The Toll House

The Toll House is a nice hotel right in downtown Los Gatos.  I think they have the best price/quality ratio with room rates around $125-$150/night.  Look online to get the best rate, for example on, but then call the hotel to book the room - they may match or beat the rate.


Hotel Los Gatos 

The Hotel Los Gatos is an upscale hotel, right across from the high school.  Not quite in downtown, but a couple of minutes closer to the temple.  It has a michelin starred restaurant on site.  A room will cost about $225-250 per night.


If those hotels are booked, and you need another recommendation, just let us know.





San Jose Airport (SJC) is the closest airport, about 15-20 minutes away from Los Gatos.  But it doesn't always have non-stop flights, depending on where you're coming from.

San Francisco Airport (SFO) is a large airport, and usually has non-stop flights to just about everywhere.  It's about 45-60 minutes away (unless Chuck is driving, in which case it's 90 minutes.  :)
