One-stop hub for business travelers in the heart of Silicon Valley
Located in the thick of San Jose's business district, the Holiday Inn San Jose - Airport offers stunning views of the Silicon Valley skyline. The oversized rooms, many of them updated in 2010, are only half the appeal, though. Proximity to the airport and high-tech company headquarters, plus meeting rooms for big groups and small, a complimentary business center, airport shuttle, on-site dining and even laundry services, make it an especially appropriate choice for work travelers.
Highlights:
  • Outdoor heated pool is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily
  • Complimentary airport shuttle
  • AAA 3 Diamond rating
  • San Fresco restaurant open for three meals a day and room service

 

Rooms:

Holiday Inn San Jose's spacious, contemporary rooms and suites are perfect for on-the-road workers. Oversized desks with high-back chairs give guests a comfortable work environment, while two-line phones and high-speed wireless Internet (fees apply) keep them connected to the office. A complimentary USA Today is delivered to each room on weekdays, and coffee for the in-room coffee-makers is replenished daily. Cable TV and pay-per-view movies aid relaxation before guests drift off to sleep in a comfortable queen- or king-size bed.

Features:

Between the California Ballroom, which boasts San Jose's only spiral staircase and 16,000 square feet of meeting space, Holiday Inn San Jose - Airport holds its own as an event destination. Complimentary amenities, such as a fitness room, airport shuttle, heated outdoor pool and business center, give the property a resort-like feel. The on-site restaurant, San Fresco, specializes in Mediterranean and Pacific flavors and serves three meals a day.

Stay Away

Not only was the customer service awful, but I was placed in a room with a running toilet which flooded my whole hotel room. When I complained to the front desk, they hunt up on me. I asked to speak with a manager who was abrupt and completely rude. I would NOT book this hotel. AWFUL! And I am completely disappointed that this hotel was recommended. Lost my trust.

Good Value for What You Get

We had stayed with a competitor on a different trip to San Jose and decided to stay with the Holiday Inn on the way back because it was cheaper and offered shuttle service to the airport. We weren't disappointed. The room was cleaner and it had more amenities than their competitor. The staff wasn't super friendly or helpful but they did their job. The A/C was loud in our room but other than that everything was really great. Everything was clean and better yet nothing smelled like cigarette smoke like you get in some rooms sometimes. We'd definitely stay with HI again if we came through San Jose.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a sketchy gas station just down the street that has some of the best microwave burritos and cheapest, most stylish sunglasses I've ever seen before. Right next to the hotel there's a liquor store with a very good selection. With these 2 things so close at hand you're in for a fantastic stay at the San Jose Holiday Inn.

Away from downtown, but still close to everything thanks to VTA

Great room, comfy bed, clean and spotless interior and across the street from the light rail station. About less than 5 minutes from downtown and close to the airport! They even had a shuttle to the airport! :)

Had to change rooms

Bathroom had fixture problems and lack of maintenance. Staff was understanding, but second room had A/C and plumbing problems. (recently remodeled room I was told.) A/C froze up due to plugged air intake. Overall, the hotel was not what the pictures portrayed.
