    Everything disappointing but the staff

    This hotel had no amenities. It is located under two miles from downtown, but the walk is littered with bad areas, and I wouldn't recommend it at night at all. When I checked in to this hotel I was initially placed very near the elevator. As a very light sleeper, I asked to be moved, and was moved to an even nosier location. Traffic sounds ensued all night and the second night an event downstairs blasted into my room. The room was not stocked with extra towels and didn't have bathmats or wash cloths. No refrigerators, vending, or ice machines. The one positive piece is that the staff was very friendly and helpful and most spoke excellent English. However, did not make up for the poor experience I had here.

    Had a major issue, feel like Management could of "fixed" the issue

    Was locked out of our room one night and no one could get the door to open. We were placed in another room for the night (without any of our bags, clothes toothbrushes etc) It wasn't until we reached out to the hotel that they decided to refund our money. I feel like that should have been a first resort.

    I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff are the greatest, wonderful people, felt like home. One complaint, even on 8th floor traffic noise could be a bit much at times.

    Excellent experience

    We stayed nine days in this hotel. It has an excellent location. We enjoyed free international calls. One of the most remarkable moments was when the chef gave us his personalize attention in a couple of occasions. It was a pleasure to stay there.

    Worst Hotel Ever

    Nice clean room. After dinner we tried coming back to the room and it was locked. The entire hotel and security could not figure out how to open our room. They made us spend the night in an entirely different room without any of our items. We could not brush our teeth or even change our clothes as they were locked in another room. The manager would not even get us a tooth brush. The management was absolutely horrible. Worst experience I have ever had at a hotel...

    Tryp was a great hotel. Unfortunately we got there at 630 am, so are rooms were not ready. But the staff was very friendly and hospitable. We would stay again.

    Clean urban hotel

    The location is good if you want a clean place near San Jose stadium, museums and bus ride or walking distance to the San Jose old mercado. There are a couple of American chain restaurants around the corner and a few bars. This has the feel of a modern professional hotel, clean, safe with a good San Jose location about 10 minutes taxi to the airport. The staff is professional, similar to a Hampton Inn in the states but only about 80 rooms and the bar and dining/restaurant are good if you need a break from the San Jose street.

    Don't stay during construction

    The hotel was really nice, had great views, and the breakfast buffet was a huge plus but there was construction one floor below our room that started at 6:45 AM! Staying in a hotel in the city is nice to enjoy night life but if you're out until 2AM you don't want to be woken up by drills and hammers hours before a normal work day would start. We called reception twice to complain, then at 7:30AM went to the front desk in person. Management had no idea what was going on, the maid was the one that filled them in on the construction. It took 45 minutes after our first complaint before anything was done about the noise. Because we got a discount I would recommend the hotel, but I would not have paid full price to stay there.
