    Location, location, location. Nice room with view onto central pedestrian walkway. Breakfast was decent. Working A/C.

    Mattress was too soft and uncomfortable; sheets were very thin; no washcloths or handtowels unless requested. No way to refrigerate items since minibar was locked.

    Good location, next to all the major landmarks in SAN Jose. Big rooms, comfy beds and it's clean. For the price it's super worth it.

    The coffee and the breakfast can be significantly improved.
