Santa Clara, Calif. — Silicon Valley’s quirky, high-tech Avatar Hotel is a perfect basecamp for families visiting the new Levi’s Stadium. If you’re attending TiECon 2015, the huge Indian business event taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center May 15 and 16, Avatar will be a good choice as well.

The 68,500-seat Levi’s Stadium opened July 17, 2014 as the home of the San Francisco 49ers, and it now hosts a wide range of concerts, sports events and other happenings.

The venue is a draw for local Indian Americans, too, as a diverse audience at Monster Jam showed April 11. The live, yearly motorsport event features souped-up trucks racing each other around a mountainous track, and outdoing each other’s over-the-top stunts — as a deafening roar of engines combines with the shouts of thousands of fans for a sensory overload kids don’t want to end.

Since the Avatar Hotel is just 1.4 miles away from the stadium, it was booked solid with fans who suited up in their comfiest shoes and packed up their clear plastic tote bags in order to abide by the stadium’s security regulations. The most prudent Monster Jam fans brought along earplugs as well. They wisely trekked to the stadium on foot, bypassing motorists caught in gridlock along Great American Parkway.

The fun, futuristically decorated Avatar Hotel is a great choice for Levi’s Stadium trip because it offers a heated pool, a hot tub with extra-strong jets, and a nicely equipped exercise room. Its guest rooms are equipped with a fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, iron, 37” flat screen TV, iPod docking station and blow dryer; while free wifi is available throughout the property, and your room key gives you a 10 percent discount at the 24-hour IHOP next door.

Business travelers will want to take advantage of its business facilities, executive conference room and Commons Lounge. Each guest room also features an ergonomic desk chair, spacious desk and all the plugs and ports a busy professional would need.

The Avatar Hotel is also one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the area, offering easy access to the Santa Clara Convention Center and Great America with rates starting at $119 per night. The Avatar Hotel is part of the stylish Joie de Vivre chain, and offers a number of packages including “Gas Savings bed & breakfast” with a free gas card; a Great America tickets package; and a Winchester Mystery House package.

The Avatar Hotel is located at4200 Great America Pkwy. in Santa Clara, Calif. Visit or call (408) for information.
