Great stay and we would stay again. Room was nice, although we requested a crib upon arrival as we knew we would be arriving late. It was not in the room and took until 10:20PM for it to arrive. Once it arrived the staff was great and it was a full size crib which is very nice.

When booking the hotel, I specified to be in the 'main lobby' as tipped on by other reviewers. Perhaps because I arrived late in the day, but they put me in their other building, which means you have to walk outside and across the street if you want to use any amenities like the swimming pool or gym. This is... More

This is a tough review to write, so I'll try to break it down as best I can. I'd say overall I'd give the Fairmont 3.5/5 stars, so I'm rounding to 4. PROS: .Beautiful hotel. We paid $159/n for our conference rate, and I've heard the standard rooms normally go for $300-400 a night. .The rooms were fantastic - large... More

Typical Fairmont, great lobby, awesome front desk, average rooms and service. Price does not justify quality. Not a good value for price. Attention to detail is far short of comparable hotels in these price range.

Great experience! Staff was very friendly. Walking distance of bars and restaurants. Or just check out some of the restaurants INSIDE the hotel! Bar was great. Especially HUGE tv projector above bar where I caught some of the Giants game.

An exceptional facility with all the comforts of home and a staff that is courteous and professional. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Great location, food, and service. The staff is always present when you need them and the event facilities are among the best. This hotel can handle anything and their desire to go beyond is magnificent!

The Fairmont San Jose was a beautiful hotel located in convenient downtown San Jose. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner that was served for our conference was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel stay!

The Fairmont is well situated in downtown San Jose. The lobby area is extremely lively and the common areas of the hotel are very well maintained. That being said, for the price paid, I would have expected a higher quality hotel. When one is traveling for business, the main needs are a good bed for a good night's rest, reliable... More
