Rosewood Sand Hill

Where Silicon Valley goes to unplug
Rosewood Sand Hill occupies a prime location in the heart of California’s techy Silicon Valley, but its 16 manicured acres and expansive views of the Santa Cruz Mountains make it feel like a plush, secluded retreat. While plenty of business meetings are conducted here, the Menlo Park hotel camouflages those deals with high-end design.

Opened in 2009, the luxury hotel offers 121 guest rooms and suites with vaulted ceilings, marble bathrooms and the type of modern amenities guests expect in this high-tech hub: bedside controls, a Phillips SoundBar on the flat-screen television, and even a walk-in closet to hang business and bathing suits alike.

The setting is within striking distance of the Facebook, Google and Apple campuses, but far enough for corporate travelers to doff their work duds and ensconce themselves in everything from a bottle of local wine to a CardioCore fitness class.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Following the secluded drive to Rosewood Sand Hill’s entry, you’ll be greeted with a soothing fountain and towering palm trees before entering a sleek lobby of white marble desks and splashes of sunshine.

• The lobby is also the first glimpse of the luxury hotel’s elaborate art collection, which features contemporary pieces from local artists – many of whom are connected to Stanford University, which is just two minutes down the road.

• The large, heated pool at the center of Rosewood Sand Hill’s lushly landscaped grounds is the hub of activity during the day, as guests lounge beneath olive trees and mop their brows with chilled towels provided by the attentive staff.

• For a more intensive form of relaxation, visit the adjacent Sense Spa, which boasts 13 treatment rooms and a menu of services in tune with the northern California location – coastal seaweeds and local walnuts create exfoliating scrubs, and seasoned estheticians provide professional peels and facials.

• The grand nature of this 16-acre resort, mixed with its relaxed California ranch-inspired architecture, creates a comfortable vibe where you’ll want to spend an evening curled up by the fireplace on the outdoor terrace or an afternoon lounging by the heated outdoor pool.
Things to Know
• The neighboring Alex Chases Salon, run by the famed San Francisco stylist of the same name, is renowned for its coloring services.

The Restaurants

• Every Sunday chef Agustin offers a menu of delicious brunch classics that reflect his philosophy of refined yet approachable dishes alongside a choice of more than half a dozen different champagnes and sparkling wines by the glass plus a selection of refreshing cocktails.
