“Scenic beauty”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The Fairmont Heritage was more that we expected. The location is perfect and staff tremendous. The rooms were well appointed and beds very comfortable. The views were amazing and every day had a surprise. The kitchen was an added bonus so we could bring food back to the room and enjoy the views.
The best part of the hotel is the people who work there. We had so many great tips and it really enhanced our visit. The hotel car made all the difference. The breakfast was a great start to the day and we enjoyed using the hotel bikes for our morning rides.
The surprise of the week was that we got to have bread, cheese and wine and watch Oracle win the Americans cup. The terrace was a great place to relax and unwind. First class all the way.

Room Tip: We loved waking up to a view of the bay, rm 416 , very quiet and on the end.

Green Features: Very aware of the environmental issues and what the hotel is doing. Recycling in room and many levels of lights. Great ideas.

Years ago when they were converting this to a hotel, I always wondered how it would turn out. The answer is; great. WIth a lovely decor, great outdoor patios to sip a glass of wine, awesome views, easy access to long walking trails and nice breakfasts.
We loved the sunset by the fireplace while looking out at the ocean. The car service is perfect for drop offs to restaurants and easy to get a taxi back.
....and of course the comfort of knowing chocolate could be found in countless combos just a few steps away.
You are close to everything in the core with a calm and gentle atmosphere to come home to.

Our favourite hotel in a 3 week Californian tour! That said, its more like serviced appartments with a concierge service than a true hotel experience. We booked an exquisite two bedroom appartment with views directly over the Bay and out to Alcatraz. The appartment was expensively furnished and extensively equipped, with kitchen and washing facilities - ideal for a family stay in San Francisco. The staff were super-helpful, booking us tickets for Alcatraz and the Giants, and generally looking after us really well. Location is also great, directly above Ghiradelli Square. There's no hotel restaurant - though breakfast is served in the lounge - but with so many restaurants and cafes right in the neighbourhood, it hardly matters. This appartment-hotel is a great set-up. Reccommended for the discerning traveller.

Fantastic hotel. Amazing views over San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Apartment had everything we needed, beautifully furnished and comfortable.

Ghirardelli Square area is lovely and very convenient for Cable Cars, Trams and walking about.

Would definitely staff here again.

Room Tip: We booked a Bay View room. Best views of Bay from top floor (4th).

The Fairmont Heritage Place is located near the "touristy" area of San Francisco, which was great for us since we were tourists! The front door staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierges were inconsistent. Clay Kubata was wonderful helping me make restaurant reservations, but another young woman concierge said she would help us plan our trip to Sonoma, but she never followed through. The rooms are large and have very nice kitchen facilities. This is good for families, but my husband and I were there by ourselves and felt the hotel was too family-oriented for what we wanted. There was the sound of small children running through the hallways early in the morning. Another negative about this hotel is that it does not have a restaurant. They do serve a continental breakfast in the lounge area each morning, but it was very basic and not that nice. I would only recommend staying at this hotel if you plan on using the kitchen facilities in the rooms. Also, don't stay here if you like rooms on upper floors. It's only two or three stories high.

Probably best place for hotel in San Francisco. It lies right accros the bay from Alcatraz, you can see Golden Gate from certain rooms and piers are in walkable distance. We were accomodated in suite which was room big enough for 4 adults (and probably even a bit more).
Couple things bothered me; as it is Fairmont I would not expect to hear from housekeeping that they have to clean your room now because in 10 minutes their shift is over. Also, breakfasts are made only from fruit, coffee and biscuits (this was probably the main weakness of the hotel). Even though it is part of Ghirardelli Square, hotel itself does not have own restaurant.

Room Tip: You can choose rooms overlooking bay- I strongly recommend that!
