Stayed at the San Jose Marriott for four nights and had a very pleasant experience. Not even the grout in the shower bothered me. Seriously, the rooms are clean, cheerful, well appointed, pleasantly furnished. I had a view of the pool and construction on the convention center. I dislike hotels intensely but cannot fault this hotel for anything other than the fact that the air is artificial, the food is limited, expensive and disgustingly non-healthy, and the sound effects of constant bad music is enough to drive one crazy. But if you need a hotel to attend a conference on the Convention Center then this is your best bet.
