The common areas of the hotel were totally lovely! The bar, restaurant, lobby, computer area were beautiful. We booked 2 rooms booked for 2 separate nights as part of a package. The first night we had a standard room which was on the 4th floor. The room was clean and modern and pretty standard. Closet was HUGE! The second night was several nights later. The hotel gave us an upgraded room on the 2nd floor. It was absolutely lovely! Being our first time in San Jose the streets en route to the hotel were a little iffy looking but having a secure parking area with a 24 hour attendant was appreciated.
