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

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.

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.

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.

Five Stars ...

Landed here after a concert up the hill in Saratoga rather than drive back to Sacramento. Have stayed here before in the distant past and the EXCELLENT rooms and service continue to this day. Look for last minute specials. Our room was superior in EVERY way to any thing offered in the same price range as from the 2-3 star hotels! Will be back ... and try out the Mountain Winery for a great concert venue!!!
