Have stayed here twice. The location and views are amazing. Room, service and food were excellent. The staff was very good. As a presidents club member I have stayed at Fairmonts all over north america, this is one is excellent.

This was our fist time staying at the Fairmont. We spent the weekend here for my husbands birthday/wedding anniversary. The hotel is beautiful with such rich history. If you stay here make sure you walk around the hotel and read about all the celebrates and presidents that have stayed at this magnificent hotel. The Tonga Room restaurant was closed when...

The Fairmont is a beautiful hotel on Nob Hill. If you are not familiar, it is not exactly in the major touristy areas, but they are easy enough to walk to. The hotel itself is fabulous, with many historic elements and photographs inside. We had a corner suite in the tower which overlooked the TransAmerica building, Bay Bridge and Chinatown....

I am so impressed by the performance of the staff and quality of restaurants inside the Fairmont. The only downside is all the homeless living in the nooks and crannies on the streets as you walk up and down the road. I main reason was to have a ball, the grand ball room is huge and beautiful the rooms are...

My husband and I stayed here during a trip down the coast. We stayed a couple of nights at this beautiful hotel. Elegancy, this place wears it well. We were giving a room on the corner ( large window on both sides-cool view) that overlooked the garden with a few palm trees, some of the city and the Pacific ocean....

The trip was actually in April, 2015, not 2016...but really wanted to share my experience here. Great hotel, great location, great facilities. The staff was just fabulous. We have received an upgrade, which only made the whole experience even better.

Stayed here for New Year's Eve, we were really looking forward to it. The hotel is beautiful and expansive. There's lots of nice areas to explore. Staff is very friendly and helpful. That's about where the good ends. The first room we were in was large and comfortable with a very large walk in, but the walls are incredibly thin....

Stayed here for 3 nights with wife and son. My expectations were met, though nothing wowed on our visit. Staff was very friendly, common areas were well maintained, and location was good. The actual rooms are fine but unremarkable. If renting a car, try to find a date that includes parking, as they charge a confiscatory $62+tax.

A spontaneous trip for a family of five to San Francisco was worth it. The sunny skies, beautiful city, and luxury accommodations at the Fairmont on Mason Street was fun for a get together before kids head off to college. The king suite on the 6th floor was roomy, clean, comfortable, quiet and a great gathering place for the family....

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.
