Wedding Trip

Hotel is a blend of the "classic" and the "new"giving you a choice to stay in the older established building or the newer addition. Win-Win either way

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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

Nice downtown hotel

The Fairmont downtown San Jose is a nice hotel for a short weekend getaway. Friendly staff that was very helpful and always willing to answer any questions. Location is central with many restaurants and museums within walking distance. If you do plan to eat a meal at a nearby restaurant be sure to go early, many do not have late night hours. Tip: if visiting on weekend, street parking is cheap and free all day Sunday's and after 6pm. Way cheaper than Valet. Overall a great stay and will stay again.

Comfortable room

My two kids and myself really enjoyed the room amenities and comfort. Great location being that it is right next to the outdoor skating rink and Christmas in the Park

Very happy

Our room was very spacious, and the staff helpful and friendly. Fine dining at The Grill. Centrally located, we were able to walk to all of downtown, and an easy cab ride to airport and HP Pavilion.

Room service terrible

The room and amenity were awesome. However, service was terrible. I am an avid coffee drinker. My room was missing a coffee maker so I requested for one. 1.5 hours later, I fell asleep waiting for it and I still didn't get the maker. I requested it the next day again and they finally got it to me. Completely ridiculous!
