HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is a gorgeous old world hotel. Service was generally very polite and efficient, though we did encounter one fellow at the check in desk who seemed quite arrogant and ”superior” and took himself a bit too seriously. Wish I remembered his name, but everyone else really was very professional and accommodating. Our room was gorgeous, spacious and classically decorated....

Thank you for your kind words about the hotel. We're thrilled to hear you had such a nice visit and you found your room so beautiful. I'm also pleased you were able to experience Tonga Room.

Let me preface this with that I stayed here for a family wedding and I'm a local to SF. The Fairmont has been a tradition in my family, but this is the first time I've ever stayed there as a hotel guest. The Tonga Room is the best. The Christmas time life sized gingerbread house is the best. But to...

The Fairmont hotel is really beautiful. It has a beautiful lobby area and shops and the lobby bathrooms were very nice too. Helena from Portugal was extremely helpful and she had the best customer service. Angela with the Concerior was extremely helpful aswell. The grounds was beautiful and had lots of pictures and art surrounding the history of the hotel....

The property is extraordinary and one of the few hotels that retains an opulent feel. Great location in Nob Hill. Easy walk to Union Square, nice walk to Ferry Plaza and Chinatown nearby. Stayed in tower. Room was spacious and great views of rooftop garden and view towards Ferry Plaza, Coit Tower and Transamerica Building. Only issue was upon check-in....

Stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to San Francisco. We loved it from the moment we pulled up outside. Really Grand looking building. When you walk inside it definitely has the wow factor. The reception staff gave us a very warm welcome. The room was great. A huge walk in wardrobe, lovely bathroom and exceedingly comfortable bed. Loved...

In planning my trip to San Francisco in December 2016 during the holiday season, I thought long and hard about the many choices of fine hotels that SF offers. Knowing the city rather well, I considered them all and finally decided that the fabled Fairmont would be a perfect place to perch for a week. I was not disappointed. First...

I live one block from this hotel, but have rented rooms a few times here for my parents. The original section of the hotel is the best. Spacious rooms, tall ceilings, and a great decor that was redone. Nice finishes, comfortable beds. I would highly recommend. Great place to have drinks on the outdoor park (that's on top of the...

One of my favorite hotel stays thus far. I recently stayed one night on a Thursday evening. The female staff member that checked us into our room (around 4-5pm) was very kind and diligent. I stayed in room 231, a single queen standard. The room itself was very clean and had a nice light rose scent from the toiletries that...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
