-408-2358900
Fax: 1-408-9880976

After these four you pretty much will need a car unless you come from some less obvious and more distant hotel and take public transit. There are an enormous number of hotels in the area that service both the business needs of Silicon Valley and the recreational travelers to Great America Amusement Park (next door to us). Of the 3 above I would say they all are typical business grade hotels and you should pick from them based on what sort of web deal you can get. The Holiday Inn caters to a more recreational crowd.

I hope this helps.
