Good 6,0
The hote was very hard to find. Its inside a mall, so the only entrance left open at 10pm at night was the resturants. Their parking was full, so they asked us to park in nearby public parking which was said to cost $6 but they actually charged us $14 next day. Breakfast was good.

Happy customer.
Three night stay. Good breakfast included. Nice restaurant plus bar restaurant with entertainment on second floor. Several shops upon entrance including a salon and small gym. Reception ee's friendly and helpful. Lots of shopping on the walking street in front and a casino across from entrance. I also like staying at the Balmoral Hotel because it's two blocks from center of San Jose. Great area!

Great location and great amenities with all the shops/restaurants within the building. For downtown San Jose, I would say the overall hotel is top notch. Second time I've stayed here. There are likely better hotels outside the city center, but given the location of this hotel, it's tough to beat!
