We chose the Del Rey, and yes, bought the t-shirt. The three of us separated and were in the bars during the evening, moving from one bar to the other. My sister played the casino. The bars are filled with women wanting to make some money, even hitting on us women, which was ok with us. We felt very safe...

A good place to stay in San Jose on leisure but not a good place for ladies, kids or couples. Front desk staff is friendly although not always the speediest. Rooms are clean but a little small and a little tired. The location is smack in the centre of downtown and taxies are readily available to get around as well...

Not a great place for kids or couples. The staff was great and the room service was good, fast, and very reasonably priced. The regular rooms are a little small, but other than that fine. The first two nights I had a balcony room and it was great. Familes beware. There are a lot of women of the night there....
