San Jose Garden Airport
1740 N. First Street.
San Jose, CA 95112
This is the host hotel for WrestleCon 2015! Stay here for the convention plus easy access to all the other events in San Jose!
The hotel is ideally located centrally between San Jose and Santa Clara and the VTA light rail line runs to the front door of the hotel (stop is called METRO). Literally you jump on the VTA and go 5 minutes north to Santa Clara (Levi Stadium and Convention Center both have VTA stops) or south to San Jose (door to door between HOF and RAW events held at the SAP Center). For those of you that fly in to San Jose, they also have a free shuttle service to/from the hotel. If you fly into San Francisco, simply take the CalTrain South to Santa Clara or San Jose and then jump on a VTA line to the front door of the hotel and avoid the fees of a taxi.
We’re not knocking the choice to bring Mania to Santa Clara/San Jose, but you better take a day trip or more to San Francisco at some point, and you certainly don’t want to try to drive the 101 and risk getting stuck in 4 hours of traffic. From this hotel, you jump on the VTA at Metro, connect/change at the CalTrain station and roll right into San Francisco in about one hour hassle free. Seriously, everybody should budget an extra day this week to explore San Francisco because it blows away anything else in the area in terms of things to see.
We understand that a hotel during Mania week is base camp to shower, sleep, and store all the merch you buy. The San Jose Garden Hotel fits the bill as being potentially the ideally located hotel to get ANYWHERE you’re headed that week. If you also happen to be attending WrestleCon, we’re TAKING OVER the hotel that week.
This is our second hotel for WrestleCon 2015! Just a short 0.7-mile distance from our WrestleCon event center.
