Beautiful but needs a new chef
This hotel is so beautiful and unique I love it so much. Unfortunately the food was absolutely dreadful and giggle over priced. It was if their chef wasn’t in. Even breakfast had issues with rancid butter. It was so disappointing. The other issue is their online menu prices are significantly less than what the pricing is when you arrive.

Great short stay at a nice property.
Great experience over all. Room was clean and comfortable. The room did have AC, but it did not cool well. That said, the screened patio doors allowed us to stay cool with the very pleasant night air. The restaurant was good, and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The best experience was the efforts the staff went to in order to provide breakfast. We were a party of eight, and had a pickup time of 7:00am to travel to our next destination. As the restaurant did not open for breakfast until 7:00am, the front desk staff went far above and beyond our expectations to work with the restaurant to put together takeaway breakfast boxes for all eight of us! Really unexpected, and very much appreciated! The overall service is unbeatable.

Such a nice hotel mini-resort. We enjoyed being there. The balcony overlooked San Jose with really cool views. Definitely recommend. It is not the big ostentatious Marriott complex. It is cozy, nice, comfortable and beautiful.

The property is absolutely stunning and the staff is the best ever. Although the broken A/C is a deal breaker for us. We were fortunate to be there before it was super hot but still uncomfortable
