I liked how pretty and clean everything was. I loved how close it was to Santa Anna and lots of food and shopping choices. I did not like how far away it was from the airport. It had been labeled as close to the airport but it was about 25 minutes away. Very hard to find - but it was on our way out of town anyway so it turned out to be a very good choice. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff couldn't have been better. Bed was comfortable and very clean

Great value but not close to anything

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, very safe, better exchange rate
First, this is a great hotel and a great value but if you're looking for something in San Jose, this is not it. This hotel is actually in Santa Ana - a quieter upscale suburb west of San Jose. Cab rides to and from the airport will be about $20. It is a great value with modern rooms, free internet, a pool, gym, helpful, english-speaking staff and lobby computers with free printing (great for maps for day trips). If you're planning on renting a car then consider staying here. Parking is free and there are two night security guards to watch your rental car at all times. There are grocery stores, restaurants and local places all within walking distance (safe at night and only 2-3min). None of the tours we inquired about would pick us up in Santa Ana but the hotel has a tour company that will take you to all the hot spots (Arenal Volcano, Spas, beach excursions, ziplining, white water rafting, etc.). We chose to rent a car ($55/day) and took day trips along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts as well as Irazu volcano, ziplining, day hikes and San Jose sightseeing. Downtown San Jose at night did not feel very safe and we were glad that our hotel was actually in a quiet, upscale suburb rather than downtown. One last thing: The cash exchange rate at the hotel desk was almost 10% better than the airport. Unfortunately, I didn't know that until I had already exchanged some money at the airport.
