The price of this room did not reflect the value of my stay. The rooms are much smaller than the Fairmont and the price was about the same. The hot water in the shower was not consistent and the maid service forgot to leave the breakfast room service request in my room (a big deal when you get back to your room at 9pm after a long day at work). I am not in a rush to come back here.

Just arrived from east coast for a conference. Its 1:30 am local. Was told there was a water break and the only rooms available were suites with pullout sofa. The bedrooms to these suites are being occuppied by other guest. After refusing and making calls to other hotels as well as waking up and having the conference host come downstairs ,surprise they locate two rooms. As frequent marriot guests i have never experienced such treatment. Very loyal to marriot but this will have a lasting impression for this very disappointed guest. I will never return here. The manager did not come out and an apology was never offered. I guess they thought we would be grateful to sleep on their sofa bed after a 7.5 hr flight from dc.

Stayed here on business eight nights in the last month. Nice clean rooms with great ammenities from bath and body works. Staff is always pleasant and more than helpful. Lots of night life and great places to eat near by. Fully equipped exercise area and pool. They even have a basket of apples in the gym area for a snack after your workout. Great breakfast on the concierge floorif it is included in your room rate. Would definitely stay here on a non business trip with my family.

I stay here often on business, and have found the experience at this hotel consitently great. Fun, active, inviting lobby, clean rooms with good ameneties, and a good location. Restaurants and in-room dining are both very good. The hotel is within walking distance of a variety of restaurants. Also very close to SJC airport. Only criticism is that sometimes valet parking gets backed up; I've taken to parking in the converion center garage which is essentially connected to the hotel. I stay in Marriott-branded hotels almost exclusively and this is among the best Marriots I have visited. A "4+".

The Marriott of downtown San Jose is centrally located, close to the airport and public transport. There is also a convenient paid parking garage just next to it. The room I got was spacious and well lit, the only downside being that there were not enough power outlets next to the desk.

The only thing that could be improved is that the lobby is rather noisy (especially as there was a convention at the time) and there are no quiet places to sit down there for a meeting.

Highly recommended overall.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. Price was pretty competitive given the quality of this property. I look primarily for 3 things at an upscale property; options for meals, health club/workout facilities and quality of room/sleep. There is a nice bar in the hotel and an good steakhouse, good upscale "vibe" at both. The workout center had a good selection of eliptical machines and treamills and an above average number of weight machines and free weights. The quality of the room furnishings was very good. I had a room adjacent to the elevator and was worried about the potential noise...not an issue, never heard it. I am a marriott gold member and had access to the concierge room at the top of the hotel....very nice. Good hours of operation, excellent service, good selection of beverages in the evening. Came in kind of late the first night and I was offered some spare ribs which were terrific!. Very nice outdoor patio overlooking the city. The breakfast in the morning was very good as well.

Stayed here for two nights in January. Hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. Four of us stayed in a double room. The first night our neighbors had a very loud dispute from 2-4 am. We called the front desk to complain and they were very courteous even though we were angry. The next day I spoke with the front desk and expressed my concern about another incident that night since the neighbors were not checking out any time soon. They were very understanding and compensated us by moving us to another floor with an adjoining room for a very steep discount. While their valet is timely, it is also overpriced. $26 a day to park. My understanding is the offsite parking is still $20 a day. The hotel was very comfortable, however I would probably not stay here again. My discount rate of $89 ended up being $129 per night when you factor in parking and taxes. I would stay a little further from downtown where parking is free. The staff is excellent, from valet to coffee shop and front desk.
