I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Fairmont San Francisco. The staff was outstandingly kind, and my room was absolutely stunning. My tower room had the best view of the city that I've ever seen, and the bed was very comfortable. Thank you to the Fairmont for a fabulous stay in San Francisco. I will be back!

Hotel in prime position but we were surprised to have to pay for internet and not be provided with complimentary bottled water, given the room rate. Mini bar had been cleared out and hotel bar hours unaccommodating. We were also still waiting to have our room made up by mid afternoon and had to ask for this to be done. Stills seems to be trading mainly on its past reputation but sadly it doesn’t match the service standards one expects these days, especially for what you pay. We won’t be returning.

I’m not sure where to start about my experience here. It seems fitting to start at the beginning. From the moment we pulled up, we were treated like valued guests. Valet, bellhop, Sean, William and Eldridge, thank you so much. Sometimes people don’t realize the impression they leave on others, these guys are the best. Check in was efficient, the hotel is beautiful with high ceilings. Sean helped us with our bags and we made our way to the golden gate suite. Wow. The views from the suite are unforgettable. We took Sean’s advice and had dinner at the Tonga Room - it was so good we brought our friends back the next night for a memorable dinner and good time. I didn’t get the hostesses name, dark hair young lady, a big thank you for your infectious personality and warmth. Our two nights at this hotel are some of my fondest vacation memories. Life is short, do yourself a favor and stay here sometime.

I have long looked forward to visiting San Francisco and staying at the Fairmont. My stay did not disappoint. We enjoyed the hotel, the service and hospitality of Eldredge (Bellman) was exceptional! Truly Five Star!!!

The internet was not working the entire time during our stay. A engineer took it upon himself to walk into our room uninvited when we did not answer the door. we expressed our concerns with the front desk upon check out and was told a manager would reach out to us. To date we have not received a call from a manager.

We are here now and the hotel is beautiful. Rooms are large like all Fairmont hotels. All my interactions with service has been fine. No complaints. Concierge has been fantastic. Not sure why other reviews were so bad but know SF has been having a lot of staffing problems. Maybe that was the cause.

Well located, next to Union Square and Piers. But only if you like to walk (long walks) with up and downs on the hills. The general staff (check-in and check-out) it was normal, nothing exceptional. I cannot say the same about the restaurant staff, i had a terrible service with long waiting to order, to bring your food, to bring the check. There is a lot of space to improvement and certainty it was not a standard to this kind of hotel category. The room it was located on Tower Building, high level and great view. It was big, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was great either, but the bathtub was not working, I became so frustrated, after a long walk I needed and I could not use. I had some lower and higher experiences on this hotel, if someday I came back to San Francisco, I will look for another one. But it's up to you!!! =))

An imposing hotel atop Nob Hill which is a quiet area with great views, very steep streets but worth the walk to get around on foot. Internally the reception and lounge/ bar area is very nice with a lovely ambience, buzzing infact, and, whilst the food was a bit expensive, it was perfectly fine. However, as you go around the hotel it starts to feel dated and 'faded grandeur' comes to mind. Parts of the hotel felt unloved and unused - perhaps they are! The gym on the lower level is not owned by the hotel and it did not feel inviting and our 17 year old son did not want to use it. Our bedroom had a fantastic view of San Francisco but, again, the room felt dated with worn furniture which attracted endless dust and just didn't feel 'special' which I would have expected of a hotel like this. The bathroom was fine with a great shower. If all the hotel followed on from the standard of the entrance area it would be amazing but there is a LOT of work to be done in every respect.

We wanted a special treat for ourselves as this was the first trip out of 2 years of COVID non-travel so we saved our points and $. The Fairmont overall was excellent but a few things did not make the grade! First, the excellent part, it is beautiful and great views! The service was professional, knowledgeable and high quality, that goes for room service, housekeeping, valet, concierge, front desk, dining, all excellent. We expected more from the rooms considering the high cost, the mini bar was empty, rooms needed a refresh, receptacles loose when you plug things in, AC did not cool properly, the beautiful view we paid a premium for was blocked by very dirty windows. Wall paper peeling in the bathroom, bathroom window painted shut. And then there is the $30.00 per day Urban Fee that no one can thoroughly explain. I understand all the taxes but this fee seems like another fee for no specific reason.

We've come to expect a lot less in recent days as the service level has dropped everywhere. If not for that, I would only give 2 stars. Beginning with check in, they had my name backward (first name as last) so they couldn't find my reservation. This in spite of the fact that I'm in their "club" and made my reservation that way. When we got to our room, it had not been cleaned well: there was a stalk of mostly eaten grapes on the floor. Also, we specifically chose this hotel because the windows open, and the window would not stay open. Our bellman (Tony) was one bright spot..he called down to get us a new room, which we eventually got. But no one answered the phone at the front desk. He ultimately used his radio and finally was able to take care of it. The room that we eventually took was fine (the window stayed open and no grapes on the floor). Also, a shout out to Tom, the concierge, who was able to get us reservations at one of our favorite restaurants even though it was fully booked. Lastly, (although I knew in advance), the parking is very expensive: $70 per day for valet! This may be standard now in SF, but you should be aware if you're driving. And the hotel does not offer a car to take guests around locally which used to be standard for high end city hotels.
