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...

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...

I stayed at the Fairmont for two nights due to a corporate sales event being held at the property. I love Fairmont hotels having stayed at a couple in Africa, Middle East and Hawaii. This hotel didn't disappoint at how luxurious it is! Located in the Knob Hill area of San Francisco, there are plenty of amazing views of the...

We enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont. The service was outstanding and workout facilities were excellent. The room was surprisingly spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The location near Union Square is great for walking to all of the sights, restaurants and shopping.

This historic property is beautiful. The decorations around Xmas are fun. The staff was very nice and helpful. The manager texted me upon check in to confirm that our stay was going well and suggested I text him if there were any issues. The food and drinks were pricey, but to be expected. Tip: Sign up for the free Fairmont...

Our visit started out with Scott Bellamy remembering our names and personally welcoming us to the Fairmont! I also asked him for a couple of his favorite restaurants that he'd recommend and he suggested some of our new favorites. This is the first time we'd ordered room service and my wife and I found it shockingly excellent - you can't...

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.
