We stayed here for a Saturday night hoping there was more to do in downtown area during the weekend. We were wrong. Downtown was dead, you can hear crickets (ok just kidding). But literally, the area was empty and we drove elsewhere to eat and do stuff. Luckily, we had a car so it didn't bother us as much.
The Hotel. It is close to downtown, walking distance. Probably better to go there during the week when stores are open and its more lively. The lobby was clean, hotels are up to par so I can't complain.
The Room. We were on the 2nd floor. I was awoken 3 times because you can seriously hear outside traffic or people talking. I thought we had our windows open but it was shut. As little traffic as there was during the weekend, it was still quite loud when trucks/cars would honk their horns or drunk people walking outside at night. Maybe if we had stayed on the higher floor, the traffic noise would not be so loud. I am guessing since we had a pet, we were only booked for the 2nd floor.
My complaint, hence the 3 star.
1. PARKING your car is $20/per. If you were planning to stay longer, it adds up.
2. TRASH BY THE ELEVATOR. Someone decided to throw away their pooped baby diaper in the trash can outside the elevator on our floor. That hallway reeked of diaper smell when we arrived at 3pm. When we left Sunday at 2p, it was still there. I guess they don't clean trash cans as often as they should.
Overall, it was an okay stay. Other than the above, it was still a place to stay for 1 night. However, I will likely not be returning to this hotel if ever I am in San Jose. I'd try to stay near Santana Row instead and pay a little more.
