I've recently had to stay in the San Jose area. Costs dictate that I stay at a Marriott or this DoubleTree Hotel. I can't be happier that I've picked this hotel and staying in the Hilton family.
The front desk staff is excellent and friendly and the breakfast staff is just great. The first week I stayed I was in a "two double" room and then in a king room. The two double room had a patio overlooking the pool which was a nice touch. The King room was in a tower and was facing to the western sun which made the room quite warm in the afternoon because housekeeping kept opening it up when they were in so when I got to the room it was an oven.
The rooms themselves are very nice though the bathroom door opens inward and you feel like you have to jockey for position being the only person in the room. Plenty of counter space in the bathroom helps for your bathroom items and there is good water pressure (even for CA). The beds are comfortable and the only real problem I had with my first stay was the door to the hall was nearly impossible to open when entering the room. I would have to slide my card 10-15 times then it would finally work. My second room didn't have that problem so it could have been a card issue or a reader issue. The room in the tower was on the HHonors floor so it had a robe which is a nice touch.
The hotel is under a little construction and as such the hotel bar/restaurant is split up. The restaurant is temporarily in the lobby "roped off" and that is where breakfast is served. The bar is up on the 7th floor in a hospitality type suite. I've not used the bar but the breakfast is terrific. Good tasting food, warm with what needs to be warm and cold for what needs to be cold.
The workout facility is nice if a little warm but has quite a bit of equipment like the normal DoubleTree that I've seen before.
I actually drive about 20-30 minutes to / from work rather than a Marriott next to work to stay in the Hilton family and stay at this nice hotel.
