I was glad to have chosen this hotel upon arriving in San Jose. I only spent one night as I had a flight on Sansa the next AM. All of the staff, both in reception and the bar are extremely helpful, speak english, and are generally lovely. I was grateful for that being a lone traveler. The hotel itself is very close to the airport. I intended to take the shuttle but it is mass of people outside and didn't see the shuttle so I took a 5 min taxi ride to the hotel for $4. Totally worth it to avoid waiting in a sea of people for the shuttle. Going back to the airport, the shuttle runs every 20 mins and waits at the hotel lobby front. Very convenient. The room was very clean and modern. The shower was a very nice waterfall style one. The pillows were excellent (important!) and generally there was nothing to gripe about EXCEPT the food. Granted, I only had fruit and yogurt for breakfast and chicken soup the night prior. The soup was 99% broth and a few smidges of chicken and veges laying in the bottom. Any can was better than this. Also in my fruit a couple grapes had mold on them which caused me to gracefully spit out the bite I was chewing at the time I saw the mold on the grape. YUCK! I would stay here again but I don't think I would pay $10 for a smidge of yogurt and moldy grapes again! Pack extra snacks!
