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

I was here recently for a family wedding. We were able to have the reception with dinner, entertainment with live band, great bar, restful sleep and breakfast the next morning--all without leaving the building. 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..

From the valet to the maid the service has been excellent at the Fairmont. I arrived for my conference several hours early and the front desk crew was able to to get me in to the room early (this was 7/22 Stefani, Kevin, and another wonderful young lady were on duty). The concierge was friendly and accommodation. Eliza in the... More

I stayed a night and I was disappointed. Good - Nice size room. Courteous staff. Quick service with valet parking. Bad - Serious problem to the attention to detail. Front desk - I asked to have the receipt emailed to me. I gave my email address and the staff confirmed it's done. I never received it. When I called a... More

Great food, service, and great rooms! I had a great time and always try to at the Fairmont when and where I can. I can rest assured of everything being in order when I arrive. President's Club allows ease of check-in and it is quick!

Loved the hotel, location, staff, we had an issue at check in but they totally made it right by upgrading us to a suite free of charge, along with breakfast vouchers and a late checkout the next day. Just what I imagined a top notch Hotel like the Fairmont would do. We relaxed at the pool the next day due... More
