Hilton Worldwide announced the reflagging of the former Fairmont San Jose as the Signia by Hilton San Jose.

The property will be Hilton’s second Signia and its first in the Golden State.  It is slated to open at the end of April, 2022.

The Fairmont San Jose was open for over 30 years and closed its doors in March 2021.

The name “Signia” is a play on the word “insignia” and is meant to convey “signature,” indicating a company’s flagship product.  The Signia brand, Hilton said when it launched in early 2019, is dedicated to and designed specifically for the needs of meetings, events, groups, and the business traveler.

The property is located in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains, across from Plaza de César Chávez Park.  It is within walking distance of the San Jose Convention Center and is just five miles (eight kilometers) from Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.

The property’s guest rooms feature an elegant earth-tone décor and offer marble bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and showers.  The hotel’s suites are the size of two standard rooms, for a total of 900 square feet (84 square meters), with separate well-appointed living rooms with oversized sofas and several upholstered chairs.

Dining options for guests include the Fountain Restaurant, which serves breakfast; the Grill on the Alley, a chop house that has indoor and outdoor dining; the Lobby Lounge; the Pool Grill, which offers poolside light fare; and Elevated Grab and Go, a market with takeaway foods that travel well.

The Signia San Jose has 65,000 square feet (6,039 square meters) of meeting and event space including the Imperial Ballroom, which can host a banquet for 1,150 people or a reception for 3,200.
