So I booked our Honeymoon back in Feb 2016 and when going to San Francisco as our first port of call I couldn't think of anywhere else but the Fairmont to stay. Let's just say it didn't disappoint. A grand hotel full of rich history and beautiful decor to match. Staff were all amazingly friendly and only too happy to...

While driving back from Sausalito to Palo Alto we decide to visit the Fairmont to see the Gingerbread house and have a drink in the Tong Room. Unfortunately the Tonga Room was not open on Tuesday. We were not all that disappointed as we came to see the Gingerbread house and had a drink in the adjoining lounge. The Christmas...

I have visited and stayed at many "Famous Historical" hotels in my travels. While none of them have been bad, the Fairmont is very high above all of them. This hotel has it all. The lobby, bar, restaurant, courtyard, and rooms are wonderful. If i can complain, breakfast is very overly priced. Other than that, it is great. After i...

This a beautiful hotel. The staff is exceptionally kind, friendly, and professional. The conference food has been the highest quality I have ever had. The taste and variety is out of this world!!! I cannot wait to visit here again and in the meantime need to plan on bringing my wife for a romantic getaway.

Grand hotel with the vintage feel, friendly staff, great rooms with superb views of the city and food was also fantastic. Loved all the old marble and watching the gingerbread house being setup for Christmas.

Awesome Hotel, especially when decorated for Christmas. Gingerbread house with Santa inside for kids, food is awesome, staff is unbelievable, great amenities, great view, close to China town, and Fishermans Wharf. Only downside is $70.00 a day to park

The room was beautiful and comfortable, with a nice view. On the rooftop garden, the view is spectacular! The hotel bar has delicious food and drinks, and friendly bartenders and patrons. In two visits, we've noticed that both the staff and patrons are friendly - not snooty. The Sunday brunch buffet was worth every penny! I chose the chilaquiles entree...

Would recommend this the Fairmont on Nob Hill in San Franciso to anyone, the hotel was beautiful. Our view from the 22 floor room was breathtaking! It was clean and comfortable! We spent the evening in the Tonga room, what fun! Great service and food and drinks!

The Fairmont is dripping in history which was lovely to embrace on our trip to San Fransico. A city that is outstanding, however despite paying thousands to stay in the Fairmont for our vacation and celebrating our daughters 18th Birthday there is lots of hidden extras that disappoints. On our arrival we were informed it would be $ 70 per...

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.
