1 Bed Short

We booked a double double. When we checked in they had no double doubles, so they said they would bring us a roll away. We finally got the roll away brought to our room around 3:00 am after contacting the front desk many times.

Nice weekend away from the SF fog

I found this to be a great weekend away from San Francisco and it's miserable summer. The hotel was great though the prices at the restaurants, caffes and shops was more in the Ritz Carlton range yet the hotel was more like an Omni. The front desk staff were great and the pool was perfect, just too many kids.

San Jose trip

Pulled up and valet parking was excellent, easy check-in right away! Great lobby, great Chinese dining inside and very convenient! The view from our room was excellent over-seeing downtown San Jose. The restrooms were also very spacious and the room was a great size! The spa area was enjoyed dearly by my wife. I plan to stay here again in the near future, everything was excellent :)

Great Stay... perfect for the holidays

With a grande Holiday in the park right outside it's doors, the fairmont hotel is a perfect home away from home for the holidays. Ice skating, fun food and rides for all ages is a great environment for the whole family. The rooms are spacious and the staff is superb. This hotel is highly recommended.

San Jose's Finest

I attended the 22nd Annual Jazz Fests, one of the largest in the world. The Fairmont was located at center stage. I was there for 3 days, two nights and every moment was enjoyable and more!! All the amenities, from food services to luxurious in-room robes added to the experience. My kids and grand kids came by to join me at pool side and we had a blast! Everything was in walking distance from restaurants, both 5 star and mom and pop; grocery store, night life, public transit - taking the VTA Light Rail was easy and fun. I will be back with friends!!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

From fine dining to dancing to stand-up comedy to high tech (as in the High Tech Museum) as well as art and culture - is all within blocks - hard not to have a great time!
