Lovely hotel with good amenities, friendly staff and great rooms. The daily happy hour was popular with our group although we may have overwelmed the staff. If you stay don't miss the pool on the 3rd floor.

A great place to stay. I felt very safe and comfortable here. The staff spoke English and Spanish. The gym was just fine for a workout. I was able to go out and walk for exercise and to see Santa Ana. The corner restaurant served some amazing food!

We've been here 3 of the 5 nights we've booked and have thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. The hotel is quiet, clean and feels/looks like an art gallery. It's located in Santa Ana, which equates to a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport ($30) and $25 dollars to SJ during rush hour. It's located near a brand new business development...

Rooms were super comfortable, beds were great, staff helpful and responsive, food very good. I would recommend it for a stay in the San Jose area. The restaurant both in the hotel and just outside served excellent food. Included breakfast was satisfying and ample - lots of choices.
