Wonderful Hotel!
Beautiful old hotel in central San Jose, close to everything! The staff go out of their way for you. Extremely friendly. President John F. Kennedy stayed here in March 1963. On every floor are pieces of the furniture he used. Delicious food. We wished we had more time to spend here! Thank You!!!

Right in the core of downtown. This hotel is perfect. Recently renovated- get like a 4 star hotel in manhattan. It cost us over $200/night- but honestly you get what you pay for- no complaints.
