The new hotel, with views of the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, is currently known as the Sainte Claire, and will receive a transformation before opening under the Westin brand.
Brian Povinelli, the brand’s global brand leader, said, ‘The Westin San Jose will be a terrific addition to our growing portfolio, offering travellers a revitalising urban retreat in the ‘Capital of Silicon Valley. Here, guests will enjoy all of Westin brand’s signature programmes and amenities, designed to inspire well-being and send guests home feeling better than when they arrived.’
The Westin San Jose has 155 guestrooms and 16 suites, a full service restaurant and 10,000 square feet of meeting space with a business centre. The hotel is also hosting a WestinWORKOUT Gym with complimentary equipment and facilities available year-round.
Allison Reid, the senior vice president of North America Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, the owner of the brand, said, ‘Westin continues to be a strong performer and is capturing a growing share of conversion opportunities in dynamic markets across North America. A long-time developer favourite, Westin has emerged as an international market leader and is on track to open its 200th hotel in the next 12 months.’
The Westin San Jose will feature the brand’s signature amenities, a Westin Heavenly Bed in rooms, and a SuperFoodsRX menu in the restaurant.
