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

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay here, which was unexpected for a stay in San Jose. Upon check-in the clerk was incredibly friendly, upgraded our room to a 1-king bed from queen room without any request, and had actually read the details of our spg profile to see our previous requests and preemptively take care of us even though...

The Westin is an update of the old St. Claire Hotel. Rooms are nicely done in new décor and very comfortable. But they are small, very small by today's standards Beds are comfortable. Good, convenient location. Fairly quiet in rooms away from the street. Friendly staff. Parking is expensive but there are plenty of less expensive options nearby.

This renovated old hotel is charming but not on top of the little things. They don't always have the door man present and the housekeeping staff does not seem to find no it necessary replace items that have been used up like body wash or bottles of water. All in all not a bad stay but could have been better.

It's great to see respectful updates of classy old hotels- the Westin kept the beautiful bones of the old hotel but gave it a luxurious-feeling renovation. Great location near cafes and restaurants. Gym was very sparse but there's a good one a block away. "Business center" needs work- two excruciatingly slow pcs in the lobby (this is Silicon Valley, folks)... More

Not only was this a beautiful property but the whole staff: the valet, front desk, sales, food and beverage, A/V & Internet departments were so helpful. Even when I screwed something up, they helped me make it look seamless. The food was excellent and the room worked perfectly. Sleeping rooms are beautiful.
