Hotel is great, nice room, great free breakfast, location is close to everything downtown. Only downside is the elevator takes forever in the mornings and right now there is construction nearby that has lots of noise from it. I can't speak for the price, as my company paid for it. Shame it had no pool or spa.

I stayed here two nights for a business trip during the week. The rooms and hotel were very clean. I am picky about bathrooms, but it was clean. I Dist like the shower curtain. The local is near the Cal Train, so you can easily get to San Francisco. Tip: don't take the shuttle, take the light rail. It stops... More

I just wrapped up another stay at a Hyatt Place. It was right across the street from the San Jose Convention Center, so the location was great. Almost everything was positive. I got upgraded to a corner suite which was very nice. The new Hyatt Place skillet breakfast was a major improvement over what I have had in the past.... More

The Hyatt Place is well located within walking distance of the HP Pavillion, SJ Convention Center, SJ Events Center, Performing Arts Center and the Tech Museum. Shops and restaurants are nearby too. Rooms size is average, well appointed (for this caliber of hotel) and very clean. The lobby is spacious and modern. The front desk was friendly enough but did... More

This last weekend I stayed at the Hyatt Place in San Jose. I wanted to note that all the staff are friendly and provide excellent service. I wanted to personnally thank Victor Esquivel for his outstanding customer service. He went out of his way to help me with a problem I was having with my room key. Thank you Victor.... More

This hotel has excellent customer service. You are immediately welcomed upon entering. It is located within minutes of highway 87 and the San Jose Airport. The rooms are great and the staff helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in San Jose. Don't get surprised by the cost of parking. It was $19 when I stayed, but still... More

I just stayed at Hyatt Place for a week in downtown San Jose. I have stayed at places all over the world. I must say the customer service here is second to none. I have stayed at so many high-end resorts & boutique hotels and they have nothing over the kind, helpful staff here at the Hyatt. I must say... More

I had a hard time rating this hotel. The hotel was renovated very nicely, rooms were lovely and clean, and the staff was beyond nice. The hotel is located right across the street from the Convention Center, which was nice for our purpose. If my story ended there, it would have been a 5-star no-brainer rating. The reason why I...
