... for a while. Then, Karena had to go.
Thankfully, my jet leg is getting better. I was no where as tired today as I was yesterday. It is so funny how much reverse culture shock I am experience. I constantly act in silly ways within American society. Now, I realize that things in America are expensive compare to China. Also, it feels so odd not to use Chinese anymore. So relieving to have accessible customer service now. The internet is no longer slow.
... Princess later in the cruise.Then the call came back from Princess that we should get to Quebec as quickly as possible and they would help us from there. They still could not say how they would be able to help us. So we left our gate and headed across the airport for yet another departure gate with the hope that this time we could make it to our elusive destination of Quebec.
At our new gate our aircraft was already at the gate when we arrived. It was a ...

Once we met him at the beach we sat there and watched the surfers and played in the sand for a while. Then we headed back to the car and said goodbye to my aunt and grandparents as they were going back to Redwood City. My uncle and cousin ...

Everyone was quite friendly and helpful especially since our evening had not been the best once landing at the San Francisco airport.

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton San Jose
Very nice hotel - clean, new, nicely decorated
We recently stayed at the Hyatt in San Jose, CA (Aug 12-14 2005). After checking in, we couldn't wait to check out. It was dirty and run down. I cancelled my reservation after one night and moved to the Doubletree just down the street.
The rooms were newly redecorated. They were large, clean and very nice. The pool was small but clean with very comfortable chairs. The price was cheaper than the Hyatt and the hotel was much nicer.
The staff was excellent and recommended great places for dinner. Sonoma Chicken Coop is great.
My fiance was attending a two day real estate appraisal class at the Doubletree, which is only about an hour and a half from our home in Oakley. Since he'd been traveling the whole week prior, we decided to book a room and I would accompany him and take advantage of the recreational opportunities while he attended class. I had a great time, and the staff was wonderful about things like early check-ins and late check-outs. The pool and spa area was lovely - a great place to while away the afternoon reading a good book and enjoying a beverage. The night we spent there, we had a very nice dinner in the Coffee Garden. Then sat out by the pool and enjoyed the evening breeze. What should have been a boring weekend for me turned into a very pleasant one.
The San Jose Doubletree Hotel has all of the amenities that you would expect in a hotel of this caliber, so I won't repeat those here. I appreciated some extra touches: each bed has five pillows -- four well-stuffed feather pillows and one firm pillow with "Sweet Dreams" stitched on its cover. I also appreciated the comfy down comforter, even though it was summer. It would be heavenly to snuggle into it during a cold winter's night. Another nice touch was that there were lots of easily-accessible electrical outlets. This included a six-plug outlet immediately adjacent to the bed, and only one plug was being utilized by a lamp. Therefore, there's lots of room for your laptop, your cell phone charger, my kid's GameBoy charger, etc.
My husband was in town for a conference in San Jose recently and we stayed one night at the Doubletree San Jose. I searched every website imaginable for the lowest rate but found that the hotel's own website gave me the lowest rate of $199 per night. I had also stayed at the Fairmont the month before nearby at a rate of $139 so I was astonished at the price! I called to make the reservation and was told that the rooms at the conference rate were all booked and we would have to take the regular rate. They did not even try to compensate by asking if we had AAA. When I asked about it, the man on the line said they didn't have AAA rate. Don't most hotels have that? Due to the conference, my husband and I decided that it might be worth the money to be only four floors above his early morning meetings rather than battle the downtown traffic.
Cut above your average airport hotel
Large and attractive room. Relatively soundproof, although you obviously can't banish airport noise completely. Good shuttle service to the airport. All in all, a cut above your average airoprt hotel.
The Doubletree San Jose is a very nice airport hotel. Lobby is spacious and relaxing, rooms are clean and well-decorated. Hotel is very convenient to the airport and freeways, and there is ample free parking. For the business traveller, the public areas offer free high-speed wireless internet access, and the rooms have large work desks with plenty of electrical outlets. In-room high-speed internet (through network cable) is $10. Bathroom is clean with basic amenities, but shower pressure was very bad. The beds are very comfortable with plenty of pillows, and there is a nice lounge chair with ottoman. Do beware the "shared balcony rooms." The balcony is actually an outdoor public patio, and several rooms open onto it. If you're worried about security, opt out of this room as the patio is easily reached from other parts of the hotel. These rooms are also noisy because they overlook the pool. I would certainly stay again if in the area.
Drove up to attend the Gilroy Garlic Festival and found this hotel by bidding on Priceline. I bid $35 for 2.5 stars and was upgraded to 3 stars which was great! We stayed on the second floor in the back of the hotel next to the freeway. Didn't hear the freeway and airport noise. The room size was larger than normal, as noted by other reviewers. Didn't try out the free wireless in the public areas, but high-speed internet in rooms is $9.95, unfortunately. Furnishings are nice. Room was clean. Nice additional sink/bar separate from bathroom. In-room bathroom amenities were disappointing (only shampoo, conditioner, 2 soaps, and lotion). You can request complimentary additional amenities by calling lobby (razor, shower cap, etc). Water pressure in shower was bad. 2 beds are queens (w/ 3 pillows) and not doubles, which was nice. Also came with nice ottoman. Ample electrical outlets. Nice big work desk. Lighting in room was a bit dim. Note: when we checked in the woman warned us that we would have a "shared balcony" which she explained was a balcony that the guests next door could use to walk over and look into our room. We decided it would be okay. What it ended up being was basically a public area patio above the pool. Fortunately, no one ever used it, so we weren't bothered by noise. Another note: the hotel often hosts meetings/conventions and is designed such that small meeting rooms are adjacent to guest rooms. (You can tell if yours is next to a meeting room is your room has a number and the room adjacent has a name like "Riesling" or "Chardonnay" etc). We weren't advised that our room was next to one of these. Around 10am a bunch of people were singing songs next door. We were up already though, so it was ok. Overall, it was a nice stay, especially with the priceline price. Being able to avoid the "shared balcony" and adjacent meeting room would've made the stay perfect.
Great Doubletree Property
We stayed here recently (Feb 23, 2004) after finishing a vacation in California. We wanted a hotel near the airport for an early morning flight. This is a wonderful hotel with many rooms (very nice apportioned), a very friendly and helpful staff, 2 restaurants, a bar, a nightclub, pool, hot tub, and exercise room. The location is ideal for access to the airport and is quiet, considering this fact. I highly recommend this hotel.
I spent the week of August 18-21 at this hotel. The place was packed due to the search engine confrence and the Grambling Football team staying there.The staff of the hotel was kind, patinet, friendly and professional.I would recommend this property to anyone staing in San Jose that wants to be near the airport.The property it's self was clean and quiet. www.doubletreesanjose.com/
Convenient for the business traveler
Very nice restaurant inside, and the DoubleTree is nicely located close to the airport (not too noisy considering the location). Nice amenities also include high speed internet access and workout facilities. Clean rooms and nice people as well.
