Not great, not terrible...

This hotel is OK, nothing more. Check in efficient, and we were upgraded to an executive room thanks to our IHG platinum membership. Room was spacious with good views of the city, however furnishings were dated. Shower tiles had chips in, and hot water took 2-3 minutes to arrive. Executive floors have use of a lounge with more good views and a small breakfast selection with obliging waiter. There is a fairly basic gym, but no air conditioning leading to quite a tough workout. We did not try the main restaurant. Would recommend investment in this hotel so that it is able to keep up with the standards required of the Holiday Inn brand.

So so

Has everthing you need but the hotel is a bit old and dated. The walls and furniture were worn down. The TV picture was all blurry. Some things were rusting. However: Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Convenient location in downtown San Jose. Not the greatest. Not the worst.

It was ok for a night in San Jose.

It was ok and somewhere to simply shower, eat and sleep. The hotel once upon a time would have been quite luxurious. It isn't anymore. We ate in the Sports Bar and the beers and food were good. It was reasonably busy with only one man behind the bar. That guy was flat out - he did not stop for the few hours we were there and was constantly doing 3 things at once. The room and bathroom was reasonably dated but functional. Breakfast was ok. I can't comment on the location as we used the hotel only for a night between arriving in Costa Rica and heading to La Fortuna the next day. It served its purpose.

Excellent service and prime location!

The hotel is across the street from Parque Morizan making the setting lovely as well as the views of the city. Rooms overlook the park and city and fun to watch all the buses and bustling city streets below. It is right downtown close to everything including National Museum of Costa Rica & Teatro Nacional. Exceptional service in bars and restaurant—very attentive staff! Hotel is very well maintained and nicely decorated. Lovely lobby.

Not again

Stayed for one night before our 9 days of touring the country and whilst the location is great for exploring San Jose I felt uneasy with someone attempting to enter our room late evening and returned from a good choice of buffet breakfast to our suitcase open I wouldn’t want to return to this hotel again. Hotel and room was clean but bathroom dated.
