I stayed at Westin for around 6 days. The location was good near San Jose downtown and walking distance from some good restaurants. The rooms were clean and well set when I got back to it . However the room size was small for the price that I paid. From service perspective too, the first impression was not that great... More

If you like old, dusty buildings, small rooms with no sound proofing, and a view on a parking lot, then the Westin San Jose is the perfect hotel for you. The restaurant is OK, but only if you like to wait unreasonable time just to get a waiter's attention. This mediocrity comes at a price: $385 a night for this... More

Beautiful and clean rooms, very well located on Market St. In San Jose, California. The people in reception and concierge are very friendly and helpful. Easy access to public transportation. The bed is so comfy you don't want to leave it. Pets are allowed.

Stayed with my son for one night. Very nice building that his on the National Historic register that has been renovated very nicely to a Westin. The rooms are a bit smaller than some Westins but what they lack in size they make up for in charm. Beautiful lobby and staff very friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Small rooms in a somewhat old hotel, horrendous rates, crappy restaurant (breakfast, for example, 2 eggs 26$, no buffet, opens at 08:00 AM during week-ends), avoid by all means the "city view" rooms, there is a train line running just below your bed! Windows are single paned, no shutters, just curtains which are not even opaque, so if you need... More

I've stayed at this Westin many times in the past year. The staff is always friendly, welcoming, and very efficient. I travel for business and like that I can fly in on a late flight to SJC and be at the hotel within 15 minutes or so. The proximity to public transit offers convenient travel to the area via the...

Good, central downtown location. Beautiful building, outside as well as inside. The rooms are stately and lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful. Italian restaurant in-house where I had a nice (and reasonably-priced) dinner. Workout facility has everything you'd need. Enjoyed my stay here, and would stay here again.

This is the former St Claire hotel in downtown San Jose. The hotel has undergone a full Westin face life with exceptional beds and atmosphere. The most memorable part of this stay was the staff. As a Platinum SPG member I am continually surprised by the level of attention provided by Westin staff, however this Westin's hotel staff went beyond... More

I stayed at Westin San Jose for the Rock n Roll half marathon in September. This hotel is downtown on a circular park. It is convenient to the convention center, many restaurants are nearby. For the race, the start line is a very short walk and the finish line is on the other side of this small park. The lobby... More

Spent a couple of days at the Westin San Jose for a business trip. Comfy, large enough rooms. Friendly staff. Conference rooms are spacious and well suited for briefings. Hotel itself is located a short walk away from downtown San Jose, giving you plenty of options to go for dinner or a movie. Not that you need to leave the... More
