Finding short term housing is not hard in Silicon Valley. The valley sees a lot of professionals drop in for short periods to crash and burn on a particular project and then be off.
The Marriott Residence Inn is a wonderful place with comfortable accommodations, good food, wireless internet, plenty of parking etc. The one closest to Los Gatos is in Campbell (San Jose border) on Bascom Avenue. There are others in Milpitas, Los Altos, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Fremont, South San Jose, Morgan Hill and I’m sure elsewhere too. It is not the least expensive option, but in my opinion, it’s one of the easiest and most pleasant places to be. The suites are fabulous.
For longer but still short term stays, there are many corporate, furnished apartments where breakfast or evening appetizers and drinks may be served. The best known is probably Oakwood – check them out at www.oakwood.com.
