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.

  • 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.

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.

Great downtown hotel

We needed a hotel close to the airport and the baby shower we were attending. The Fairmont fit the bill perfectly. The hotel is imposing and grand, the rooms are good sized, the service is impeccable, and the value for money is very hard to beat. We made a good choice.

One of the nicest hotels I've ever been to.

This Hotel was plush, and absolutely ultra clean. The room was spacious and we'll stocked with drinks and snacks. The bathroom had plenty of towels and robes. I have to say again, the absolute cleanest and most comfortable hotel. Sure it costs 20 whole dollars more than some if the other hotels next door but it is still extremely affordable and so worth it.

If you want an absolutely amazing breakfast ask the concierge for directions to Flames. It's just a short walk away and totally worth it. They have the best staff and great prices.

Most Romantic Valentines EVER!!!

The valet parking staff were so pleasant when I arrived at the hotel. Followed by the quick check in and friendly staff. My partner guided me through the beautiful halls of the hotel to the clean and romantic room. As I walked in, the bed had amazing rose pedals in a heart shape on the bed, accented with a dozen long stem roses next to the bed. It didn't stop there.....to my delight there was a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to delight me to the fullest. The room was beyond my imagination. Followed by an incredible concert located at the SAP center which was close to the hotel. Upon our return we were able to enjoy a live band and a DJ in the Lounge for some dancing. This was by far the best Valentines Day I have ever experienced!!! Thank you.

Weekend getaway

The staff was helpful from the very beginning. Everyone had a smile on their face and were there to answer any questions that we had. The hotel was beautiful with many good dining options both in the hotel and in the hotels neighborhood. We ended up ordering room service and it was very quick and delicious. I really enjoyed out stay and I'm sure that when we visit San Jose again we will stay here.

Great getaway location & value

The Fairmont is settled right next to lightrail lines, and amongst a large number of restaurants and theaters. You can park you car for the weekend and enjoy yourself a great deal with dining and art. But you don't have to pay the premium prices of San Francisco. The rooms are nice and spacious. Ours have always been very clean. If you get an upgrade to a view room, you won't be disappointed facing any direction.

Try out the Whispers Cafe on a Sunday morning. Skip the stuffy Fairmont buffet and get the fantastic service and tasty grub at Whispers.

Birthday stay @ the Fairmont S.J.

Decided to spend my Birhtday at the Fairmont with my wife. The Hotel was packed with people & kids because of various Holiday parties booked @ the hotel and "X-Mas in the Park" going on right in front and to the sides of the hotel. After check in went to the lobby bar for a snack & a drink only to find it also packed, BUT, had fast service and some good sushi also. The room was spacious, if a bit spartan. There is room for love seat & table, and it would have been a welcome addition to have a place to sit. All in all for the price and the "spure of the moment" reservation during a busy holiday season, in was great.
