Setting - nice and charming in an old world kind of way, big open room adjacent to the lobby, staff was friendly but not as attentive as I would have liked Food - appetizers were good, the crab cake was good but given the portions maybe not a great a value, sides were also very good, try the truffle fries....

Great buffet breakfast. Pastries, cereals, smoked fish, yogurt, omelet bar, Belgian waffles, fruit, smoothies, oatmeal, meats, eggs, potatoes, etc. was $35/adult and half-price for our child, so not inexpensive but very good! Service was great! Tried to go back the second morning, but there was a long wait at 9:45 am (first day we went at 9:00). You can also... More

We had a room immediately below the Crown and there was a wedding on while we were there so we had to have a sneaky peek after everyone had gone. It's amazing!!

We had Thanksgiving brunch here during our stay. They had a huge buffet with something for everyone. i was especially impressed that each item was labeled if it was gluten free or vegan etc which was especially helpful as i have celiacs.

We stayed here on our ATI Tour of California and were impressed by the room, amenities, restaurant and staff. As it on Nob Hill it looks over most of San Francisco and is handy to most local attractions.

We visited before a wedding the top floor of the The Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill . The personnel were extremely friendly and allowed us to travel to the top and take pictures as they set up for a wedding . It was cloudy and the pictures were thus cloudy also but the view what we saw was incredible .... More

Appetizers were creative and filling. Deviled eggs can be awful -- these were fantastic. Service was superb -- we had a bottomless vat of popcorn that was addicting.

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.
