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!

Excellent Location for Downtown Business

Location proved ideal for the downtown business I conducted. Step right outside the door to lightrail service, if needed, and several restaurants. Also close to convention related business. Be prepared for the typical high cost for valet parking. Other options are limited.

Great staff, good location, a few rough edges

A great stay. A few things felt a little outdated even though a significant amount of new work has been done. Great friendly and available staff.

Great Getaway

Very nice, pleasant helpful staff. Wasn't aware of the hotel parking charges daily, a bit expensive.
