Valet Parking was terrible (+30 mins to pickup) and took so long to pick our car up causing us being late to a wedding. When we asked where our car was and the reason it was taking so long, the guy said it was at some parking lot "x" and just walked away. We felt really mistreated even after telling... More

Fairmont was a very beautiful place to stay and is also convenient because it was near a lot of businesses and amazing museums and the cathedral of San Jose. I would love to stay there again! And I would definitely recommend THE FAIRMONT!

We were attending my 40th year class reunion and the Fairmont was the perfect place for a get away weekend. It was close to both events with easy access to the freeways and light rail. The room was wonderful and was located on the same floor as the pool which I used every morning. The evening band in the lobby... More

Stayed one night whilst on bus trip to San Francisco. Hotel is very large and staff was attentive and polite. Room was large with great beds. Huge mini bar if that is your thing. Walls not too thin so no outside noise at all. There are eating places and a good supermarket behind the hotel.

To begin, the hotel itself it beautiful. The standard rooms are spacious enough. The bathrooms are lovely, marble counter and floors. The staff was adequately friendly and the entire hotel is very clean and polished. The plaza in between the two building is pretty with restaurants close by if you do not feel like walking very far. You can have... More

Impressive lobby,Lots of guests from the tech industry nearby. Nice (expensive) sushi bar. Breakfast good but fairly slow if you don't use the buffet. Valet parking not cheap but much faster than past stays.On the other hand - large room with very little furniture- looks like someone stole most of the furniture! Sink was clogged. Few outlets. Gym OK, nice... More

We spent two nights here in the middle of our vacation. The room was luxurious and hard to leave behind, though the A/C was noisy at night. We also liked being at the centre of things and enjoyed the beautiful pool facilities. Two drinks in the lobby cost more than many of the meals we had enjoyed on our trip... More

Was in town for business, this was a class act. My room was fantastic, large bathroom, large room, great desk and chair. I agree with others that the room could use a freshening up. The Bathroom was spotless, the shower amazing, however, it was "old school" tiled from the 80's. Still while oldish, the shower itself had great pressure and... More

A great "classy" hotel in the heart of San Jose . . . . near everything. The 'place to be' when staying in San Jose. An excellent, efficient, and courteous staff.
