Can't really think of anything. 1. Room was dated. 2. Room with a view had no view. 3. Parking was expensive. 4. Hotel had no charm or allure (other than the advertised picture).
Clean rooms with feel of knowing they are clean Ac went out. Super hot. Small beds
Fancy, various locations to eat and enjoy yourself with partner and great America in a 13 min drive distance just a great stay after all and great valet service Beware of an extra 100$ charge at check in just in case you break anything in the hotel but will be refunded after check out and line is to long with no one trying to help them out to make the line go faster
Wonderful environment, great Beds close to San Jose Convention Center. Very Friendly Staff, impecible Service.
Location Bed was uncomfortable and did not have enough covers shower was outdated and shower head was cheap No coffee station in room Sparsely decorated
A property in the Fairmont family. Being in historical downtown next to sites of value. Relying on amenities of a high end hotel which did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful in all encounters. Extra fees for wifi these days seems unnecessary. Having to use hotel cards to go between tower and main facility (although security is appropriate).
Walking distance to downtown San jose & Staff was great
Rooms Staff at the door
Great hotel, room and staff! Got free upgrade upon arrival and an extra 1/2 hour checkout time so we could go to the next door art museum without a hassle.
I liked that it was downtown close to bars, clubs and restaurants.
It was very clean and comfortable. The room came with a mini fridge and microwave. Great cable TV channels, more than I've ever seen and it was free. Staff were always friendly. The free breakfast was good with made to order omelets, oatmeal with all the trimmings, breakfast potatoes, meat choice, waffles, cereals, etc. I stayed Sunday through Thursday and the price was unbelievable for this area with what it offers. I've recommended it to my friends and coworkers. Also the bed was super comfortable. The free internet was really fussy but I'm secret happy about that... It kept me from working and I actually relaxed instead. People complained about the noise-- my room faced the freeway above the wall-- I didn't really hear much and put the ac fan on only and I heard nothing-- so that isn't a complaint.
Good Location and friendly staff Only one bath towel.
Decent staff, good bed, not terribly expensive for the area. Breakfast is all right, with eggs-to-order being the highlight. My room faced a porch where people talked on the phone and smoked at all hours, and the door didn't block noise or smoke. The wifi was terrible -- frequent dropouts, got kicked off the network all the time, and slow even when it worked. Hard to find in between freeway ramps. Ubers always get lost picking me up here.
great breakfast and friendly staff
The room was very stylish and functional. All the amenities that a solo traveler needed. If I'm in the area again this is where I'm staying.
The complimentary breakfast far exceeded our expectations - made to order omelets, sausage, freshly made potatoes. And the front desk staff were incredibly friendly.
Friendly Staff. Clean, comfortable room with a better breakfast than one expected.
Hotel Zico is sweet and like getting away to a Greek island. The hotel was beautifully set up to get away from the city bustle I'm used to. I enjoyed the comfy beds and close dining areas around the hotel. The walls are thin so we got to hear rowdy kids at night and loving couples too. So the other hotel visitors were the issue not the hotel it's self.
Friendly staff, great breakfast buffet with custom omelettes, comfortable bed, heater and frig not too loud, convenient right off hwy 85. Lots of places to eat close by. Near to Stanford. Much better value than Domain Hotel nearby. Nothing.
Comfortable Room and able to good a good night's sleep. Breakfast room was a good size. Buffet style service- waffles, hard boiled eggs, toast, banana bread muffins, country potatoes, sausages/bacon or both, and made to order omelet, greek yogurt and toppings. We could usually skip lunch. Need to approach hotel slowly on El Camino- Entrance driveway is close to the entry for Route 85S - If you miss it- need to drive and make some U-turns on El Camino to get back.
The dacor is cheap but effective, much as the facility itself. The mattress was good enough, and they had pillows of variable firmness. The wifi was fast enough for my needs, though I was dropped once. If you are harder of hearing, this is _the_ place for you! Nice amenities, though much of it built as cheaply as possible, and one has to run the Air Conditioning fan (from which, ours did not blow cold air) to generate the white noise to override the televisions and conversations from our neighbors above, below, and on each side, as well as the traffic noise from 85. I hope I'm still as effective, though slow, when I'm as old as the elevator is now. Forget the shared balcony. There's no sound-proofing in the French Doors, so you hear every annoying syllable your drunk neighbors emit, as well as every hybrid accelerating down the 82/85 interchange ramp right below and behind the property.
Great location, clean room, friendly service, above-average breakfast, fast WiFi, nice layout. Can't think of any complaints.
Helpful and friendly staff who keep up with the demands and requests of the guest. Also, a very quiet and clean space that allowed us to get our rest.
Andy the concierge took care of us like an old friend.
It's a good hotel with all the facilities you need, conveniently positioned across the road from the Hyatt convention center. No free WiFi, which for the price of the room, I would have expected.
Clean. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Friendly helpful staff.
The restaurant had very high quality food for the price and the bar was elegant and very accessible. Need to have FREE wifi in the rooms! This is 2015 AND the hotel is in the heart of silicone valley. For shame! Hilton
Everything was great Everything was good all people there are helpful
Great location and amazing hotel. The amenities were good as well. The rio was a nice size and I had a view of Levi Stadium. When I came back to the hotel at about 11pm there were no parking places. I believe outsiders were at the bar or guests had their friends visiting. When you are paying for a hotel room it's annoying not being able to park in the parking lot.
Convenient location and easygoing staff. Room 100 is adjacent to the laundry, the lobby, and the breakfast room. It is the only room in the hotel like this. It sees constant noise until 1am and beginning again at 5am. Charging (after taxes) roughly 300/night for such a room is an embarrassment for any hotel, not least a business hotel for commuters. More professionalism please!
The staff would not try to help guests, rather just "do" their job Very bad experience interacting with the staff. Inconsistent information among them to guests, got misled, and they were not helping at all. Disappointed.
Staff was very helpful. Hotel was overbooked, but they arranged another hotel, gave a voucher for an extra night and a small gift bag and paid for the transport to my business meeting (since I couldn't use their shuttle).
The staff was very friendly and the hotel facilities were very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable and the favorite part of my stay!
Friendly staff. Good room. Modern, kitschy design. Hallways felt a little dreary. Same with the breakfast room.
The front desk people are really nice and helpful. Their staff seems to know what they are doing and genuinely care to accommodate you.
The tootsie rolls at the front desk, the effort to try and turn a very basic hotel into something a little more via small things like stocking the fridge with a few beverages that you could purchase was a nice effort. While the breakfast may be basic, I thought the steamed rice, fresh pineapples and papaya juice helped make it feel more special than a run-of-the-mill hotel. If you can't change the architecture, you can add little touches, which they did. The fruit infused water was nice too. Staff was great. While we were there they offered fresh-made guac for a small fee during the evening hours--totally unexpected.
I especially liked the hi-fi Lounge on our floor. Great place to sit and read when getting up early. Very relaxing.
The staf was extremely accommodating and friendly. the food in the restaurants was of excellent quality and the Lounge Bar was an excellent place to relax and grab a light meal. The room was large and perfect for my business trip. I liked everything about this hotel
Room was excellent, except my city view was a view of the stadium. Can't really complain about that though it was fine. They even sent up a bathrobe to my room when I asked. There was some youth convention going on which wasn't really a problem. However it took me a while to get on the elevator to get to my room
The design of the hotel is amazing! I love the modern feel and everything feels new. Downside was I came on a day where teenagers called "future business laws of America" were staying for the weekend. They were loud and obnoxious in the hallways, elevators, and at the pool. It seemed like I could never get away from them!
Was given a double bed instead of a king. Uncomfortable and had to sleep in two different beds
Amazing views, great service and great bar
The room was beautifully remodeled with high ceilings and lots of space. Continental breakfast was filling and fresh. My first impression of the hotel was not great, however, the staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The rooms above us were a little noisy.
Room is very clean and quiet. Love the Jacuzzi. Need more cable channels.
The hotel is dated and could use a remodel, but it was reasonably priced. The room was clean, large but old. There was a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom which we didn't use. The switches and timer where outside the bathroom which dated the place. Still the room was good for what we needed it for. We had a good stay there.
The staff was amazing at accommodating our requests. I got the exact room I had hoped for. Convenient mini fridge, microwave, and disposable plates, silverware and paper towels were stocked in the room. There was a TV and a wall mounted radio, although it would have been better if the radio had a USB connection so we could play clearer music through our phones. Never got a chance to use the spa tub feature, but it looked like it would have been nice. We were literally right next door to CVS Pharmacy for any last minute necessities. I was also excited that Whole Foods was a 5 minute walk away at most. We had an easy walk to the SAP Arena where we watched the concert with the convenience of leaving our vehicle in the parking lot provided by the hotel. That saved about $25 in itself, and saved us from the concert traffic afterward. We were pleasantly surprised by the hot, cooked breakfast they provided from 6:30 to 9:30 am. Bacon, eggs, fruits, pancakes and french toast, plus other items we were too full to try. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are seeing a show at the SAP Arena. Update wall radio to allow USB hook up to smart phones. My fiance states the bed was comfortable, but to me it was just okay. You could hear people running around and cleaning going on during certain hours, but it didn't disturb my sleep. Overall, I had a very positive experience at this hotel.
Is a great hotel, in my groups opinion it was better suited for many people than the Fairmount Hotel. Next year for fanime we will be staying at the Arena Hotel the whole time.
Everything, from cleanliness of our room to the friendly service.
2 queen size beds good for travel with family members breakfast is included free Wifi hotel is secured after 10pm
You can't beat the price and the location I also like their breakfast .
Location was convenient The staff was unfriendly, I did not feel welcome. The lighting in the room was terrible, air conditioning difficult to adjust, and carpet was dirty
Great hotel, big tubs, free breakfast, close to light rail, very close to Whole Foods, and close to downtown.
kitchen amenities apparently someone had a dog that barked frequently throughout our stay.
Room was clean and spacious. Kitchenette was perfect for extended stay. Complimentary breakfast was really good. No hot tub
My room door was left open after cleaning when I was out.
Spacious studio, clean, kitchen in room, complimentary breakfast!, great for families, will look into Residence Inns for future travels Shower curtain smelled slightly mildewy, lotion was half used already when we got there
Rooms are spacious and clean. You have to pay for almost everything else; internet, parking, breakfast.
Warning: Parking is NOT free at this hotel, not even for guests. You'll be forced to pay $20 to park per night! This made for a very obnoxious surprise during check-in.
The airport shuttle was terrific to have.
Very friendly staff. Nice breakfast. The hotel nickel and dimes you. $2.50 for bottled water, $19 a day for parking, expensive breakfast and dinner.
The room was clean and tidy. Very simple, no art or decor to speak of. The lobby looked new and modern. Staff was very professional and nice. The HHonors floor was still in carpet from the 90's. Very old and out-dated. The room was very dated as well. My daughter who is 5'4" could press on the ceiling tiles, they were so low and old.
The close proximity to the light rail and bus stops ,with very friendly and helpful staff Only two sachets of coffee left in room to use which meant after a night cuppa nothing left for the morning. When I left a note to the maid asking for more only one more sachet was left ---barely adequate for two people!!??
I was charged twice for parking at the hotel. We were not allowed in/out entry into the parking area with our room keys. I was charged for parking at the parking gate and on my final bill. I called the hotel for REFUND and I haven't seen the refund on my bank statement as of this moment.
Love that every room has their own balcony for fresh air. Great ammenities down stairs and friendly staff! I always enjoy the excellent customer service here. The location of the hotel is convienent, close to restaurants, shopping, and airport. Going in and out of the parking lot became an issue. At the Doubletree guests have the option of valet or self park (you are charged a nightly fee per night). We chose to self park, upon entering and exiting guests must use a parking ticket to do so, the parking meter ended up not working so we'd be stuck for 15-20 minutes along with everyone else trying to get out. They should use room keys for this versus paper tickets that eventually get bent out of shape.
Pam at the registration desk was friendly and professional. Great first impression! I did not receive the complimentary breakfast that was advertised; confusion about a coupon. I was a bit disappointed in this.

Amenities; spa, pool, gym For me, the location was convenient and easy to get to work. Gentleman holding the front door entrance Cleaniness of my room The meals were good The location is not surrounded in a lively area. More amenities should be offered at this hotel
Great service without being intrusive.

Convenient, clean, upscale The Restaurant's food was overpriced.
No refrigerator to store my perishable snacks and water.

First class in every way!

An incredible property! Convenient to US-101, it's a wonderful property. I was treated extraordinarily well; every need was met.
I was bitten by the bedbugs. It was terrible!
It was where I needed it to be. It was clean and easy to deal with through Kayak. Just a place to sleep. Nothing noteworthy.
Convenient location; always feel welcome - have stayed there 15-20 times over past 3-4 years. No
Well kept facility, good breakfast for the price, best price in the area for a hotel with two beds in a room, close to Shoreline Amphitheater. Out of the way location.
We booked on points and were upgraded to a Cabaña suite. A huge space with a balcony overlooking a plaza with a gorgeous tree.
The nightly rate was reasonable. We decided to stay here because it was so close to San Francisco. We had a good experience with crowne Plaza. I recommend it..
very nice hotel, comfortable, very clean,the staff was helpful, good location, free internet
It's very clean! I would definitely recommend others to stay here. What I didn't like was that the Restroom Door is See-through.
The staff was extremely nice and professional. I felt so welcomed. Clean hotel!!! I would definitely come back.
Good onsite breakfast buffet. I wasn't a huge fan of a first floor room with motel-style hallway windows so that was a little uncomfortable but in the end it was still quiet and didn't seem to cause any issues.
Beautiful grounds, large rooms, quiet, good value for the money Although in good condition, the facility is dated
The staff were very helpful and the room immaculate.
The staff were helpful and upgraded us to one of the suites. The rooms were old fashioned and we had an exercise bike in our room
Beautiful setting and gardens. Two highly-rated restaurants on premises. Heated pool and lovely pool setting. Friendly staff; immediate response to requests. Spacious room; useful mini-kitchen with prep counter, sink, refrigerator, and utensils. Comfortable bed. Ample room lighting. Convenient work desk and sitting table in room. Mix of contemporary and baroque furnishings is odd. No microwave in room. No hot tub/jacuzzi at pool. No fresh (refrigerated) half-and-half available for the coffee in the lobby.
Everything was great. Especially liked the staff - very helpful. The Deluxe room was big with two queen beds. Our room in the back of the property had a flat screen tv. Dinah's had character, and the grounds are beautiful.
Very nice and friendly staff. They even gave us an upgrade which was a pleasant surprise. The room was very clean and spacious.
Needed two rooms and got a good pre-pay rate. Short stay but comfortable. Very good breakfast on site.
Considering how much cheaper it is than surrounding hotels, this place has everything you need. Clean, comfortable room, good (free) hot breakfast, friendly staff, etc. They pride themselves on having free WiFi, with no password needed. This is true, and the speeds were excellent. However, you have to remember that this means all traffic is unencrypted.
Awesome selection of breakfast food and nice outdoor area with a pool table!
Everything...happy hour; great breakfast No light switches near the bed
The pool area is absolutely beautiful and my double room was quite spacious and comfortable. They really do well with the little things. The location was very central to my business reason for staying.
Happy Hour, large room, relatively good wireless internet, better than average breakfast, comfortable bed. Phone didn't work, no easily accessible bedside lamp, carpet could be replaced.
Very nice hotel in a great area. For the gym they are affiliated with the YMCA which was amazing. Will definitely stay here again
Comfortable, clean double queen room with separate sitting room Large screen TV in both rooms 2 sinks, large bathroom Fully stocked & locked beverage fridge & basket of snacks Decent complimentary breakfast Excellent location & why access Decent price; booked through KAYAK.com Hot tub/pool - large, clean & fun. Although closing is documented as 10pm, we were very quiet and the hotel staff did not bother us...we stayed in hot tub till 11pm. Major issue: HOUSEKEEPING DID NOT CLEAN MY ROOM. I had organized the room specifically to help housekeeping do an efficient job and needed all new towels and stuff...but returned at 6pm to a (still) dirty room. Called front desk (housekeeping closed by then) and they brought up 2 towels and new soap. You know, "I'm sorry" just doesn't cut it. Refused to let me have a couple of snacks for free as compensation. Pretty 'cheap.' Bad customer satisfaction handling. Pool/hot tub should close at 11pm, not 10.
Rooms are very well kept and the beds very comfortable. Clean, spacious bathroom. Breakfast was included, not a ton of options, but tasty. There was also a happy hour on one of the nights we were there, which was surprising and very nice after a long day of driving. Facilities a little outdated, you can tell that the hotel is not new. Rooms are a little dark. Very slow elevator.
it was only overnight
Close to Stanford campus where we were attending an event/ A bit hard to get in and out of parking lot.
Early check-in allowed at 1:30 pm and noon check-out. Free wifi. Room was sensibly and tastefully appointed including ergonomic chair and bed. Next to El Camino and yet a nice natural setting. TV basically did not have digital channels or I could not find them. Maids banged on the door real loud.
Peaceful and quiet and beautiful setting. Perfect for a visit with our grown children!
My family enjoyed the lush landscaping surrounding the grounds. It added to the ambiance and the rooms (w/ robes and refrigerators) were very nice.
Spacious room. Comfortable beds. Beautiful, peaceful grounds. Heated pool in a beautiful garden setting.
Location Lights were extremely dim and I had to buy 100 watt light bulbs so I could read the paper
This hotel is very cute and affordable. It's close to Stanford, has a nice little pool, and beautiful landscaping. It's very clean, up to date, has a great overhead shower, and the bed was super comfy. The deli next door is great too! I would definitely recommend this to someone going down to Palo Alto. We considered staying in a big name hotel for more money, but opted for this place because it had more character, free parking, and was closer to the school. I'm so glad we did!
Clean, accessible, convenient to everything, quite rooms, fridge in room, plenty of parking. Nothing. No complaints.
A good hotel with a nice little pool. Friendly staff.
all rooms are smoke free
Pay WiFi with speed tiers.
Great room overall, clean hotel in excellent location. Close to shops, food, and activities. Great service and friendly staff. Convenient parking (though it costs extra even without valet) garage connected to the hotel. Only a block away from Original Joe's. Despite a few quirks, I would stay here again. Charge for WiFi (unless you are an Elite member), ridiculous prices for snack shop food and goods ($5 for a Dairy Milk candy bar, $6 for an Odwalla Smoothie!), $45 for a t-shirt! Also, the hotel smells like the air freshener they pipe in at many of the Las Vegas hotels (could be a plus if you like that). Also, the choice of "aromatherapy" soaps are awful--why not go the clean, fresh scent of soap instead of burned wood?
Top notch hotel. Clean, newly remodeled, all amenities & on site restaurants etc The valet. He did not specify pricing of valet vs self park or exactly where self park was located.
Had a problem with the first room but they helped me switch rooms no questions asked
Excellent location, top choice for San Jose. Walking distance to major attractions and night life in the area. Excellent VTA transit access as well. Also consider the Hilton and Fairmont nearby. Valet parking is $29 with in/out privileges. This is a reasonable price for the area.
The valet service was overwhelmed since the hotel had no self park option. Plus, the valet was serving guests who weren't even staying at the hotel but attending a concert or conference in the area. It's a bit ridiculous that it takes 20 minutes to drop off a car with valet and another 20 minutes to pick it up.
Room was very quiet, even with all of the airplane traffic on approach to San Jose Airport.
I really Liked its location, we were attending a event at the convention center and the hotel is actually leads into the convention center. That was great! We didn't have to walk at all. All staff members were extremely nice and willing to offer any help that they could offer. The hotel was very busy due to the event, but the staff still dealt with customers in a very polite and friendly manner. I also wanted to say thank you to this hotel for not treating us any different than there other guest, we have been to other hotels and due to our ethnic background have been treated like we were some how less. This hotel did an excellent job treating everybody well and respectively Thank you so much! Some of the things that we weren't so pleased with that room service had certain hours and that it wasn't 24 hours and that the rooms were a little smaller than what we excepted. But overall we had a great experience
Driving up the residential street and coming upon the entrance for the 1st time gives you a feeling of stepping back in time to another era. The attention to detail and the beautiful wood trim all around gave a feeling of a very special place. I had only one night to explore the mansion and surroundings.
The grounds are really nice with a large and comfortable patio seating area and swimming pool. The furnishings in the room were old, old, old, and poorly decorated.
Everything from the room/bathroom was spotless incredibly clean . beautiful place to stay. Absolutely no negative comments to say.also GREAT STAFF! Very helpful and on point..even if I have to go out of my way to stay here again it would be worth it.very quite also.no traffic noises etc.will be back for another stay asap!!!
Staff incredibly attentive The shortness of our stay
Used condom wrapper in the drawer. Need i say more.
We stayed here 1 night in room 121. It was a suite with easy access to the swimming pool. The back door lead right to the swimming pool. The pool looks bigger in the picture but it's still a excellent size. The staff was great and Sunday brunch was delicious. Good hotel to relax and get away from the regular 9-5. The only thing I can critique is we were there on a Saturday and there's was nothing special for dinner. The bar food was ok and room service food was ok. No restaurants walking distance but no big deal. Everything was releasing
I had called ahead to make sure I coukd check in late, but when i got there, I couldn't find the front desk person (or anyone) for 5 minutes, then when I finally found her, she found my reservation, but couldn't tell what rooms were available & so had to call her manager, and long story short, it was just over half an hour between when I walked in the front door and walked into my room. She said it was her second day, which I can only imagine is really overwhelming, so I was trying to be patient, and I've had good experiences every other time I've stayed there, but i have to say, this one left a sour taste in my mouth.
Beautiful grounds Nice rework of what was there previously Nice pool and hot tub Good lounge Ample parking Comfortable bed Difficult to get to (in the middle of a neighborhood) Staff wouldn't print me a receipt (big issue on business travel) Pool / spa could be open later
The staff was very helpful when it was found out that the website I had booked through hadn't communicated with the hotel fully and they had to go digging for my reservation. But I got a room, it was very nice, even if a bit cramped, but that didn't detract from my stay. The grounds were very nice. I enjoyed their exercise room, it was more filled out than most hotels. I just wish I had had warmer weather to enjoy the pool and more time to enjoy every other feature of Hayes Mansion.
Great grounds and plenty of character; a relaxing venue with history and luxury.
