San Jose trip

Pulled up and valet parking was excellent, easy check-in right away! Great lobby, great Chinese dining inside and very convenient! The view from our room was excellent over-seeing downtown San Jose. The restrooms were also very spacious and the room was a great size! The spa area was enjoyed dearly by my wife. I plan to stay here again in the near future, everything was excellent :)

Great Stay... perfect for the holidays

With a grande Holiday in the park right outside it's doors, the fairmont hotel is a perfect home away from home for the holidays. Ice skating, fun food and rides for all ages is a great environment for the whole family. The rooms are spacious and the staff is superb. This hotel is highly recommended.

Great hotel for locals too

What a neat hotel to just get away from everyday life and stay at! We are locals and love this property for special occasions like birthdays. It is easy walking distance to Original Joes or Il Fornaio restaurants. The staff are so helpful and happy looking!! Their Fountain restaurant now offers gluten-free food, and other special dietary selections....great idea!

Perfect getaway for hubby and me

My husband and I went to Improv to see Edwin San Juan and stayed overnight at the Fairmont. This hotel has the perfect location. Many nearby restaurants that you can walk to. We were able to walk to the Improv as well so that was a treat. Hotel was clean with many friendly staff. The hotel itself also had plenty of restaurants to enjoy from. We had Sunday brunch but that was just okay. Not too many selections and food was not that great for the price. Will definitely return here again.

A wonderful night at the Fairmont, San Jose

It was very convenient to walk blocks away to the HP pavilion, museum, shops and restaurants. Great atmosphere and location. The staff were wonderful and made us feel at home. My kids loved the heated pool. It was a nice get away not too far from home.

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. :)
