San Jose Hotels
“After a long day of sightseeing or work, pamper yourself…at one of the affordable luxury hotels in San Jose.”
In the 1950s, a number of communities and towns were annexed by the city of San Jose, California, creating a large metropolitan area near Silicon Valley. A mecca for high-tech businesses, the area also boasts historic charm, such as Mission Santa Clara de Asis which was founded in 1777 and is the historic center of Santa Clara Valley. The downtown area boasts a thriving music scene, art galleries, theaters, and trendy restaurants. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, you can find comfortable, luxurious, and -- best of all -- cheap hotels in the San Jose area, including Wyndham Garden San Jose, San Jose Airport Inn, and Heritage Inn.
