Great business location

At $240 per night, this was a good bargain. The hotel staff were very helpful. The room was quiet and comfortable.

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.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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

Very nice hotel

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.

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.

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.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

Skip the lobby bar at the Fairmont and head across the street to the top of the Marc for drinks instead.
