Our son stayed here for several weeks while relocating to the San Jose area. We wanted a relatively affordable hotel with apartment-like amenities and that's what he got. (I also stayed at the hotel at the beginning and end of his stay.) I agree that for true corporate travelers, the shuttle hours and lack of business center are definite drawbacks - I had to pay $50 for a taxi to the airport at 7 am.
But for long term housing it worked out OK. The rooms were the size of a studio or junior one bedroom apartment and were cleverly arranged with plenty of storage and a large desk area. The heating/cooling system was a little tricky (patio door had to be closed tight for it to operate) but did keep the room comfortable. The closet/dressing table area was nice. The room faced the back street and there were some ambulance noises but not bad with the door closed. I slept on the sofa bed for three nights and it was adequate. The kitchen was small but had all necessary dishes, pots and pans, and everything you'd need to cook for yourself. Except a larger fridge with more than an ice cube tray sized freezer would have been nice.
There were little glitches - like a leaking iron and a hair dryer with no warm air. Also wireless was temperamental depending on where you were in the complex. The breakfast buffet was pretty nice with a variety of offerings; just not much seating. It was available for much longer hours than most hotels and was continually kept stocked. There is also an afternoon/evening reception on week nights with snacks, wine, beer, and soft drinks and one hot food each day.
Parking is free and underground. There's a grocery store next door in the mall and several restaurants nearby along with other shopping. For long term stays, the room was cleaned twice a week and the linens and towels replaced. The staff was always helpful.
