The ninety-one-room Hotel Avante is a business hotel, to be sure, but it’s a decidedly playful, distinctively Silicon Valley update on the old form. To start, it’s of course properly wired — free high-speed wi-fi throughout, stylish meeting facilities with all the fittings, and for the design-minded audiophile, there’s even a music listening lounge with mid-century Modern furniture to complement a this-century modern audio system.

Because a good knowledge worker needs to keep the mind nimble, every room comes with an “executive toy box” containing a collection of games and puzzles. The interior color scheme seems to have been inspired by the Rubik's cube, which comes off surprisingly well. If you don’t like the looks of something, though, try rearranging the furniture; it’s all on wheels, perfect for tinkerers. Lest it all sound a bit too wacky, know that basics such as functional work desks and ergonomic chairs have not been overlooked.

In fact, thoughtful details abound, not least in the freebies. There’s free parking, free breakfast, a free weekday shuttle service to nearby offices, even free weekly chair massages. For while the seasoned business traveler knows that a stress-busting massage correlates directly with improved performance, Accounting isn’t always as sympathetic as Hotel Avante.
