The closest airport to the hosting hotel is San Jose International (SJC) – 3.7 miles away.  The hotel has travel arrangements to and from the San Jose Airport. Please see below. Family members may also choose to fly into San Francisco Airport (SFO) – 35 miles away or Oakland International Airport (OAK) - 30 miles away.  A rental car or other means of transportation will be required for Oakland and San Francisco Airports.


For those of you who are flying into San Jose International Airport (SJC) and are not making arrangements to pick up a rental car from the airport, the hotel provides transportation from the airport to the hotel via Lyft Concierge. Please note that this arrangement does not apply for any other local airport.
Well, how does Lyft Concierge work?
  • Upon your arrival to San Jose International Airport, once you have collected the luggage you may have checked for your flight, please call Sonesta Silicon Valley at (408) 943-9080.
  • Ask for the Front Desk and tell them that you are with the Walls Family Reunion, requesting an airport pick up. Provide the Hotel’s representative with your name and cell phone number along with how many people are traveling in your party.
  • The Front Desk Team will then immediately schedule a Lyft pick-up which will likely occur within minutes.
  • Once that Lyft pick up is booked, you (the traveler to be picked up), will immediately receive a text from Lyft with the estimated time of the pick-up, the make and license plate of the car along with the driver’s name. The driver’s cell number will also be included in that text should you need to reach him/her. 
Please keep in mind that the hotel DOES NOT receive the text with the pick-up information as described above.
  • In that text, there will be a link allowing you to track exactly where the driver is and when he/she will pick you up. 
Please call the hotel in advance of your travels should you have any questions about the Lyft Concierge procedure as described.
