Fairmont San Francisco

I left my heart in San Francisco!

Fairmont San Francisco

The world-class Fairmont San Francisco, perched atop Nob Hill, is centrally located in the heart of the city, providing guests with breathtaking views and easy access to renowned attractions. This landmark crown jewel of the City by the Bay offers guestrooms and suites with stylish furnishings and updated interiors, revitalizing the already stunning classic-meets-contemporary accommodations. The hotel's two dining outlets now feature exciting new menus. Tonga Room highlights family-style Polynesian-fusion plates, while Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar has an added emphasis on fresh, seasonable California coastal cuisine.

It was out first time staying at this hotel. The Fairmont was perfectly located, extremely nice, and had amazing views and service. The concierge and staff were phenomenal -- from restaurant and activity recommendations to finding a doctors office open on Sunday late afternoon and convincing them to stay open for my wife and daughter. They were phenomenal. The only downside to the property was no pool, but we were busy enough that it did not matter. I would highly recommend this hotel.

SF Fairmont Stay


Reviewed on: 11 Aug 2016

This is a beautiful hotel with the most friendly staff. Our room was exquisite! The views of Alcatraz and Coit Tower were stunning and right out of SF Fairmont window. We ate at the Laura Court Restaurant for breakfast - both the food and the staff were amazing. The Tonga room was the most special dinner of our trip. Our waiter, David, was so in tune with our kids. He was so accommodating, friendly, and fun. The atmosphere in the Tonga room made it all the more memorable. From the friendly service to the perfect accommodations and location, the SF Fairmont will definitely be where we stay when visiting San Francisco again.

The Grand Dame Hotel in SF

Everyone should stay at least once in this great old hotel. It is well located for China Town and the Cable Car routes. It provides a beautiful setting, inside and out. Staff mostly very good, with exception of in dining room, where dinner service was slow and not very attentive. Breakfast buffet is expensive but very good.

The Fairmont is a super classy place to stay. Wonderful food and atmosphere. We had a few minor questions about the mini-bar and in room iPad and these were taken care of immediately. The check in hosts and concierge personal could not be more friendly and competent.

We had a fun stay at The Fairmont in San Francisco. The location was great. We walked to Chinatown and Little Italy as well as Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghiradelli Square. We managed to cover a lot of ground in less than 24 hours!

Excellent! Perfect location! Our Room (23) had a beautiful view of the city to the bay. Easy local transportation via cable cars and taxi. The hotel itself was tops in all regards; room, food , services, etc. The Fairmont was perfect for my wife and I too introduce our grandson to San Francisco. Thanks for selecting this hotel for us.
