Booking It

There’s a new kid on the block at Menlo Gateway: Hotel Nia, whose name is Gaelic for “bright light,” is slated to open this spring. At night, the 11-story glass building overlooking the San Francisco Bay shines like a beacon of sorts. Situated just minutes from the Facebook campus, the property, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, boasts 250 rooms appointed with Mascioni bed linens and Fragonard Vrai bath products. Alfresco amenities include greenery designed for games, a fire pit and pool; the latter is adjacent to a 2,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center. While the hotel will no doubt appeal to business travelers, the on-site restaurant, Porta Blu, aims to entice locals as well with menus that spotlight Northern California- Mediterranean cuisine and craft cocktails. Room rates from $400, 200 Independence Drive, Menlo Park, 650.900.3434
