I stayed for a week and will return for another in the spring. The hotel room was spacious and clean with a large bathroom. Very good internet and tv service. The window opened to an enclosed rock garden open to the sky above. It was clean and the environment peaceful. One block to several fast food locations and a small...

The proximity to the American Embassy is the primary reason we stayed here again but the hotel is excellent in the fine quality and decoration of the rooms, great and personal service and a real Chinese restaurant. This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and we will come back anytime we have business in San Jose.

This was our first night in San Jose and it was very nice. The staff was welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable, and the food at the hotel was pretty good. The only downside is that the hotel is somewhat far from downtown San Jose.

The hotel rooms are very nice. The staff was very good, easy to work with. The food in this family run hotel/restaurant was fantastic. Definitely worth staying again. Luci was wonderful, and a joy to work with, great help with setting up trips and general knowledge of San Jose and the area.
