I love this hotel and i stay in this hotel every time i'm in San Jose. I was there for one night this time and after checking in, i stepped out only to come back to sleep around 2am. The A/C was making a loud rumbling noise and i recorded the issue. I was tired so i placed earplugs and went to sleep. I mentioned this issue at check out and even forwarded the video on a staff phone for them to share with the manager. I was told I would get a call back or an email but to this day i have not heard back. It is disaponting to get this type of service for a loyal customer from intercontinental management.
