“Wedding Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

On weekend of June 14-17 we attended our cousin's wedding which chose this hotel for its celebration. Beautiful building and landscaping. The rooms are spacious and clean altough sometimes the air conditioning did not work well. We enjoyed the breakfast and lunch buffets at a reasonable cost considering that its location is a little far away from the commercial areas. The front desk was diligent in to find a taxi as we asked for. The service from the employees for the wedding was excellent, so we have an unforgettable weekend as of this.

El personal del restaurante y housekeeping hablan español lo que es una ventaja para los que no manejan muy bien el inglés. Ellos nos atendieron excelentemente por lo cual estamos muy agradecidos.

En fin pasamos un fin de semana maravilloso (wonderful weekend),

all good here - nice grounds, rooms nice and spacious. stayed 3 nights. food was good breakfast, lunch, and dinner. cant find much fault except that they closed the bar one night when it was nice and full and everyone was just having a nice time - i'm not sure what philosophy the bar works on - i'm more of a stay open when you're full kinda guy.. other than that - this place is really nice. great lawns to lie around on and read a book..

The building and grounds are beautiful and would make a lovely backdrop for a wedding. We enjoyed the lovely bar area and the pool. The rooms are a bit tired but clean. Our a/c didn't work well, making it warm for sleep. They have a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. The weekend rate of $109 was a steal.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days..Amazing rooms, super comfortable beds and great food! Staff super friendly and helpful. It was so relaxing that we actually decided to spend one day swimming, walking the grounds and hanging out instead of our original plan to go to San Fran. ( Been there plenty of times). We will be back again for sure! Only con here is that the main downtown area (Santana row, etc. ) was further away than we thought. Small inconvenience for such a great hotel....

Room Tip: Ask for a pool or grounds view so you don't get a view of the street.

In 2013 I presided over a 4-day event which used just about everything this place has to offer for conferences and WOW was I impressed!

Without a doubt the best aspect was that the hotel staff is the best I've ever worked with: from delivering a spare power cable to my room (I forgot mine and they had one in lost and found) to keeping multiple deliveries in luggage storage, from answering questions and facilitating registration to having their A/V crew customize the package based on daily feedback, it was great!

Very good free wifi (but that doesn't entirely make up for the fact that there is zero cell service inside the main building). Beautiful grounds (but be prepared that the hotel is a little isolated, so you can't just step outside for things you might want). Tasty food on site for bar snacks, in the restaurant, or catered. Wide variety of rooms for meetings. Ample free parking. My suite had a great layout and the balcony overlooking the pool was wonderful (but too hot during the day to enjoy). It was amazingly quiet. There were many casual areas including lovely outdoor areas to enjoy day or night.

The grounds and rooms are amazing! We epecially enjoy the parlor suites as it gives our 3 small children room to roam. The size of the grounds make it easy to access the amenities and even though San Jose is a hustle bustle city the hotel location is set off so that you feel at peace and relaxed with the tranquil surroundings. Lastly, the breakfast buffet is especially delicioous with the many selections of foods that accomodate almost all eating habits. Lots of colors in the selections.

Room Tip: Go for the parlor suites. It allows a separate room to relax in with a dividing doors that you can...

When we arrived to our room near the pool & jaccuzzi, the air conditioning was not functioning for our comfort level. We spoke with Pavel at the front desk, he gave us a few other room options for us to check out ourselves to see if we would be more comfrotable in them. He even offered to bring us a portable air conditioner. We found a room that was well ventilatied and the air conditioning was sufficient, it was an upgraded room which was not a problem for the hotel, since his (and their) main concern was our comfort. Pavel was pleasant, accomodating and made us feel important. He also called the room to make sure the AC was working and that eveything was to our liking . Overall, a comfortable and enjoyable night - breakfast buffett was awesome with lots of healthy choices, the resturant staff were great!! The pool and jaccuzzi was extremely relaxing. Definetely will recommend to family & friends and stay here again!

Room Tip: The suites upstairs are very relaxing and worth the upgrade with private patio.
