January 8, 2022 A 6-story hotel on Winchester Boulevard may win the approval of the San Jose City Council next week, despite strong disapproval from residents in the neighborhood.

On Tuesday, councilmembers will vote on whether to rezone the land from residential to commercial development and approve the developer’s plans to build a 119-room hotel on a 0.69-acre parcel at 1212 S. Winchester Blvd. If approved, the hotel will replace two commercial buildings that used to be single-story houses. The property is owned by local San Jose dentist Dr. Adam Askari who is working with Henry Cord of Cord Associates to develop the property.
