I have stayed at this Marriot in San Jose about 3 days a week for the past month. This is by far the best Marriot property outside of downtown San Francisco. The hotel is modern, updated, and the staff is very friendly. By far, this property sets a good standard for how the Marriot brand should operate. Several things make this property great:

1. Excellent location; the hotel is connected to the San Jose Convention center. It's right in front of the Convention Center VTA Tram stop that takes you to San Jose Airport and also to the CalTrain station if you want to venture into San Francisco.

2. The restaurant is excellent.....very upscale - one of the best places I have eaten. Try the mushroom bisque...yummm.

3. Rooms are quite modern and the WiFi work very well throughout the hotel

4. Friendly staff who gave me Conceirge Lounge access after being a repeat guest for two weeks.

5. Hotel consistently executes the Marriot Rewards member personalized services stuff - extra pillows, towels, etc.

This hotel beats the Marriot Waterfront property at San Francisco Airport hands down!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor...

I probably wouldn't have noticed this Marriott from countless others, if not for the large glass pitcher of drinking water at the front of the lobby. Not only was the water flavored with lemon, it also contained cucumber slices ... Interesting combo and quite refreshing! Nice touch indeed.

Friendly front-end staff who lended toothpaste at midnight when the gift shop is closed.
Nice bar in the lobby, pretty good mixed drinks.

Busy, chaotic valet parking in the morning -- be prepared for long, long waits.

We stayed at the San Jose Marriott during our visit with our Daughter while she attends San Jose State University and was really pleased with this hotel. It was greatly situated at the heart of downtown San Jose with the great service that Marriott Hotels are known for, and the room was also outstanding. We stayed for four nights and five days and it was such a great experience. The hotel is located next to the park where every summer, they hold a free concert called Concert at the Park featuring several known artists and bands.

Room Tip: The hotel offers FREE Valet Parking (just tip the Valet person).

I had to stay one extra night in San Jose for business. When I cam the service was excelent. Ask for high floor because the view from the hotel is very nice I hope that they would clean the window soon.
Room was nice and clean. Service as good as always.
Easy acces to good restaurants easy walk.
Taxi was from of hotel
At 3:00AM. It was $18 to airport. Very nice service and quik.
ATM is giving you in the hotel lobby only maximum transaction per 200 dollars for $3.5fee. It is very steep fee I will say.

I was in San Jose for one-week for a conference and choose to stay at Mariott because it was next to the convention center. I'm happy with my stay. The lobby area was nicely furnished and decorated. The room was nice. There was no problems with staff, cleaning or anything else. Everything went well, although there was nothing particularly notable that would make me rank this hotel "Excellent" instead of "Very good". (I tend to reserve the "Excellent" ranking for more exceptional hotel experiences.) If I have to go to a conference in San Jose Convention Center, I would stay here again.

The San Jose Marriott is a good hotel, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay their again. The accommodations were comfortable and quiet, and the hotel is adjacent to the convention center, which was extremely convenient.

However, to me the hotel seemed a bit disorganized, for three reason: First, one night the hotel restaurant was closed, but there was no sign indicating this or pointing out that the dinner menu was available in the hotel bar; I had to ask at the front desk to find this out. Second, I asked for foam pillows, and I got one the first night but then it subsequently vanished. (This was not so bad, because the pillow was one of the more uncomfortable foam pillows I've used.) Third, at checkout, there was a mistaken extra charge on my bill; they did fix it quickly and graciously. All put together, none of this would discourage me from staying at the hotel again, but it does cut my rating down to 4/5.
