The hotel is a good deal and great location if you are catching a flight, HOWEVER, we purposely booked this hotel because of the park and fly which includes a free shuttle. 4:30 am rolled around and we go downstairs to catch the shuttle and the front desk told us that he didn't show up and we would have to catch a taxi. We almost missed our flight and had to spend $30 on a taxi. If the hotel messes up they should make sure their customers are given what they paid for!

Toward the southern tip of the San Francisco bay lies the beautiful city of San Jose. When you're traveling to Californian shores, San Jose is a highlight surrounded by the landscapes of the Santa Cruz mountain rangewhere trails entice hikers to get out their walking boots along with the Big Basin Redwoods State Park and the sheltered coastline of the bay. Seaside weather makes it perfect for visits at almost any time of year, and it even has its own international airport (SJC), so you can fly straight to the heart of the action. Year-round events present culinary delights, local musicians and more, while the museums and restaurants exude the spirit of life in San Jose.
Guests in the city can choose whether they want to stay downtown, where the excitement and entertainment is, or have a more quiet vacation close to the water. San Jose hotels start as low as $80 per night for standard motels or inns, and if you're looking for a more luxurious stay, there are many more upmarket choices. Hotels in the downtown area or near the bay cost anywhere from $250 to $300 per night.
San Jose has multiple museums that cater to travelers of all ages. Fast forward into the future at the Tech Museum of Innovation, see the style and history of the area at Ainsley House, or take the kids to learn how the world works at the Children's Discovery Museum, where hands-on exhibits include an area where the kids can blow giant soapy bubbles, or visit the Mammoth Zone! exhibit to learn about the giant prehistoric mammals.
