Sunnyvale — Offering a playful lodging experience like being in a childhood treehouse, the hotel is poised to bring hundreds of rooms to Sunnyvale’s tech hub.
The new Treehouse Hotel will be the brand’s first U.S. opening and will be in Sunnyvale, said SH Hotels & Resorts, creator of the unique lodging brand.
According to SH Hotels & Resorts, the hotel will be partly renovated and partly new construction and will include 254 rooms.

Using a sustainable approach in materials and construction techniques, the Treehouse brand aims to provide people with an unforgettable lodging experience that goes beyond the run-of-the-mill hotel stay.
“It fits perfectly with what our guests are looking for and influences their environmental awareness,” says Reay.
Even the names of features found in hotels of sizeable scale, such as Sunnyvale’s Treehouse, are designed to evoke playful thoughts, according to a plan filed with Sunnyvale city officials.
It’s not a swimming pool, it’s the “Woodland Swim Hall”. It’s not a meeting or conference center, it’s an ‘event barn’. Other names include ‘Birch Grove’, ‘Oak Court’, ‘The Plaza Hub’, ‘Redwood Gateway’, ‘Flower Stroll Garden’, ‘Gathering Glade’, ‘Evening Garden Edge’ and ‘Morning Garden Edge’. And so on.
The idea behind Treehouse Hotel is, as SH Resorts says, to evoke carefree comfort, freedom, nostalgia and the joys of childhood.

A Sheraton Hotel is already operating on site. This development will add new rooms as well as dramatic renovations and remodeling of many existing rooms and buildings on the property.

Most rooms have private outdoor spaces with patios on the ground floor and balconies and terraces on the upper floors.
Rooms are designed to convey the concept of being in a treehouse and overlooking the real world beyond.
