Very nice boutique hotel with nice view of downtown San Jose. Hotel kindly arrange for a free airport pick up for their guests (providing collection is before 11pm). We arrived late and didn't get to have dinner during our very quick transit at Newark airport; hotel kindly gave us something to nibble despite the lateness of the hour. Nice breakfast in the morning. Friendly staff. We only stayed for one night but would stay here again if visiting San Jose
