    By far this is one of the top hotels in San Jose. The breakfast and dinner was not great and it is quite pricey compare to outside.

    Comfortable and safe

    We first stayed at the Grano de Oro 27 years ago on our honeymoon, and have been back several times over the years, as the hotel has expanded and grown. It is as comfortable, welcoming, and elegant as ever. The staff is uniformly polite, friendly, professional and efficient. Secured parking is adjacent to the hotel, and monitored 24/7 by the doorman and security. Breakfast at the restaurant was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to visiting again!

    This hotel is fabulous. We have stayed here 4 times now. An old mansion, I enjoy getting to be in new rooms, as each has unique characteristics. Great location for walking. Fantastic food. The lemon and blackberry sorbets are worth the stay alone.

    A Wonderful Home

    Wonderful, peaceful and calm. A gorgeous hotel that honors its history and retains many of the original decorative elements. There are multiple lounge areas, including the rooftop and restaurant lobby, where you can enjoy the atmosphere and relax. We stayed two separate nights and both rooms we had were lovely, clean and well-appointed. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Also, the restaurant serves excellent food and has a great wine and cocktail list. Parking is available free of charge on-site.
