Do you know the way to San Jose...

My husband and I were in San Jose for a whirlwind weekend family event leaving DC on Fri morning and heading back Sunday. We definitely wanted to stay in a hotel in downtown since it's conveniently located around lots of conveniences such as shops and restaurants (esp the foodies we are!) You expect high standards from a company like the Sheraton and this Four Points in San Jose was overall excellent. Minus points for no pool or hot tub but at least they have a small gym area (and free access to the gym 1 block away). In addition, room we got was SUPER small with the bed taking much of it...although on the plus side, bed was SUPER plush and comfy. Service was nice, great Asian fusion restaurant just downstairs (Mosaic) and PLUS points for a quiet outside seating area and bocce ball fields!

Nice hotel

I stayed there for 2 nights as I wanted a place in downtown . the location is great and there are many good restaurants near by. Hotel it self was clean and nice. only thing is the staff did ask my Credit card at check-in but they didn't tell me that they will be holding a deposit of $100 on my card, so I was struck when I saw a hold on my card online and plus it doesn't show my there name so it took me some time to realize that it may be them. Anyways nothing big .. other day when I asked the front desk they confirmed it.... all in all I had a pleasant stay

Good Location

Hotel was very clean, room looked to be recently updated. Not a speck of dirt/dust anywhere. Kudos to housekeeping. Location was perfect for our stay, right in the middle of San Jose's opening day for Christmas in the Park. Lots of restaurants to dine nearby within walking distance. Also within walking distance to SAP Pavillion where we attended back-to-back hockey games in a 2-day span. Convention Center and Tech Museum were 1 block away. Hotel staff was very courteous and helpful, recommending fantastic local restaurants for dining.

Good spot to stay after bar hopping in SJ

Nice upscale lobby , room was very clean . Not much of a view but good deal for Saturday night . Only bad thing I have to say about the hotel are the maids entered the room twice before we checked out

Guest parking lot is before the hotel on a one way street it's better to park there first instead of the small registration parking lot

Wonderful Stay

Hotel was easy to find, although you do have to pay over $20 to park there. The staff was very friendly when I checked in and as part of the room I was given a free day pass to the local fitness club just across the street and a coupon for a free beer taste in their on site restaurant. Upon entering the room you immediately see a nice plush bed with cotton sheets which is what I love most about staying away from home so I was happy. They had an MP3 player and brookstone sound system in the room but since I don't own an apple product I couldn't use them. I like the fact that they had shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel dispensers vs. just small bottles. The only thing I did not care for was the thermostat. you could only put it on or off and high or low so it was constantly on. I do like the fact that is is in the heart of downtown so you can walk to a lot of eateries and shops. Overall I would definitely be back.
