Beautful, clean hotel with lots of charm and very helpful staff. Comfortable rooms. Please note that the 4 start rating I gave is comparing it to other 5 start hotels - for a five star it is above average. If they rated themselves as a four star facility I would have given them a rating of five. Would definitley stay there again. Much better than a "big box" and their restaurant is fabulous

Stayed here as a landing spot and not only was the hotel beautiful (OMG the orchids in their gardens/lounge) and old school mansion feel, the staff was beyond gracious and you shouldn't miss the rooftop hot tubs and lounge space.

Wonderfully relaxing room with a beautiful private garden lounge. The food in the restaurant is delicious and service was excellent. Hotel was a short stroll from the Central San Jose area, along a very safe street. The hotel paid much attention to keeping everyone distanced and virus-free. Beautiful hotel and great value.

We went to get a deluxe room that had a small implanted area outside a set of doors - a great touch. The area was of reasonable size but the bathroom was little. Decor is a bit old fashioned but everywhere was clean. The restaurant is great but do not expect European criteria. Service is fine with no being great. Both wine and food proved much too expensive for what's available. But it's a really nice looking restaurant and you'll enjoy your meal.

Go to place in the city for some romance, luxury and top service. Pampered and well looked after. We whiled away the hours in the comfortable outdoor dining area and moved more graciously by the staff into the indoor bar/cafe for drinks as they had to set up the dining area for dinner. We were upgraded and given a lovely room with a very generous welcome fruit basket and a gorgeous enclosed garden. Very charming and tranquil place.
