Excellent stay, very professional and courteous, would recommend anyone new to the area try this hotel. Food district was few blocks away, the valet staff gave excellent directions and very helpful with recommendations for a large group.

The location was great for this Fairmont. It's perfectly located to the SAP center and to restaurants and bars. The only problem was the rooms are a little run down for the price. If they did a remodel, it would be great

Save your money unless you are doing the whole luxury spa package it isn't worth it. Lobby was as loud as a nightclub, there was no quiet place to check in, let alone relax and chat with friends other than your room. You have to valet as there isn't any other obvious parking option. Room service was slow and disappointing.... More

This is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed at! The room is spacious and very comfortable, quiet and clean. I cannot comment on the restaurants/bar or food because I didn't go to these places. I will however say that there are so many different places to eat that are nearby, within walking distance. I love the location because... More

It was very convenient, felt safe, clean, and the staff was very attentive. Had a great weekend and would like to go back to explore the... More

The stay was nice. What got me going was that the buffet for breakfast was completely over priced and not very good. The room was just adequate and not worth the money. I will be staying someplace else when I go to SJ again in Nov..
