    Comfortable hotel close to airport

    The bed was comfortable and breakfast buffet delicious. Hotel is 15 min away from San Jose airport. They do have free shuttle to airport but only at specific times. I had to get to airport 3 hours early to take free shuttle otherwise it was a $35 taxi ride.
