wanted more from this hotel!

Paid a lot for a room that I expected to be more luxurious. Good location but ultimately I felt it was not nearly as special a stay as I was hoping for a big birthday weekend. No vanity kit in the bathroom to older bath tub left me feeling cold. Speaking of cold. ..the hot water kept dropping out! Seriously!? There was also a champagne debacle, I'd ordered some with chocolate strawberries as a birthday surprise. ..it took 6 HOURS to get it. ... obviously they got lost in the shuffle. Wanted more!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The bakery across from the hotel has delicious ham and cheese croissants, yummy alternative to costly breakfast or lunch.

Extremely comfortable and quiet.

There was a Sharks game the night we stayed at this hotel and expected it to be noisy. However, we were pleasantly surprised. We had a very quiet and peaceful nights sleep. Our only negative was that the hotel charged for wifi.

Great Location!

Stayed for a long weekend and never had to worry about driving anywhere. Taxi was always ready, food and nightlife is everywhere. The only issue i had was the room aircon it was not cold enough and had to open my windows for the whole time i stayed, which is still not a big deal for me. San jose weather is just always nice and that's why i didn't bother requesting for a new room. Staff are all extremely friendly.
