Epic

It really is steep butts the summit of nob hill, but this places you in perfect stead for the unbelievable view of the city from up there. The hotel itself is a thing of beauty and anyone interested in history and who get a bang out of a hotel with a bit of a story check out how this temple of a building came into being. The guest history too makes you feel a sense of prestige just loafing around in your luxury quarters with unbelievably comfortable bed. Close to union square and fisherman's wharf too but you might not want to leave your room.

As good as hoped for

Charming place. Old, reserved, in the middle of the city.

Fans of Fairmont

After spending a week at the Chicago Fairmont, we were looking forward to our stay at the San Francisco Fairmont. We were NOT disappointed! This is a 5-star hotel and the flagship of the Fairmont properties. It is stunningly gorgeous, staff is excellent, room was clean and oh so comfortable. We loved spending our 25th anniversary here and will be back. The only thing to know is that it's not as close to Union Square as we would have liked. Cafes, restaurants, shopping is in Union Square and there are none in walking distance from the Fairmont.

Great value on the right dates

Walking into the Fairmont Nob Hill, your stresses seem to melt away. Staffing, ambience, room comforts, etc., all match up to a very great experience! Use non-prime days to get REALLY great deals at this 5-star hotel.

Experience San Francisco-past and future

The hotel is absolutely fabulous. The entrance is so extraordinary. After learning about the history of the hotel, it makes you appreciate it even futher. Large, spacious rooms with excellent staff. I would not stay anywhere else.

Amazing!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even upgraded our suite upon check-in. Our room was well appointed and the view was amazing. The fitness centre is definitely worth a look, although there is no pool or steam room. Late night dining options are limited unless you want to go to the Tonga Room. The final climb to walk to the hotel will leave you breathless, but the location is central to dining and shopping and close to the Muni or BART. We had a fantastic trip!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

North Beach had the most amazing sidewalk cafes and pizzarias (at a reasonable price). The hotel staff recommended a great sushi place a few blocks away, but we found the Nob Hill Cafe they recommended pricey and underseasoned.

Super Nice!

Wonderful experience. Room always clean. Very comfortable bed. Nice linens. Large flat screen TV. Quiet. Convient to Trolley Stops. Staff very helpful. Refrigerator stocked with pricey refreshments. Would have preferred a little room for my own purchases. Great view of bay.

Buy a MUNI pass and jump on and off trolley and busses. Lots of dining nearby, but who wants to walk uphill with a full stomach.
