Beautiful hotel located in quiet area of San Jose

Lovely, charming hotel with an excellent restaurant. Room was immaculate, however rather small. No coffee-maker in room, but coffee/tea is available in the morning in the hotel lobby.

Beautiful & Comfortable

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, helpful staff
We only stayed here one night before we left San Jose, but it was amazing. The staff were very helpful. They taught us a few phrases we needed to know and told us where we could get our money exchanged. They also gave us a few suggestions on where we could find a good meal. The rooftop hottubs were awesome. We went up there and relaxed and watched the stars. It felt as if we were miles away from the city, yet in the middle of it! There's also an amazing little bakery just down the street! The room was clean and cozy. The area we were in was like being inside a hotel, yet still outside. It's a great place to stay!

Excellent place to stay while in San Jose

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, secure, excellent english spoken
This is a gorgeous hotel right in downtown San Jose. About 20 minutes from the airport ($25 USD cab ride) and within walking distance (15 min) from the main plaza for shops/market. The staff are excellent. Everyone speaks very good english, very friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. Security is also good with visible security out front of the hotel after dark (important in San Jose). We stayed two nights in a regular room with a small terrace and loved it. After returning from our coastal vacation we stayed another night in the top floor villa suite. This suite is fantastic and I definitely recommend it for someone who wants to spend the extra money for a memorable night. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in San Jose.
