Close to all the hip spots

You know I didn't spend much time in my room but when I did I felt very comfortable and was able to relax. The bedding was nice which was nice and rare to come across. I would def go back again and probably will next month.

Lovely setting

The Holiday Inn in San Jose is not the stereotypical Holiday Inn. It is a large comfortable hotel with a lovely patio area in back leading to its conference facilities. The room was not overly large but was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It is very convenient to the San Jose airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

friendly airport side hotel

It was pleasant surprise to see a high class holiday inn c;ose to airport. The room was clean and security was tught. I liked the breakfast which was included in the price. The check-in personnel were all friendly and they also gave printed map and directions to go to pebble beach area. In total it was a good price and value was superior for california.
