Excellent first class hotel. Food & Drink quite expensive but you would expect this in a quality hotel. Plenty of options available close by. Staff and comfort of rooms excellent. Hotel is in good location with plenty of public transport near by. We were there for 5 days and did not need a car. Cheapest form of transport Taxi's.

We had a fantastic 5 night stay at the Fairmont in San Francisco. We were staying in the new rooms which were really comfortable. I still dream about the bed and pillows there! We also had an amazing view over the bay including Alcatraz. It was my first trip to SF and I don't think I could pass up the Fairmont on my next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for the newly refurbished rooms with a view

Love this iconic San Francisco hotel. From the grand entrance, spot on service and the newly designed rooms. This is the place to stay in SF. Book it with Sharon Walters from Travelwizard and you will be even more spoiled as she has all the ins with this superb property. When staying in the city by the bay!

I was taken here for my birthday by my wife and what a treat it was! From the moment you enter the grand lobby, you know you are in for something special. We had great food in the Tonga Room and were greeted with hospitality and excellent service by the staff. If you have the bucks go deluxe at the Fairmont, San Francisco!

Take a step back in time and bask in the majestic beauty of the historic Fairmont. A walk through the hallways is an expansive history lesson on the city. The ornate structure and the vast lobby are inviting. I highly recommend The Fairmont

We recently enjoyed an Adventures by Disney long weekend trip that stayed this hotel, so when we flew out three nights early, we added those nights here as well. What a wonderful six nights! The staff worked it out so we could stay in the same room, and the keys were keyed properly. The room was spacious and attractive, and the bedding and towels were great. The staff was very attentive. One word of caution: Do NOT order chicken strips from room service. I've had better at fast food restaurants. (Also, Cafe Cento downstairs can be quite slow in the morning, so allow time, Their breakfast sandwiches are quite good.)

Room Tip: I imagine that ALL rooms are wonderful here.
