San Jose Marriott

This is a five-star property and facility with all the amenities and facilities one would expect: two tennis courts, a driving range and putting green, a 24 hour fitness center that is accessible with your room key, an exercise trail, two swimming pools, and a full service spa. There are three restaurants: one with its own chef and distinctive menu, a restaurant with outside dining, and a small-scale restaurant for sandwiches, salads, desserts, etc. The San Jose Marriott is located about 20 minutes from the airport and 20-30 minutes from the central city. The setting in the Central Valley is extraordinarily scenic as the accompanying pictures illustrate. For a full set of photos see the hotel website’s photo gallery.
