Stayed for 1 night in August. It's a very classic hotel, the lobby is stunning. The view from our room was incredible (see picture), we did have to upgrade for that room type so be sure to specify upon check in. The style of the room is classic/comfortable. The bed was very nice - Had a good night sleep. The... More

Superlative service, beautiful décor. This is a top notch property all the way, with convenience to local attractions. Everyone is treated like a VIP, and the rooms are elegantly luxurious and more comfortable than your own home.

Great location (right next to the streetcars) and great service. Expensive yes but they do offer discounts during select periods. One is not too far from Market St nor the Pier. Also the Golden Gate Bridge is off in the distance but not that far away. Central location is the key here.

What a lovely old hotel! We just stayed a few nights with our kids and really liked it. Our room had a fabulous view, the beds were very comfortable, we also liked the location. One way down the hill Union Square. Another way down the hill Chinatown. 2 blocks to the Cable Car museum. Cable cars running every which way... More

We stayed at the Fairmont San Francisco for five days in late August. Because of the length of stay we qualified for a 40% off rate, which made it competitive with lesser-rated hotels, and affordable for our trip. The king bed is excepionally comfortable. I want the bed, and the pillows, and the comforter. Think JetBlue would let me check... More

I love the Fairmont chain because of how dog friendly they all are. This was the first one I ever went to, (been to lake louise and Vancouver and Chicago are booked within the next few weeks) but this one has an entire room service menu, JUST FOR DOGS LOL. The hotel staff was very accommodating and kind. Can't wait... More

We had an amazing city view and our room was very luxuriously comfortable and beautiful right down to the linen and bathrobes. The staff were very helpful and made us feel like royalty. We did enjoy one night looking at all the pictures in the Fairmont's hallways to see the history of the hotel.

If you like grand architecture and legendary historical context, this is a grand place to stay. It also is a great location to explore the city -- right on the cable car line, or even a short, but steep walk to the warf, china town, union square, and other great sites to see. As short two blocks away is the... More

I only have good things to say about the beauty salon at the Fairmont. I was there this past July for my best friend wedding and I was part of the wedding party. The ladies who were supposed to do our makeup and hair were over 2 hours late. I called the beauty salon and they were able to accommodation... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood 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.
