I love the Cowper. It’s my go to place to stay in silicon valley. Like an old friend.

But room 27 sucks. Do not stay in room 27. Here’s why.

The heater in the bathroom is on the blink. At 2:36am it makes enough noise to keep you up the rest of the night. Ouch. There is no “off” button.

The shower has a shower curtain and is situated over a bath tub. Nice showerhead, but all together as a package not for me.

The rest of the suite is suitable Cowper.




And the grounds are gorgeous as always.

This stay only gets three showerheads. Next time I will ask for my usual rooms.
