The Fairmont San Jose is an AAA Four-Diamond 805-room high-rise luxury hotel at 170 South Market Street in San Jose, California, located on the Plaza de César Chávez in Downtown San Jose.[5]


Main entrance on the Plaza de César Chávez.

There is a swimming pool and associated deck on rooftop, with a specially designed windscreen to create a microclimate designed to be acceptable for sunbathing and swimming. The analysis of this rooftop environment was carried out in the early planning stages using a computer simulation of air flow in the presence of the then existing and proposed Fairmont structures.[citation needed] There is also an indoor cabana/bar on the rooftop.

The 13-story, 264 room annex was constructed on the site of the historic Hotel Montgomery, that was moved 57 m (187 ft) to the south and restored to what is now the Four Points by Sheraton San Jose Downtown hotel at a cost of US$8.5 million.[6]
