“Very convenient but if there was an option....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Literally walking distance to our office so it is a no brainer. I would stay here again as you can take the shuttle from the airport easily and it is just the best option for me. However, it was a bit run down and can use a renovation. Wallpaper in my room was peeling off, wood trim was banged up, air conditioning did not go down low enough even when set on 65, and the shower head was horrible. Staff was friendly enough, but not over the top. At least there was a Starbucks in the lobby!

Stayed at the hotel when attending a Conference. Rooms are spacious, extremely clean and quiet. Do not assume that there will be a microwave / refrigerator in the room. Bottled water costs $2.50- Ice machines down the hallway. Decent gym. Breakfast was nothing special. Did not try the in-house restaurants. Complimentary airport shuttle. No cookie on arrival :)

The bay area is outrageous, but they should at least make it worth your money. USA Today was not delivered; it was a long walk to find the coffee, and my latte was double the cost at a normal Starbucks. There was no coffee in the room for mornings. While clean , it was spartan.

The hotel is excellent for large conferences of up to 650. It is close to SJC airport, has good parking, and is convenient to all freeways in San Jose. The meeting rooms are numerous, can be arranged to fit different size classes, and are very comfortable; the guest rooms are very clean and well-appointed; the F&B staff are very helpful, responsive, and courteous. This is the third year that I have attended the same conference in early March, and the hotel maintains its high standards.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent. I was on the 10th floor, which required a pass card to operate the...

Each year, nine district in Rotary International, meet at this hotel for a training conference. It is like a second home, the staff is welcoming, and always helpful. I look forward to staying there every year,

The staff really goes out of their way to make the stay a pleasant one. Kudos to management on the friendly atmosphere that is created. There are a couple of maintenance issues in the rooms that need to be addressed (lock on bathroom door in suite doesn't work) and the suites haven't been updated in quite a while, but overall a fantastic experience.

Stayed 4 nights on a business trip.
My room was 4th floor. The odd side room numbers are against highway 101, so do expect some traffic noise. The hotel is starting to look a bit tired and carpets could definitely do with a refresh.
Bed was comfortable, but a few items were lacking. Room telephone handset wasn't working and TV remote was a bit flaky. I couldn't be bothered to report either.
Breakfast was average and not the best value. Didi't try the restaurant or bar area, so couldn't comment on that. Reception was warm and friendly so no complaints there.

I would probably stay again as location is convenient

Room Tip: Avoid the odd numbers, they are on 101 side and you will get traffic noise
