Overnight stay in San Jose between flights

Experts,

We need to pick a place to stay between our flight to SJO from Chicago and our jaunt to Osa. What hotel do you recommend that's a little bit of luxury before we rough it in Osa, has dining options (we don't really intend to explore San Jose), and is convenient to SJO for the quick turnaround?

Thanks.

Since you want to be near SJO take a look at Xandari. Lovely spot.

Xandari is beautiful - but for something a little less pricey, Hotel Pura Vida or La Rosa de America would work well. Hotel Los Volcanes doesn't have on-site restaurant but is within easy walking distance of quite a few restaurants in Alajuela.

We stayed at the Courtyard right by the airport and it was phenomenal. Not only was it was it one of the cheapest places we found meeting our requirements (we paid around $80/night when all was said and done), but it was incredibly nice. It is a traditional hotel (so no unique experience), but my goodness was it clean and comfortable. It was nicer than any Marriott (or the like) I have stayed at in America. It felt quite luxurious for an "airport hotel."

We stayed at the Marriott San Jose before and after our trip to the Dominical area last month. It is a beautiful property. Several years ago we stayed here paying Marriott Rewards member prices, this year we stayed using a discount for family members of Marriott employees so I don't know what their rate is. Cherie

If you mean in San Jose, then Grano de Oro is probably the best hotel in the city. We were very impressed.
