TV is lame, and no free wireless or parking

NBA playoffs were on, but tv is hard to navigate. No free premium channels. No guide on screen to see what's on!! No vents in bathroom, and room not that clean. Location was great, staff(valet) were quick and nice. Coffee machine a joke.

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.

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.

One night stay after a train ride from San Diego. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. The only negative is there was no refrigerator for our use.

Good location, average room

great location in downtown. Phone in our room didn't work (can't call front desk or room service), there was no coffee maker (told front desk at checkout and they said all rooms should have it), and there is no light switch at bedside (you have to go turn off each lights then go back to bed. Most 4-star hotels have a switch by bedside that turns off all lights).

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.
