Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Fairmont San Francisco is lauded for its prime Nob Hill location, providing convenient access to city attractions and transport. Its historic charm and festive atmosphere are appreciated, though some areas may benefit from an update. Guests enjoy the well-maintained cleanliness and amenities like the Tonga Room, but the hotel's Wi-Fi and additional charges have drawn criticism. While the rooms are often considered outdated with noise issues, service quality can be hit or miss. Many guests find the costs steep, questioning the overall value.

I selected this hotel as it was perfectly-place for a Book Signing Event... My view of Alcatraz, San Francisco Bay and Beyond were nothing-short-of Spectacular. But where the 'Rubber Meets`the`Road' for me was in the service levels by the team who work here. Even the Bellman has a history to share-there! And that wonderful lass behind the front desk, 'pinkie-promised' not to tell a single soul about my leaving my ammenities kits at the last hotel! She kindly topped me up with toothbrush, shave gear and other items I'd left behind in my wake... I'm up at 5 am every day to write, and I set up my laptop-nest in the massive lobby, surrounded by fabulous memorabillia of the Hotel, it's famed guests and more...

This is an epic place to stay in San Francisco. I'd suggest booking the tower on a high floor as there are few better views of the city and bay. Great rooms, great staff and good restaurants on site. Short walk to Chinatown for amazing Dim Sum and good outside restaurants within a short trip. Tonga Room is an amazing experience on site so plan ahead and book a reservation as it gets very backed up for walk-ins. We had a great time here.

My overall booking was badly and unprofessionally handled. I made the booking from booking.com with a condition that payment will be made at the property but Fairmont charged me USD 437.00 on my credit card upfront immediately after booking. Upon calling to clarify they pushed me to booking.com. Then booking.com confirmed that they processed the refund. It has been over a month now, there is not refund. Moreover, the stay was not very pleasant due the staff attitude, may be the fairmont ego it was. Very unfriendly and we don't care kinda attitude. I have stayed at fairmont multiple times before being an AllAccor member, but this has lowered my expectations. No doubt the property and location is amazing but that does not help if the guest treatment and handling is not up to the standards of Fairmont.

All I can say is just stay here. What a wonderful experience staying at the Fairmont. All staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is in pristine condition and is jaw-dropping gorgeous. My room was in the tower and had an amazing view of San Francisco. The bed was excellent. I like a bed that is soft but still offers support. The bathroom was spotless and well appointed. I ate at the Laurel Court each day for breakfast and the food was good and the restaurant was very relaxing. Drinks and snacks at the Tonga bar are a must!!

This Nob Hill location boasts beautiful panoramic views. Staff is great. Building is the original historic Fairmont. Feels very fresh and young because they did a great job here. I’d gladly go back. Big room with clean shower. I felt very welcome

Poor experience all around. Living on past reputation and overpriced relative to luxury competitors. Perhaps it’s because it’s owned by Accor now. Examples include: only one person at front desk for check in, no update on whether my room was ready (despite being promised consistently I’d be texted, no such text ever arrived), little to no water pressure in the shower, no hot water, just lukewarm. And the best part - the tablet had another guests name as a welcome. Would never stay there again

I booked a king signature room. When I checked in I was told I had a great room. The view was spectacular but the noisy elevators next to the room did not result in a peaceful stay or sleep. I was unable to change rooms as there were no others available. Very disappointing. There was also a daily charge for an Urban experience per day of 35$. Unfortunately, I had to ask every day for the water and on the third day I asked when the maid was cleaning my room but received no water. I was not told about WIFI at check in and had to call to ask how to connect. I was not told there was a water refill station in the lobby. The maid service was poor and I had to ask each day for them to clean my room. On the third day I had to call as the room had not been cleaned even by 3 pm. One day they only changed the towels. Not what I would expect from a 5 star hotel. During my check out I informed the staff member about the above issues. The staff made no apologies. In fact their tone and demeanor was in disbelief that such things could occur and response was quite insulting ..they would have to look into that, that is unusual of the housekeeping department. It was over all a disappointing experience.
