Think better pricing can be found San Jose uber very cheap in the town so additional travel if required shouldn't be an issue. Very noisy with road traffic throughout the night and breakfast just a pass but only - the positive - staff friendly and helpful

Very helpful staff, especially Gerardo. All their recommendations and advise was spot on. The hotel common area and the rooms were modern and up to date and clean. The restaurant was average and over priced.

This would be a great hotel if there was some sound proofing. It's my second lengthy stay here. The first time I was on the side nearest the hospital, so I was constantly awakened by emergency vehicles. Now I am on the side next to the Price Mart and at 2:00 AM every morning I am awakened by the trucks...

There are good Holiday Inns and bad Holiday Inns, thankfully, the Holiday Inn San Jose-Escazu is a really good one and was perfect for my business trip. Rooms were quiet and clean (I was fortunate to have a suite with a great view and outdoor patio), public space was great and particularly enjoyed the local breakfasts served. Highly recommend.

The staff at the Holiday Inn in Escazu go out of their way to be friendly and helpful! The rooms are extremely comfortable, beautiful bedding and we had a wonderful dinner in the dining room. We felt like family and will certainly return. The underground parking is safe, convenient and free. Location for shopping is excellent.
