To be honest, there is not much to see in San Jose. Because I am rewards member we stayed at this hotel after arriving late one night before departing the next morning to Arenal. It is in a gentrified (that may sound snobby, but safety is nice) area of San Jose, and there is a guard at the gate 24/7. It is also close to shopping and restaurants, if that is what you are looking for when you travel here. All the restaurants are crappy American chains like Hooters, and Chilis etc.. so if you want authentic Costa Rican this isn't for you. Like I said, this is a place to stay that is safe, and has easy access to 27, which is the road you will most likely take to the beaches or up to a place like Arenal.
The rooms were nice and clean, and I believe they had free breakfast in the morning. I would stay here again, and probably will, while traveling through SJO. It is not extremely close to the airport, however. There is a courtyard that is literally across the highway from SJO where I have also stayed, but not as safe an area.
