In addition to its sustainability standards, Hotel Nia has recently been recognized as the best "Hospitality Project" in 2018, as one of 26 recipients of the Silicon Valley Business Journals' Structures Awards—distinguishing the best projects, deals, and leases in Silicon Valley. The property was also presented with an Award of Merit (Residential/Hospitality, Northern California) from ENR California's 2018 Best Projects competition.
