It's an absolutely breathtaking property. Any imperfections are dwarfed by the overall experience of staying here. That being said, the imperfections: the room espresso machine water tank had mildew in it and after two attempts at getting it cleaned by leaving it out, had to take it to the front desk. The room jacuzzi jet airflow control was broken. The shower was so echo-y that if you talked too loud, the sound would muffle and could not be understood by my wife standing right next to me. We had to shower with both doors open. We paid for included breakfast, but we were only given access to a limited spread compared to the main hotel, which was an extra $10 per person per day. It would've been nice to know about that beforehand. All little things, that would not stop me from staying there again, but would love to have corrected.

Dear William, We’re very sorry we didn’t provide you with the high quality of amenities and service you deserved during your recent stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Cariari San Jose. We apologize for the malfunctioning of the espresso machine and the airflow control, we’ve reported the problem to our maintenance team. We’ll be sure to address the issues with the room amenities. We see that you were unhappy with the breakfast charge, and we apologize if the charge wasn’t clear when you booked it. We work hard to personalize each guest's experience and try to keep costs affordable. Your review helps us maintain a focus on both of those areas. Thank you again for your review. Our front desk department goes through a detailed process every day to make sure that our guests receive exactly the service they expect. We hope that next time you’re in San Jose, you’ll stay with us again.

This Property was wonderful and clean and nice and everything good you could say...except there is a night club near by? Because I heard a lot of Bass and Drums while trying to sleep. It was a Sat. Night so maybe a party in or around the hotel.

The property was very nice and clean and the staff was very friendly helpful. I didn’t like that it was a little tricky to get to if you’re driving your own car. A lot of people could not give directions but we’re happy to recommend Waze!
