Great staff, very helpful and polite. There are little things room-related that might make it perfect, like the detail of the door not opening on time, waiting for a clerk to fix it, wait for it to be fixed... but the bed was super comfortable and the food was amazing... I would recommend it for a city evening!

If you want to be treated rudely by staff, be over charged for everything, and have mediocre accommodations, then this is the hotel for you. Bed was made on top of wet sheets so I returned after a day of work to a damp bed. The front desk staff are rude and dismissive, hanging up instead of picking up when... More

This is an older hotel that has many nice features, and it's mostly clean, but the pool area in the gym was kind of slimy and in need of updates (fix the broken tiles, grout, etc). The staff were all nice and friendly.

We stayed here on two separate occasions and found the staff so very helpful. We were upgraded to a lovely large suite,very clean with excellent lights in the room for reading. It also had the most comfortable bed we had ever slept on which is important for us as we have both had back problems. Nothing was too much trouble... More

I spent 4 nights at the Radisson San Jose and it proved to be a fantastic hotel. Huge room with every convenience you could wish for. Polite, efficient staff who aim to please.
