I recently stayed at the Hilton San Jose for a conference. Thanks to the combination of mix up in my booking (my Hilton HHonors number had been left off) and a sold out hotel, I wound up with two double beds rather than a single king/queen sized bed. To make up for it, the front desk offered me access to the executive floor lounge, even as a HHonors gold member.
Since I was going to the San Jose convention center, the hotel had an excellent location. In light of my slow progress at requalifying for Hyatt Diamond, I’m wondering if I would have been better off at the Hyatt Place across the street.
My only complaint about the hotel is that it sits approximately under the flight path of San Jose airport, so I heard planes going over during most of my waking hours in my room.
