Editorial review:

This historic spot has a great location on top of Nob Hill and a staff that bends over backwards for guests. There are views of the bay, a European décor, and a beautiful lobby. Some critics felt the room quality varied greatly and recommended the newer wing. Cocktails in the famous Tonga Room are recommended.

                                                                      Breakfast appallingly expensive and poor value, had to wait over 15 minutes for a table, clearly insuffiicient staffing yet enforced 15% gratuity which was not deserved.

                                                                      Staff were either unhelpful or indifferent. I have not encountered this so consistently across all staff categories in a hotel of this calibre.

                                                                    • Older travelers

                                                                      The main restaurant (where breakfast was served) is a little limited, and not really great value for money.

                                                                    • Older travelers

                                                                      A slight disappointment that coffee was not available in the room.

                                                                    • Family with children

A few public praking garages are close by (2-10mins walk) and the fares vary, so we chose the less expensive one to park our mini van ($30/night). This is considered ok given the area we were in. Location is good, within the proximity to union square and chinatown, so we can walk to places (cause it's downhill). It's a different story when we walk back to the hotel! Oh, good thing they have in-room safe, so we can lock up our passports when we go out.

                                                                      No free breakfast, wifi or internet access. Breakfast I can understand why given the 5 star status. But wifi and internet are essential services these days. We stayed at a different hotel before checking-in at the fairmont, I was able to access my fb and emails without charges. I found fairmont a bit nickle-and-dime. They have a mini fridge, but it's stocked up with items for purchases only, the items are in this rack that if you remove or move, you will be charged immediately (I was told later on there is actually a 40 seconds leeway). So one night we have food we couldn't finish at dinner, we couldn't store in the fridge and had to throw it away. In terms of comfort of the room, all is perfect except of the pillows, they aree too sofe and I woke up with discomfort in my neck.

                                                                    • Single

We could not drink ours, have travelled to islands and expected one on par with Best. Had hoped to rekindle memories of Tonga RM but left soon after arriving as buffet was cheap and attracted budget early diners who were not quiet and relaxing. No happy hour a la carte treats available that weren't very expensive. These remarks are not about hotel but restaurant at Hotel which was our ONLY disappointment all else was wonderful.

It was a very good stay, even though it is really in a very residential neighbourhood. Nothing much is in walking distance, but the views are fantastic from the top of Nob Hill. The staff are really helpful and make you feel at home.

                                                                    • Older travelers

                                                                      The view from our room was incredible. The bed and pillows were really comfortable. The hotel decor is beautiful and the staff were very helpful. When they tried to get us a cab when were leaving to go to Biscuits and Blues, none were readily available so they had someone drive us in the hotel towncar so we didn't have to wait any longer.

                                                                      The only thing we didn't like about the hotel is that we cannot afford to stay there very often. This was a real splurge for us but it was worth it!

I wanted to take a break from the daily pressures of life and drove 5 hours from Bakersfield, CA to stay in your hotel in San Francisco. My wife and I had never been to this beautiful city and wanted stay in a nice hotel with, according to the advertisement, had wonderful views of the city from the room. I would be embarrassed to charge money for the room that my wife and I were given to stay in. Room 714 has a wall immediately outside the window. There is absolutely no view. We were charged more money than we've ever paid for a hotel room of any kind to stay in this room. We've stayed at the Venetian in Las Vegas for less. It was only after complaining to the front desk that we were given a different room for the second night of our stay. This will be our memory of staying at the Fairmont Hotel.

But I made a mistake on the days I required for the stay. I got the run around with the internet when I did call up.. But was graciously helped out to change my mistake by the reservations agent when I personally called the hotel. My daughter and I were also greeted by the Bell person, Front desk person, and concierge with utmost importance, it was the most amazing mother/daughter bonding time.. We are excited to get back to SanFran for another precious getaway, and for certain we will book The Fairmont!!!
