I had to travel to San Francisco for business on short notice. All hotels were sold out due to a citywide event. I usually stay at the Fairmont San Francisco, so thought I would try their new property.
The hotel did not have any single rooms available due to the event. My two colleagues and I decided to book a three bedroom apartment. Since we are all pretty private, we were hesitant to do so. We should not have worried. This apartment was absolutey stunning. Each guestroom was humungous and featured a king bed and bathroom. The living room and kitchen were sleek and modern and perfect for entertaining. The best part of the apartment was the balcony - it had the most amazing view, overlooking Alcatraz. There was also a fire pit. Absolutely wonderful.
The service was great as well. I arrived really late in the evening due to a flight delay and was exhausted. I told the front desk this and they refrained from giving me a brief overview of their services, delivering me and my bags to my room quickly and offering an overview in the morning.
Additional perks - there is a free continental breakfast AND the business center is free. What a rarity in a luxury hotel! Other hotels should take notice. Your guests are willing to pay a good rate for a good hotel, but they would rather not feel as if they're being "nickled and dimed".
Although I usually prefer to stay in a more central location (this hotel was located in Fisherman's Wharf), I would certainly return given the chance.
