Excellent place to stay especially in SF. The staff is as professional as they come and attentive in all areas. One surprise was when a bellboy showed up With extra robes which Indid not request as there were already robes in the room. That was an unexpected treat. As they say,"It's the little things".

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I've stayed at the Fairmont San Francisco for years, as well as the Mark across the street and Stanford Court. However, I always come back to the Fairmont. I love this Nob Hill location - it is a cable car stop which is nice for tourists, but it is a bit away from the hustle & bustle of the kitschy... More

Too long of a walk from elevators to lobby. Room service pizza was way overpriced and average at best. Breakfast buffet was overpriced and what 5 star hotel tells u to come back in 15 minutes for a table for breakfast when 4 seat tables are open but u are a party of 2. Rooms were okay....views were excellent.

Located at the very top of Nob Hill, if you are walking anywhere in the city it's a bit of a hike, but I like the exercise. I arrived here for an overnight conference. The lobby is large and ornate, very classic and has a great deal of history. Arriving at 11:30 I was told that my room was not... More

There are places to take photos even from the outside as well as the inside.The moment you walk in already elegance and the service is good as the door bell open the door. The restaurant also quite reasonable too. There is a side door for short cut too.

We are big fans of the Fairmont group hotels but the Fairmont San Francisco is in a class of its own compared to the other hotels we have stayed in in the US and Europe. The hotel is pure class steeped in history and so full of things to see that it is worth the visit for that reason alone.... More

The lobby and event rooms are stunning. The service staff were all top-notch from doormen, bellmen, front desk, restaurant, housekeeping, and concierge (well, 1 out of 2, see below). The Laurel Court was perfect for breakfast and afternoon tea - and I mean AFTERNOON TEA. Our room (1704) was in the new tower, floor 17, which gave a great city... More

Wonderful hotel with comfortable rooms, elegant common areas, delightful breakfast restaurant (Laurel Court), kitschy and trendy tiki bar (Tonga Room), fabulous views and attentive service. The bed was heaven!

Pricey and worth it. We stayed for 2 nights 28-30July2016. The Fairmont is centrally located at the top of Nob Hill in in the middle of SF, Victorian Era decor, older stylish hotel. The service was very good, check in was easy. Valet was very pricey $60/ day. Stayed with my wife in the 'tower' on the 20th floor with... 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.
