Great room / less than ideal communication
The communication was horrible. I had no clue that this was different than a traditional hotel. It would be nice if the app let us know to keep an eye out for check in instructions to avoid issues getting into ou room. Also, the bluetooth/app key did not work so we had to obtain a physical key. Also, there were no details about parking and we were blindsided with a $40 per car charge.

Check in took forever
It took nearly 45 mins to find out how to check in. Poor communication

Great place! So spacious! The only downfall is getting to the reception. We had to ask a few times & be directed to the correct floor.

4/10 Fair

There was no EV charging available for WHY guest and parking was $40 without charging although there were Chargepoints in the garage. They had fees for everything extra like if you wanted to check-in early it was $50 per hour and that just felt like it was overpriced where in a regular hotel if the room was ready they would let you check-in with no additional charge. The elevator and card key system was not working well with the parking garage and an alarm sounded every time you went in or out of the garage

This place felt more like home than your typical hotel experience. The availability of the kitchen and laundry made my stay in the in city far more pleasant than I expected. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

Unit was nice and clean when we arrived. Some of the lighting fixtures didn't work (bedside lamp and bathroom light) but overall it fits the need. Staff were very helpful, both Placemaker and the building front door staff. The phone app didn't work to unlock, but the card keys worked great on front door and unit door.

Nice, Hi-tech Hotel
The WhyHotel was great in that the room was spacious, clean, and quiet. The only negative that I had was that the TV required that I subscribe to streaming services -- something I don't currently do. Otherwise, the hotel was great.

WhyHotel when you just need a place to stay....
Overall is was a great experience. I don't recall getting communicaiton about parking but I figured it out and was told by another guest to call and get a space assigned. The key app worked great with all the readers except my room. I got a key card so I didn't have to fumble around with it. Otherwise, it was two blocks from San Jose State and we could easily walk to campus and visit our son.
