I recently stayed at this hotel for business for three nights. The hotel itself was nice and clean. The room was large and comfortable. Not much to complain about regarding comfort for the stay. However, the front staff was horrible and the reservation, check-in, and check-out process was a nightmare. My company paid for my room with the reservation but...

Nice view from the 18th floor and the holiday village was just out front in Quadelupe Park. Ice skating for those that dare, we chose dinner, drinks and watching. A nice, fun, relaxing evening and the bar hotel was a good time.

I had a three night stay for business. The positives are good central location, spacious rooms and nice fitness facility. Negatives are expensive valet and WiFi. Also I was not impressed by the service, one day they forgot to make the room, the way from the tap was not clean and when I arrived the main light did not function....

I had the pleasure of staying at the Fairmont San Jose recently whilst attending a conference for work.

Most people go directly to San Francisco, but sometimes, San Jose is a must. The Fairmont San Jose service lives up to the expectation you have for other Fairmont hotels. the entry and lobby are beautiful. The staff is very courteous. The rooms, sadly, are very dated and in need of a massive update. Still, rooms are clean and spacious....

The hotel is nice with big & spacious rooms. There are lots of restaurants nearby so one can easily walk around. Even the bus/VTA station is just at the back exit of the hotel. I overall liked my stay & wasnt disappointed by any thing.

Huge rooms, GREAT towels, great bed, big TV, coffee in the room. What more do you need? Only item that left me wondering about the hotel was the shower head? The shower was fine but could have been better with a better head. I didn't get that they didn't change that?

The San Jose Fairmont hotel is a terrific hotel for any stay in San Jose. The rooms are spacious and very clean with plush towels, comfortable beds, terrific showers and all the amenities.

I booked this hotel on a business trip-all the "standard" business hotels were booked, So I thought-this will be a great place to stay, even though it was pricey at $365 for one night.

Rooms are very spacious and decently furnished (a bit 90ish tough...). Good selection of places to eat nearby, and the restaurant on the ground floor is very decent. I would recommend a room on high floors, as it can be a bit noisy outside.
