    Construction was confusing and no power

    The staff

    When we got to the room we didn't have power for the lights or the ac so I called downstairs (the phone worked) and they informed me you have to insert your keycard in a slot by the door to get power. Weird but ok, I'll play along. After a couple hours of trying to get the ac to work and trying to sleep without it, I ended up calling the desk and having them take a look. They couldn't figure it out and moved us to a room right next door, which was an upgrade. The staff was great and helpful with the situation but the new ac didn't work much better. All in all, not a bad hotel. Great location, there was free breakfast we didn't get to enjoy, they opened my bottle of wine, and took great care of my complaint. However, there was a lot of construction which was a little weird to deal with and the ac is a huge thing for me. From the north and my house is constantly freezing.

    Close to everything

    Proximity to everything. Warm water. Decent internet. Good quality sheets and comforter.

    Bed was hard. TV did not work well. No microwave. Thin walls so you can hear everything. No washcloths provided. Bottom entrance closes too early.

    Great Central location with all the necessities.

    This hotel has everything you need and is located in the middle of san Jose with easy access to transportation and all the downtown museums.

    Great location.

    I love the location. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. And the room was very clean.

    Our room didn't have a window. Just a glass door leading to a shaft.
