There’s one reason why Hotel Valencia Santana Row is a good place to visit any time of the year: the weather. San Jose is significantly sunnier year round than its often gray and blustery cousin, San Francisco. This makes staying in San Jose an option during every season. If you’re looking for more activities, you may want to travel to Hotel Valencia and the Santana Row area in the summertime. The complex often has fun events going on during the warmer months (like its free summer music series as well as the popular monthly wine and cheese tastings at Cielo, its seasonal rooftop terrace). The holiday season is another spectacular time to visit the Silicon Valley hotel, since the stores in Santana Row (such as Anthropologie, Kate Spade and Ted Baker) all deck out their windows with festive displays, and the moderate weather makes for a lovely outdoor shopping experience.
