I'll Return to Austin, if Just for the San Jose A review of Hotel San Jose

Definitely geared toward a young, hip, non-child-toting crowd, this is by far the most enjoyable hotel I've ever stayed in, the world over.

From a pool-sized hot tub that was perfect on chilly winter afternoons to the organic/vegan soaps and shampoos offered, everything was close to perfect. The staff were beyond courteous -- the concierge, knowing we were new and alone in town called one night to tell us about a great show going on later -- and unbelievably accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and simplicity rules. The grounds are small but lovely, with rock benches, cacti strewn everywhere and even a small goldfish pond. The location can't be beat for access to the Continental Club and funky South Congress shops. The courtyard bar was always in full-swing by 6, but was never too loud after-hours, though it was quite chilly outside. If you're headed to Austin, the San Jose can't be beat for atmosphere and calm.
