A property in the Fairmont family. Being in historical downtown next to sites of value. Relying on amenities of a high end hotel which did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful in all encounters. Extra fees for wifi these days seems unnecessary. Having to use hotel cards to go between tower and main facility (although security is appropriate).
Wonderful environment, great Beds close to San Jose Convention Center. Very Friendly Staff, impecible Service.
Clean rooms with feel of knowing they are clean Ac went out. Super hot. Small beds
Can't really think of anything. 1. Room was dated. 2. Room with a view had no view. 3. Parking was expensive. 4. Hotel had no charm or allure (other than the advertised picture).
I liked that it was downtown close to bars, clubs and restaurants.
Walking distance to downtown San jose & Staff was great
Great hotel, room and staff! Got free upgrade upon arrival and an extra 1/2 hour checkout time so we could go to the next door art museum without a hassle.
Fancy, various locations to eat and enjoy yourself with partner and great America in a 13 min drive distance just a great stay after all and great valet service Beware of an extra 100$ charge at check in just in case you break anything in the hotel but will be refunded after check out and line is to long with no one trying to help them out to make the line go faster
Rooms Staff at the door
Location Bed was uncomfortable and did not have enough covers shower was outdated and shower head was cheap No coffee station in room Sparsely decorated
I just wish we had booked a longer stay!!!! Beautiful and luxurious, excellent service and amenities, and the beds were SO COMFORTABLE!!!!
Nice lobby, friendly hotel stuff, nice eniroment too old, breakfast food is not good, waiter offered a baby sit to us, but no seat belt and my 2 year old son felt down from the chair to the ground, furtunately no hurt. There are very limited shopping and restaraut choices in less than 10 minutes driving. Not convenient to move luggages to room.
Clean. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Friendly helpful staff.
The restaurant had very high quality food for the price and the bar was elegant and very accessible. Need to have FREE wifi in the rooms! This is 2015 AND the hotel is in the heart of silicone valley. For shame! Hilton
Helpful and friendly staff who keep up with the demands and requests of the guest. Also, a very quiet and clean space that allowed us to get our rest.
Great location and amazing hotel. The amenities were good as well. The rio was a nice size and I had a view of Levi Stadium. When I came back to the hotel at about 11pm there were no parking places. I believe outsiders were at the bar or guests had their friends visiting. When you are paying for a hotel room it's annoying not being able to park in the parking lot.
Everything was great Everything was good all people there are helpful
It's a good hotel with all the facilities you need, conveniently positioned across the road from the Hyatt convention center. No free WiFi, which for the price of the room, I would have expected.
Andy the concierge took care of us like an old friend.
check in and out convenience. Movies extremely expensive.
Very nice place, old but well maintained I couldn't figure out where to park.
Food was very good A good clean room and comfortable bed
I've been staying at the Toll House hotel four times a year for the past several years. For past visits the "free" WiFi used to be very slow, intermittent, and required constant re-logging in (or you could pay a daily fee to get adequate service). This visit I was pleased to see that they had upgraded the WiFi: it remains free and provided quite good performance throughout my stay,
Location. Second room was very nice.
The staff was really really nice and everything was clean and mostly modern The rooms still felt older but it still had a lot ofoder amenities
Everything, from cleanliness of our room to the friendly service.
The staff was amazing at accommodating our requests. I got the exact room I had hoped for. Convenient mini fridge, microwave, and disposable plates, silverware and paper towels were stocked in the room. There was a TV and a wall mounted radio, although it would have been better if the radio had a USB connection so we could play clearer music through our phones. Never got a chance to use the spa tub feature, but it looked like it would have been nice. We were literally right next door to CVS Pharmacy for any last minute necessities. I was also excited that Whole Foods was a 5 minute walk away at most. We had an easy walk to the SAP Arena where we watched the concert with the convenience of leaving our vehicle in the parking lot provided by the hotel. That saved about $25 in itself, and saved us from the concert traffic afterward. We were pleasantly surprised by the hot, cooked breakfast they provided from 6:30 to 9:30 am. Bacon, eggs, fruits, pancakes and french toast, plus other items we were too full to try. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are seeing a show at the SAP Arena. Update wall radio to allow USB hook up to smart phones. My fiance states the bed was comfortable, but to me it was just okay. You could hear people running around and cleaning going on during certain hours, but it didn't disturb my sleep. Overall, I had a very positive experience at this hotel.
The room was beautifully remodeled with high ceilings and lots of space. Continental breakfast was filling and fresh. My first impression of the hotel was not great, however, the staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The rooms above us were a little noisy.
Nice staff Being woke up at 3am due to excessive loud noise outside the hotel window
Location was convenient The staff was unfriendly, I did not feel welcome. The lighting in the room was terrible, air conditioning difficult to adjust, and carpet was dirty
Room is very clean and quiet. Love the Jacuzzi. Need more cable channels.
Great hotel, big tubs, free breakfast, close to light rail, very close to Whole Foods, and close to downtown.
The hotel is dated and could use a remodel, but it was reasonably priced. The room was clean, large but old. There was a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom which we didn't use. The switches and timer where outside the bathroom which dated the place. Still the room was good for what we needed it for. We had a good stay there.
2 queen size beds good for travel with family members breakfast is included free Wifi hotel is secured after 10pm
You can't beat the price and the location I also like their breakfast .
Is a great hotel, in my groups opinion it was better suited for many people than the Fairmount Hotel. Next year for fanime we will be staying at the Arena Hotel the whole time.
The design of the hotel is amazing! I love the modern feel and everything feels new. Downside was I came on a day where teenagers called "future business laws of America" were staying for the weekend. They were loud and obnoxious in the hallways, elevators, and at the pool. It seemed like I could never get away from them!
The staf was extremely accommodating and friendly. the food in the restaurants was of excellent quality and the Lounge Bar was an excellent place to relax and grab a light meal. The room was large and perfect for my business trip. I liked everything about this hotel
Room was excellent, except my city view was a view of the stadium. Can't really complain about that though it was fine. They even sent up a bathrobe to my room when I asked. There was some youth convention going on which wasn't really a problem. However it took me a while to get on the elevator to get to my room
Was given a double bed instead of a king. Uncomfortable and had to sleep in two different beds
Amazing views, great service and great bar
We needed a basic, inexpensive local place to stay for a night while our house was being painted. The good parts: the room was reasonably quiet (not much outside noise), bed was comfortable, and breakfast was included in the room rate. The room was in a very bad state of repair. Two of the electrical outlets had their plates separated from the wall, with the wiring visible. We were afraid to plug anything into those outlets. Also, the surface of the bathtub was peeling off large areas of the front of the tub. This did not affect the usability of the tub, but it conveyed a really crummy, shabby impression. As is often the case in buildings of this age, the wall-mounted heating & air conditioning unit was quite noisy when running.
The location is close to town It has not been updated, ever. The short pooled water. Loud construction beginning at 7am outside my patio door. Very much like a motel 6.
The grounds locked nice. We rented three rooms. The only thing that I felt was not outdated was the carpet. One room the toilet seat fell off. Another room the leg on the desk chair was broken. The temperature of the water in the shower kept changing. I would never stay here again.
Large facility, pleasant staff, reasonable prices. This entire hotel is in bad need of a complete remodeling, Rooms are very old and smell musty. Primitive bathroom fixtures and furniture. Bedding is not modern and not very comfortable.
This was a very nice stay. The free hot breakfast better than most. Has restaurant on site with room service. Food was good and beats out trying to find somewhere to eat in a strange town. Bed was very comfortable and slept great, was safe and quiet. Just than we had to pay a toothbrush and toothpaste but was only 50 cents!
Rooms are spacious and clean. You have to pay for almost everything else; internet, parking, breakfast.
Very friendly staff. Nice breakfast. The hotel nickel and dimes you. $2.50 for bottled water, $19 a day for parking, expensive breakfast and dinner.
Warning: Parking is NOT free at this hotel, not even for guests. You'll be forced to pay $20 to park per night! This made for a very obnoxious surprise during check-in.
The airport shuttle was terrific to have.
The close proximity to the light rail and bus stops ,with very friendly and helpful staff Only two sachets of coffee left in room to use which meant after a night cuppa nothing left for the morning. When I left a note to the maid asking for more only one more sachet was left ---barely adequate for two people!!??
Love that every room has their own balcony for fresh air. Great ammenities down stairs and friendly staff! I always enjoy the excellent customer service here. The location of the hotel is convienent, close to restaurants, shopping, and airport. Going in and out of the parking lot became an issue. At the Doubletree guests have the option of valet or self park (you are charged a nightly fee per night). We chose to self park, upon entering and exiting guests must use a parking ticket to do so, the parking meter ended up not working so we'd be stuck for 15-20 minutes along with everyone else trying to get out. They should use room keys for this versus paper tickets that eventually get bent out of shape.
I was charged twice for parking at the hotel. We were not allowed in/out entry into the parking area with our room keys. I was charged for parking at the parking gate and on my final bill. I called the hotel for REFUND and I haven't seen the refund on my bank statement as of this moment.
The room was clean and tidy. Very simple, no art or decor to speak of. The lobby looked new and modern. Staff was very professional and nice. The HHonors floor was still in carpet from the 90's. Very old and out-dated. The room was very dated as well. My daughter who is 5'4" could press on the ceiling tiles, they were so low and old.
Pam at the registration desk was friendly and professional. Great first impression! I did not receive the complimentary breakfast that was advertised; confusion about a coupon. I was a bit disappointed in this.
Beautiful grounds Nice rework of what was there previously Nice pool and hot tub Good lounge Ample parking Comfortable bed Difficult to get to (in the middle of a neighborhood) Staff wouldn't print me a receipt (big issue on business travel) Pool / spa could be open later
The grounds are really nice with a large and comfortable patio seating area and swimming pool. The furnishings in the room were old, old, old, and poorly decorated.
We stayed here 1 night in room 121. It was a suite with easy access to the swimming pool. The back door lead right to the swimming pool. The pool looks bigger in the picture but it's still a excellent size. The staff was great and Sunday brunch was delicious. Good hotel to relax and get away from the regular 9-5. The only thing I can critique is we were there on a Saturday and there's was nothing special for dinner. The bar food was ok and room service food was ok. No restaurants walking distance but no big deal. Everything was releasing
Everything from the room/bathroom was spotless incredibly clean . beautiful place to stay. Absolutely no negative comments to say.also GREAT STAFF! Very helpful and on point..even if I have to go out of my way to stay here again it would be worth it.very quite also.no traffic noises etc.will be back for another stay asap!!!
I had called ahead to make sure I coukd check in late, but when i got there, I couldn't find the front desk person (or anyone) for 5 minutes, then when I finally found her, she found my reservation, but couldn't tell what rooms were available & so had to call her manager, and long story short, it was just over half an hour between when I walked in the front door and walked into my room. She said it was her second day, which I can only imagine is really overwhelming, so I was trying to be patient, and I've had good experiences every other time I've stayed there, but i have to say, this one left a sour taste in my mouth.
The staff was very helpful when it was found out that the website I had booked through hadn't communicated with the hotel fully and they had to go digging for my reservation. But I got a room, it was very nice, even if a bit cramped, but that didn't detract from my stay. The grounds were very nice. I enjoyed their exercise room, it was more filled out than most hotels. I just wish I had had warmer weather to enjoy the pool and more time to enjoy every other feature of Hayes Mansion.
Staff incredibly attentive The shortness of our stay
Great grounds and plenty of character; a relaxing venue with history and luxury.
Used condom wrapper in the drawer. Need i say more.
Driving up the residential street and coming upon the entrance for the 1st time gives you a feeling of stepping back in time to another era. The attention to detail and the beautiful wood trim all around gave a feeling of a very special place. I had only one night to explore the mansion and surroundings.
Top notch hotel. Clean, newly remodeled, all amenities & on site restaurants etc The valet. He did not specify pricing of valet vs self park or exactly where self park was located.
I really Liked its location, we were attending a event at the convention center and the hotel is actually leads into the convention center. That was great! We didn't have to walk at all. All staff members were extremely nice and willing to offer any help that they could offer. The hotel was very busy due to the event, but the staff still dealt with customers in a very polite and friendly manner. I also wanted to say thank you to this hotel for not treating us any different than there other guest, we have been to other hotels and due to our ethnic background have been treated like we were some how less. This hotel did an excellent job treating everybody well and respectively Thank you so much! Some of the things that we weren't so pleased with that room service had certain hours and that it wasn't 24 hours and that the rooms were a little smaller than what we excepted. But overall we had a great experience
Room was very quiet, even with all of the airplane traffic on approach to San Jose Airport.
Had a problem with the first room but they helped me switch rooms no questions asked
Pay WiFi with speed tiers.
Great room overall, clean hotel in excellent location. Close to shops, food, and activities. Great service and friendly staff. Convenient parking (though it costs extra even without valet) garage connected to the hotel. Only a block away from Original Joe's. Despite a few quirks, I would stay here again. Charge for WiFi (unless you are an Elite member), ridiculous prices for snack shop food and goods ($5 for a Dairy Milk candy bar, $6 for an Odwalla Smoothie!), $45 for a t-shirt! Also, the hotel smells like the air freshener they pipe in at many of the Las Vegas hotels (could be a plus if you like that). Also, the choice of "aromatherapy" soaps are awful--why not go the clean, fresh scent of soap instead of burned wood?
Excellent location, top choice for San Jose. Walking distance to major attractions and night life in the area. Excellent VTA transit access as well. Also consider the Hilton and Fairmont nearby. Valet parking is $29 with in/out privileges. This is a reasonable price for the area.
The valet service was overwhelmed since the hotel had no self park option. Plus, the valet was serving guests who weren't even staying at the hotel but attending a concert or conference in the area. It's a bit ridiculous that it takes 20 minutes to drop off a car with valet and another 20 minutes to pick it up.
Just a motel room, no restaurant, rooms need upgrading. Found a candy wrapper on the floor when we checked it, was still there on the second day. Ice buckets do not have a plastic bag (like EVERY other motel I have stayed at). They don't supply them.
Location was good to walk into Los Gatos, price seemed a little high. Price for what we got.
Hotel was recently renovated, almost like new. It's close to Los Gatos but a very quiet location. Complimentary breakfast was served at a new restaurant next to the hotel, very nice.
Cleanliness!! Very friendly staff. Definitely would stay again! There was only one partial roll of toilet paper in the room and a box of tissue with two tissues left. When arriving after driving some distance it is important to have enough toilet paper.
The hotel had recently been renovated and everything was updated, clean, and fresh. Nice beds, good linens, nice décor.
The location and the affordability. It was old, the curtains were well past their prime. The rooms were right out of the 80's. It was clean though.
The location was very nice! Close to the freeway and downtown area!! Our shower leaked and caused us to have to use the towels to mop up the water. When checking out, I notified the front desk clerk who didn't seem to care.
For the area, it was a reasonable cost. Was comfortable and clean. Desk clerk was very nice. Other than computer issues described below, the hotel was fine for short stay. Computer system went down and they did not have a back-up plan to check people in, thus we were not able to get into our rooms for an extended time. A guest had to offer a temporary solution which they eventually followed. Room internet access difficult.
Newly renovated. Clean. Beautiful area Not that I didnt like it but the check in time. Cant check in after 1030p
Perfect location. Very clean. welcome staff. great restaurant locate on hotel site.
room service was delicious and fast. Stay was very comfortable. Beautiful large bathroom. Great location.
We loved the late night pantry
The newly renovated rooms and baths are simple and elegant. The Hedley Club lounge serves good food & cocktails. Conveniently located in downtown San Jose, short walk to Convention center. The room lacked many standard amenities: 1) password protected, high speed Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi was free, slow and unsecured) 2) in room safe large enough to fit a laptop 3) stocked mini-bar (empty mini-fridge provided but there were no vending machines or in hotel shop to buy snacks & drinks) 4) in room guide/magazine with local/city info
The bathrooms were well furnished... Better than the actual rooms. The staff was very friendly. True price I paid was not worth the room. It was a very crampt room with ancient furniture. The rooms were a boring shade of beige and our window view was another building being constructed. It's layout seemed more that of a comfort inn with a price tag of 90 dollars a night rather than 150. It's not worth the price, if you have a car go to a comfort inn and save some money cause got the same experience.
the cleanliness and uniqueness of the room and facility
Great hot tub and pool in a convenient location right in Santana row. Spacious rooms, well furnished and decorated. A welcome respite from Silicon Valley. N/a
Convenient location, rooms are spacious Staff who were responsible for room service, hotel operator on phone were outright rude
Staycation Paradse... Ran away Halloween night... Great food drinks and security keep fun a perfect balance
The Valencia Hotel is one of my all time favourite hotels. the location is excellent, priced competitively and the staff are friendly and helpful. Great service!
Very comfortable room. Close to shopping and great food.
Fun location, great vibe, beautiful common areas and outdoor living space. Wonderful breakfast included with room. Called to confirm pool was open (November) with beverage service, were told it was and that someone would come out to offer us drinks. Nobody ever came for 3 hours.
Nice stay. Room is spacious we love it.
I liked its location and the outdoor pool. It was also nice to have balconies. The parking fee was unexpected and really left a bad taste in my mouth. It felt like just another way to make money and it was not necessary. The hotel's public areas also seemed outdated, however the rooms were updated.
Proximity to Levi stadium and we loved the sports bar! Wish we would have been told at check in before we searched the area for a sports bar prior to the game though. No.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
We booked it due to the it's location to Levi Stadium and the airport. The hotel, itself, is a bit on the older side, but very well appointed .. loved the two bars (albeit expensive!), staff was extremely accommodating. Expensive bars! We had four drinks - 2 drafts and 2 vodka tonics, $ 49.00 !!! I had a mimosa in the am to the tune of $ 10.50. Just seems a little ridiculous. But the bar is on sight which, I suppose, is worth something.
Clean, safe, nice hotel and the staff was very nice. Not knowing we had to pay parking $36. It would have been helpful to know we would have to spend additional $ for parking. The room was small. They put us in an older part of the building. No elevator and with a handicap parent it was to far to walk.

First come fist serve on selecting bed
Nice bar and restaurant. Friendly staff and good location
Location to stadium
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I love the rooms. They are clean and well maintained. I feel comfortable in every room I've stayed in. The service is wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful. I enjoy coming back to this Four Points time and time again.
It is in the ghetto. Don't plan on leaving the hotel at night.
Our bed was comfortable and room was clean Requested early check in and rooms close together for our group. We were late for our function due to late check in because of hotel and weren't even given rooms on the same floor as our friends. Staff said they were giving us an upgrade for our inconvenience and didn't. We were very disappointed in their failure to accommodate our only two request!! For that reason, we will not stay at the Sheraton again!
There was a large party going on in the banquet rooms, which you heard throughout the hotel. The worse part was when it was wrapping up. not sure what was being moved...i.e.: large furniture or equipment... But after 11 pm, it is inexcusable. I would definitely not use this hotel on Friday or Saturday night due to the noise levels.
great service and excellent hotel
I was very please with the easy check in and check out process. The room was very clean, the bedding was very comfortable. The pool area was very clean and my family enjoyed night swimming as the pool was heated. It's near shopping and eating and the parking was easy. The only thing that was slightly uncomfortable was the airconditioner. It's so close to one of the beds that the air is blowing on you the entire night.
They actually have great cable, very friendly staff, just overall a great experience!
We had an early morning flight from SJC so needed a place to stay nearby. The hotel was comfortable and had a nice shuttle. The hotel is off the beaten path and there isn't much nearby. We ended up needing to eat at the hotel bar (which turned out to be acceptable).
Loved how nice the staff was from the initial entrance of the hotel. The room was lovely and very clean. Bathtub not very big for the suite. But that's out of their control.
I liked the drink coupon. The service was great . Our room was very nice and clean. There was too many kids around . The pool was kinda of tiny and dirty. I saw dead fly and a bandaid so I didn't get in the pool.
The best part about my stay at the Plaza Suites Hotel was that the room was very clean and comfortable. And the breakfast was very good too. The negative part about this hotel was the staff. They were stressed and not very helpful or nice. That being said, I believe it had to do with a little league series and the hotel was jammed packed with kids, running around like crazy.
The free breakfast is great every time we stay here. The rooms are big, location is perfect, and the bartenders make good drinks. The bar closed too early for us. We went back around 10 pm after the Sharks game and it was already all closed up on a Saturday night.
The room was a suite so it accommodated the three of us comfortable. Also, the free breakfast was great! not really
Very big and stylish room with huge and very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and a separate living room. Quiet, relaxing stay. Great breakfast buffet. Only very minor things: there was only one bathrobe and no shampoo in the room and the bartender clearly wanted to go home at the end of the evening...
Good breakfast and the room was nice for a short stay. The lobby and common areas were very nice. Front desk staff was very nice, fast, and efficient. Room was rough around the edges. Traffic sounds from the highway were very loud in the room. The bathroom needed some repairs - the shower was nearly impossible to turn on the valve was so stiff. Bar staff was slow and rude.
Great amenities with pool/workout room/ and arcade, clean, and spacious rooms Room had a little of a smoke smell and I'd pass on the bar area.
Clean, modern spacious rooms. Paid Wi-fi access with high priced rooms did not make sense. Hot water for showers was not hot,
The room itself was great! It was definitely a sight for sore eyes when we checked in late into the night. But the staff were pleasant and cheerful. I'd book again hands down. Thanks for the stay!
The shuttle to the convention center was good. I was in a room in the back of the hotel with no elevator. They charged me for breakfast while others were given breakfast free. The breakfast wasn't a great one and had very little choice other then scrambled eggs and a few other things. The shuttle to the convention center was unavailable after 10:30. My whole point of getting a hotel was so I didn't have to drive and to avoid parking. The staff was not very helpful.
It was easy to find, clean, quite, and friendly Nothing
It was functional and my room was fairly large It was considerably overpriced for the value. The hotel looked and felt like a lower middle market hotel, not up to the brand standard or the price.
Windows open 5 inches for fresh air, large tv, elevator was quick Breakfast was barely passable, staff was nice but did not care, bookings.com does include breakfast even when you pay for it, bar food was not presented well and it was not tasty, pillows were terrible
The location is convenient and the price reasonable This is an odd and aging facility that is absolutely filthy
Price & location; room was nice.
We had a wonderful night here with our kiddos for a little "staycation." We live in San Jose and wanted to get away for a night befor using our Great America passes. The room was nice and clean the beds were comfy and the pool and jacuzzi were AWESOME! Very nice. My hubby was a bit bummed that there was no continental breakfast.
Beautiful hotel. Nice garden patio area where room looked on to. Food quality was below average. The 28$ filet mignon was tasty , but only half inch thick. The "baked" potatoe was steamed in a warming tray. The breakfast buffet was not worth the price, and sub par. Potatoes were hard and tasteless, pancakes were hard. Actually had better, and more choice, at free buffet with Best Western Plus. No restaraunts or meeting spots to watch games or get snacks on weekends, or afternoons
clean quiet room bed too soft, and too high off ground
I've always thought La Quinta's were great motor hotels, but I was not expecting to find such a beautiful modern style design, like other boutique hotels. The room was clean, the hotel staff were great. Access to WiFi was easy. And It took me less than ten minutes to get to the airport. There are not a lot of dining choices near by, but it gave me an excuse to explore the city. I found some great restaurants about ten minutes away.
Room was clean. Most of the staff was friendly.
The beds were confortable and the rooms clean. They changed me to 3 different rooms in 5 days because of several issues so I get the chance to try several beds. The staff was friendly. The outside of the building looks more like a motel and the carpets looks old. In my first room, the AC was broken and it was 80F. They moved me to another room the next day just under the construction. The renovation was going from 8:30am until 6pm weekend included. Add the noise of the airplanes taking off, this hotel was the noisiest place I ever stayed. The hotel is directly under one of the runaway of San Jose airport and not next to it so the noise is higher than any airport hotel I stayed in the past. The food was terrible. I ate outside after my first breakfast there. There is no restaurant on-site or nearby. Their parking shares the parking of a fastfood but I don't call this a restaurant to eat. The neigborough was really not nice (industrial looking). I would never come back here.
The evening attendant arranged to have a cab waiting at a specified time. Just as promised the morning attendant reminded me of the arrival time for the cab. a few minutes early - ghe cab appeared. Very satisfactory for my late arrival and early departure.
