Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

Elegantly Californian in design and impressively international in reputation, Rosewood Sand Hill is nestled on 16 lush acres in the heart of Silicon Valley. It's a place where high-tech and venture capital jet setters love to relax … and we think it's just the spot for a fabulous Bay Area wedding.

Two nearby airports provide easy access, and there's a stunning array of premier indoor and outdoor event spaces, spas, restaurants, and guest accommodations to choose from. Plus the resort-like setting, amidst generous courtyards and gardens with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains, makes it a divine destination—and one you don't want to miss.

Celebrations in this breezy oasis of style unfold with an effortless refinement and expertise. How could it be otherwise? Most of the sophisticated event areas are ever so private, sequestered in the sumptuous sprawl of the main building's lower level. And Rosewood's hilltop location means inspiring vistas from expansive terraces and lawns.

Of course, our choice for a smashing reception or gala would be the 2,769-square-foot Rosewood Ballroom. Featuring hand-stenciled silk paneling, chandeliers, and a 16-foot ceiling, it opens to its own foyer and terrace where guests can mingle over cocktails while savoring the garden and mountain views. The adjacent Vista Lawn, which is bordered by gardens and mature trees and backed by a majestic mountain panorama, is custom-made for an al fresco ceremony.

Planning something a little more intimate? Consider the beautifully appointed Eucalyptus Room and its spacious foyer. Like the handsome Dogwood and Valley Oaks Boardrooms nearby, it can be used with the graceful Portico, a versatile outdoor "living room" with a rose garden surround and gorgeous mountain and garden views. In fact, the natural flow from interior to exterior environments is one of the hallmarks of this remarkable property. Even the more compact Courtyard Rooms near the hotel's entry fountain offer open breezeways and a tranquil, trellised terrace.

Short strolls around the grounds reveal other idyllic enclaves: The Cypress and Birch Gardens with their fountains and greenery, the treelined passages—even the pool—are all conducive to splendid parties, which the catering staff is well versed in delivering. Needless to say, the cuisine and service are flawless … and photo ops are everywhere.

The best part of the Rosewood experience: Their topnotch facilities and newly-renovated overnight accommodations (including suites and villas) allow you and your guests to enjoy not just the big day, but all of your pre- and post-wedding festivities, too. So don't stress. Arrive a day or two early and stay for several more. Take the time to luxuriate in all that this sanctuary has to offer.
