We stay in the San Jose area every weekend for about six months of the year due to sports. We have tried hotels in Santa Clara, Palo Alto, Sunnyvalle, Redwood City, and more. This was our first visit to the Plaza Suites. The rooms are nice. Our room had to full beds and a living room area. Very tight in... More

I stayed for two weeks while working in downtown San Jose. Very friendly, professional staff! Great pool and outdoor area with hot tub! Really wonderful FREE breakfast...it ended at 9:30am which is a little early for me (I work evenings), but, when it's "FREE-ninety-nine" you get there or just miss out! The fitness center was actually nice and the business... More

The Plaza Suites is a very nice property, and is immaculately kept. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the pool area is nice. The complimentary breakfast is quite good, and includes more than the typical continental breakfasts you'll find at some hotels. Also, each guest gets 3 complimentary happy hour drinks each night, so that is a nice perk.... More

I stayed here for a week long business trip and was pleasantly greeted and then given a nice quiet first floor suite. The rooms are small but nice for a single traveller or couple. The TVs are nice sized and have a good mix of cable channels. The bed is firm and I had a mix of soft and firm... More

Was not my first choice, but good value rooms are hard to come by in Santa Clara these days. Reception staff were efficient, friendly. Main areas have been refurbished in the last year. Dining area a little cramped but seating in adjacent bar area possible. Rooms are pretty good for suites hotel. Parking fine. Quiet location. Has a pool.

Booked through Expedia didn't really know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Our stay was great and I would stay again. Our suite was clean and spacious. Much much nicer than other "suite-type hotels" I've stayed in. Lots of people at the hotel over the 4th of July weekend but it was quiet after 10:00pm. Nice pool area with numerous umbrella... More

Very good... at the time I was there it was going through some renovation, so the bar was not fully functional... but the Happy hour was :-) The service was prompt and friendly, and the suites larger than normal.

I was only there for one night but had a good experience and would go back. The new lobby/bar area redesign is great, all new, clean and modern look. The rooms are suites so I enjoyed having a bedroom and living room area where I could work. I had read other reviews about noise from the highway so I asked... More
