Let's start off by saying this building has been completely renovated and it is state of the art. Rooms are modern,new, and clean. Our window looked out to the square and the national theatre. The windows are double so you cannot hear anything from outside, even with a packed square. San Jose is not the best city and downtown is not great for shopping even though there is a lot of shopping around. This hotel is very historic and even JFK stayed here, The breakfast and food was delicious.

This hotel is a beautiful modernization of a historical hotel in the center of San Jose directly in front of the National Theater. It has many stores and restaurants surrounding and the restaurant on the 5th floor has great views as well as great food.

The place is super pretentious, but doesn't have much to offer. The room was super small and lower average. Not worth the price
