“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We would go back to the Fairmont Ghiradelli Square in a flash if we were able to. Our apartment was incredibly spacious and clean, and comfortable. The staff were some of the most helpful that we came across on our US trip, and we particularly appreciated the complimentary car shuttle around the Bay area. The nearby restaurants were great and breakfast at the hotel was plentiful in quantity and number of choices. We had a city view room but as we were out most of the day this was not an issue. Next time, we'll try a bay view room.

Fairmont Heritage Place is a residence club which mean on site amenities are limited but in exchange you get spacious accommodations to have quiet time away from the kids or vice versa. But amenities are not necessary when you can walk/run/bike the 3 miles to Golden Gate Bridge or sit on the expansive private deck to watch the fireworks away from the crowds. These are front row seats for fireworks because the residence is steps from Aquatic Park. You can swim in the Aquatic Park along side the hardy SF natives. The sandy beach is a great spot for the kids to play and the adults to people watch.

Across from the residence in the plaza is McCormick and Kuletto's, they have incredible seafood and more great views. The bar is cozy and serves quick bites better than most hotel restaurants. Close by are many other great dining choices.

If you want to cook in the gourmet kitchen, Alito's, is the go to place for fresh Dungeness crab and is only a few blocks way. Go early, they only keep morning hours. You really do not need to cook or keep food on hand with the residence providing breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese.

The only real draw back is the many stairs like the rest of SF. If you have mobility issues be sure to ask where all the elevators are located. Transportation options abound from the free house car service to the trolley to the free/rental bike choices.

Room Tip: Each condo/suite unit is designed to provide different amenities. Let the staff know your preference...

Green Features: For owners, house keeping comes only every 3 days which is great for the environment and privacy. Daily maid service is upon request. Check with the hotel if you are renting.

Fairmont Ghiradelli Square Huge Rooms and Amazing Views! Stayed February 2011.

Extremely delightful staff, complimentary Cadillac Escalade hotel transportation around hotel, amazing views of the Bay and Alcatraz, huge 2-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, fully equipped kitchen, living, apartment-sized stacked washer & dryer, complimentary can of coffee, all in the heart of Ghiradelli Square. We stayed during President's Day weekend and had the cable cars, shops and piers within walking distance. We did utilize the complimentary Escalade to a recommended nearby brunch cafe.

The location is ideal to the stated areas, the hotel staff rated 5 stars for customer service and our room was much larger than I expected. Complimentary continental breakfast is included for all guests. It's enough to get your energy before the daily tourist activities.

What a place! Beautiful apartment, fantastic views, great location, helpful staff. We were upgraded from a city view suite to a bay view (thank you). The spacious suite was perfect for our family group, the beds were comfortable, the showers efficient. One small point was that, although there were plenty of bath towels, flannels and small hand towels, there were no towels of an appropriate size to use as a turban on my wet hair.

My daughter used the laundry facilities but the tumble drier kept stopping a couple of minutes into its cycle resulting in us having to carry wet clothes with us. This did not stop our enjoyment of this superb apart hotel. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. all-in-all a great find.

Second time we stayed here and although there were some changes to offerings from our stay in 2009 when hotel was brand new, it is still a wonderful home away from home when visiting San Francisco. The suites are really like condos with modern fully equipped kitchens. Ours was a two bedroom. Both with king beds. The one surprise was the second bedroom didn't have a bureau, so the person using that room had to live out of her suitcase for three nights. The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast each morning and in the afternoon, wine and cheese. There is a courtesy car which we took advantage of. Staff is top notch and friendly. Location is great ... easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf or in the opposite direction to Fort Mason Park.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms over looking Ghirardelli Square in the back. These are much quieter.

We recently stayed at this hotel for the 3rd, maybe 4th time. A two night stay at the beginning of the trip and a 3 night stay at the end. We started with a 3 bedroom suite (by the elevator, so not the quietest). We love the comfort and location of the hotel. We ended our trip with a 2 bedroom on the 3rd floor REAR corner room (in case you're wondering what the 3R on the elevator means). I would normally give this hotel 5 stars but, due to a potentially alarming incident which brought the rating down in our minds is when our 12 year old son's friend (who was traveling with us) became separated from us on a biking trip through Golden Gate Park. We were disappointed the hotel refused to pick him up when he called for help. Bottom line: independent kid, rented bikes, he got separated from us, he returned bike to shop, called hotel who let him know he was out of the 2 mile radius, so he walked what he thought was 2 miles in whatever direction some stranger pointed him toward, asked a (very young) woman to call hotel, hotel STILL said he was out of the radius, so she was kind enough to call a cab, pay for cab, gave her # to him to confirm he got there safely. I'm not incredibly happy the hotel did not recognize a child was in need of help. We gave him our cell phone numbers, which he promptly lost, apparently, but he remembered the hotel name and location. Shame on the hotel for this incident, which I will never tell his mother about, at least until he is off and married. I would stay at the hotel again, though. The housekeepers, Frances the driver (when you can get him), and Teddy at the front door are all terrific.

Room Tip: We love the rooms with the R on the elevator (2R, 3R, 4R). They are on the back side of elevator, so...

Suites were huge and extremely comfortable. Location is superb - it was lovely sitting out in the patio overlooking Ghiradelli Square.

Breakfast served at the executive lounge was nice - plenty of fresh fruit and a variety of cheeses.

Pet-friendly too!
