The Ameswell Hotel
The Ameswell Hotel, A New Design And Technology-Oriented Independent Hotel In Silicon Valley, Is Now Open
Now open – 255 Rooms
Inspired by the backdrop of California's wilderness and Silicon Valley's legacy of unconventional thinking, this 255-room hotel brings together innovation, art, wellness, sustainability, and natural beauty, featuring an extensive art collection, multiple destination bar and restaurants, a library, meeting and event space, along with a resort-like setting that includes an outdoor heated salt water pool, wellness/fitness center, an event lawn, recreational field, and direct access to hiking and biking trails.
The Ameswell Hotel is located steps from Google, Apple, and Facebook's Silicon Valley headquarters, as well as Microsoft's sustainable campus, Moffett Field, Shoreline Amphitheatre, Levi's Stadium, Stanford University and many of Mountain View's bustling restaurants, bars, and shops. With a commitment to sustainability in many forms, the property will feature hyper-efficient heating and cooling; solar panels; LED lighting throughout; indigenous plant species; organic soaps/shampoos/lotions; no single use plastic; electric car charging stations; and bicycle connections to the surrounding corporate campuses.
Dispersed on the grounds are the hotel's three restaurants: Roger, the hotel's main bar and restaurant with garage-style doors connecting the indoor/outdoor seating featuring seasonal California cuisine married with Mediterranean flavors along with craft cocktails and wine on tap; the Flyby, a quick and casual all day lobby café offering everything from La Colombe coffee to made-to-order and grab-and-go meals; and the Airstream Bar, a retrofitted vintage trailer serving up casual Cali-inspired cuisine intended to enjoy outdoors by the pool, lawn, or firepits. The beverage program, concepted by James Beard winner Shelley Lindgren and her husband Greg, focuses on wines from nearby small producers, while the cocktails feature unique techniques inspired by NASA astronauts. As the first hotel to feature Bear Robotic's Servi, a self-driving indoor delivery robot, the restaurants are extremely tech-forward, boasting top of the line kitchen equipment with precise food temperature programming for quality control and technology to reduce food waste, and offering the ease of touchless ordering and payment options through mobile phones. Furthering their commitment to sustainability, The Ameswell has eliminated 96% of single-use plastic on premises, and solely uses biodegradable or reusable containers at all restaurants.
The hotel's 255 spacious guestrooms were designed by BAMO with comfort in mind, and all feature floor-to-ceiling windows, statement graphic wall-coverings, punches of California poppy orange, and rich California Black Walnut finishes that elevate a vibe that is cutting-edge, West Coast casual. Detail and craftsmanship punctuate the space via custom-designed lighting by Granville McAnear Lighting Design and locally handcrafted blue fireclay tile featured in the bathrooms, while design of the custom desks is inspired by an airplane wing. Every room features integrated technology and custom touches to remind you where you are, the global center for innovation and creativity, such as a medical-grade air filtration system that ensures guest rooms never share air, advanced water filtration, and exceptional sound quality, plus 100% organic toiletries by cult favorite Juice Beauty, and ethically-sourced coffee and tea by local Santa Cruz company, Steeped.
