We have stayed in a lot of older hotels here in the US. This was a reasonable experience considering it is in the heart of downtown San Jose.
We found the staff helpful and friendly.
Their web page is a little out of date. They show an elegant bar that is no longer there and say the cafe is open 24 hours a day, which it isn't.
Breakfast buffet was very nice and again the staff was very friendly.
Really no serious complaints. We like to see what the cities are like so this was a good choice, within walking distance of most everything.
The city is not too inspiring and not super clean—but it's a city!
