Nice hotel with some good amenities. The rooms are quieter than I expected considering it's location is on a busy street. Many dining options are within walking distance.

This building has a long history -- the hotel was made famous by the jazz era and I'm glad the new owners have maintained characteristics as a nod to its history. It was renovated a couple years ago before Destination Hotels took over. Their spot is perfect -- it's walking distance to San Pedro Square, which has a farmers market Friday mornings and whose street is lined with restaurants. It's a short walk to the rest of downtown and you can enjoy the SJ Art Walk the first Friday of every month. There are a number of small museums, art galleries, and lots of different cuisines to explore.

The room was cozy with a large TV in the king bedroom; the bathroom was quite modern and bright although there's no bathtub, only a shower.

There's a restaurant attached to the hotel (La Pastaia) and a lounge (Hedley Club). Definitely check the website for Hedley Club's evening events. They have regular jazz nights. On the night I was there, it was Latin American night with lots of people going in to salsa dance to a live band. If you're staying at the hotel, present your room key and you get in without the cover charge. On the wall of the Hedley Club is a smaller version of the Diva Diver mural that's outside the hotel. It was a piece of artwork that was created when the hotel had a heated pool.

Very well maintained hotel and lounge. Everything looks upscale and elegant. I would definitely recommend the desserts and music in their lounge.

I booked a room in this hotel via

For $125 I was pretty impressed with what I got with the hotel and the room. The place from the outside looks fairly old, but inside, I really liked what I saw. While the room was relatively small, there were good views and to my surprise, a TV in the bathroom. Okay so the quality on the TV wasn't so great but its a good try on their end to create amenities.

I also wandered down to the bar during the evening and was treated to some really great jazz singing by their performers for the evening. The bar area is very neatly taken care of and there usually aren't that many people (as there are nearby clubs with a lot more lively activity).

Finally, I want to commend this place for their Raid the Pantry service. I don't think I've ever been inside a hotel where you could do something of that sort and grab food whenever you want between set hours. Room service usually costs money -- in this instance, its treat yourself room service, but included in the cost? Now that's a great idea.

The historic Hotel De Anza opened its doors to the public during the heart of the Great Depression in 1931. This was an early "first class" Hotel for the future Capital of Silicon Valley. The original 10-story building was constructed in just one year and at a cost of ~$500,000. That's 1/20th of the the 1990s restoration cost. The Hotel itself is named for the explorer who first discovered the Santa Clara Valley in 1776, Juan Bautista de Anza.

I love Hotels with history, and with the nicely restored architecture and artistic flourishes, this place is a beauty. It's a modern hotel too, with comfortable and nicely appointed rooms, a classy Lobby, a pantry you can raid for snacks, the cool neon sign outside, and decent specials if you know the way to San Jose. Great customer service too and a worthy alternative to the nearby Fairmont.

I actually had a prom pre-party here and it was nice to have somewhere to crash after hours when the am's are really taking a toll on your eye lids.

The hotel does look gorgeous and IMO seems more classy in a classic historical aspect than the Fairmont practically next door. I love the lobby, the lobby bar, and it's a good casual hang out even if you are not staying in the hotel.

The rooms could be old unless you get an upgrade, the suites on top have an amazing view of not just the city but a little beyond since downtown San Jose is not home to many high rises. Service is friendly and staff is patient, especially because they know what you're here for!
