I stayed 2 nights to attend a seminar at the hotel.
Self-parking is unmarked and difficult to find. Enter the Convention Center parking garage on the north side of the building. Hotel parking is well-marked inside the garage, but not outside! It's a fairly long walk from parking to the hotel lobby (through the Convention Center), so drop off luggage and passengers at the front of the hotel before self-parking.
The room was standard Marriott....clean and in good repair but nothing spectacular. My room was directly next to the elevator lobby and right under the airport approach. But the soundproofing was excellent and I barely heard the planes or elevators. There were no "blackout" window blinds, so bring eyeshades if light bothers your sleep.
Lunch, beverages, and a reception were catered by the hotel. The food was fresh and a good selection was provided. I didn't eat at the hotel restaurant.
I heard a lot of complaints about the cost and quality of wireless access. You would think a business hotel in Silicon Valley would provide it for free. I needed to go online briefly, so walked into the Convention Center lobby and used their free WiFi signal.
The fitness facility had a better than average selection of machines, treadmills, and free weights. The rooftop pool is adjacent but I didn't use it. Towels are provided and housekeeping was cleaning all the equipment while I was there.
The San Jose Marriott is a good quality business hotel but a bit pricey. I recommend it if you have business in the area but there are better choices for pleasure travelers.
