Perched in regal splendor atop historic Nob Hill, the Fairmont San Francisco in San Francisco invites both business and leisure guests into an effortlessly elegant world of sumptuous accommodations, fine dining and exemplary service.

A magnificent marriage of classic and modern sophistication, recently renovated rooms overlook fabulous city and bay views and feature such luxe delights as oversize marble baths, opening windows and spacious sitting areas.

Savor the opulence of afternoon tea in the magnificent lobby, a grand century-old hotel tradition spiced up with honey from the hotel garden’s beehives.

Highlights

Situated at the only spot in the city where all the cable car lines meet, this luxurious San Francisco property is just a short scenic ride away from all the city’s dazzling sights and attractions, meaning hotel guests can easily head out to savor such adventures as hiking through Golden Gate Park or gorging on seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Step outside your door into a wonderful world of fine dining establishments, magnificent museums and elegant entertainment, or stay cocooned in the Fairmont’s lap of luxury and fit in some laps at the indoor pool, followed by dinner and drinks at your choice of three world-renowned restaurants, the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar, Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar, and the European-inspired Caffé Centro.

Bed Bugs

This hotel is supposed to be one of the nicest in the area. Unfortunately, my brother woke up in the middle of the night with a bed bug on him. He killed it and brought it to the front desk in the morning. The front desk confirmed it was a bed bug. They moved him to the room next to the pent house and dry cleaned all his clothes. When asked for compensation they refused. Management was rude and unprofessional. Don't waste your money. Not worth the experience.

Disappointed

Our room was lovely, but smelled of smoke. Called to report that we wanted a non smoking room, was told they were all non smoking rooms. I said clearly someone had been smoking here. Instead of giving us a different room, they sent up an air purifier. Didn't help. Upon checkout we realized that we had left a phone charger in our room. We were told that it shouldn't be a problem to retrieve it because no one wanted to stay in that room because of the smoke smell! They said they had received many complaints about the smoke smell (they didn't help me with my complaint). Also told us that a celebrity had been staying on the floor and that they think they don't have to adhere to the rules of no smoking. By the way, the phone charger was gone. After dinner we went back to the room and it looked as if someone had vomited in our bathroom sink. We called housekeeping and they quickly came and cleaned it up. They believe the sink backed up..... The beds were really comfortable though.

Great San Francisco experience

The Fairmont is a lovely hotel for adults and for families, and located near the cable cars to get around the city. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. I would have appreciated a coffee pot in the room since I am an early riser; however, there was a wonderful coffee shop in the lower level. I was also disappointed that there was a charge for Wifi in the hotel. Maybe this is a sign of the future, but I haven't ever had to pay for Wifi in a hotel before.

Take the trolley. It stops in front of the hotel and it's only $14 for all day on and off.

Clean, comfortable and nicely located.

At a discounted rate, this place was a no-brainer. Extremely comfortable beds, nice TV, well furnished. If a view's important to you, make sure you aren't booking an interior room overlooking the courtyard. Also note that the little free amenities you get with cheaper hotels like a refrigerator or coffee will cost you extra here.

Clean, comfortable and nicely located.

The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed we've slept in, and we were upgraded to a king for free when we checked in. The hotel itself is gorgeous. This was a no-brainer at half price, but if a view is important to you make sure you aren't booking an interior room overlooking the courtyard. The Fairmont is lacking in little "free" amenities you generally find at cheaper hotels; for instance prepare to be nickel-and-dimed if you want a fridge in your room, and to pay $3 for a good cup of coffee in the cafe downstairs because there is no complimentary hotel sludge. No surprise given the hotel's usual price point and clientele. Also prepare for exorbitant parking fees if you use their lot, they were getting $65 a night when we stayed. We parked instead at a nearby garage for $27/night. Being located at the intersection of the two major trolley lines is great in theory, though we found ourselves having to walk several blocks upstream just to catch one that wasn't full. SF's trolley system is painfully overcrowded right now (peak season?) and we watched a lot of dismayed tourists watch full trolley after full trolley pass them by. The only place they're harder to catch a space on is at the wharf, where you at least get an orderly queue instead of a bunch of rude tourists falling over each other for the 3 open spaces. For strong walkers, Chinatown and Union Square are easily in walking distance, which is great. Would stay there again in a heartbeat at the rate I paid.
