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.
We loved the staff , restaurant , feel & vibe of the hotel. Older yes , but clean and safe and located in the heart of Old downtown San Jose. Lots of great shops to hunt for treasures , great Mexican artifacts , many souvenir shops with lots of choices for meals or places to hang out. We didn't have any strong dislikes at all.
Wifi Staff Parking AC food location The ad said that it included breakfast but it only included coffee and rolls. This was not clear.
Good location. Downtown is walking distance. A/C worked well. TV had some English language channels. Friendly staff. I had to park on the street the first night. The 2nd night they let me park in the gated driveway. I could never get the wifi signal in my room to work, I had to go down to the restaurant lobby to get online. The blinds were not very dark so you wake up with the sun.
Close to arts district Blinds were poorly placed and let in a lot of daylight.
