Fairmont San Francisco

Nob Hill, San Francisco

Virgin rating

The hotel

Fairmont San Francisco embodies the grandeur of this historic city. It effortlessly combines impeccable service with luxurious rooms and top-notch facilities. As it’s set high atop Nob Hill, you’ll enjoy great city views and can practically hop on the cable cars from outside the hotel. When it comes to eating, you’ll find some delicious local food at the hotel’s three restaurants. Why not treat yourself to traditional afternoon tea at the weekend or visit The Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar for, apparently, the best Mai Tai in the city.

Your hotel is beautiful. We had a wonderful experience staying at the Fairmont. We came for a weekend wedding at your hotel and it was lovely.

Your hotel is beautiful. We had a wonderful experience staying at the Fairmont. We came for a weekend wedding at your hotel and it was lovely. On a side note, my pajama pants accidentally were picked up by housekeeping and went into your laundry. You were able to find them and bring them back! Your staff was kind and helpful. The reason you received a nine instead of a ten, is that we could hear our neighbors through the walls - talking and snoring. Also, our shower curtain was dirty. Read less

I love this hotel. The location is great. The service is incredible. For business travel FAIRMONT SF is perfect. Able to work in room or in the outdoor corridor and to take meetings in the restaurant and bar. Views from upper floors are so amazing. It makes a work trip feel like a vacay!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Fairmont San Francisco. The staff was outstandingly kind, and my room was absolutely stunning. My tower room had the best view of the city that I've ever seen, and the bed was very comfortable. Thank you to the Fairmont for a fabulous stay in San Francisco. I will be back!

Hotel in prime position but we were surprised to have to pay for internet and not be provided with complimentary bottled water, given the room rate. Mini bar had been cleared out and hotel bar hours unaccommodating. We were also still waiting to have our room made up by mid afternoon and had to ask for this to be done. Stills seems to be trading… Read more
Hotel in prime position but we were surprised to have to pay for internet and not be provided with complimentary bottled water, given the room rate. Mini bar had been cleared out and hotel bar hours unaccommodating. We were also still waiting to have our room made up by mid afternoon and had to ask for this to be done. Stills seems to be trading mainly on its past reputation but sadly it doesn’t match the service standards one expects these days, especially for what you pay. We won’t be returning. Read less
