My family loves this hotel. The pool is great! It is salt water so it doesn't burn the kids eyes. There is tons of tasty food nearby. This hotel is in the perfect location for families (many museums and park near by), it is also in the heart of night life, and also easy access to highways and airport without... More

I booked a social room block and was happy with the rate, given the great location and it being a *Fairmont*!! I'd recommend this hotel for any meeting/conference/social group or families vacationing.

simple, clean rooms (no frou-frou), comfy bed & pillows, nice salt pool (a bit chilly!), perfect base for SJ Jazz Fest (though lobby gets very crowded - but staff still does great job). Only thing missing is jacuzzi.

This was my third time staying at the Fairmont while on business. The first two times I stayed in the adjacent tower, however this time I stayed in the main building. As usual, I do my reviews by category, so skip to the part you care about most. Room: #455 (4th floor) First thing I noticed when I got to... More

Not recommended. Stayed in deluxe king suite in tower. Very inconvenient if you want to swim or do fitness. Room was dirty, smelly, and old. Outlets were broken off the wall and have to call maintenance to fix it. Wallpaper was torn and peeling off the wall. Not worth the price. Only location is good. None of the extra stuffs... More

We had a staycation at the Fairmont recently that coincided with the SJ Sharks Fitness Faceoff. The property was very nice and the person at the front desk was both warm and welcoming, even though we were just staying for one night (and got a great deal on Priceline). We ended up in one of the rooms in the newer... More

In San Jose for business and the conference was booked into the hotel. Basically everything worked, service was impeccable, and the staff very helpful and cheerful. The issues were a room that smelt as if it was an ashtray. A lingering smell of stale tobacco as soon as you opened the door. The electronic keys only worked 1/3 of the... More

The Fair,not in San Jose is a very comfortable, quiet and upscale hotel, right in the heart of San Jose. The location is perfect for enjoying the surroundings and safe to walk around. The security of the hotel was perfect. Quiet, clean rooms, and excellent, well-trained, professional staff.

We stayed at the Fairmont and it was truly fabulous. From the perfect location to the relaxing pool, I was very impressed with the Fairmont. The rooms were big, beautiful, and comfy. The location was perfect. We were within walking distance of almost everything we did, as well as many more attractions that were very close. The hotel bar had... More
