Location was perfect, grounds are beautiful, nice pool, huge bathroom, rooms need updating no refrigerator & tube TV. Price was excellent overall very clean, friendly staff. Would stay again if in the area.
Great public spaces and beautifully appointed guest room and bath. There is a great Il Fornaio restaurant. My only disappointment was that they don't have 24 hr food/snacks offering -- no late night room service, snacks in room, shop selling snacks or even a vending machine.
Stayed for my bd, most part it was great! Only two issues, first it was hot in the room so I cranked up the ac. Bad enough it was hot outside to walk in a hot room was not pleasant. We left the room shortly after check in for my dinner. When we arrived back the room was cool. The second issue is housekeeping at 930am knocks at the door waking me up asking what time I planned on checking out. Then around 1130am a knock and the door opens its house keeping. She apologized as she didn't hear me. Other then that it was great. Breakfast was good, eggs in the salty side.
I booked a room at De Anza to escape a house with no air-conditioning for one night. For that purpose, it was great. I had an attractive, cool room, and actually turned the (somewhat noisy) a.c. off in the middle of the night. I wanted to order dinner from Room Service but could not get either phone in the room to work. Discovered the bath phone next a.m. breakfasted in ropm.
Very luxurious and quiet. One bed seemed tilted, but the other was okay (only needed one). Price was good for the star level, but I couldn't help but feel nickel and dimed by all thte 'add ons' (Internet was extra, a refrigerator is extra, expensive refreshments are in-suite, etc). It's a nice place to crash for a night while in San Jose, but I would not make it my regular stop.
We did an overnight at the end of a 5 day trip to Carmel/Monterey. The hotel is impressive and the grounds are like a garden setting. We had a parlor suite which allowed us to relax in style with cocktails and appetizers. There was also outdoor access to a large patio area. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a separate shower/commode area which allowed 1 person to be at the vanity. We ordered from room service and our food was delivered quite promptly. All in all a great experience. Highly recommended. Be sure you have a good map to find it.
Traveller from Tucson, Az
This historic mansion, adjacent to Edenvale Park, is five miles from downtown San Jose and 10 miles from Santana …More
This hotel was conveniently situated in San Jose. It took a long time to get checked in (about 5-10 minutes, I was watching the clock) and the new staff was quite clueless. As compared to Homestead Studio Suites, the rooms in general are generally just average. Also, the kitchen comes completely empty now. One would have to go to the front desk to ask for plates/forks etc...
"A comfortable Hotel for Business Travel or Leisure"
I have always enjoyed the location of the hotel, as well as their larger than average room sizes. The updated décor in the rooms is comfortable, and the provision of refrigerator and microwave including some plates and bowls (disposable) is great for extended stays. The hot breakfast in the morning is a convenient way to start the day.
Basking in 300 sunny days a year, San Jose offers stylish, old-time streetscapes in its lively downtown historic district. Its vibrant arts scene explores the innovative and the traditional with galleries, museums, public works, and performances. Indie-film lovers flock to its Cinequest Film Festival each year. For shopping, visit Japantown; Santana Row mall; and Valley Fair, home to 366 stores.
