      Stay here If you like "lips service"”

      My wife and I were here for 5 days, and everything was great until we had our afternoon tea at the restaurant located in the lobby on the 2nd day. The food was mediocre and they charged $170 for a few sandwiches and cake (and I literally meant a few). We raised the issue with the restaurant manager name Brian, he was apologetic and offered to have us back for dinner so that they can make up for the bad experience we have had. Dinner time came and we turned up at the restaurant, no reservation was made for us...Brian wasnt there and no one know anything about the "offer" he has made. We were upset by this, so we raised the issue with the front desk manager name "Maggie" via an email. Whom then promised to get back to us within a day about the service we have been given. Upon check-out, we raised the issue again and were promised again someone from the hotel will get back to us within a few days. Up until now, a week after we checked out...we still have not heard back from Fairmont

      Beautiful hotel with so much history. Great location on top of Nob Hill. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and thought it was a little ordinary for the richness of the hotel. Our room had a great view of the bay. Would stay there again but would not eat there again.

      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.

      This is one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed at, opulence is the word I would use to describe this hotel and this entire area of hotels. It was amazing all the movie stars and politicians who have shot films and stayed here; the Kardashians, Anthony Bourdain and Orson Welles to name a few. Highly recommend!

      This is a true 5 star hotel, the customer service is second to none, I’ve stayed in very few hotels around the world that offer this kind of attention to the guests. I will certainly be returning on my next visit to San Francisco.

      I knew this was a special hotel but you have to go to experience it. We stayed in a signature room in the tower and had a view of the golden gate bridge, Alcatraz and the bay. What more could you ask for. The staff are wonderful. I did not want to leave!

      The hotel itself is exceptional, staff were courteous and professional. Our room was great however even though we asked for a view we did not get one. We decided on our last day in SF we would stay in a nice place if they were any cheap last minute deals, there is a lot of extra charges involved so please be aware.

      The location is just between the union square and fisherman wharf. You have to get used to the slope of San Francisco or you have better to go by taxi or cable car. The hotel is a historical building with luxurious decoration. The room is clean and spacious.

      The 5 star treatment as soon as we pulled up curbside in our car! Every staff member we encountered treated us with exceptional curtesy. 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!

      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.

      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)
