My friend and I chose to stay at Colours because of its proximity to the US Consulate after her passport (and pretty much everything else) was stolen. Colours was truly an oasis for her after such an ordeal. The place made her feel so safe. We stayed in a small room on the bottom floor, in the corner, which was cozy and felt like a little cave of comfort. Location wise, it just depends on what you are in SJ to do, for how long, and how much you want to pay for taxis. Breakfast was delicious, as were the margaritas. The staff were so helpful and kind. They arranged a taxi/shuttle for me to the airport for $20. The only negative things I would say are in regards to upkeep/maintenance. The ceiling of our room leaked a bit, luckily right near the door where a plant was, but it still made the floor wet. Also, there are two hot tubs, one of which is filled with those Chuck-E-Cheese balls (awesome idea), and they seemed to be a bit dirty and have temperature regulation issues. Fine when you're an adult and can identify when water is too hot to be in, but I'd be cautious with kiddos. Overall though, I will definitely be back and send folks to this hotel when in SJ.
