Four Points by Sheraton San Jose Downtown
Ranked #5 of 75 Hotels in San Jose
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2012

We only stayed here for one night, but it was a good experience. I thought the property was really nice for a 3 star hotel.

The only negatives:

-Check in/check out wasn't as smooth as it could have been. There was some confusion about the number of rooms and SPG status.

-The bar/restaurant were closed for two private events.

This is my new go-to hotel in San Jose. It is unexpectedly nice for a Four Points (which I usually find efficient, clean, and kind of "sterile"). In fact, it's much nicer than a lot of regular Sheratons where I've stayed. This hotel has character! The inside is architecturally interesting. The rooms are very hip. Great bed. Lobby has a restaurant that you might actually want to eat. Parking is convenient (but kind of expensive - $20 for self park). Front desk staff was great. I'm surprised, and impressed.

This is a weird little place. Used to be the Hotel Montgomery apparently. You'll actually have trouble finding it since the sign for the hotel restaurant is bigger than the one for the hotel. Small lobby, older elevators, etc. Nicely updated though. The room I stayed in was actually quite spacious, though very oddly furnished. Very very small desk. If you need to do any work at all its a bit tight. Decent internet, though the WiFi as seems to be common for these Sheratons is very spotty--moving around the room you'll lose your connection. Parking is VERY expensive for this area at $20/day. And this location is very inconvenient to get to--lots of traffic all sides. If its valuable to you where its located, in the middle of everything downtown, it may be worth putting up with this. If not, stay at the one in Milpitas instead--free parking, nice pool, more space, cheaper rates, newer, etc. AT&T 3G coverage here is incredibly poor by the way. Nice bed. Cheap towels, amenities etc.

We stayed here for one night. 2 adults, 3 small children). We were lucky to find the last room available: the Presidential suite. The bullet points:
Pros: room size was generous; windows were squeaky clean and afforded good views, within walking distance of the Tech Museum and several restaurants, the valet was very helpful in providing travel tips and let you self-park, front desk was helpful in securing a negotiable rate

Cons: giant hair balls on floor upon arrival (hopefully from someone cleaning a brush); noisy room-the bell of the team quite clear each time as well as plumbing and a/c mechanical noise; carpet stains and overall lack of cleanliness; old, tired furnishings in need of replacement, a terrible pull-out mattress on the sofa bed (although most sofa beds are bad); inability to turn volume on tv up to a decent level; lackluster toiletries; no swimming pool

Summary: there are comparable hotels with more amenities (ie. free parking, free breakfast, free Internet) at a lower or comparable price 5 miles away. You're not downtown but do you need to be?

I was kind of excited to stay here as I wanted to stay a non-traditional hotel. You can tell once you walk in that this use to be an old hotel from the crown molding and the small lobby. We arrived very late at night so, I wasn't expecting much in room choices. We had a room on the 2nd floor facing the garden. The room was clean and big enough. The bedding was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with extras. They do provide free water but I wouldn't drink it as the company they buy water from adds ingredients to the water. Go ahead and read the label but when I drink water I want to know that there is nothing but water in it. The room came with a refrigerator. We had no problems using the internet. We had a late night snack at the restaurant. The front desk said that it was Asian Fusion but it wasn't. It had a mixture of asian type dishes but you could also order bar type food. It was good enough. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. They do charge $20 bucks to park. We stayed on points but I probably won't stay here again.
