It's a good value and gives you the feel of a boutique hotel without a true boutique hotel lobby experience. The only negative was the lack of sound insulation from the hallway, but I'm a heavy sleeper so I didn't mind it much.
Compared to other hotel's in the area, it was a decent price for what you got. Could have been a lot nicer though if the continental breakfast was either cheaper or free. But overall, I would definitely return here if I was to return to San Jose.

Went to San Jose for Christmas. The location was absolutely PERFECT! Right across the street was the biggest Christmas display in San Jose. The decoration of the chocolate Grinch was awesome. However, the rest of the displays were a little old and tired looking. The staff was exactly what you'd expect at the Fairmont--top notch. Room service was prompt and overpriced as usual, but the food was good. Be aware that if you even TOUCH the in-room snacks (that are both on the counter next to the TV and in the refrigerator) you will be charged. I did not like this as I was travelling with a teenager and did not want to leave the bottle of wine on the counter out when I left her in the room, but if I touched it, I was charged. We had a double/double room in the main building which was very spacious and quiet. It overlooked the mountain side which was nice and also the Knight-Ridder building, which I appreciated since I worked for them for 25 years. Nice walk in closet, a vanity for grooming and both a bathtub and a shower. The bed was nice, but not as nice as a sleep number bed would have been, and it could have used a nicer comforter that was a little thicker. There were a few problems with upkeep--there were a few tears in the wallpaper, the bathtub controls were not securely on the wall--you could see the hole in the wall, and the bathroom vanity was dirty near the tissue holder. That always kind of creeps me out. There was free coffee and tea and plenty of outlets for electronic
I was at a 3 day conference at the Marriott and was extremely impressed by the Ramada San Jose. From how clean and inviting the rooms were, to the staff and facilities including the complimentary breakfast.
I highly recommend the RSJ and look forward to going back next time I'm in SJ.

Perfectly situated between Carmel and San Fran in downtown San Jose. Very positive experience. Downtown San Jose is very trendy and there are pubs, bistros, pizza parlors, all manner of eateries, and awesome coffee shops. Staff was very friendly and attentive. It took less than an hour to drive to SF and we wandered all around the down town. The rooms were clean and my wife loved the size of the bathrooms. All positive. Highly recommend.
