You expect high-tech sophistication from a hotel in the Silicon Valley. But while the Signia by Hilton San Jose (formerly known as the Fairmont San Jose Hotel) gives visiting entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and social media gurus everything they need to get their work done, it also knows how to pamper these tech-savvy guests—and just plain folks, too.
Kick back in one of the spacious guest rooms, all featuring luxury linens, full-size desks, and oversized windows that provide expansive views of San Jose and the hills beyond. With a prime location across from Plaza de César Chávez Park—and at the center of San Jose culture—the Signia makes a convenient home base for exploring local art or visiting nearby attractions, including the San Jose Museum of Art, the Tech Interactive, the Children’s Discovery Museum, the Opera San Jose. If shopping is higher on your list of priorities, there are the dozens of high-end boutiques and name-brand stores at Santana Row. The Signia’s central location also puts you within an easy walk of concerts and sporting events at SAP Center (home of the NHL’s San Jose Sharks). And always within sight are the Santa Cruz Mountains, which means you are an easy drive away from hiking and biking trails as well as numerous wineries that host tastings.
After a day spent taking it all in, lounge by the Signia’s rooftop pool, or unwind with a craft cocktail at AJI Bar & Robata. Make up for lost calories by treating yourself to a perfectly seared entrée at The Grill on the Alley or a vegan-friendly meal at The Pool Bar. Another on-site option is Fountain Restaurant, where you’ll find French patisserie–inspired baked specialties and breakfast favorites like lobster Benedict and salmon Florentine.
