Not usually the sort of property I go for, but there's not all that much choice in San Jose and this seemed to be the best rated.
Bit of a queue at check-in and check-out and they didn't seem to have properly understood the instructions sent to them by my work's booking agent.
I was on the 8th floor in the main building with a view out over the pool. Room was very spacious, but quite old fashioned in decor. Still in good condition and clean though. Air conditioning was a bit noisy which was annoying though. Shower wasn't great and the towels seemed a bit old too.
Went in the pool one evening for a quick swim but the water was a bit warm for any serious exercise, water wasn't all that clear either. Would be a nice place to relax though.
There was a pretty bad band playing in the lobby on the evening we arrived but we found a couple of nice bars around the corner that were better.
