An outstanding experience. Friendly, helpful staff and a huge room to die for with fantastic view across to the hills.Only drawback for me was the location, there's just not much going on downtown. The atmosphere in the hotel was excellent though, with live music in the bar every night.

Enjoyed my stay. Hotel is clean and the staff is very nice. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Bed was comfortable. Conveniently located in San Jose. I would stay at the Fairmont again. However, the hotel is a little pricey.

I always stay at this hotel when in San Jose. Staff are excellent. Rooms a reasonable, but some in the main building are a little dated. Bathrooms could do with make over. Watch out for bar prices! These will put a dent in your pocket.

I have stayed in Fairmont properties across North America and this is definitely the most "fresh" feeling. The rooms are spacious and the amenities are lovely. I had the chance to visit the other business standard hotels in Downtown San Jose and this is by far the best choice in its class. Of special note is fabulously appointed gym -... More

I stayed here recently to join a technology conference at the adjacent McEnery convention center. The Faimont is superbly appointed and its central downtown position means there are plenty of dining and cultural options within a short walk of the lobby. My room was dignified and spacious, but everything was slightly overdue for a remodel. Breakfast is not included and... More

This hotel had the usual upscale spacious room, comfy bedding, and ridiculously numerous add-on fees for minibar and room service. All staff I encountered were very helpful and considerate. The heating/AC was quiet. However, there should always be a light blanket available along with a duvet, which is always too hot for me - I had to request one. And... More

To make a quick review I will not elaborate, but every part of my stay was sensational. My room was simply divine, I had a comfortable large bed, beautiful view, vanity space, and the bathroom was gorgeous and large and had many amenities. The service was wonderful by the staff, I was always treated with respect and was helped without... More

I stayed at the Fairmont on a business trip. The staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. The room was clean, quiet and well appointed. It is conveniently located in San Jose within an easy walk of the University, restaurants, shopping, etc.

Was there for a big conference so expected the price to be high. Room was comfortable apart from very noisy air-conditioning. We had to cross a pedestrianised street to an annex and use a key card to get in as there were no reception staff there. Breakfast was good quality but different waiters had different views on whether you could... More

We stayed here for a weekend Gala for my son's college senior class, so there was a huge dinner dance on the premises one evening. The room was clean, well-appointed, but a bit smallish. Bathroom was clean and good-sized. I am a member of the President's Club, which is supposed to afford one certain "perks," which unfortunately were never delivered.... More
