Great place! So spacious! The only downfall is getting to the reception. We had to ask a few times & be directed to the correct floor.

There was no EV charging available for WHY guest and parking was $40 without charging although there were Chargepoints in the garage. They had fees for everything extra like if you wanted to check-in early it was $50 per hour and that just felt like it was overpriced where in a regular hotel if the room was ready they would let you check-in with no additional charge. The elevator and card key system was not working well with the parking garage and an alarm sounded every time you went in or out of the garage

This place felt more like home than your typical hotel experience. The availability of the kitchen and laundry made my stay in the in city far more pleasant than I expected. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

Liked: Cleanliness
Unit was nice and clean when we arrived. Some of the lighting fixtures didn't work (bedside lamp and bathroom light) but overall it fits the need. Staff were very helpful, both Placemaker and the building front door staff. The phone app didn't work to unlock, but the card keys worked great on front door and unit door.

Nice, Hi-tech Hotel
The WhyHotel was great in that the room was spacious, clean, and quiet. The only negative that I had was that the TV required that I subscribe to streaming services -- something I don't currently do. Otherwise, the hotel was great.

WhyHotel when you just need a place to stay....
Overall is was a great experience. I don't recall getting communicaiton about parking but I figured it out and was told by another guest to call and get a space assigned. The key app worked great with all the readers except my room. I got a key card so I didn't have to fumble around with it. Otherwise, it was two blocks from San Jose State and we could easily walk to campus and visit our son.

This property was great. Felt safe and the apartment style was amazing for my whole family. It’s in a noisy part of town and the night life of San Jose got loud on a Saturday night. That would be the only negative.
