I stayed here for one night with my girlfriend before heading up to Napa Valley for a weekend. This is a nice property that is right in Fisherman's Wharf and has great restaurants adjacent. The one bedroom suite was very nice and comfortable bed. The shower was great. We went to the wine reception in the evening and it was... More

The two bedroom 'apartment' they gave us was enormous and very beautiful. The amenities provided were way more than comprehensive. The view from our patio was breathtaking. The location of the property makes it probably the best in the city. So why mixed feelings? Well basically this is a time share facility disguised as a 'hotel'. For me, I missed... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom suite at the end of a business trip to Napa. The room was immaculate when we arrived and the bedrooms were perfect. There is a full kitchen with nice cookware, so we shopped for a few things at the market directly across the street. Nice and convenient! We found the staff... More

The Fairmont Heritage is an absolute gem. We didn't even realize it existed until we joined part of a travel/vacation club that uses this property as their San Francisco location. Located IN Ghiradelli Square, you couldn't possibly have a better location. One block from the water, you can begin your day on one end of the waterfront and spend your... More

We spent 7 days in San Francisco in a two bedroom residence, and everything was perfect. Easy check in, a helpful and kind staff. Confortable beds, excellent location. The chauffeured car was very useful, and the drivers were always very kind. For those (like me) that love cooking, they have a state of the art kitchen. Definetely we had a... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Heritage Place for 3 nights in a 1BR suite.
