Before we booked we were not told the pool and jacuzzi were both out of order. The main reason why we booked in this hotel was to use those amenities. Also we were send to the wrong room which was not cool because we had so much stuff to carry all the way back down.

This was my second visit to the Domain hotel. It never disappoints. The desk agents are always very engaging and personable. Jeff and Tommy at Bytes Cafe and bar are amazingly efficient and personable. I will return and hopefully soon! :)

Unique hotel

Very comfy room and with thoughtful styling flair made it feel so much more personal than your average hotel room.

Flexible with schedule changes

Location: A great CHICAGO pizza (that's deep dish, for all you New Yorkers) restaurant is just around the corner.
Our length of stay changed twice on our last day at The Domain, due to car breakdown etc. The staff were very accomodating and understanding.

Very nice hotel

The beds were quite comfortable. I had a great night's sleep. The walls seemed to be sound proof. We didn't hear anyone around us. The only negative was the fairly big spider in the room that scared my kids. I called the front desk for a broom or something to help me remove it because I was too short to reach it. I was told maintenance would come. No one came. So just before bedtime, I had to jump up and down several times with a hanger to get it to fall. I took care of the problem.

This email is in reference to my stay at the dom

This email is in reference to my stay at the domain svale on 1/8/16 -1/9/16.  First, I booked threw a third party in which I was already charged for prior to arrival. I was charged an additional $150.00 for my stay.  Second, I couldn't get into my room for 20 min. I also had to walk back & forth to the front desk 3 times in order to get a key that actually worked. When I did get a key, still only one key worked.  Thirdly, within a couple of hours the domain buildings lights were completely out for some time. I then had to again walk threw the hallways in the dark to vacate until there was power.  Mind you I have LEG ISSUES & very hard to walk on a normal day. It took a lot out of my physically to have to walk back & forth to just get in my room.  In light of already being a regular customer, I want & need the overcharge of $150.00 posted back to my account immediately. I will be calling 7 on your side, writing a review on Yelp & contacting your corporate office general manager.  I informed the front desk of my unpleasantness with the type of services provided, overcharge but get YOU did not once offer to accommodate me for anything! I don't have $ to wait on, I am depending on that $ to MOVE on Tuesday & now my entire plans are based on the actions of the domain's negligence.  There is no excuse why I could not of been put in an upgraded suite with balcony, including breakfast for 2 complimentary, for all the inconvenience this one day stay at your hotel has caused my e

One of our go-to hotels in Sunnyvale

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, close to lawrence expwy, close to grocery stores, heated pool
Cons: unable to balance temps in interior rooms
My husband and I stay here whenever they offer affordable rates. One of the reasons we like the Domain is be/c it's centrally located, which enables you to jump onto Lawrence Expwy and access either 101 or 280 quickly. We also like it be/c it offers bfast, the rooms are spacious, the pool is heated and it's just a very comfortable home-away-from-home for us.

Feels like a second home when I visit

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, great staff
Cons: Noisy
I stay at either The Domain or The Wild Palms when I travel to Sunnyvale and of the two - I prefer The Domain. I like the uncluttered look of the hotel, I like that it has dining and bar capabilities, I like having a desk and/or credenza space to put my stuff on, I love the pool (it's always clean and warm) and it's really easy to get in and out. The only downside is that interior rooms are continually you have to futz w/ the air conditioner (even in the winter) and it's loud so it keeps you up at night. The only other thing I don't like about the rooms is that they don't have any humidifying capabilities and it gets awfully dry when you're trying to sleep, especially in the interior rooms. Guess I'll request a non-interior room the next time I'm down there.

This hotel was pretty cool...

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, modern look
We got in late (1am) and the host was kinda weird, but whatever, it's night staff. He did offer to get us a room other than the 1st floor which hubby was complaining about, but we were tired. The lobby was nice and modern, all cool upgrades to an older hotel. Next night we sat in the bar while the Frazier Crane look alike bartender served us and made really nice conversation. A wild party was going on in the banquet room and we were all getting a good laugh at the attendees stumbling down. Check out was great, no hidden charges. Slept good, no noise, cable was not working properly. Nice little hotel for the price. Check it out!
