San Jose is the unofficial capital of the unofficial region known as Silicon Valley. And, in answer to Dionne Warwick’s 1968 question: ‘Do you know the way to San Jose?’, eBay, Cisco Systems and Adobe definitely do - this is where they have their headquarters, among other top techs.. As you might guess this is a relatively affluent city with some lovely architecture, numerous great bars, restaurant and boutiques, and a very rich cultural calendar. They also get a lot of sunny weather, have a great farmer’s market, several extremely good libraries, some impressive galleries and several good museums. It’s just kind of in the shadow of San Francisco… The best places to stay in San Jose depend on why you’re visiting, but our Guru’s list of the best places to stay in San Jose concentrates on the downtown area.
