You'd never believe it, but I grew up in San Jose. Got out of there at 17 to go to college, and never looked back (until this year, oddly) b/c I was plain old allergic to the whole place. Well, now I'm facing my 20 year HS reunion at the end of the summer, which I'm sort of looking forward to (have been since my 10 year, which was actually held OUTside of SJ). They're having it at a downtown hotel, Hotel Montgomery. They have some sort of special rate there, and at the nearby Marriott. That's all well and good, but we (er, I) want more options! It's all pretty close to the SJ airport, yes? Quick cab ride? So I'm thinking of a closer-to-the-airport hotel that's a bit cheaper, so we have more money to play with (and stay longer). Does anyone have any suggestions on that? Or a nice downtown hotel that won't break the bank (ha ha, I know)? Or that's nice enough to be worth it? I've looked on tripadvisor, I've looked on a SJ tourism website, I've got all that covered. But I'd love some personal opinions! Does anyone have them on these subjects? And does anyone have anything good to say about 20 year reunions? Thanks in advance!
