Loved Hotel & Location

The hotel had eligant decor, variety of restaurants, & all the amenities. It is located at the top of the hill with beautiful views, where the Cable cars meet from E/W & N/S. The only things not perfect were the voices we could hear from the room next door, and the mistake on the check out bill that they had to clear.

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.

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

First stay at the Fairmont

I was there for a short visit but recieved first class treatment from the staff. The rooms and the furniture is a little old and somewhat worn but it adds to the charm of the hotel. You really can't get a better view of the bay and the downtown area than this.

Sept 09 Review

Overall, the hotel was very nice. However, we were able to hear noise in the hallway all night when people were walking down the hall and opening and closing their doors.
