This is a really ugly building, boxes side by side with a cornice on top in a failed attempt to hide the banality of the "architecture". This just adds to the lack of character of buildings in San Ramon.

The gravel and aggregate business next door is grumbling: "There goes the neighborhood!"

It's almost as ugly as the monster buildings around the danville hotel.

Does San Ramon really need another hotel? This will be located right next to the Hyatt Hotel on San Ramon Valley Blvd and the other Hotel by Costco. The plan already has issues with parking, just like every other business. I guess everybody can come spend the night in San Ramon and go to Danville and Walnut Creek to eat and find entertainment since you can't do that in San Ramon!

There just has to be a better use for that location. Also, if we had to pick a hotel for that location, Hampton wouldn't be on the list.
Please, let's be discerning about what we finally plan to do with that prime land. Thank you.

Prime land? Architecture complaints? The hotel would bring in additional tax dollars for the city, and you guys are worried about land that can't even be seen from either the highway or San Ramon Valley Blvd.

I for one am happy about any City decision that is making decisions today to increase their general fund responsibly. Hampton Inn is a quality brand, and before this it was am affordable housing site?! San Ramon should be thanking their lucky stars!!!!!!

I'm sure all those new homes that are currently being built along the hillside behind this planned hotel will be thrilled to be looking instead at the back of a 5 story hotel. And a two story parking garage along with it? Yes, I agree it will be good to have parking available, but why can't it all be underground? What's going to happen with all the traffic from 1) the new housing development right behind the hotel and 2) hotel traffic? Let's just crowd the streets more!
