General

The hotel has received numerous awards, including the AAA Four Diamond Award and ExxonMobil Four Star Award.

Marble floors and Corinthian columns trimmed in gold accentuate the ornate Main Lobby. This area, spruced up in 1999, transports guests back to 1907, when the hotel opened. It may also transport TV fans back to the 1980s: Aaron Spelling's "Hotel" series was shot here.

The United Nations Charter was drafted in the hotel, and even the concierge service is historic. Dating back to 1973, it's the first formal concierge desk in the U.S.

All guests have access (fees apply) to the on-site ActiveSports Clubs at Nob Hill, a full-service facility with spa and fitness center.

Grab a Mai-Tai at the Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar, a kitschy-but-lovable Tiki lounge on site. Every night form 8 PM, a band on a floating stage, The Island Groove, serenades patrons with Polynesian tunes .

Location

This Nob Hill mainstay, dating back to 1907, blends contemporary and historic tastes. Decorative touches such as marble floors and Corinthian columns evoke turn-of-the-century grandeur, while modern conveniences such as high-speed Internet and a full-service fitness center and spa keep travelers grounded in the present. Three well-regarded restaurants offer options for every meal, and the city's oldest Tiki bar provides a break from the formality of the hotel.

Rooms

Accommodations -- 591 rooms, 62 of them suites -- span two buildings: the original, circa-1907 structure and a tower built in the 1960s. Rooms vary in size (325-425 square feet; up to 6,000 for suites), but all units come with flat-panel TV, luxury linen ensembles and coffeemaker. Many also offer stunning views of San Francisco Bay, while Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all (fees apply, complimentary to members of Fairmont President's Club loyalty program).

Property features

Historic grandeur overlooking the Golden Gate City from atop Nob Hill

Highlights

Situated at the only spot in the city where all the cable car lines meet, this luxurious San Francisco property is just a short scenic ride away from all the city’s dazzling sights and attractions, meaning hotel guests can easily head out to savor such adventures as hiking through Golden Gate Park or gorging on seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Step outside your door into a wonderful world of fine dining establishments, magnificent museums and elegant entertainment, or stay cocooned in the Fairmont’s lap of luxury and fit in some laps at the indoor pool, followed by dinner and drinks at your choice of three world-renowned restaurants, the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar, Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar, and the European-inspired Caffé Centro.

Fairmont San Francisco

The Fairmont is a beautiful, historic hotel. I had read complaints about the caliber of the staff's service, but there were absolutely no issues during our stay. Terrific hotel and solid staff service made for a great stay. The only concern with the hotel is that the walls between rooms in the main building are thin (this is likely a factor of the hotel's age). That being said, we slept fine all 5 nights we were there.

Just a few days but...

Our stay at the Fairmont in San Francisco was a completely excellent experience. The staff, wow! Courteous, knowledgeable, professional and absolutely friendly. Now, on the location, right and the junction of the California and Powell Cable car track. This made it easy to head out to any point of interest in any direction. Finally, let me add that the Fairmont has become our official family hotel for all future visits

The Fairmont is a top rate business hotel with 24 hour room service, very reasonable rates, large well appointed rooms and a great location in San Francisco. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the Bay Area.

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.

Good reliable Fairmont!

The venerable Fairmont is the class of SF. Views from the top of Nob Hill are spectacular, but it's not the most convenient place to walk about and find shopping or restaurants without hikes up incredibly steep hills. Use the cable cars (that's why they're there!) or drive. The hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. The breakfast buffet is excellent but pricey ($38 w/ tax), and the Tonga room should not be missed!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

All activities will require hikes up the incredibly steep Nob Hill -- best to spend the $5 for the cable cars! -- and there are no other restaurants or shopping within a short walk. If you're not physically fit, you'll need a car. But the views are spectacular, and the Fairmont SF is truly a classy place!

San Fran Fairmont

This is a classic place to stay in San Fran as the hotel is filled with much history, but the staff is unfriendly and the hotel is so big that you can easily just become another number.
