SJC - Four Points, Residence Inn or Fairfield Inn

Looking to use a Cat. 4 (25,000 pts) cert for an overnight stay at SJC. Very early flight out the next morning so free breakfast doesn’t matter as I’ll be gone by 5:30am.

Choices are Four Points, Residence Inn or Fairfield Inn. I’m leaning towards the Four Points but any opinions on which is the least dumpy of the three options?

Four Points or Fairfield. You only earn 1/2 at Residence.

Iím using a Cat. 4 free night cert so earning doesnít matter. Does that change your vote?

Haven't stayed at the Residence Inn, but I've stayed at the other two. I'd give Fairfield a slight edge between the two. Four Points and Fairfield are both on the dated side -- the Fairfield is a retrofitted Howard Johnson Motor Lodge. Both are quiet. Four Points has conference rooms on at least one of the upper floors near the hotel rooms, which I think is a bad practice for security but otherwise did not affect my stay. The Residence Inn is newer than the other two.
