Editorial review:

This lavish business hotel is located in downtown San Jose and is great, especially for older guests. The lobby is grand, the rooms and suites are large and modern, and the staff is very helpful. There are numerous restaurants to choose from, and it can be fun to people-watch in the piano lounge. Critics felt that the facilities need to be upgraded.

                                The toilet wasn't working properly and shower water was either cold or hot, unable to control to warm.. Breakfast was also over priced.

                                It is greatly overpriced. Plus you must pay for every little thing. The internet service was terrible. My room was not cleaned one night.

                                the atmosphere was lovely and the staff is very helpful and friendly!

                                the pagoda restaurant could improve their customer service, food presentation and staff etiquette.

                                Lots of things to do within walking distance. There are also things to do inside the hotel itself and the cleanliness of the entire hotel.

                                A bit of a strange odor in the hallways leading to the rooms.

                                The convenience of staying where our event was.

                                The welcoming of the president's club desk. The fact that we ordered 4 more wine glasses and they charged. We were woken up by a guest pounding on the door insisting that this was there room and had to call security. Last, they would not honor our triple A card and that disappointed me. We have always stayed at Fairmonts, in San Francisco and Maui, this was not a good experience.

                                Good clean atmosphere and its location

                                Too many people in the hotel using the facilties and bathrooms from xmas on the park and rides between towers. we stayed in the south tower and found it difficult to go there or leave due to the amount of people around. Very intimidating

                                Having to go outside to get to tower rooms. Under staffed front desk.

                                I liked that it was high class and very elegant.

                                I did not like that staff did not let the customers know of there extra charges upon checking in to the hotel.

                                Previous time I lodged, four months earlier - the room was more updated / less worn out than the one I stayed last time at the third floor

                                THIS is my idea of comfort & treating myself. The staff is exceptional, the room was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable & the temperature was perfect. The San Jose Summer Jazz Festival was ongoing & the hotel was at capacity. The guests walk around with smiles because the staff goes out of their stay to acknowledge their clients with patience and professionalism. The Conceirge was very helpful to me also. I am pleased and bragged all last night and today about the class of the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California. I was treated with dignity and respect like any celebrity would be if they visited the hotel. I enjoyed my visit thoroughly & recommend it highly to all my friends. I wished I could have stayed longer to take advantage of all the restaurants & healthy services they provide. The Pagoda restaurant's food is well worth the visit. While at the concert across the street I boasted to my friends about my good fortune and memorable stay at the Fairmont Hotel. I look forward to my return.

                                I wasn't able to put anything in the refrigerator. It was, in fact warm so none of the refreshments were acceptable for consumption. The parking valets were so helpful and friendly even at the busy checkout time. I went to pick up my car & they retrieved it quickly. I was quite surprised as many people were at the time of pick up after the concert was over being told we were 1/2 hour late past the pickup deadline. We had all paid for days of parking ahead of time but had to pay an additonal $12.50. The last performers were late to the stage & we paid for that. The garage personnel were also a delight to around. It isnt their fault that this info was not made available to the hotel guests

                                I like everything about Fairmont- the live music, decor, and room amenities are awesome. Also the location is great. My only suggestion is that you tell guests that an extra hundred dollars is added onto room charge. I was not aware and got caught short of funds at restaurant. Would have been nice to know to avoid the embarrassment .
