    Very nice place, staff us friendly and very helpful. First I got a room with some issues, the staff at the front desk changed me to another great room immediately. Location is good and I will be back.

    Great pool and a hotel that thrives in its opulence. Great service . If you want to work out & didn't pack for it, they'll help you out at no charge by brining you clothes And running shoes to borrow

    Beautiful hotel, I've stayed in many hotels but never noticed one that smells so good. Enjoyed live entertainment in the lobby bar. Lovely entrance and sunken bar/lounge, pool setting is also nice....

    Beautiful hotel with different restaurants, depending on what you are in the mood for. The sushi, which you can eat in the lobby, is really good. A great, low-key dinner option in an amazing setting!

    My favorite hotel in San Jose. Great service and very nice location. Just stay away from the room service. The food is scary.

    Rooms really nice! Helpful and friendly staff. Grand decor! Holiday weekends attract party people that turn the place into a Las Vegas resort. Stay away.

    Beautiful lobby, BUT very small gym, huge letdown for a Fairmont Hotels. It's a great value if you can get the $79-99 corporate rate seasonally. I was happy with the service and ambiance.
