Our room is on the 24th floor (26-floor Marriott right downtown San Jose), and we have large windows with views of the city looking northward and eastward. It's gorgeous at night, and the kids loved looking out the window. JP would raise his little arms to any of us adults so that we would pick him up and take him to the window sill where he could stand and look at all the lights, cars and people below. As you can see in the photo above, there is plenty of room on the sill so that JJ could sit on it.
You KNOW how I love playing with night lights! Couldn't resist .......San Jose city lights from our hotel room window.
There's a lovely little park directly north of the hotel, and these water "fountains" in the park provide fun and interest.
By the way, the Scotty's Seafood Restaurant in the background is within walking distance of our hotel, and they serve the most delicious almond-crusted sea bass I've ever had!
