Located smack dab in the heart of this sweet charming town named Los Gatos, aka – The Cats – with everything you would want from a small hotel. The room is well appointed and the location just can’t be beat. You can walk everywhere in this Silicon Valley foothill town.
This is where all of the millionaires live, but it is a super understated town. You will see many Tesla’s driving around town. When I lived in the Bay Area I would often go to Santa Cruz, which is right over the hill from Los Gatos. Back then Los Gatos was a Country Western town, with some bars, live music and funky restaurants. Things have really changed; Los Gatos has become the premiere eating, drinking, shopping, destination town. I just loved being able to explore this town for 4 nights and staying at The Los Gatos Garden Inn helped me maneuver the whole area super easily. There is a bus and light rail that was very simple to catch, the bus is a block away from the hotel, so you really don’t need a car in this area. I was able to get from my location to the bus and light rail while I was in town.
Built in 1947 after WWII, once had a miniature golf course, this 28 room boutique inn is a historical landmark, with beautiful gardens and an unbeatable location in downtown Los Gatos. This landmark hotel, built in the Spanish Mission style, has beautiful Mosaic tiles fired in a local San Jose foundry. Visitors should note the colorful tiles in the entry, the stairways and the gazebo. We keep our guests coming back with our quaint clean rooms, our long standing staff that has strong roots in the community and some who have served in the hotel for over 20 years. We believe your stay at the Los Gatos will be your home away from home, with our friendly staff and amenities that fit long or short stays, business or vacation; we have accommodations to fit your needs.
Local legend has it that after marrying Marilyn Monroe in San Francisco, Joe DiMaggio eluded the paparazzi by laying low in Los Gatos on the way to their honeymoon. In an auto with “ Joe D” license plates, they “ raced out of San Francisco to avoid pursuing photographers.” The glamorous couple spent the night at the hotel now known as the Los Gatos Garden Inn on their way to Paso Robles.
Recognized by the Town of Los Gatos, Garden inn has been awarded for their consistent and loving gesture towards animals.Today and for almost 15 years now, the Garden Inn has been a daily favorite for many dogs and their owners who enjoy our dog treats and water bowl that helps make their daily walk more memorable. More local businesses have decided to join and serve the dog walking community along with us. Service pets are welcome here.
This is the place to stay when you’re in Los Gatos, spend your money on shopping, dining, etc. Really skip all the fancy places and stay at a place where you feel like you are home.
