A good location, secured, quiet and relaxed hotel. Easy access to restaurants and bars. Really enjoyed going to the bakery next door, very friendly and good croissant, almost every day. Enjoyed working out in the morning as well.

Nice hotel overall. Very comfy beds, super roomy, great bathrooms. We had a queen room facing the pool, but that was too noisy (kids having fun at the pool). We needed to go to bed pretty early so we asked to move to a non-pool facing room. We got a corner room (with amazing corner views!) and that was perfect.... More

close to the SAP convention center,which is very convenient. a happening place every night with live music, the lobby is quite small, is always busy, which makes it a challenge to get in and out of the hotel without bumping into someone.there should be a private hotel bridge between the north and south buildings. i noticed that people from the...

This hotel is in a great location and the lobby areas are nice. I stayed 4 nights. Rooms are decent. Here is what was not so nice. Lower rating is for pool and service issues below. I had an issue with the hotel pool which was overloaded with children. One had an accident in the pool which was very obvious... More

I usually travel using this hotel chain and it's always a wonderful experience. The Fairmont SJ is a typical business hotel where you have all the amenities you need. The open pool is very nice and relaxing, the fitness center is excellent and the main lobby is a nice place where you have live music every night and Friday/Saturday night... More

Terrific--my kids loved it and my husband and I really enjoyed the spacious room. Great beds!! Would stay again if in San Jose and wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else. Great service and excellent Sunday Brunch. The fountain restaurant was wonderful my kids loved it too.

Hotel room was noisy, with lots of nearby room door slams between 1 and 5 a.m.. Billing was not at the agreed-to rate. The front desk finally got it right after extended discussion and contract review.

Great suite and check in was great too . Parking thru valet which is separated from fairmont is not great but ok kinda high . The staff checking in was excellent and the accommodations they provided for free was pretty cool too.

Stayed for a few days here on business. I was very surprised when the hotel went into "lockdown" because of an VIP was arriving. I had to be searched and my bag scanned each time I came back to the hotel. None of the staff would tell me why (which I guess is a good thing). So I was pretty... More
