I stayed at this hotel when I had a conference at the convention center in March. WOW. I was very surprised! Very clean, updated and a great location if you need to stay in the downtown area. Several restaurants within walking distance and a few museums in the area. The bathroom area was huge and spotless and the bed very... More

Upkeep of the rooms is fine but I always seem to get rooms with no shower or sink drainage. Why is this ONLY addressed if you complain? Is there no proactive maintenance on these things? Internet not the best especially for a hotel in San Jose/Silicon Valley. Room is noisy - can hear hallway noises - why are the room... More

At checkin for a weekend pleasure trip I was informed pool would be closed almost my entire stay. It would have been nice if they told me this before arrival so I could have booked elsewhere. I then confirmed at checkin that I was in a king room, this turned out not to be true. When I called down to... More

The Fairmont is in a great location in San Jose and the hotel is nice. The room was fairly clean although the grout in the shower could have been a little cleaner. The staff was very polite but the check-in desk staff could have been better informed. The day before check out, they left to confirm the schedule and then... More

A good stay. Hotel was clen and comfortable. My reservation requested that I be placed in the main building, but when I arrived I ended up in the ajoining tower. Not that big a deal except at night some shady characters hangout between the buildings so some people may feel a little unsafe going back and forth.

Convenient downtown San Jose location with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. We stayed here to visit our son at SJSU only a few blocks away. The staff was very professional and the room was clean but a little dated. The parking is a little expensive but you do get in-out privileges.
