Loved this Hotel!

I loved my stay at this hotel! It has so many beautiful pieces of art in the hallways, lobby and restaurant. And it has the most magnificent tree in the parking lot just outside the front door. I ate at the restaurant and really enjoyed my dinner. The location is outside of downtown San Jose, but that's a good thing because it is quiet and safe, and it's relatively close to the airport.

Modern and Beautiful

Staff was incredibly friendly, and the room and all common areas were beautiful and immaculately clean. Roof top bar and pool were amazing. Bed was incredibly comfortable. Free brunch was ok, but it was free.

Very Nice

Hotel was very clean and art work was awesome! Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable. The down side was that although there was a pool there was no area to lay in the sun. The pool is covered which is nice for rainy weather but not for sun seekers.

Beautiful clean hotel with amazing staff

This hotel was clean, had everything you could need, and the staff was amazing. The rooms were modern, large, and luxurious. The only issue was it was very hard to find the hotel at night alone. I also have no sense of direction. I ended up hiring a taxi and following the taxidriver in my rental car to the hotel.

Best value for a place near-ish to the airport

This is a beautiful, relatively new, European-style hotel in Santa Ana. It is 9km from the airport so it is easy to either take a cab or rental car for early morning flights. We have stayed here five or six times and each time has been terrific. There were a few minor issues this time, involving the time it took to check-in for one of the couples in our party, plus some language challenges at dinner and ordering. Other than that, it was ideal. Santa Ana has several very good restaurants that are walking distance (dark streets but safe) and the hotel restaurant is quite good, with a variety of prices from sandwiches to full meals. We have stayed in several other highly rated hotels in the area around the airport, and we would never go back. Studio Hotel is our favorite.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The traffic between Santa Ana and the airport is very slow at rush hour. You might consider leaving earlier (we left at 5am for a 7am flight) during morning rush hour, or possibly consider taking Hwy 27 towards San Jose, and then doubling back on Hwy 1.
