We decided on a weekend getaway to the city to celebrate our little sons 3rd birthday. Upon driving up to the hotel entrance we were greeted cordially by the valet staff. Check in was a breeze. Our room was as promised. "Panoramic city views" in the tower with king bed. Room was clean, nicely decorated. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was...

Beautiful Grand Hotel. Beautiful rooms and very helpful, friendly servers. Only problem was elevators in main building were not working properly. Great location. Expensive but not obscene. Bar made super cocktails at moderate prices...by San Francisco standards. Best experience was the ambiance and service.

Spent 5 days at Fairmont. It's situated at the top of the hill so whilst it's a 10min walk to the city centre, expect a very steep way back up. Nonetheless the location is great with lots of places to eat/drink close by but suggest a taxi on return. The hotel has a number of bars/restaurants and the overall decor...

The Fairmont San Francisco is a historic and elegant hotel. It is located on top of Nob Hill and has commanding views of the city and the Bay. It was built at the start of the last century. The building survived the great earthquake of 1906 but was gutted by the ensuing fires. Today, the Fairmont is a world renowned,...

The hotel was simply an elegant establishment. The room was wonderful , room service quick , housekeeping kept everything replenished. The staff remained impeccable in demeanor and attentiveness in every aspect. The proximity to several tourist areas made it a very memorable experience for us. This place will not disappoint you.

I stayed at the Fairmont for 5 nights in February, 2017 for a conference at the Moscone. This was my 3rd time staying on Nob Hill. The first two times were at the Huntington and the InterContinental Mark Hopkins. The location is superb. You can't beat Nob Hill for location. I had heard great things about the Fairmont, and at...

Stayed here on a family vacation in August 2016 on the first of a 4 leg stay on the West Coast... There was nothing wrong as such with the hotel, I just hoped for a little more. Check-in was functional and the Hotel had stored some items I had ordered online for a couple of weeks which was great of...

Loved everything about this hotel! Wonderful staff, spacious and clean room, comfy bed, quiet, good food, good location! After a horrendous stay down the street, we moved up here and found heaven! Loved the history in the hotel but felt clean and luxurious!

Came here for a weekend so we could explore San Francisco! The hotel itself is beautiful, the fixtures and colours are amazing with beautiful golds and marble! The room we had was the basic one and was actually not bad considering. It was a connecting room though and we had some sick people next door we could hear coughing which...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
