That spot is all wrong for a hotel. The entire block has been retail and restaurants since the day it was developed, short of a small footprint office building near Chili's and facing El Camino. With every other available site in town being made into office buildings for high-tech outfits, we need to preserve existing retail space, else limit purchase choices for lack of competing stores.
The site should remain zoned as-is for retail, at least on the lower floor or two, with 3-4 floors of office space above. No hotels please.
Put a hotel over by Google in the old and now unused Amphitheater parking lot where it would prove more useful. That was the original plan for a hotel in M.V., and it's still the site of choice.

Hi, I live at Oaktree Commons. About a block from this site. Thank everyone involved for some common sense about this fence. Please put a hotel somewhere else. This is a retail space and should remain so.
