When faced with a cancelled flight, we booked into the Radisson based upon another traveller's advice that it was close enough for us to enjoy a walk to the historic downtown of San Jose. Their website indicates they have both airport shuttles and taxis and lovely swimming pools. When we called to arrange a shuttle, the staff said you have...

I stayed at the hotel in December 2016. Had a few problem regarding getting access to the fitness room. the fitness room is very small and without AC so very warm. Had dinner in my room served by room service and it was very good.

When our flight came in at 4:35, we knew we'd miss our puddle jumper flight on Nature Air, but I was extremely pleased with the Radisson, as the staff was super friendly and accommodating. Ironically, I find the level of service in other countries often better than in the US, and this rings true with our stay in San Jose....

Moreover the tray under the ice bucket was covered in razor blade marks from the many cocaine users who had been there before. This was very distasteful and I do...

Do not accept a room that faces the road. The trucks enjoy using exhaust brakes ALL night just outside your window. It is very load, and no you nor want to get used to it. The staff is great and service is excellent.
