Now known as the Dolce Hayes Mansion, this Spanish Colonial villa was built in 1905. It was originally commissioned to be the residence of Mary Folson Anson Chynoweth and was built to her specifications which included opulent marbled interiors and prized stained glass windows. However, the mansion fell into neglect in the 1950s. The mansion was bought over by the city of San Jose and elevated to its present stature as a California Historic Landmark.
Style and elegance
The mansion is shaped like a Maltese cross stretched over 41,000 sq. ft. and furbished with 214 rooms and chic meeting places. The resort with its lush lawns and impeccable gardens is often the venue for weddings. You can also pick up walking brochures from the reception to enjoy its pristine 26 acres.
While the hotel is not accessible to the public, you can get a glimpse of the stunning craftsmanship when you visit their fine dining restaurant, Silver Creek or hang out at Palm Plaza Lounge or Coyote Creek Lounge.
