"The San Carlos market has a unique need for extended-stay product. In fact, a large number of visitors to the area stay between seven nights and three months," said Bob Olson, founder and CEO of R.D. Olson Development. "With Residence Inn by Marriott Silicon Valley, we look forward to providing a comfortable and convenient environment for these visitors, and others, to re-energize, work and play."

The hotel will have 1,500 square feet of meeting and pre-function space, accommodating the needs of guests and local businesses. The hotel will also have a four-story surface parking structure, with public parking on the ground floor. Public area amenities will include a fitness center, full-service business center, breakfast area and guest laundry. The hotel will also have a pool and spa, an outdoor patio complete with fire pits and a sports court.

Los Angeles-based DLR Group will perform architecture for the hotel, and Seattle-based Degen & Degen will perform interior design.
