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.

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.

Property features

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. Afternoon tea is served from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the lobby, but visitors who want something stronger can find more than 500 cocktail options in the Lobby Lounge or tropical drinks at Bamboo Lounge. Business travelers appreciate the round-the-clock business center.

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.

Don't go to the McCommicks next to the hotel, you'll get more value eating at Outback than there and at half the price.

Close to the Convention Center

Our room was way better than what we expected. We wanted to be close to the convention center and this hotel was perfect for that. It was just a short walk to get there. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Exceptional

Really enjoyed my stay, can't wait to go back to this establishment, I had so much fun, and it was wonderful walking right outside to the Jazz festival, all of the fun is centered around this hotel, can't get any better than that. And the room was exceptional, large, roomy, clean and the bed was quite comfortable, the staff was over the top...
