Hyatt Centric Mountain View is a gorgeous new hotel that is expected to open later this month. It is at 409 San Antonio Road. It’s a few doors down from Icon Movie Theater, across the street from We Work/Facebook, and overlooks a park, public art and a popular dog park. They invited me to go on a tour this week, even though everything wasn’t quite ready for photos, I did manage to take some. It’s so chic and I love it.
It’ll have 3 restaurants. The first floor restaurant and bar, Fairchilds Public House, has a patio and dogs are welcome. The chef specializes in casual, West Coast cuisine. It has plenty of outdoor comfy seating, couches, and a cool fire pit. The indoor seating includes a big “community table” with power outlets all the way around. There’s a private room that would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or employee party.
Can I just take a second here to mention the seating… This hotel has the most comfortable seating ever. There are interesting, colorful, stylish chairs tucked everyplace you look, chairs of every imaginable shape and style. I predict lots of instagrammable moments will be happening. Whoever picked out seating for this new Hyatt Centric Hotel did a fabulous job.
The hotel has 167 guest rooms. I looked inside some of them and the view of the Santa Cruz mountains and the sunset was spectacular. Of course I had to take pictures of the dog park while I was out on the balcony. All of the rooms have refrigerators and HD Smart TVs.
I really enjoyed looking at the artwork and there will eventually be an Art Guide created. Much of the art pays homage to Silicon Valley.
The hotel has lots event space. The main Cloud Ballroom features floor to ceiling glass and it can be opened on 2 sides. The round banquet tables are so pretty that they don’t need table cloths. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of banquet tables around here. There are other event areas, both indoor and outdoor, for seated or cocktail style functions, and they all seemed so glamorous and inviting.
The building is LEED Silver certified. And it also has a fitness center, pool, hot tub, business center, game room.
Hyatt Centric is right in the center of one of the best parts of our city. Have you heard the conversation about Mountain View eventually having 3 downtowns? It’s true, Castro Street, the San Antonio area, and the one that Google is building in North Bayshore. Hyatt Centric is in the heart of all the action in San Antonio area.
You’ll find about 20 restaurants within walking distance. I like Veggie Grill and The Counter. Safeway, just a few doors down, is open 24 hours. Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Sprouts are all very close, as are Walmart, Target and Kohl’s.
This place is going to do very well and we desperately needed more hotel rooms in our community. Welcome to Mountain View Hyatt Centric. You’re going to love it here!
