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.

We booked a two night stay at this Fairmont hotel since we quite enjoy Fairmont properties and have been staying at Farimont all over the world, including the famed Savoy palace. Little did we know, we stumbled upon the very first Fairmont hotel. It all started here. Upon

Excellent stay for a grandmother and granddaughter. The treatment of my granddaughter and her 2 American Girls was amazing and wonderful, their own chairs at the table and beds, blankets, robes and slippers for the dolls. Who could ask for more?

We wanted fabulous views so we booked a Tower Suite which I have to say was fabulous with views looking over the city, Alcatraz and both bridges. In addition to the views the suites are spacious and very modern. The entrance to the hotel is very grand and the staff incredibly

First, nothing at the Fairmont is free, not even water. We had room service for breakfast or went to a local spot called "The Plow" and that place is phenomenal for breakfast.

Yeah, did all that. Hence my conscious decision to go ahead and use the tourist forum to discuss my issue, if only to let people know I don't mean to give this property all the lowest marks possible (stars) on all counts after praising their good service! I'm knocking myself out here trying to volunteer my time to making it right. Failing all attempts. As I wrote, I get an error page after completing the Delete action perfectly. But thanks for taking the time yourself, Alan! I appreciate the effort.
