The Fairmont is well situated in downtown San Jose. The lobby area is extremely lively and the common areas of the hotel are very well maintained.
That being said, for the price paid, I would have expected a higher quality hotel. When one is traveling for business, the main needs are a good bed for a good night's rest, reliable internet so you can get work done, and a quiet, clean room.
The Fairmont San Jose failed on many of those items:
Beds: extremely worn out and soft
Cleanliness: stains on sheets, hair in blanket, bathroom counter had lots of marks all over it
Internet: rather slow (note that Fairmont loyalty program members get free internet but it's not as good as the premium internet)
The staff was fantastic so I do want to point that out. I just didn't feel like this is a $300/night hotel.
