Hipmunk's most popular hotels in West San Jose
About West San Jose
To see how San Jose earns its reputation for the most patents, highest disposable income, and highest cost of living in the nation, head to the western suburbs. Cupertino was a farming town amid cherry orchards until defense contractors moved in and Apple devices became the cash crop. Suburbs encircled office parks, and Cupertino morphed into a corporate Farmville with shiny new everything. Cupertino occasionally connects offline via the farmers market, Fine Arts League, and its own Diwali Festival. Patented millionaires live uphill in the quaint Victorian cottages and custom contemporary mansions of Los Gatos, which has over 100 high-end boutiques and the double-Michelin-starred Manresa. Today, it's hard to believe John Steinbeck wrote <em>The Grapes of Wrath</em> in Los Gatos. Campbell is a more affordable mid-century suburb. Just down Highway 17 is Santana Row, an upscale outdoor mall with Mediterranean pretensions, a popular multiplex, and tasty tandoori at Amber India.
