Stayed over Saturday night with my mother-in-law after attending a bridal shower along the central coast. We both found the hotel staff to be very kind and helpful and our junior suite in the main building was spacious and comfortable.The rooftop pool offered beautiful views but it was a bit of a disaster area by the time we checked it...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 March 2017

I was participating in a recruitment event at one of our shows that was playing in San Jose, CA. I only spent one night at the Fairmont but enjoyed my stay very much. I booked the property on Hotwire and got a tremendous deal. The Fairmont is the only 4.5 Star hotel in downtown San Jose, so I was pretty...

This hotel should change its name to a Hilton as it is not a fairmont quality hotel. The first night we found a bug in the bed. We were in one of the best suites at this hotel (1476) and did not want to be down graded so all they did was change the sheets. Then we wanted to hang...

We decided for this Hotel, because it was recommended by the conference website. I got a room in the third floor with only a tiny window, which gave the room the impression of a basement room. Also, the way from the elevator to the room was labyrinth like, since the hotel safed on signs. From a Hotel at this cost...

From checking in to room service et al, the service was great! The staff is very welcoming, even in the midst of their busyness. The guest room was huge and offered a good view of the Sierra. The lifts were surprisingly fast and I did not have to wait for more than 10 seconds throughout my stay. In many instances,...

I recently returned from a two-night business stay. Convenient location in downtown San Jose and a short drive from the airport. Room was in the recently-renovated tower and access to the main building was not a hassle at all. Enjoyed the rooftop pool although there was limited food and drink service up there (maybe it's seasonal). Overall, a very good...

Very nice hotel in the heart of downtown close to shops and restaurants. I was only there for 1 night. I ate at the bar for dinner which was very good. I would skip the breakfast at the hotel, overpriced and not all that good.
