Very posh feel internal deco. Lovely Italian restaurant. Love their common area table for some work. Rooms are very small but they have a very comfy bed and sheets. If only they have a pool in this establishment. Only small issue faced during my visit, one lift were broken down and yet to be repaired. Thus it may take a...

Wish I had stayed more than 1 night! Other than elevator maintenance, the rooms were very stylish and comfortable. Valet was efficient and staff was very accommodating to help with my updated loyalty #.

Older Hotel, used to be St Claire, they have upgraded things. The rooms our nice, being older you might still hear some noises from the outside, but we were fine, and will stay here again. Great location downtown, walking distance to many good restaurants and bars.

Great location close to everything you need downtown. Friendly staff, they remembered me at check in from a previous visit. Valet was prompt and friendly. The room was very well appointed, the bed was very comfortable, the room felt very new, huge TV, free water and Starbucks and I loved the tall shower head and water pressure. I slept perfectly...

The hotel offers comfortable, clean, and stylish accommodations. The beds and bedding are excellent quality as well as the bathroom toiletries. The location is excellent, walking distance to many restaurants, bars, museums and galleries. Il Fornaio restaurant downstairs offers a great selection and quality of entrees. There is no onsite parking; valent parking is efficient. The staff and general manager...

This hotel was great. Great location, food, room, service, and bed. The only drawback was they don't keep their refreshment center stocked. Had to go across the street to the Marriott to get snacks. Would highly recommend this hotel!!

This is a good hotel with a decent location. Beds are exceptionally good and rooms are stylish furnished. They are however very small and the light rail outside the hotel is noisy (and I had a room on high floora). Restaurant is good.

The customer service was amazing and no matter the request they fulfilled every need. I had a very large group of guest stay at the Westin and not one person had anything bad to say. The location is prime, in walking distance from restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend the Westin to anyone!

The one thing I love most about the Westin is the Heavenly bed. Restful sleep. The hotel is old but with a nice upkeep. Check in and check out was a breeze. I'm an SPG gold member so got upgraded to a King studio. Location is very convenient in downtown San Jose. Because of that, it's a bit noisy (e.g....

Dear cesmunch, Thank you so much for your feedback! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay! I also love our Westin Heavenly bed, so much so that I have one at home! It's nice to see that you liked our location (can't beat being in the middle of downtown!) and that your check in and check out was...

This hotel was clearly an old office building or old hotel right in downtown San Jose and exuded charm of days gone by. It has been updated to look old, but is very stylish. The Italian restaurant Il Fornaio is located in the lobby and serves the hotel guests for room service as well. Our breakfast was delicious although it...
