Speechless”

Truly, the heart of San Francisco—- I had my hesitations of going to such a fancy hotel. First, most hotels— have that modern and future feel, however the Fairmont in San Francisco is Not like that. This carries heart and soul. A place that makes you feel you deeper in San Francisco, you felt you went in to a time machine. The Fairmont is truly a vacation and experience within itself. I can say, it’s clean, service is excellent—but it’s when you walk in you feel, a part of present history. Everything about this place was perfect, from the service to the room. I have never (ever) stayed in a place that made me feel like a VIP, a movie, a time era, and a comfortable hotel all at once. We had an amazing time— and we only look forward to come back to San Francisco, to just stay at the Fairmont. Truly, a unique experience. (Kudos to Blanca and the front desk team)

The hotel is very elegant and full of charm. The best time is to stay in the hotel during Christmas time. The installation is brilliant. I enjoyed the atmosphere in the lobby very much. It has a great value to stay with Fairmont which is one of my favorate hotels. The location is very convenient and closed to everything you need to visit in San Francisco.

Downtown luxury”

Having spent 14 days touring N California staying in the top traveler ranked tripadvisor hotels, I had been used to a certain level of luxury. However, the Fairmont was on another level altogether. This hotel is truly sumptuous, providing the weary traveler with a serious level of decadence and comfort. The room was large, the bed comfortable, the bathroom fine and the experience very enjoyable. OK the plug in the bath didn't fit the plug hole perfectly so I had to keep topping the bath up, and breakfast was not included, but this was a great way to end my tour and would highly recommend it. As with other San Fran hotels I ditched the hire car prior to checking in as the cost of parking and the driving experience in SF mean that finding other ways to get about is much preferable. Staff very polished.

A Classic!”

Great view of the bay, excellent service, and at the intersection of all 3 cable car routes!
Could be quite a climb to the hotel if you are not on the cable car!

I never knew this hotel has such a great history in the minds of San Francisco-ians. Walking along the corridor leading to the elevators to the suites, you will find yourself transported back in time with pictures of the building's glorious past. We got a bay view room and it was superb! Not your swanky new uber chic kind of hotel but it would be top choice for those who wouldnt mind a little bit of victorian deco and knowing you are staying in THE hotel in SF. Quiet but a decent area and easily accessible (being at the intersection of all 3 cable car lines!). For the braver ones, you can try to reach the hotel by foot :)

Once we entered into the iconic hotel, you immediately get the wow effect and history surrounds you. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with all the small details you would expect in a luxury hotel. Thank you for making our stay in San Fransisco a beutiful memory!

Complimentary champagne and strawberries were sent to our room with a personalized note. Every employee was tremendously helpful. The specialty boutiques were lovely and top of the line. The fitness center was excellent, and we were so lucky to be there on Halloween night to enjoy the Tonga Room festivities. The Fairmont experience was wonderful from the breathtaking architecture to the excellent service. We hope to return soon.

25th anniversary ”

Great luxurious hotels sometimes forget ,it's the small things that stand out. The gym although on property is not part of the hotel and guests have to pay a daily fee to use the facilities, not mentioned on the website. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there over this past week, we mentioned it upon making the reservations, we also mentioned it upon arrival, a token of appreciation would of been nice from such a large hotel as what we received from the small Inn we stayed in on napa a few days before arriving at the fairmont., to our suprise there was no card or flowers left in our room . That was a bit of a disappointment. But overall the hotel and it's staff are wonderful, will go back. Bring your own card and flowers.

Daughter Got Married”

The room was beautiful with large bathroom and beautiful views of the bay. The staff was so helpful, and so attentive. The beautiful nod to days gone by... along with a bee garden with herbs and honey to be used locally. A long hallway that displays many pictures of the history and the people who stayed at the hotel through the years. Getting around in the city was by walking, cable cars, trolleys, and cabs. It was so nice to come out of the hotel, and have the staff get us a taxi within a 1 -2 minutes. Our daughter got married (she stayed at hotel too.), it was a beautiful, non-stressful time in part due to the great service and surrounding at this historic Fairmont Hotel.

Why brand naming is a bust!”

First...and last stay. Being raised in San Francisco I had always heard so much about The Fairmont...so when the opportunjty arose to stay for a night: I accepted from a friend. The interior lobby is beautiful. The rooms not so much!! My room faced an interior wall of other windows...no views! Everything is outrageously priced...I know it's SF but $75 to park? $20 for a cocktail? That is a bit extreme. At the cost of a room...save your money and stay along the Bay on the Oakland side...you'll get much more for your money.
