Visited for a conference and stayed 3 nights. Was really happy with the recognition as a Fairmont President's Club Platinum member. My pre-stay email for an upgrade was replied to promptly and granted without even using my certificates. Once there, the dedicated check in staff for club members was extremely cordial and even followed up during my stay to ensure...

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. It is a San Francisco institution and definitely not to be missed. Thanks again for your kind words and we hope to welcome you...

Apart from the classic interiors and luxury experience I enjoyed at the Fairmont, three incidents stand out in my memory for mention. First, I would like to commend Helena at the front desk for gracefully resolving a sticky situation she was not responsible for when the bay view room I'd been assured of by global reservation was not given to...

This is a huge landmark hotel on top of one of SF's many hills. It markets itself as 5 star luxury but there's something lacking in terms of charm and service. The rooms are adequately furnished if not exactly cutting edge. Windows are small and don't let in much light. There was no separate shower and bath. There is a...

Great hotel. Front desk was helpful and friendly. They even have a text message option where they will text you to ask you about your stay and you can request things via text.

We had an amazing corporate party in the Penthouse Suite with ~100 people and the suite was just perfect! The staff was incredible and anticipated every guest's needs. The terrace and the billards rooms are amazing and we had a perfect night to watch the sunset. Can't wait to come back to the hotel and suite soon! :)

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.

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.
