Style and substance add up to four-star luxury at San Jose hotel

Stately and opulent, this downtown hotel boasts all the grandeur one would expect from the Fairmont brand. A light-filled lobby greets guests for check-in, while impeccably decorated rooms welcome them into homey luxury. Property amenities include a full-service business center, fitness room, day spa and an array of dining options, from high-end seafood and steaks to Chinese cuisine.

Highlights:
  • Four on-site restaurants and two bars
  • Full-service day spa on premises
  • 24-hour business center

Rooms:

The Fairmont's handsomely appointed guest rooms and suites showcase contemporary decor, soothing neutral colors and high-end furnishings. Marble bathrooms with separate showers and bathtubs create a luxurious ambiance, and amenities such as bathrobes, mini-bars and Internet access (fees apply) make guests feel at home. Most rooms have views of either the Santa Cruz Mountains or San Jose skyline.

Entertainment options abound at the Fairmont. Tova Day Spa has an array of body, skin, hair and nail treatments, and the large fitness center is outfitted with top-of-the-line Precor and Cyber equipment, plus locker rooms with saunas and steam rooms. In addition to 24-hour room service, there are four on-site restaurants to curb cravings of all persuasions: The Fountain Restaurant, Pagoda, The Grill on the Alley and Mccormick and Schmick's.

Best hotel in the heart of downtown San Jose

My stay at the Fairmont San Jose Hotel was wonderful. The staff at the front desk let us check in early at 11am. The valet staff were quick and friendly as well. There are lots of good eateries and bars within walking distance of the hotel and that's what I really enjoyed about my stay. I recommend choosing the Fairmont San Jose to all of my family and friends.

San Pedro Square is the place to be. Blush Raw Bar Lounge has awesome cocktails and happy hour including $1 oysters. Market Beer Co has a great selection of beers. If you're in the mood for something sweet, check out Treatbot. They have ice cream made with quality ingredients and a bacon ice cream cone too. :)
