If you need to attend a convention at the San Jose Convention Center, this hotel is a good option if the surrounding hotels are booked.
It's not as high end as the nearby Fairmont or Westin -- as expected -- but the location is right next to the Fairmont which has a nice small mall-like area with a McCormick and Schmidt seafood Restraunt as well as a great Japanese store called Muji.
There is a movie theatre 2 blocks away that plays great award winning independent films ( Sundance awards etc ... ) and the interior seats are very nice despite the outside looking a bit run down.
The front desk staff are very polite and efficient. Sometimes a bit too speedy. If they slowed it down a little it would project a slightly higher end experience.
The interior of the hotel is above average for this level of hotel. And since I had a guest with me, I booked a room with 2 beds which was very, very spacious. I hear that they don't have many rooms with 2 beds.
Beware however, that if your room faces the side of the train tracks, you can hear the train's bell which is a bit annoying.
The biggest area of improvement that's needed is the bed. This hotel puts some type of plastic like mat between the top sheet and the mattress which is very annoying because it causes the top sheet to not lie flat. And this can be uncomfortable. Strange choice. Get rid of that asap!
