I was very impressed with my room at the Fairmont-- it was a queen bed but the room was spacious, with a great view of downtown San Jose and the mountains behind, and well decorated. I loved the light carpet (no stains) and tasteful furniture, as well as the bathroom with separate dressing area, bathtub, and shower. Everything smelled good... More

I have stayed in many Fairmont Hotels around the world and the one at San Jose has been the worst. The service is fine and so is the food but from my experience here I would have been better off at a Travelodge. I reserved a 1 bedroom King suite which was in the south tower. When I got in... More

We stayed here recently for an evening and found the location great. There is a walkable down town area with easy access to museums, theaters, and the convention center. We opted for the upgraded room given we were a family of 4. Room was spacious and redone- with the exception of the shower. Water pressure was a significant issue (think... More

Went there for my son's 10th B'day and the experience was exceptional. The concierge arranged for a special cake for my son and it was AMAZING. I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Fairmont.

Recently stayed in this hotel again and had a tower room, MUCH nicer, newer rooms and fixtures. You have to cross a walk way, but the elevators are key accessed, so the security is good, quiet rooms, and a nice large size. Area is great for restaurants and bars and coffee bars. Even a grocery store near by. Great location,... More

I was on a business trip, but I loved it. Great room (a little old), great staff. Amazon packages were stored for me. Breakfast a bit expensive - $ 30 with Tipping. I recommend it for short period of time on business.

Great hotel for business. It has everything (ambiance, service, food, drink, comfort, good beds, friendly staff, etc...). It's the second time in 2 years that I've stayed there for a whole week. Overall it was a great experience!

My company hosts their annual sales kick off here annually. I enjoy the hotel and meeting space. Good work out facilities and a nice spa. It is a great location and close to great restaurants in easy walking distance.

This hotel is great, nice large rooms, great views of the city. The staff is super friendly and during Christmas they have a great setup. This hotel also has a very nice workout facility, and a step above the typical workout rooms at most hotels in the area. Would highly recommend for business or pleasure.

This is my first stay at a Fairmont hotel, but I was impressed. My mom sister and I were upgraded to a bigger room. We were in room 1080. The room was very spacious and comfortable! I would not hesitate to stay at The Fairmont San Jose again!
