As always most thing was excellent. However, the food is expensive and not very good. Front desk service is great and room service is very good. Rooms clean and functional. I have stayed at Balmoral many times and will continue to stay there.

This Hotel overall pretty good, it is within walking distance to a lot of San Jose attraction. Room prety clean, and breakfast was OK. I stayed here because I have early flight back to Los Angeles in the morning. Airport roughly 30-40 minutes away.

Balmoral hotel is a great hotel in a central, walkable location. We didn't move our car while we were there as we were able to walk to dinner, breakfast, attractions, etc. Very friendly staff. Very comfortable and quiet room.
