Luxe on Nob Hill

The old elegance and charm are sparkling in the entry way and lobby from the moment you walk up the short stairs on red carpet. Staff are friendly and helpful from doormen to bell captains and excellent strong coffee served very early in the morning in the lobby!

A scenic seven block walk downhill leads to an assortment of North Beach eateries, many with sidewalk cafe charm; varied menus and many interesting people to watch.

Farimont San Francisco

At these discount prices, don't miss the chance to stay at the Fairmont. A legendary historic hotel that three years ago was double or triple the room rate. The breakfast buffet is a must-do experience, hanging out in the lobby is always a show, the rooms are spotless and beds heavenly. Good gym too. Nob Hill is a little inconvenient but worth it for the views. Also dog friendly. What's not to like? Use the savings to eat at some of S.F.'s great restaurants. Overall one of the great Recession deals in America.

a classic done well

it was a beautiful classic hotel with all the first class amenities. Only draw back was that I was on a corner room near the elevator so there was a lot of foot traffic outside my door. Not the end of the world but everything else was fantastic. First rate service, food and lounges.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Biscuit and blues is right down the hill, a great blues bar. Just be ready to take the cable car back up after a night out. For that matter anywhere you go be ready for a cab, trolly, cable car ride. Unless you are ready to brave the hills.

My review of The Fairmont San Francisco

This hotel represents the quality of old world elegance. Very well maintained hotel with large room, wardrobe and bath areas. Outside rooms have stunning views. We found the employees to be friendly and courteous. Located at the top of the hill.

Great place!!!

The hotel was perfectly located. Half way from Fisherman's Wharf and Market Square. What I liked about this hotel was that there was a UPS store in the hotel. We found a surfboard for our son and had it shipped to him. So do a bunch of shopping and have it shipped home instead of carrying it with you on the plane!!!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The cable cars get very busy during the day. If you just want to ride them, do it early. Get the three day or seven day pass and ride all you want.

Classic older hotel in iconic location

I have never been very fond of the business hotels in which I have stayed in San Francisco. This classic old hotel has been updated, was wonderfully comfortable and located on Nob Hill rather than in the more commercial financial district or Union Square areas. We easily walked and cabbed to dinner, the theatre and some traditional tourist locations. It was really just a lovely stay.
