Bits, Bytes & Beds: Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley Opens
Service, Style and Technology Come Together in the World's High-Tech Capital
TORONTO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world's leading luxury hotel company, is pleased to announce the opening of its 70th property, Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto, affording unrivaled comfort in the heart of the high-tech capital of the world.
Located at the gateway to Palo Alto, the birthplace of Silicon Valley, and just five minutes from Stanford University, this intimate Hotel is the crown jewel of the City of East Palo Alto's ambitious redevelopment project at University Circle. Rising ten stories in a sleek, curving facade of shimmering glass designed by Hill Glazier Architects of Palo Alto, the Hotel features 200 rooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, providing dramatic views of the surrounding Santa Cruz Mountains and San Francisco Bay. The roof top lap-pool, fitness centre, and Spa - with its seven treatment rooms - offer the opportunity to maintain a worklife balance for guests.
Throughout the Hotel, a natural harmony of wood and stone celebrates the warm, northern California style. Rich vertical grain Douglas fir and Mekore, an African cherry wood, are complemented by earth tones in fabrics, paint tones, and furnishings. Well-appointed guest rooms feature 42" plasma televisions with HDTV programming, up-to-the-minute technology including WiFi internet, expansive desk/work spaces, comfortable divans, and laptop safes in every room. Extra-spacious marble bathrooms include double basin vanities, deep soaking tubs, separate glass-walled showers, and flat screen televisions.
Quattro Restaurant and Bar showcases contemporary Italian cuisine, the creation of Italian born Executive Chef Alessandro Cartumini, accompanied by boutique wines from Italy, California, and around the world. Quattro offers something rare in the Mid-Peninsula area: outdoor dining for up to 75 people in a lush, landscaped patio that includes a waterfall and sleek fire pit.
The Hotel is designed to handle a variety of events, from small board meetings to conferences, galas, and weddings. Stylish, and fully equipped with built-in technology, the ballroom, two executive meeting rooms, and two boardrooms offer over 7,000 square feet of flexible indoor function space.
To meet the needs of today's global business traveller, the Hotel is fully equipped to support the most demanding presentation and communication requirements. The Hotel is equipped for live web casting, smooth video conferencing, and instantaneous download and file transfer. More importantly, all of this technology is backed up by the Hotel's on-site, highly trained staff to ensure a seamless event, no matter how sophisticated the technology requirements may be.
"While all of these physical facilities are important, our primary goal is to provide our guests with highly personalized, attentive, and caring service," says General Manager Robert Whitfield. "Our philosophy is simple - to anticipate our guests' needs and delight them with an exceptional experience, time and again."
