had an enjoyable experience with aloft. love the vibrant colours that aloft uses, the bed was really comfortable, the surroundings are quiet. i love the bliss toiletries they use but do not like that they use dispensers for shampoo and shower gel, which means you can't take them with you if you like them. breakfast selection wasn't fantastic but the...

I suppose my expectations might have been too high for this property to begin with... Stayed one night before flight back to US at this hotel. Hotel was clean and check-in relatively simple. Front desk staff was overall helpful. The hotel has a definite "W" hotel vibe to it but on a miniature scale. I definitely liked the lobby and... More

We booked this last minute as a place to stay in San Jose as we had to be up early to get to the airport and we were very happy. There are closer places to the airport, but this was only about a $20 cab ride anyway. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Not that I would... More

Holla, We stayed one night in this hotel. Very nice. Pool table, snack bar, real bar, lounge area, gym, etc. The rooms are nice and clean and we payed roughly 95$/night through Hotels dot ca. You won't regret. Its 10-15mn from the airports. Pura vida!

Beautiful hotel, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and delicious breakfast buffet. The room itself was cozy but had a very interesting view of the McDonalds golden arches outside my hotel window.

Helpful, friendly staff. Location is odd - next to McD's with Applebees down the street. Convenient for the airport though. Staff suggested several surprisingly good food options nearby. Rooms are large and clean.

Thanks for your recent review and we are glad for your rating. Being in a trendy area of town with acess to so many restaurants and bars makes it comfortable for all guests to remain within the Lindora region during their business or leisure stays, and at the same time only 10km away from the international airport.

This hotel was phenomenal at check-in with efficient staff, and easy-going, laid-back front-desk personnel. My dog was welcomed as a true family member, and the room even had a dog bed and dog dishes. The shower head was a luxury as was the HOT water. The "black-out shades" are sheer perfection. Although the hotel is NOT in downtown San Jose,... More
