A reminder of what S. Con. lovingly used to be…
I love this hotel and have stayed here multiples times. It’a casual, cool, understated hotel. It’s an anchor to S. Congress in that it’s been around for quite some time and remains consistent. The only critique I have is that it could use a little refresh. We enjoyed the pool albeit the interior of it needs some rework as it has many large chips in the finish.

Anniversary Stay
The Hotel San Jose went above and beyond in making our anniversary stay very special. We were provided with a secluded room featuring a broad veranda and comfortable patio furniture that allowed us to enjoy the outdoors late into the evening. I also ordered rose pedals from a local florist and, at my request, the hotel staff spread them artfully across the floor of our suite. We also enjoyed our time at the pool and outside bar and seating areas. Overall, we could not have enjoyed a nicer stay!

The property is amazing. So relaxing and chill, we had such a great time. My ONLY issue is that the cleaning staff tried coming in our room three times before we were checked out for some reason. Other than that, fantastic.
