“Great Location if You Want to be Near Fisherman's Wharf”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We booked a two-bedroom suite here in this former chocolate factory because we were two families. The suite was VERY spacious and included a sitting room with an additional pull-out sofa bed and kitchen, fully supplied with dishes, utensils, etc. We were on the second floor and had access to a full deck complete with 24/7 gas fireplace and an unbeatable view over the SF BAY and Alcatraz.

This is an expensive way to do SF [suite was over $1000 a night PLUS a hefty room tax - SF is an expensive city to visit!!] but since we shared the costs, it worked out OK. There is free WIFI and coffee pot in the room, parking overnight costs $50 [we mostly cabbed it, also not inexpensive].

The staff is absolutely stellar in every way and very friendly and helpful.

The only downside is the breakfast buffet [included in the room rate] which is mediocre at best and quite small and in a cramped part of the breakfast room. There is no restaurant in this hotel and it shows - stale pastries, sterno-warmed bacon and egg wraps. But this can be overlooked since they do try hard here.

I might also just add that the windows could have used a washing but maybe they hadn't done a "spring" cleaning yet.

Room Tip: Probably want to be on the side with a view of San Francisco Bay, otherwise, you're on the stree...

We booked a two bedroom apartment with views right out to Alcatraz, the accomodation was first class and worth every penny. Staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble and very professional. Location is great also. We arrived to a treat of locally made cupcakes for my Husband's birthday and also some famous Ghirardelli chocolate. Everything you could need is in the apartment, we slept very well.

Room Tip: Choose one looking to the water with your own private patio at the front, it has a great feeling of...

It doesn't get better than his when in San Francisco. Start with location.. Ghiradelli Square!! Fabulous suites, quiet, luxurious with incredible servie and a car to drive one to SF's best attrations. A delicous breakfast, afternoon wine hour, newspaper and that incredibly friendly staff!! The bedrooms, the bathrooms, living space, absolut perfection! I stayed here on my birthday in February in a two bedroom suitem with two girlfriends, I wish I could have stayed for a month. Considering the prices for average hotels in SF, this is a bargain, can't wait to return!! Thank you Fairmont!

This property is amazing. I love the complex it is part of with shops and restaurants. If you want In and Out burger, it's close by, if you want to dine at an amazing restaurant in Gary Danko, it's close by. Everything is close. The water front is beautiful. The staff is awesome. They helped us with plans and they had bikes on site that we borrowed to ride to the Golden Gate bridge which was an easy and beautiful ride. Their house car took us places which was convenient and safe. The properly is impeccably clean and beautiful. The two patios with fireplaces are wonderful and comfortable. We had a room that faced the water and main shopping area and it was noisy at night. There were loud people returning from a night of partying congregating around the shops and the open area and they were noisy until 2am or later. I should have called someone right away but I didn't hoping they would go away and they didn't. So, in essence, that's the only reason I don't give this 5 star. The view we had was amazing but if that's what people do in this complex, be prepared for some noise and call someone instead of just waiting.

Room Tip: The views can be great but I'm concerned about the partygoers congregating nearby that can get n...

I stayed in one of the residences and I was absolutely amazed, the location is just perfect, right in Ghirardelli sqare a short walk away from the piers, surrounded by excellent shops and restaurants and my room looked out to Alcatraz. Its a really safe area at any hour. The room itself was fantastic, it had lots of character and really felt homely despite being so spacious, the iPads were an excellent touch too. Everything was clean and the room was very well supplied. The concierge is also very helpful here and I recommend taking full advantage of the hotel's free car. I can't wait to go back some day.

Fantastically located hotel (converted chocolate factory) in walking distance to the wharfs and local attractions. Contemporary and stylish apartments with every mod-con you could need. Very helpful and attentive staff. Concierge greatly helped us with our sight-seeing plans. Apartment was almost too good to leave and enjoy the sights! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San-Fran.

The location was great with bus and cable car stops in front of hotel. The unit was roomy with a small kitchenette. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was also a short walk to restaurants, the wharf and cable car turn around. Would stay there again if the opportunity again. Lovely place
