My daughter and I just spent five days in downtown San Jose at the Presidente and it was an excellent hotel in every way. Clean, updated rooms; friendly helpful staff; excellent free daily breakfast; and a terrific central location on the pedestrian mall and walking distance to many restaurants, shops and sights. We'd heard that San Jose isn't always safe for women walking alone but between the lively crowds during the day and the very close proximity of several restaurants for dinner (including one right inside the hotel) we never felt unsafe. Taxis are always available at the nearest corner, and the English language bookstore is right around the corner (don't miss their attached Smoothies bar). Wireless internet at the hotel worked great. Because of what we'd read on Trip Advisor we asked for a quiet room without street noise, and were given a large double (#404). The only window looked into an enclosed shaft so we had to sacrifice a view and natural light but it was worth it since we needed a quiet work space. On our last day I needed a later check-out time and it was no problem to stay in the room until 2 at no extra charge. I highly recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay here again if I ever need to return to San Jose.
