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.

    At check-in I was upgraded to a tower room on the 10th floor with great views, at no extra charge. I was also allowed to check-in at 11am when I arrived vs the stated 3pm check-in time. My original room had no windows, judging from their comment that it was an "internal room." I'm sure that I would have enjoyed the Fairmont experience from the overall grandeur of the hotel, but not my specific accommodations, if I had remained booked in my original room. When they realized that I had never stayed at the hotel before & that I was a business traveler from nyc, they chose to upgrade me. I got lucky.

    Beautiful hotel, very impressive spacious rooms. Central location. Probably one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. Would definitely recommed this hotel.

    Comfortable, well-appointed room

    The first room offered was inadequate. My husband had to request another with "a city view" --which was what we originally reserved. After consulting with his manager, desk clerk complied. The windows were dirty, compromising the "city view."

    The hotel was in an ideal location just a couple of blocks from Union Square. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    The building, the service, the location

    Breakfast too pricey

    The Fairmont is an elegant, beautiful and a peaceful retreat in the city. The service is amazing and the staff takes extra good care of you. From Geoff and Rich at the front desk. To Juan and William as the doormen. The food in their on-site restaurants are culinary perfection. Room service is delicious especially the coffee and banana bread in the morning. I adored the beds and slept like a baby. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. Jamie -Alabama

    The city views, although we were on the 2nd floor and the view was partially blocked by the Fairmont tower.

    The dining room (Laurel) - Harris Ranch (supposedly 14 oz.) rib steak had the bone removed and was served with an overly salty sauce. The steak was overly pricey. Also, meal service was quite slow although the dining room was not at all busy during our visit. The city views were less than expected based on online photos.

  • Older travelers

    The concierge service, Charlotte in particular. The Centre, if that's the correct name of the little breakfast place on the corner, which provided a nice alternative to the very expensive breakfast in the main part of the hotel. The opulence of the lobby. The service of beckoning a cab for us. The historical decor of the place, and general cleanliness. The polite staff, from maids to delivery men.

    The room was a little smaller than I thought it would be for the price we were paying. Also our view would have been better on other Golden Gate side. The soap, those thin, less than an inch squares, should be larger, and more than the two we had. As to the question below, I'd recommend the location, but not having a basis for comparison, I can't say the Fairmont is better than other Nob Hill hotels, which I'd have to to make a recommendation.

    The staff, especially the Concierge desk, was very helpful. The public spaces were very attractive, and the location made it easy to get to many points in the city. The cafe, Cafe Centro, was a handy place to get coffee and a pastry in the morning without having to pay for a grand dining experience, as is the case in many fine hotels.

    My room showed signs of wear and tear--several stains on the carpet, marks on the wall, worn upholstery. For a room at this price point, the level of quality seemed poor. Internet service was an additional $13.95 per day, again, surprising in a hotel of this calibre. There was no coffepot in the room.

    Beautiful building and friendly staff.

    The first room we were given was next to an elevator shaft, which made a lot of noise each time the elevator went up and down, however they did move us. Even then though, the soundproofing on the doors is poor and you can hear every noise in the corridor outside, which does not make for a good night's sleep. Incredibly expensive minibar / room service menu. No complimentary water or tea/coffee making facilities in the room, the least you'd expect from a 5 star hotel.

    I had a mouse in my room and freaked out and never felt comfortable after that. My botfriend did capture it and flushed it down the toilet but I just never knew if thre was any more of those little critters.
