I paid $80 US tax in a night at this hotel for 2 nights. Considering what you would pay for a hotel in north america and the quality you would get, this is a nice clean hotel,staff was proff, friendly with good spoken english. Try and get a room on a higher floor for the view and to avoid hearing the car traffic The pool is lovely with an outdoor restaurant , and the grounds are beautiful as well. Flat screen TV's, room service ( slow however and they sometmes forgot my oder). Now the problems with the hotel are such....terrible location! 10 mins by cab to Downtown San Jose..will run you $ 12 US every time ...no meter cabs from this hotel :( would have cost 1/3 the price. Highways all around you...now at this price you can find goreous hotels in downtown san jose with a pool as well. So do some more research, but def do not spend your entire holiday in San Jose at this Hotel. You are cutting yourself short. Oh! make sure to reserve the shuttle bus from the airport. I was told on the phone that they pass every 30 mins to pick up guests....so i waited for 2 hours at the airport ..calling the hotel! Yet must admit it was a luxury getting picked up as an added service offered by the hotel. Cost me $ 25 US to cab it back to the airport when I left from a different hotel.
