“Convenient with great breakfast”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

I only stayed one night on my way to a scuba diving trip but thought the hotel was very cleaned. The staff is efficient and polite. I thought the morning breakfast provided a great
choice of food. The room was spacious and very comfortable. I can recommend this hotel.

I felt very much at 'home' here and my room was consistent with the high quality of customer service while still at a very fair price! definitely would recommend and will return back here. I rented a vehicle which they offer free underground parking for.

No complaints about this place; our stay was short and on IHG points (15K for one night). Front desk staff & bellman were literally exuberant at checkin and knowledgeable of the area. Escazu is bustling (heavy traffic the whole time we were there) with a wide array of retail options, and this Holiday Inn is plopped right in the middle of all that. Room was clean, comfy beds, in-room coffee, consistent wi-fi, plentiful hot water. Canceled our 2nd night to go to the beach, and front desk didn't refund the points for 2nd night, but we don't care about that. Free parking in the hotel garage. Gym right next door. Espresso cafe across hotel driveway and Starbucks around the corner. Terrific location for shopping and restaurants. Housekeeping came too early--that's the one small gripe but would still come back here.

This is a great hotel if you go to San José/Escazu
The rooms a big, quite and well furnished (I almost thought I was in a high end hotel)
The breakfast is good.
In addition you are 10min away if Multiplaza
In contrast this hotel is a little bit far from the downtown of San José

Room Tip: Be an ing frequent traveler and you will be ungraded to the 6th floor

Dear Sir:

Thank you so much for your comments. We are happy to know that you liked our hotel and services. Multiplaza is a 10 minute walk or 2 minutes free ride that we offer. Regarding downtown, yes we are located in a suburban area, the newest of the city.

Thank you again for staying with us.

The hotel was phenomenal. My room was immaculate, A/C and shower worked perfectly, and the staff was fantastic. The wireless worked great as well. In addition, there are numerous quality food options next to the hotel. After a week in the jungle, it was heaven.

This is a great hotel if you need to be located near Escazu, next door is the CIMA Hospital and Multiplaza Mall. The service is very good, the rooms are comfortable and modern and suprisingly one of the best food for room service we have had. Nearby Avenida Escazu has a good choice of restaurants.

We came from Dallas for my surgery at Hospital Clinica Biblica. After surgery I am staying at the hotel for 7 days. The staff couldn't have been more attentive or helpful. They did everything from bringing me jello every morning to bringing three different chairs to my room until I found one that would accomadate my bad back. They actually brought one from the lobby! My husband and I don't speak any Spanish but the staff made us feel totally comfortable! We are here for three more days and I wish Holiday Inns in the U.S. would take notice of this one! The rooms are spotless and the staff accomodate me as to when I want them to come in to clean. One word of warning...the breakfast buffet isn't a waffle and pressed sausage covered in syrup mess we fat Americans are used to! These people take very good care of themselves and the food reflects that. Wonderful!
