Nice hotel close to the airport....

I have to stay in San Jose for aproximately 3 weeks. But I also have to stay reasonably close to the airport due to business.

Any thoughts on where I should stay?

I have been to CR a few times and know of many good hotels, but none near the airport. I need about a 15 minute commute.

Need safe surroundings, decent food, and good service.

Does this exist?

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Irazu several times. Has a "Denny's" type restaurant attached, casino and a small shopping center next door with several good restaurants. Not very far from the airport.

We did lots of research on where to stay and we ended up staying staying many places in Costa Rica. For San Jose, the best one, in my opinion, is:

Costa Rica Marriott Hotel, San Jose

It was hands down, the best. Goregous weather, pool, easy access to airport, and many business people stay there. Check out the website. (Therre are 2 Marriotts around there so make sure it's the right one.)

Enjoy. I wish we were going back there soon! :o)

Have you considered staying in Alajuela? The airport is actually closer to the town of Alajuela than San Jose. The Xandari Resort is beautiful and includes a wonderful breakfast, has great hiking trails with 5 different waterfalls. It is a 15 min drive to the airport.
