Our first morning exploring downtown San Jose and we were craving a Traditional North American Breakfast. The food was really good and the service was good. The fresh fruit on the pancakes was the highlight.

The food here was a little bit more pricey than you would find in a lot of other restaurants in San Jose but that’s to be expected of a hotel. That being said, the food was good and the staff was very nice and helpful,...More

The meat platter for 2 off the bar menu was really good and would probably do 3 with a side. Wine selection was also good and also pleasantly surprised when I got the bill. Staff excelent too, thinking of going back tonight!
