Arrived in San Jose at 5AM after a red-eye flight from Denver. When we walked into the hotel about 6AM, our Caravan tour guide informed us that there was a room ready for us! What wonderful new! Since our tour didn't officially start until later that evening, we spent the entire day relaxing in hammocks by the pool. Did get... More

Arrived early but had to wait until 4 pm, annoying after an all night flight. Room was average but noisy with wind noise all night. The location of this hotel is bad, there is no place to go to without using a cab.

Although its not service with a smile, we arrived in town very early and were able to get in the only room available, which happened to be a suite at no extra cost. It was very nice and spacious, couldn't have asked for more. I didn't like the extra for wifi which was expensive as well as the food in... More

Stayed here at start and end of a tour. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, no more than you would normally expect for a city hotel of this type. Restaurant menu was limited though the staff do push the buffet, which though of reasonable quality is a bit expensive. Breakfast, however, is of a good quality with a good choice.... More

I stayed here as part of a tour and based on the pre-trip description and hotel web-site, I had fairly high expectations. Nothing in the hotel met my expectations. The check-in and front desk service was mediocre. Our first room had a view of the garage roof, so we asked to change. By the way, quite a few rooms have... More

We were placed at the smoking floor without prior notice, the place is very noisy, the floor of the rooms is dirty, you have to pay an extra for WiFi, the restaurants are way too expensive for what they serve. We felt like trying the swimming pool but, suddenly, a dozen of business men came out of a conference room... More

Beautiful grounds for strolling; it is actually a tropical garden, large pool, tennis courts, exercise room. Nice room. Staff helpful. Good buffet for meals. Ten dollar taxi ride to the city center. Excellent value.

Even though the room we stayed in could have used some updating, the view was fantastic. Looking out at the mountains when the sun was rising was spectacular (since we don't have views like that at home). The pool area was nice, but could have used a little prompter service when it came to picking up empty glasses or towels... More

Rooms are very good.. For the price we probably expected something more.. Great was the free shuttle service to airport. Location is OK if you don't intend to move a lot from the hotel, otherwise you will totally be taxi dependant..

Garden variety sterile hotel with mediocre service. Everything is just as good as it needs to be, nothing more. Towels are seldom changed and you are not permitted to move around the hotel freely as the elevators are controlled by hotel keys. That is tricky if you have a client on another floor. It would be more than fine for... More
