I stayed here for a business trip to the silcon valley area and the company I was visiting selected the hotel. It is a standard marriott style accomodation with internet included. The rooms were perfectly acceptable, with comfortable beds, a little on the cold side (the heating was too noisy to use) and a reasonable sound proofing. Some rooms have small balconies and there is a gym and small pool as well. The main cliental appears to be business travellers which means the hotel is pretty quiet but this does cause a few problems in the morning as the room for breakfast was often full at around 8am. Also a couple of the mornings there were problems with the hot water either luke warm or totally cold one day when the boilers broke. As for the location it is next to the great mall where there are lots of shops and some places to eat, there is also a light rail stop from which you can go into San Jose or elsewhere in the region. The hotel only serves breakfast and then there are a few snacks for sale at the front desk so if you are not travelling with a car take this into consideration, but there are some options at the mall or if you travel on the light rail. As an alternative it is possible to get the hotel staff to take you somewhere in the shuttle buses and they do offer shuttle trips to San Jose airport.
A couple of issues with the hotel was the lack of a safe in the room, this is something that really annoys me as when I am travelling for business I often have important documents or my computer that sometimes I do not want to take out with me. So as advised I tried to leave my valuables at the front desk where they have boxes but they were all full so instead the manager put the items in his office, however, when I returned from my trips it took over an hour to get hold of the manager and get my items out of the office, yes they were safe but it was rather inconvenient when I had deadlines approaching and many hotels of the marriott standard or lower have laptop size safes in all rooms. The other thing that was frustrating was that the cleaning staff would not adhere to the replenishing towels rules. I do not feel the need to have a fresh towel everyday and as such hang my towels back up as suggested but despite doing this I received clean towels everyday.
Other than that the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do. I can't speak for the value as I was on a business trip it was all covered and I don't even know how much it was per night.
