About two weeks ago I spent a full twelve hours at this hotel during a conference of missionaries who came from throughout central america for a series of discourses, fine room and fine dining experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have a B&B near the airport, a small place but clean and quiet. Many of my friends stay for a a night or two at the Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose, conduct their business, the they come to my place for a week or two. Why don't they just stay at my B&B the whole time? Because, they tell me that their clients are impressed by the opulence and class of this hotel, and they give a better deal while negotiating as developers, etc. if they see them at this Marriott. They wine and dine them, close the deal, and then come to my place to enjoy the rest of the time here. Great idea!
