I drove to San Jose to take pictures of the Fairmont Hotel's suites.

1144-11, 1144-12, 1144-13.
Floor plan of Fairmont San Jose. In the main (older) tower, floors 6-19 have identical floor plans. Note that there are only two suites (the yellow rooms): NN05/NN06 and NN27/NN28. The first map is 900 pixels wide - if that's too wide to see on your screen or printer, the second and third images show just a piece of the floor (600 pixels worth).

Elevator lobby on a typical floor.

Two rooms in a nook just off the elevator lobby. On our chart, these are light-green rooms NN23 and NN24. (Note that the floorplan diagram doesn't quite show how these doors meet the hall.)

Two more rooms in a nook just off the elevator lobby. On our chart, these are light-green rooms NN25 and NN26. (Note that the floorplan diagram doesn't quite show how these doors meet the hall.)

There's a hall that goes around a set of elevators, and then there's another hall leading down to more rooms. This is where they meet. On the floorplan, we are standing outside rooms NN23 and NN24, looking "down" towards NN09 and NN10. The opening visible is 53" wide. There is about 80 1/2" of blank wall to the left and right of the 53" wide opening. The vertical clearance into the hallway is 87" or 88"; the actual ceiling (at least on this side) is 90" high. The ceiling on the other side - down the hall to the right, in other words - is actually higher, at 94".

At the far end of each hall, there is a short hall with six rooms and the fire stairs. This is a view from that short hall. I'm standing near NN30/NN31/NN32, and the maid cart is parked in front of NN03 (closed door) and NN02 (open door). Again, the floorplan chart doesn't correctly show how the walls and doors actually line up.

One of the doors into a suite. (Not the suite we entered - this is the one across the hall, so it's the opposite "handedness.") The wall that the doorbell is on is 2 feet wide; that is, this alcove is 2 feet deep, the door is 2 feet from the rest of the hall. Also there is 2 feet of clearance between the end wall and the door. We are looking at the door to room NN05, one of the yellow suites on our floorplan. On the 7th floor, the door of the suite is 83" high, and the ceiling clearance is 94.5". On the 8th floor, the door of the suite is 82" high, and the ceiling clearance is 94".

Hall floorplan detail1144-14
Here's a highlight of the floorplan, corrected for the alcove in front of NN27/NN28. The alcove is 24" deep, i.e. the doors are set back 2 feet from the rest of the hallway. In other words the lengths of pieces BC and HI are each 24". AB is 224", CD is 12" or 13", DE is 35" (the width of the doorway), EF is 78.5" or 79", FG is 35" (the Parlor doorway), GH is 24", and IJ is 371".

The parlor, view from the bar area. This is a typical room NN28. (In fact, I think it was room 828.) The circular table by the window is 42" in diameter.

Furniture inside the parlor. This cabinet hides the television. It is 73" wide by 24.5" deep, and the top of it is 35" above the floor. The door leads to the attached (dead-end) King bedroom. Not visible: To the right of the door is a desk with a chair. The desk is 48" wide by 24" deep. There is also a bar sink and some counter space immediately to our right, i.e. just inside the door.

View inside the suite's parlor from near the window. Victoria is the manager on duty, standing in the room. The doors visible are the door back out to the hall; a small closet; and the door to the connecting D-D room. Not visible: To the left is a bar sink, with some cupboard space below (but no fridge). Victoria is standing right where the ceiling changes heights. Behind her, the ceiling is 89" high; in front of her, it's 101" high.

Glass coffee table in the parlor. The chair at the left is 34"x35". The glass table is 49"x26", counting the legs. (I.e. the piece of glass is about an inch smaller than that all the way around.) The couch is 80" wide.
