Positive Reviews

Warm welcome from friendly staff

Many reviewers paid tribute to the personnel, describing them as mostly very friendly, helpful and attentive. Guests were generally reassured by the sight of security guards working in the hotel, but a few times they were reportedly overactive and tried to prevent guests bringing visitors to their rooms.

Praise for food and facilities

The buffet breakfast was extensive and to many diners' liking. Those who tried the hotel restaurants for lunch and dinner were generally impressed with the quality of food and service. Facilities in the hotel also had many fans, with the free gym and free Wi-Fi both generating largely positive opinions.

Spacious and comfortable rooms

Most reviewers had praise for the comfortable beds, which featured adjustable firmness controls. The rooms themselves were generally described as spacious, clean and comfortable. The air-conditioning was more than adequate for most visitors.

Negative Reviews

Location not to everyone's liking

Most guests were happy with the location within walking distance of downtown San Jose. However, others occasionally reported concerns about the safety of areas close to the hotel, especially after dark. Nevertheless, it was easy enough to get taxis for those unhappy with walking around.

Hotel requires some modernization

There were critics who thought the hotel had an outdated feel and would benefit from some updating. Occasional problems were reported with the water supply and there were calls for enhanced soundproofing to limit noise from hallways and passing traffic being audible in the rooms.

Mixed over value for money

In general, those who booked at the most competitive rates were largely happier with their stay than those who had paid top dollar for a room during peak periods. Harsher critics were not so positive about the food, service and cleanliness.
