This is the kind of hotel that make you happy, from check-in to check-out. What an experience to be is this historic hotel for one full week. The location is great and with some planning and resistance you can reach all city areas.

I have traveled and stayed at many hotels. The Fairmont in SF is amazing. The staff is Professional, kind and a personal touch. Rooms are beautiful. Tall ceilings and soft linens. Location on top of Knob hill. Cable car near by. Stay a few days and enjoy all the hotel has to offer.

Great overall experience, but for a luxury hotel with the goal of taking care of their guests it would be nice to not feel "nickel and dimed" by having to pay for WIFI in the guest room. Stayed for 2 nights in a junior suite, but went down to the lobby to download files. Had to stay at the Embassy... More

the rooms are tacky. it looks like the decorator bought everything from JC penny and homegoods. They are outdated, cheap and tacky. There is too much personality in the room.

Old place. Very small room. Did not provide slippers, toothbrush until asked. Service was slow and inconsistent. Coffee maker and desk lamp was not working at all. It was nice of them to grant us a late check in at 1.

We did not actually stay at The Fairmont, only strolled through the lobby and adjoining areas ... but I would love to stay here next time we are in San Francisco.

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.
