Two new Marriott properties are now open in North San Jose’s Alviso area – Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn & Suites. Located at 656 America Center Court, the facilities represent an added 261 rooms to San Jose’s hotel-hungry landscape. Guests have been checking into the new, Bay-view properties since early August, but the formal opening was celebrated in September by California Assemblymember Ash Kalra, San Jose City Councilmember Lan Diep, Valley Water Board Member Richard Santos and Bob Gross, Alviso community leader.

The Marriott team at the opening included Josh Howard, General Manager; Director of Sales Mari Larios, AGM Robert Johnson, Front Office Manager Nicole Martinez and Rosemary Aguillar, Director of Housekeeping.

The hotels are located right at the waterfront with views over the San Francisco Bay all the way to San Francisco and Oakland to the north. The buildings in both properties are LEED Certified and feature state-of-the-art air conditioning systems and triple paned windows. The system is designed to respond to changes in the outdoor air temperature, and different sides of the building are independently controlled.

Residence Inn’s all-suite offering is perfect for the longer stay, with full kitchens, room to eat, work and dream, complimentary hot breakfast, evening socials and grocery delivery service.

Fairfield Inn & Suites offers king rooms, king suites and double queen rooms, space for work and relaxation, with a breakfast buffet and a lavish fitness center.

Guest amenities include an outdoor zen garden, putting green, pickleball and basketball court, and a heated saltwater pool. A fitness room, fire-pit, and BBQs round out the guest experience. The hotels are not only conveniently located to the office buildings of America Center but are also adjacent to the San Fransciso Bay Trail and guests will be able to easily access the Bay Area’s only Top Golf facility when it is completed in the near future.
