Very nice, clean and friendly. Excellent location in Downtown SJ to walk to a variety of resturants and connected to the SJ convention center. Great place to stay especially if your going for a convention center event.

I found out that there is nothing to do in downtown San Jose. at least I got an excellent hotel during my bussiness trip. Hilton San Jose is one of the best, excellent service... Hilton staff provides great care and services. also the resturant is very good, I recommend to try the filet mignon.

As some other reviewers have noted, this is a typical convention hotel but there are more reasons to stay here than just the easy access to the convention center. My room was comfortable with a king size bed, nice linens, a working desk and big bathroom. The differentiating factor though, is the staff. Very friendly, especially helpful in providing directions, restaurant recommendations and arranging a very early morning transfer to the airport. The breakfast was good, albeit a little pricey but the service was great. They also have a small, outdoor seating area with a firepit which was really nice at the end of the day. The busier, downtown area with restaurants and shops is a couple blocks away. A very good choice overall if you are traveling to San Jose.

The price is a little pricey, but you will get an awesome experience. The hotel is in an excellent location, within walking distance to restaurants and bars. The room and service is great. The front desk is very helpful.

This hotel, like many at convention centers tend to be older and in need of some freshening. Rooms are plain and lacking the warmth of some newer hotels. TV is too small. Good channel selection.

Not much nearby for food or entertainment. Hotel food is good.

Beds are comfortable.

Nice stay, as this was business trip I was very busy did not get a chance to use the facilities as much as I would have liked to. The staff was friendly and helpful. I like the fact that the room window could be opened a bit in order to allow fresh air to enter the room. Fresh air is key!

Very well located and accessible. The rooms are comfortable and like other hiltons, if u have stayed ,very comfortable. The restaurant options were limited and i did have breakfast, which was a tad boring.

I must say the staff was very friendly and helpful. The smell around lobby and lifts was little too much...some sort of fragrance which was bordering with bad.

Its all about location, location and location...tons if places with in walking distance of the hotels...good crowd and not too expensive on the wallet.
