An Elegant Getaway

I had no idea when I booked this hotel just what I was in for. Not only was the hotel fantastic it was in a perfect location for all the activities we were looking forward to. It far exceeded any expectations I had. The staff was very helpful and personable. The hotel was the most beautiful place that I've ever stayed in.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

We were very excited to find that the cable cars were a short walk from the hotel. Also the shopping was in the same location.

Grand Old Hotel

A gorgeous, old world style lobby set the tone for a wonderful stay. When we asked that the mattress be flipped over because we found the new 'pillow top' type made for a too warm, uncomfortable night's sleep the matress was quickly changed and a note left wishing us a good night's sleep. There was coffee and tea in the lobby for early risers, 5 to 7 a.m. The Fairmont's location was absolutely perfect - with all three cable car lines passing by the hotel and many neighborhoods within easy walking distance and mostly downhill!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get a Muni pass and ride the cable cars and trolleys when going from one part of the city to another. A three day pass costs $18, whereas a one-way cable car ride now costs $5. There is a booth selling the Muni Pass at the Powell and Market Street cable car turnaround point.

Friendly and lovely placeto be

There is a nice park one block from the hotel for kids to play. The cable car is out the front door to ride on down the long steep hills. There is a couple of restrants in walking distances and down hill (walking shoes required) with great pizza! The room service was great with hot food and in a timely manner. We enjoyed it like other S.F. hotel (5 star ones), relaxing and the staff was good with kids. The rooms a very large compare to other S.F. hotels.

The GPS in your car might not take take you to the hotel but to the Presideo, so check with MapQuest or get others for directions to find the hotel before leaving your home.

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.

Try afternoon tea in the Laurel Court -- delicious, gracious, relaxing and ample enough to substitute for either lunch or supper

The finest!!!

We were in town for a wedding. The hotel staff could not be more professional and accomodating. The rooms so tasteful/beautiful/spacious (we were in the tower). The breakfast buffet was unbelievable. The Fairmont treats you as if they really want you to be their guest and it is such a pleasure to stay with them. Location was great too. Definitely recommend staying with them and we certainly would go there again....

Worth the drive up Nob Hill!

The Fairmont is a must for anyone visiting San Francisco. At the top of Nob Hill, the views are spectacular! The hotel itself is gorgeous - marble and gold, classic! The rooms and closet are oversized - huge! A treat!
