“Great brand new hotel a gem in San Jose”
Reviewed July 14, 2011

I stayed at this hotel in June to try it out as it is San Jose's newest hotel. From the moment I walked in I fell in love with everything, the rooms, the decor, the service. Very well located near the shopping mall and office buildings, this hotel was perfect in every way. The staff was very attentive and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this hotel.

My brother and I stayed 4 nights and chose the Esczu because it is next door to the hospital where my brother had appointments. He was not well the whole time there, and the hotel staff were all so kind and thoughtful, and made us feel as much at home as possible. We had most of our meals in the hotel, and they were all very well prepared and delicious. The hotel itself is quite new and the rooms were very nicely done and comfortable. We especially loved all the pillows!

We stayed for two nights at the Holiday Inn in Escazu with our young children in a two room Suite. Room was spotless, comfortable, and large. This is a brand new property and nothing like the traditional Holiday Inn you would find in the US. It is conveniently located next to PriceSmart, Multiplaza, and NovaCinema. Although I noticed most of the clientele were businessmen/women, the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly with our youngest, a noisy two year old. We ordered room service for dinner one night and were pleased with the food, and the open air 5th floor pool/lounge area is a nice touch. Will definitely return!
