Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

The hotel

Imagine staying in a real-life chocolate factory. Ghirardelli Square, once home to San Francisco’s famous chocolatiers, has been reimagined into an upscale retreat. You'll find Fairmont Heritage Place right here, as well as a collection of exceptional restaurants, including a seafood eatery, American diner, and of course Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop. Take in the views of San Francisco Bay and burn off some of those chocolatey treats with a stroll to Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 and Golden Gate Bridge. Then return to your loft-like apartment with its original exposed bricks, to curl up in your living room, whip up dinner in your upscale kitchen, or order in supper from one of Ghirardelli Square’s restaurants.

Outstanding 5-Star experience. Wonderful place for a family stay in San Francisco. The residence is in the backside of Ghirardelli Square and consists of all suites, up to 3 bedrooms. The property is managed by the famous Fairmont Hotel chain and is used for their fractional ownership program, but many of the units are also available for booking by the public. The amenities and services are all quite high end, as are the prices. Although we booked ours online (via Kayak/Expedia) and got a great deal about 40% off, down from a typical of about $1,000 per night. Location is spectacular in SF...just upstairs from the Ghirardelli chocolate store, with a private patio that overlooks the Ghirardelli promenade, a block from Fisherman's Wharf, 20 minutes stroll from the Ferry Building and their fabulous farmers market and a short jog or ride to the Golden Gate Bridge. Service was impeccable - great interactions at front desk, bell hop, etc. Another nice benefit is the washer and dryer in each unit. Very handy with three kids! We really enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Heritage Place and will certainly return. Read less

This property is an excellent 5Star facility. The suites are roomy, comfortable with great views. The staff could not be more accommodating. This experience took place over a one year plus period during Covid which closed the bar and restaurant.

Our 2 bedroom hotel was impressive. Offered all the amenities needed and very clean. Location was ideal since it was at Ghiradelli on the waterfront. Very close to pier 39 and nearby points of interest that we would walk or Uber/Lyft to. I highly recommend this hotel! Read less

Decided to do a staycation in SF during the heatwaves and truly enjoyed the spacious and air conditioned room. The square was pretty quiet because of COVID but it was great to walk around to the Aquatic Beach and get an ice cream sundae from the Ghirardelli Chocolate. Would highly recommend and would stay again!
