Couldn't of asked for a more complete package with great food, guest service, and a relaxing/comfortable venue for my business meetings. The rooms are quiet and roomy. The bar appears to be small but its very accommodating.

A hotel for anyone who loves history
Reviewed 1 month ago

This place is seeped in history and the grounds are stunning. The hotel is well priced and rooms could use a little TLC but I come for the atmosphere.

There’s restaurants and bars on the premises and its convenient to most of San Jose’s sites.

I’ve been staying here about once a month for the past year for work trips.

What I love most is the family stories and history of the place. And my most recent stay confirmed that it’s haunted - but have no fear, these ghosts are very positive. I met three amazing spirits on my last stay. I got these stories using a flashlight and yes(on) or no(off) questioning:

1. Palm Patio- A man claiming he’d lived there during the 60s when it was a rooming house, confirmed he was not the owner, he loved the original decor over the current decor, and he said he was watching over the place.

2. Jay Orley Parlor- A boy who claimed to be the son of Mary Hayes (he identified a portrait in the Jay Orley Parlor as Mary but was not named Everis or Jay - Mary’s two grown sons). I looked up a picture of Mary afterwards and sure enough the spirit was right, it was Mary’s portrait. Mary did have one son who died at age 4. Stories go that she claimed he stayed with her all her life. (Pic of portrait posted with the review)

3. Palm Patio- Single woman in her 40s, without children, visited the mansion in the 1940s around the time a president visited (trying to verify this) but didn’t meet the pres. She was familiar with the Hayes family history but had never met them. She loves nature and visits the site because it’s so beautiful. She enjoys the weddings and parties hosted there and likes to see people enjoying the property as much as she does.

Not bad....

Liked the historical nostalgia and history of the mansion, however a little too musty and geographically isolated. Service was fine but unfortunately not enough going on to gather data. At the end of the day maybe just not my style, I felt like I was living in an antique store meets B&B? Check it out if you like historical B&B’s and have a rental car.

Not worth paying £300

It was paid for by my company so it was ok to stay but I wouldn’t stay at my own cost. Poorly staffed and poor standard of service. Lack of English speaking staff (it’s in the US!) and lack of staff really. No one came by pool for whole afternoon and when they did, they didn’t even clean the used towels lying around despite sign of ‘please put away towel in the basket’. It’s by no mean ‘luxury’ as they sell it and I’d pay £150 max to stay there. Food is so so. Marriott hotels are better for food and service. Nice setting with lovely building and sunny pool but very unfortunate.

Gorgeous Mansion

I have lived in Northern California for most of my life. I came up just this one particular weekend for my daughter's baby shower. I stumbled upon this location and it is gorgeous! The only challenges I had were that the front desk gave me the wrong Wi-Fi codes and there was no 'Do Not Disturb' sign for the room. Other than that great location! I would definitely love to come back. I had an early flight back to Southern California and the front desk rep, Bernadette, said she wasn't able to print out a statement for me. And that the printer would be available later today. I also asked her for other information and she said she was not able to do it either. Hmm. Whether or not that is true or not, I really don't know. She was polite but not very helpful.
