We chose this as the final hotel on a family trip to California based on wanting to see some sights in San Jose area and on the great rates Crowne Plaza business hotels can have on weekends. The hotel is well situated with respect to freeways and in this area you definitely need a car. As an earlier review pointed out, the nearby (easy walk) Milpitas Plaza is entirely oriental, so may not be some people's choice for breakfast (or even other meals, alhtough judging by the lineups outside the main restaurant, it must be pretty good). Another choice is a mall that may not be walking distance for some, and the hotel breakfast is expensive.
We paid slightly more for a pair of rooms on Executive level, which were fine in what I regard as 'standard Crowne Plaza', which I feel is a high standard. The pool was shut for the winter and the hot tub was hot and looked great but in the end we did not use it. The first night was fine. Unfortunately, the second night there was a big wedding. For some reason, in a nearly empty hotel, many wedding guests were booked very close to us and made a lot of noise from midnight to 2 am. Hotel security did respond but there seemed to be a lot of noisy people coming and going so really it could not be solved.
This kind of problem can happen anywhere so I am not too upset about it, but maybe check if staying there on the weekend, and ask for an isolated room (of which there should be many).
