The room was wonderful, really a studio apartment without a kitchen. Queen bed, living room area, all tile bath with sunken shower, and garden patio overlooking the courtyard complete with string hammock and cafe table for two. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious and relatively reasonably priced. My wife also liked the new, since December 2011, jewelry store off the lobby, which she says has some very unique items.
The location was excellent, you can walk right out to the main square and walk around to all the shops and restaurants! The hotel staff were all really friendly. it's a very cute boutique hotel, nice outdoor setting IE the pool, loungers and tables. We did not like our room. it really needs a good cleaning - the floors in particular and the grout in the shower is gross!! All of our window screens did not close properly thus the first night I was eaten alive by Mosquitos!!!!! AC did not work.
Everything No complaints
Quaint and quiet NothingIt was perfect
Hotel is located in center of town and is an oasis in the bustle of the activities taking place in the San Jose art district and in the zocolo outside the hotel's front door. Staff are exceptional; pool, restaurant & bar are perfect for small hotel. The less expensive room we got this year shared a balcony with adjacent room and with only a partial bamboo screen between the two, it was a bit uncomfortable for much use.
I stayed at the Tropicana on 12/10/16 after a week long yoga retreat at another resort. I selected the Tropicana based on the proximity to local flavor and the reviews. The Tropicana did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a good value for the price. The hotel was also within walking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping. I also felt safew there as a single female traveler. NothInglewood.
