      We stayed for the final night of our honeymoon before our flight home. Hotel went above and beyond to make our stay special. The staff were all lovely. Location excellent - next door to two of the top 5 attractions in San Jose.

      • Disliked: Staff & service

      Booked 4 months before my visit. Unfortunately, 3 months before my stay, I had to cancel due to a change in plans. Hôtels.com could not locate my reservation and when they finally did, they informed me that they could not reach a representative of the hotel. I followed up with Hotels.com on numerous occasions, but to no avail. In the end I was charged for the room even though I didn’t use it. My poor review is more a reflection of Hotels.com that of the hotel. I will never do business with Hotels.com again.
