Kind helpful staff. They are a bit apart from the main business buildings on the area, but they compensate with complementary transportation. My only suggestion is more lighting on the rooms.they are waling distance to Plaza Istcazu this gives you access to great restaurants in walking distance for dinner. Its also near to a great hospital in case you travel with medical attention needs.

BED: firm, great linens, 4 pillows, clean and comfy. Bath: new, clean, all working well and the soap was soft feeling, not leaving skin dry.
Wifi worked perfectly; I think it was free for me, P Club member.
H I: this is a new building so I expected the best and it delivered. New decor and bed styles in the room. decent sized lobby and restaurant. Staff was prof and friendly. Better location on this side of road as I can walk to Multiplaza 10-15 min down road. Pricesmart and Office Depot were outside of my window so not a great view every day. My corner room also gave me another window to highway side. Oh well, great lighting though. My overall rating is that it delivered what one expects of a new Hol Inn, it is not the Intercontinental. As it is 12-18 months old, I enjoyed it.

Location: there is a great plaza/ office complex adjoining the hotel so about 7 restaurants, tea/ coffee shops are just steps away. A spa also and deli. Recommend the burgers from Hamburguesia; a neat gourmet, select-it-yourself menu.
All prices are rising in CR but this is competitive with Courtyard and other similar hotels.
For business, this worked perfectly and easy enough to get in /out from highway for my hosts.

First this is a very nice new hotel so all of the facilities are in excellent condition. The staff is friendly, very accommodating and the front desk personal speak English. This hotel is superior to most of the Holiday Inns back in the states. I selected this hotel because it is only about 3-4 miles from the Pavas airport and I had to catch an early morning flight on Nature Air to Bocas del Toro Panama. The hotel is situated in a shopping restaurant complex so there are several choices to dine or shop meaning you are not stuck being at the hotel without car transportation.

We stayed two nights at this Holiday Inn in San Jose, Costa Rica, and it is fabulous! It is everything you'd want in a hotel: the rooms are spacious and comfortbale, the beds very nice, the bathrooms outstanding. It feels like the hotel is brand new; it is spotlessly maintained, the staff were without exception, excellent. All staff at the desk spoke English. There is a made to order breakfast, and the food was sensational. Breakfast is included. The hotel is located in an upscale commerical area in the suburbs of San Jose, so you need a car, or plan to take a taxi. Taxi service is always available at the door, and the fare to the airport (about 25 minutes away) was $16. The hotel is part of a large, modern commercial complex, and right outside the door is a large plaza, with a great variety of restaurants, from more casual to quite fancy. But no meals were over about $12 anywhere. There are two or three large, modern shopping plazas within a mile, so there are plenty of shopping and restaurant options. It is also no more than a few hundred yards walk from the CIMA hospital (that caters to tourists and foreigners), and the hotel offers a discount on rooms, if you are visiting the hospital, as we were. I give this 5 stars! Highly recommended!

Although it is located a bit outside San Jose, it is a quick taxi trip into town, as long as traffic is not too bad. It is however located in a business district, and near a large mall and numerous dining options.
