Our stay was great! The staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location is good too!

Well maintained and modern property. Upper floors have a nice view of the mountains.

This was a great property. Located in Escazu, a very nice suburb of San Jose, it is just over a quarter mile away from a great mall (Multiplaza Mall Escazu) which is on par with any mall in the US. Many places to eat in the immediate area including a very nice restaurant in the Holiday Inn. There is a rental car in the plaza where the hotel is located, although driving in the San Jose area is not for the faint of heart! My wife stayed here because it was close to Goodness Dental where she had dental work done. We were able to walk to the dental clinic and to many eating places. It is quite safe as there is much security in this area. My wife has an app to measure our walking distance and she tells me we walked 30 miles during our 10 days in Escazu. The hotel arranges any necessary transportation to get to anywhere you want to go. You can arrange tours to tourist attractions (coffee plantations, volcanos, rain forest, etc.). Beautiful country with wonderful people everywhere we went. Room was quite nice. Great shower. Carpets in hallways and our room could use an upgrade. The hallway carpets were stained and dirty looking but rest of hotel is quite well maintained. I must say I was very favorably impressed with all aspects of our stay at the Holiday Inn San Jose Escazu.

We liked everything about this hotel and area around the hotel.

Location-can walk to main shopping street, good for last night of vacation but has a noisy A/C, sheets could be a little cleaner.

Loved the walkability. A dozen restaurants just steps away.

I was happy with the hotel but thought that this was the Holiday Inn close to the airport. It wasn’t, it’s about a 35 min drive. The one close to the San Jose Airport is the Holiday Inn Express.

It was super nice to be close to some many restaurants and stores!

The staff tell a different story every time i ask about breackfast No air conditioning inside the hotel, just in rooms. Very Hot They are not facilitators for customers, male me a hard experience

The Holiday Inn Escazu in San Jose, Costa Rica is a part of a relatively new commercial center (about 4 - 5 years old) that contains several excellent restaurants ... Italian, Peruvian, Spanish, and Argentinean, etc. The hotel was very clean, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was there on business but it would also be a great place to just relax.

Location, amenities, and the people working there very nice

The hotel staff was fantastic. They couldn't do enough to make our stay more memorable. The hotel was comfortable, clean,safe and within walking distance to a mall, and multiple restaurants. We rented a car but really didn't need one. we could have used the bus system which had a stop in front of the hotel.

Me encantó el hotel y su personal muy amables. La comida deliciosa. Hotel de calidad
