Design hotel

We stayed here for just one night before we started our Costa Rica trip. The hotel is difficult to find at night, even with directions printed out. Get used to no street signs in Costa Rica. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and nice and helped us immediately figuring out our way to the next destination and printing out maps. That service truly couldn't have been any better. Thanks again. The hotel itself is the typical aloft style and design.

An average hotel with nothing special about it

This is my 3rd time to Costa Rica and I always travel the entire country when I stay. But this time I thought I would stay in the city and enjoy what it has to offer. Well..I'll start with the location. It's about 20 minutes ($24) from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood and everything seems to be brand new, but I felt like I never left the states. There's a McDonalds across the street, Quiznos and Wendy's is a block away and they even have an Applebee's. This is nice and all but I didn't all this way for a Big Mac. So we tried the other restaurants and found them to be over priced ($35-45 a plate) and the food was average at best. Nothing special. There's just 1 bar (stereo love) close by and that was the only bright spot of this boring neighborhood. Because of the location of the hotel we had to take taxis everywhere. These $24 car rides really pile up to a large amount just after a few days. It would have been a better idea to just pay a little more for a hotel closer to the city or aound the mall. I also wouldn't recommend renting a car. I like to think I'm a good driver with excellent sense of direction, but these roads are poorly built and the other drivers on the road care little for any laws. With the exception of Stereo Love and a great little spot called Taco Bar, the neighborhood is boring and the food sucks. So you would think there's lot to do at the hotel? Nope. The hotel has 1 pool table and that was always taken. Maybe it was being used all the time because the other people were just as bored as us. :-/. No swimming pool, and thats too bad because the weather was beautiful. They have a nice little bar but can't really think of anything else that stood out. The hotel is new and clean. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom area is nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Would I ever stay there again? No. Summary- it's a nice hotel but no W hotel. And the location sucks with little to do.

You should definitely go to a little spot called Taco Bar. The food is cheap and delicious and it's only a few minutes by taxi.

"Airport Shuttle" is a LIE

This hotel offers free "Airport Shuttle" in this website but once you get there they tell you that you have to pay your transportation to the airport. Is a total shame that a hotel from a "serious" hotel chain makes phony offers to trick its clients.

Cool Hotel but Not on Windy Night

Love the modern design of the hotel, rooms are well appointed, staff was super helpful. Unfortunately for us, we had a room where a large hotel banner hung outside and it was a windy night. The banner's metal holders banged against brick walls all night, which made for a disappointing sleep. Staff was very helpful with setting up massage at spa nearby, giving us dinner recommendations and with departure to airport info. I did not ask for an adjustment for noisy night but would have thought manager might have suggested it. All-in-all, it is good value hotel and nice location to airport.

a better hotel in san jose

i have visited san jose many times, and this is one of the better hotels I have stayed at. for an international chain hotel in san jose, the price was fair. the hotel is new and the rooms were roomy & comfortable. the hotel is well-located for business travelers but not near many tourist/leisure activities.
