This hotel is located right in the heart of San Fran. We stayed for our Honeymoon (mid 20's couple) in an upgraded bay view room. Location is great for visiting everything especially if you use the cable car system. The room itself - The view (see photo) was out of this world. 12 floor of the tower block. The room...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 March 2017

We spent a 3 day weekend at the Fairmont. Perched atop a hill, the views of the Bay are spectacular! The pillow top beds are heavenly, and the rooms are quiet. The Happy Hour in the Tonga Room reminded us of the Disneyland Tiki Room-with adult beverages. My daughter and I dressed up and enjoyed the afternoon tea. She loved...

Power/safety issues in my apartment forced me + SO to find a hotel for a night at 11pm--forced out of the comfort of our home, we decided to indulge ourselves a little bit by staying at the Fairmont. We called beforehand as we were booking so late, and the Fairmont was more than happy to accommodate us. I was greeted...

Our room was small for 4 people but nicely appointed. It had a great view of the bay. The common areas are stunning. This is a convenient location. Service in the bar area was super slow the day we stopped in.

If you want the quintessential San Francisco experience, you must stay at the Fairmont. From the friendly doormen, the magnificent lobby, and possibly the best location in the city, you will not be dissapointed. We stayed 2 nights recently on a road trip through coastal Cali, and our stay at the Fairmont was the highlight of the trip. Within walking...

We had a nice quiet room for a reasonable rate. The location was great. We could and did walk to Chinatown. To top off a great weekend stay, which we planned to attend Beach Blanket Babylon and the Bill Maher show at Davies Hall, we got a free classic car show right at our front door on April 22 &...

This is a gorgeous, historic hotel. Two different cable car stops a right outside the hotel. It is located on Nob Hill, within walking distance of Union Square and easily travel to any other part of the city. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The lobby is magnificent. There are certain problems with the hotel. Not having free in...

Stayed here for 4 nights over Easter. From first check in I knew I was going to love the hotel. The lady that checked us in was wonderful - very helpful and I was lucky to get an upgrade to a one bed suite. The room was lovely, quite recently decorated in grey tones - very tastefully done.

Thank you for your very kind words about the hotel. I'm pleased to hear you had such a nice stay with us and I'm sure the room upgrade was a "suite" surprise.

We stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. The staff was very friendly and our room was very nice. They have great restaurants at the hotel. We enjoyed the Tonga Room & Laurel Court. We also loved the location, just far enough from the craziness of the city.

We stayed at the Fairmont for two nights and had a wonderful time. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and spacious. There were three of us staying in one room, so they even had the pullout couch ready for us before we checked in. Highly recommended!

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.

“Our view was of the center core of the building. But we got it for a reasonable rate, so we were not expecting an ocean or park view.”
