Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, the Arena Hotel offers walkable access to the HP Pavilion, downtown offices and the San Jose Caltrain station. Guests appreciate the variety of nearby dining and transportation options whether they are there for a San Jose Sharks game or a business trip. Complimentary breakfast (daily) help guests fuel up for a long day of work or night of recreation, and Jacuzzi tubs in each room ease sore muscles afterward.

Rooms

The recently renovated rooms have traditional decor, including dark-wood furnishings and printed bedspreads in dark, muted colors. Guestrooms and suites are highlighted by amenities such as 27-inch color TVs, voicemail-enabled telephones, microwaves, refrigerators, coffeemakers and even kitchenettes in some rooms. Two-person Jacuzzi bathtubs and free wireless Internet access are nice bonuses.

Property features

Corporate travelers appreciate the on-site business center, which is open daily and includes a computer workstation with Internet access and a printer. (A fax machine and photocopier are available at the front desk.) Guests who don't like checking bags can take advantage of the same-day dry-cleaning service and an on-site laundry room (fees apply). Perhaps most appreciated, though, is the complimentary breakfast available weekdays and weekends.

The staff are very friendly and competent. The rooms are kept in top notch state of cleanliness and their breakfast is so good that after eating it you can almost skip lunch.

Daughter flew out of San Jose

My daughter and I stayed 1 night before I took her to the airport the next day. We walked to the whole foods where they sell beer upstairs and bought some food also. I will stay there again especially for the price.

Great Place for SAP Center

We use this hotel a lot. Once a month during hockey season. Sometimes can be a bit on the pricey side, but you can't beat the location. The jacuzzi tub is a hit with the kiddo. If you use the body wash as bubble bath - you get A LOT of bubbles. The breakfast if pretty good and not just a continental breakfast. Staff is always super helpful and nice.
