About Hotel Los Gatos

Set in the vibrant town that bears its name, Hotel Los Gatos is a Mediterranean-influenced luxury hotel featuring Old World charm and splendor. First opened in 2002, Hotel Los Gatos immediately became the finest hotel in Los Gatos, a distinction that remains today. Set in one of the southernmost sections of Silicon Valley, Hotel Los Gatos is located less than 60 miles from San Francisco and less than nine miles from San Jose. Yet its prime location offers a much quieter environment away from Bay Area city noise and traffic. This four-star hotel is within minutes from Bay Area tech companies like Netflix and even closer to the South Bay’s only Michelin 3-star restaurant. The hotel is also a short drive from the redwoods and sandy beaches in Santa Cruz. Late last year, Hotel Los Gatos was acquired by Chicago-based investment firm Oxford Capital Group, LLC.
