Airport hotels are usually the preferred lodgings chosen by travelers; especially regular business travelers. With Silicon Valley nearby, the San Jose International Airport (SJC) in has no lack of traffic from such commuters. Hotels in San Jose, California, vary in both rating and proximity to the airport.


The nearest hotels are less than two miles from the San Jose Airport SJC). The closest is the Days Inn Airport; which is only one mile away, right through the airport’s Parkway exit. Staybridge Suites San Jose at Crane Court and the Holiday Inn Express at 4th Street are next closest. Shuttle service is available for the latter two hotels; which is usually convenient for frequent business travelers. All three hotels hold two-star ratings.


This category refers to hotels that are located four to five miles away from the San Jose International Airport. The actual farthest is another branch of Staybridge Suites in Milpitas followed by Americas Best Value Inn; which is also in the same area, and the Hotel De Anza at West Santa Clara Street. The latter is rated as a four-star hotel. It contains approximately 100 rooms, including luxury suites labeled as junior, parlor and penthouse.

Highest Rated

Besides the Hotel De Anza, the only other place among those considered to be San Jose airport hotels with four-star rating is the Crown Plaza Hotel. It is at Almaden Boulevard, approximately three miles from the airport. The Crown Plaza has on-site fitness center facilities, housekeeping and laundry services. The rooms are divided into three tiers: regular, executive club, and suites.


For travelers wanting to strike a balance between price, amenities and distance from the airport, a couple of hotels given three-star ratings are within three miles from the SJC (San Jose Airport). The Radisson Hotel, on Fourth Street for example is almost as near as the Holiday Inn Express, but offers a wider range of room types and facilities. Another example is Homestead Studio Suites which is about three miles away from the airport. The main selling point is the studio suite rooms, which have fully equipped kitchens and are convenient for extended stays.
