Historic grandeur overlooking the Golden Gate City

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.

Highlights
  • The hilltop location delivers panoramic and breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay
  • Hop on any one of the city's cable cars right out front
  • Union Square shopping is only a four-block walk from the hotel
  • Valet and self parking are available for an added fee.
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 come with flat-screen televisions, Frette luxury linens, MP3 docking stations and Miller Harris toiletries. Many also offer stunning views of San Francisco Bay, while Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all (fees apply).

Features

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 Club One at Nob Hill Health Club, 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. On weekend nights, a band on a floating stage serenades patrons with Polynesian tunes .

Just lounging in the lap of luxury

Check in was quick and easy with car and bell service being prompt and personable. Once in we were able to walk to dinner nearby and hop the trolley cars in all directions conveniently. Room service was a delight.

There is a coffee shop on the "P" floor at the back of the hotel with a good breakfast menu which is much less than that available in the hotel. If you looking for a coffee and light breakfast this is a good alternative.

Only one disappointment

Gorgeous hotel, and rate comparable to other SF hotels that are not nearly as grand. Only disappointment was that bar at top of hotel with spectacular view of the bay and city was closed eight years ago and no longer available to the public except for special functions.

A dream of an overnight stay

Was there a pool? My husband said he didn't think so. I saw a fitness class in progress, but it looked like it may have cost extra. I didn't see any fitness equipment. Walking the hills of San Francisco convinced me that I didn't need a stair climber for exercise! The hotel was absolutely GREAT.

Nice, but fading

Service wasn't what we expected (forgot to leave new towels when old ones removed; one tiny soap bar for entire visit, despite a request; maid removed newspapers we wanted to take with us); Contrary to the Orbitz billing, wifi wasn't included in our rate (although it was free to any member of the Fairmont Presidents Club). And think twice about the Nob Hill location -- nice views, but it's a long trip down a very steep hill to go anywhere else in San Francisco.

Gorgeous hotel, fantastic value

Orbitz offered an unbelievable rate ($129!) for this world-class, historic yet updated, beautiful, prestigious hotel. The room was gorgeous and exquisitely appointed, the service warm and solicitous, and the on-site amenities unique (try the historic Laurel Court afternoon tea) and top-notch. At the Orbitz-offered rate, this has to have been the greatest hotel value of all times.

Very nice hotel!

We enjoyed Fairmont very much, very elegant. The hall ways were wide and lighted, ( a plus) and the room were very classic and beautiful. The furnishings were very up dated and classy! Very comfortable bed and lovely linens. The T.V.. was large and the room was large enough for the 2 of us. We will come here again. Also let us have a late check out of 1:00. The restaurant, Tonga Room was excellent! food and service.

Beautiful hotel,HORRIBLE food prices

The hotel itself is beautiful. The scenery is spectactular. We left the drapes open all night, just to take one more peek as we would awaken during the night. However, food prices were astronomical $13.00 for one pastry, $27.00 each for continental breakfast??? We've had complimentary bottled waters at much lower class hotels. Fairmont charges $5.45 each a peice for an 18 oz bottled water. Also, not posted, is the $57.00 nightly valet parking (not including tip). The hotel may offer some discounted rates, but makes up for it over and above on everything else.

A Wonderful Choice

My wife and I have stayed at other hotels in San Francisco. Even though The Fairmont San Francisco is not in the center of the downtown area, where we had stayed previously, we didn't mind the extra walk to reach the Union Square area. The hotel made up for its slightly "out of the way" location.
