I recently stayed three nights at the Arena Hotel. It is close to, but not in, downtown San Jose and very close to the HP Pavilion. While it definitely needs to be updated, it was clean and the room was large. I was in a two queen room on the third floor. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub/shower which was very large. The bed was very comfortable and toiletries were provided. The room also had a small refrigerator/freezer, coffeemaker, microwave, hairdryer, ironing board/iron, and a small desk area. The Wi-Fi was free. They had HBO on the TV, but no option to purchase movies. My room overlooked the interior courtyard so there was no street noise. Another bonus is that it has its own parking so you do not have to pay extra like you would downtown. Breakfast was provided as well. It wasn't fancy, but it covered what most people would be looking for. The staff was friendly and helpful. As a woman traveling alone, I would not have walked around the area at night. They lock the front doors from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. and you use your room key to get in. The area is a little on the fringe. But, I would go back because of the comfort, the price and having parking and breakfast included with the room. I have certainly paid a lot more in the area and got less for my money.
