The Westin San Jose
There was serious noise problem across the street from our room. There were Demonstrators that caused a serious noise nuisance. Hotel management did not discuss with guests or improve the situation. Disappointing!

the Saint Claire
When I stay at a hotel, I look for one with character. When I review a hotel, I look at 3 things about the room, customer service, and food. The room: The bed - not the absolute best I've ever slept in at a hotel, but in the top few. Bed was not a rock, it was comfortable, the sheets had weight and were not scratchy. It did not have an empty duvet cover with a coverlet which I have seen way to commonly in even high end hotels. It has lots of lightweight bedding and a light weight comforter so that every one can pick and choose. The pillows were not nothing or rocks either, quite comfortable. The shower - pretty awesome. Have to see to believe The desk - worthless. I'm 5'2" and rarely find a hotel desk I am even half-way comfortable with. This was no exception. Way to high, inappropriate chair (even if fit the decor) that didn't want to slide on the carpet (one of the big reasons for the 4) Customer Service was a strong B+. What kept it from an A was that I didn't get all the green rewards I should have gotten and the day someone stole the green hanger off the door, took 3 requests to get it replaced. The food - restaurant is northern Italian basically. Okay here and there for lunch or dinner, horrible for breakfast (I hate across the street at the Marriott for breakfast.) Overall not a bad experience. Could have been better, but could have been much much worse.
