We went in expecting modern and hip and that is what we got. The website is totally cool. Check in and check out was great. Room service very good; breakfast served in a box. Order the broken egg sandwich. Go to Jo's for coffee; it is awesome. We went for a weekend to listen to great live music across the street at Continental Club and to explore all the food trucks along South Congress. The stores and galleries are totally great too, many open at night. Plan on parking the car and not getting back into it until you check out. Lots to do within walking distance for the weekend. Book early. The only rooms available were suites so we opted for the garden suite. It is about the same price as a standard room at the Four Seasons with a balcony. San Jose offers free wifi and parking. Bring slippers because the floor is concrete.
