About the neighbourhood
We are located in the area of downtown San Jose known as Japantown (one of the 5 remaining in the US). A walkable distance to the eateries and shops of Japantown. Business travelers to nearby jobs such as PayPal, or conventions at the San Jose Convention Center are typical reasons to book this space. Downtown San Jose has popular areas like San Pedro Square & Little Italy, along with historic districts with beautiful homes like Naglee Park. It's a destination for visitors to San Jose State University or Santa Clara University. It's also popular for the sporting venues like Avaya Stadium (soccer) or light rail to Levi's Stadium (football & concerts).
Getting around
It's proximity to the VTA light rail system (~6 min walk) is simply the best and probably #1 reason for stays at this space. Currently $2.25 per ride paid for at a kiosk. CalTrain is a a few light rail stops away at the main train station (Diridon). It will get you to San Francisco for some sightseeing or Palo Alto/Mt View/Sunnyvale for a business meeting. Ford Bikes can be rented at Ryland Park, a short walk down N 1st St. Bird scooters, and Lime Scooters are also easy methods of transportation when you don't want to walk.
