2 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Room was adequate size; beds were comfortable. But we were sent to our rooms on a long roundabout way that necessitated hauling our bags up and down a flight of stairs. When we later inquired about elevator access, staff denied there was any. We subsequently discovered on our own a much more direct route (and guest elevator!) that brought us... More

This hotel was very comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The room was large and clean with the only down being the bathroom is a bit aged. The included breakfast provides many delicious options and the hotel restaurant and bar had great options for lunch and dinner too. The hotel's gym is the Gold's brand gym that is attached... More

Not even a respectable dinner could make up for what was.....a depressing stay. Some staff make some effort but otherwise there is little to redeem this place. Some of the rooms are, or give the impression of being semi subterranean being gloomy, humid and with an unpleasant smell. If one has to stay here, the upper floors are an improvement.

We checked in and were very happy with the appearance of the hotel and our room was spacious and lovely. We were on the executive level which advertised a happy hour with snacks and drinks as well...

Spacious, beautiful rooms with great beds and bedding. Nice breakfast buffet and good dinner in the main dining room. The only drawback is that the pool is small and VERY cold. The hot tub is also cool and not very deep. The staff is very helpful and English is not a problem.

The only reason I didn't give five stars, is the location, but honestly I am not sure there is a good location in San Jose. It is in basically an industrial area, next to a pretty big highway, with trucks using their Jacobs brakes.
