This property is a great location for Business or Pleasure. I have been here a number of times but now that the restaurants, food court , and Starbucks is open you can have the best of both worlds.

I stayed for 3 nighs in early August. The hotel was super. The employees were helpful, the suites were outstanding, the breakfast was tasty & the location was excellent. The restaurants & shopping in the area of the hotel were top notch, especially the Peruvian restaurnat behind the hotel. I can't wait to return.

Residence Inn is well located at Escazu area. Surrounded by some restaurants, has also a supermarket close to it. The breakfast is good, with some local specialties like "gallo pinto". Rooms clean and spacious.

I had two rooms (using points so I can’t comment on cost) as a transition from Jaco to the San Jose airport. The Jose Residence Inn is a perfect transition hotel. Sure, it would be great for an extended stay but it served our purposes for why we were there. The front desk check-in and subsequent check-out went perfect. Pleasant... More

This RI is located in new, posh area of the Costa Rican capital. It is the perfect place to come with your family. Not much in terms of food and beverages, but there are many excellent eateries along the street. Rooms are large and comfortable and they have a kitchennette.
