Start Up, Stay Up at Avatar

Silicon Valley, the hotel, is not that different than the HBO comedy series. If you’re not from Silicon Valley, here’s a surprising fact: the HBO series Silicon Valley may well be fiction, but it lands very close to reality. It’s not altogether that unusual to see a hoodie-wearing, Google Glass-sporting developer. Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 4.30.13 PM

Avatar Hotel fully embraces its proximity to the Googleplex, Yahoo, Intel, and the Santa Clara Convention Center. The 1970s hotel is pixelated awesome-ness inside, from one piece of art to the next. Maybe it’s the robot cabinet in the lobby (can you spot Bender from Futurama)? Or the colorful Commons Lounge that looks ripe for a 24-hour hackathon? Or the Garage conference room where you can imagine the next idea being hatched? Or the on-site IHOP? Guests get a discount at the diner that draws 49ers fans who come to carbo-load on plate-sized buttermilk pancakes before heading to a game at the Levi’s Stadium. Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 4.31.17 PM
