    Fine would stay again

    Nice, friendly staff, clean and comfortable restaurant. They do not provide wash clothes and hand towels, you must call and request. We would stay again, if we needed to stay in San Jose. This is not a luxury hotel for a vacation but a business person or someone needing to stay in San Jose would stay at. The staff's English is very good which is important for those who don't speak Spanish.

    Very enjoyable stay

    The hotel is very clean and comfortable. the room was a little on the small side, but we were only there to sleep. We stayed on the 9th floor and had a great view of the city. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance, as well as a restaurant in the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

    DISCLOSURE! Disco/Club under hotel HORRIBLE

    I was so excited to stay here because of the restraunt! and the food was good. We needed a rest before heading to airport as our flight left at 6am. Planned on a sleep from 9pm to 3 am, 10pm 1hr into sleep on the 6th floor the club under the hotel was out of control!!!!! dont stay here. i could see people parting on our stair wells , smoking and drinking, cars racing up and down street. NO REST. we left at 330 am and still the BOOM BOOM BOOM from the club. I complained to check out manager and she said ("it's not part of our hotel", "not our Problem") i then replied" the club is attached to your hotel it is your problem") I am so sorry to my other friends i talked into staying here.

    Very outdated and over rated hotel in DANGER part of town

    The hotel is located in a very unsafe area. And there are nothing around, Need taxi for everything. When I check in at about 11 pm. I had to ask one of the hotel guard to walk with me to a outside food place 2 blocks away to get a carry out and I am a man. The hotel has no service after 10 pm. The room was very dated, carpet old and stained, bad odor in the room. and the Bathroom....Yeakkkk. As of October, the hotel is going some kind of major repair. Not a 4 star hotel as advertised. I checked out as soon as I could and check in the Holiday Inn in downtown, which is 100% better hotel in all aspect for about the same price.

    4 day weekend

    Large clean room, wonderful breakfast, busy street with truck noise, but acceptable. a 8min taxi ride $4 to center of town. Shower no bath. No pool. Great reception staff who helped make reservations for interesting road trips away from the city to ECO sites.
