“Hidden Jewel -- Amazing and Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

This hotel has been recently remodeled, yet looks traditional and amazing. I recommend this hotel to anyone trying to get away from the corporate experiences of the Crowne Plaza or Hilton. It is close to San Jose, but far enough to get away from Air plane traffic and a the noise of downtown.

The Villa is clean and the staff friendly and professional. They have great chefs and the cocktails were terrific.

While I came with a friend, this place is perfect for a romantic get away. You will love the environment, cleanliness and best of all Marilyn, the sweet hotel dog that lives on the grounds.

Marilyn came and scratched on our door to get some more
Love from us. The fact that the hotel has Marilyn made me feel at home.

I will be back and recommend this hotel to anyone.
