This is an older property that is in need of a serious update. Although some other travelers noted that they found the hotel to be dirty, that was not my experience - not dirty, just worn and out of date. My room was pleasant and the bed was actually very comfortable. I was there with a large conference and the... More

I stayed here because of the free shuttle. It didn't show up and I was late getting to the airport. The room was dirty and really dated. Had to walk through creepy hallways with some areas open to the outdoors, so it was a little scary even getting to the room. NOT worth the price they charged.

This is an older facility that does not get very good care. Our room was moldy and musty smelling. The area under the head board must of had 10 years of dust and dirt. The closet only had 5 hangers for 4 people. The restaurant with seating for 60-70 only had one wait staff and the service was very very... More

We ended up at this hotel as this was the hotel chosen for the San Francisco part of the tour we joined. The hotel is a very old hotel that certainly needs updates but the staff are nice. When we had a problem with one of the lights in one of the rooms, it was promptly dealt with. The walls... More

Easy to find. Room was comfy but a fridge would have been good. Huge shower which was lovely but shower was only the right height if you were 4 foot tall. Lots of noise from hall and neighbors, could hear 4 girls next door talking about boyfriends, using hair dryers and even zipping up cases. Good meal in bar but... More

What can be said about this hotel that is positive? Very little. I stayed at this hotel with two other people under the WrestleCon group rate as I was in town for WrestleMania 31. The main reason I stayed here was that is right across the street from the VTA light rail that could take us to the Convention Center,... More

Stayed 6 nights while I attended a conference at the Hotel. Rooms are a bit dated, but were clean and comfortable. Garden grounds are pleasant, and the conference facilities and staff are excellent and reasonably priced.

Clean and pleasant hotel. Very good public transport to and from venues. Good amenities but no room service available. Several fast food restaurants within walking distance but would need to travel into Downtown San Jose for a proper meal. No elevators which made getting luggage to the top floor difficult. We stayed during Wrestle Mania and unfortunately the hotel failed... More
