Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hotel's public amenities are very nice. Particularly the rooftop terrace and restaurant is a can't miss place to go in San Jose. Staff is great and the public areas are well decorated. Our room however left a lot to be desired. Broken furniture, cheap furnishings very different than what was depicted in the hotel photos. Shower that sprayed water all over the bathrooms, etc... The rooms definitely are in need of some renovations.
