Nice hotel if you are looking for a bargain I was not told before I arrived that my room did not have air conditioning. There was only a ceiling fan and some windows which when open left you with absolutely no privacy. I am allergic to cigarette smoke so it did not help that my neighbor stood outside my cracked window and smoked constantly. ...

Book a San Jose Boutique Accommodation that is Uniquely You

After you've arrived in San Jose, you'll discover that all your concerns are left behind and you can rest easy for the next few days. You'll realize that a number of travelers had the same holiday idea as you. San Jose has seen an 82% increase over last year. Wherever you might visit, you always take your one-of-a-kind self with you, and Expedia provides reservations at the most distinctive boutique hotels in the area.

Small Property with Immense Character

These modest hotels like flaunting their individual personality, unlike their more conservative, big-chain siblings that aspire to please everybody. And with your cutting edge fashion and a desire to beat your own drum, part of the ideal trip is finding a spot in San Jose that embodies you. Most boutique hotels have traits such as:

  • A desired location in the most happening area of San Jose. You'll be a short walk away from the area's hottest sites.
  • A more exclusive stay, as boutique hotels usually have less than a hundred rooms.
  • An idiosyncratic style that you just can't find in bigger hotels, from individually designed rooms to intimate bars, and thoughtful touches that make them feel like home.
  • A highly personalized type of service, where the concierge will know you before you check in.

Indulge in Everything San Jose Offers!

San Jose has rooms to suit all types of budgets and preferences that create a stay extraordinary.

Stay in Style While in San Jose

If you need a stay in a San Jose boutique hotel that will make you feel like a guest in a classy abode, book quickly, since everyone is as well. Fortunately, Expedia has all the best deals on the most fashion-forward boutique accommodations. A distinctive stay is only a few clicks away!
