Came for a large convention. Hotel stay was pleasant. Rooms were spacious and the location was convenient. Hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. We had to leave a day early due to unexpected circumstances and the hotel did not charge us as we had anticipated. On a negative note, the room had a terrible odor and the shower was very...

Nice elegant hotel, with friendly personal close to a bakery with delicious pastries, near a Beautiful Church and a museum, I ask the front desk lady for the directions to the Airport and she kindly print the instructions for me and show me exactly how to turn on the street (because it is kind of tricky). Thank you.

We stayed at the Fairmont San Jose for a conference. This seems to be the bulk of their clientele, as when we dined downtown and told them where we were staying, we kept hearing “Oh, what convention are you here for?” Being here for a conference, we got conference rates. The posted rate for the nights we stayed was 3-4...

I have to watch my finances, so coming to San Jose for a convention held at the Fairmont and staying there for 6 days was a rare and much-loved treat. I felt like a queen.

Very nice hotel and would recommend to anyone visiting San Jose area. The Grill restaurant has an excellent menu but very expensive. There is plenty of other option in the surrounding area next to the hotel. Remember to sign up for the President Club so you can get free WIFI.

Fairmont is a well kept hotel, that is close to a lot of amenities, like the Dr. Martin Luther King's Library, which I visited. There are also lots of restaurants, to suit any palate, from Caribbean flavors to Asian, even the staple of the U.S. McDonald's. The room I stayed in was fantastic, and sleep very well indeed.
