Some improvement required
My question regards early check-in has been replied to 1 week AFTER check-in date :-o The car that was arrange by the hotel was terrible; old and unsuitable (4 PAX don’t need a 12 seater van). Very uncomfortable. Room was ok, hotel is too cold in all public areas, a huge waste of energy. Room service tends to forget orders.

Beautiful hotel and close by to central San Jose. The staff at check in could have been more friendly. And it list free water but I was charged $11 dollars and when speaking about it at check out the receptionist said there was nothing he could do even though he agreed saying the water should be free.
