Reviewed 27 July 2015

Hotel is very nice, we stayed in a suite with a really amazing view of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge. The suite was nicely furnished and clean. Disappointed that wifi was not complimentary given what we paid per night for the suite.

The bar staff was overwhelmed and after 30 minutes brought the wrong drinks to the table and we never got another. The bedside lamp did not work in the room and the internet was slower than my LTE. The fitness area could use a remodel and upgrade and the overall feeling of the place was tired and worn out. There...

it's the Fairmont on Nob Hill...its elegant, old world charm is still stately and impressive. The rooms were refurbished yet still maintained a Victorian elegance with heavy draperies and handsome woods and marble tile. At this historic Grand Dame of San Francisco, our corner room faced Grace Cathedral and we awoke to the soft chiming of bells each morning. I'd...

Check in was easy and the staff was very professional and congenial. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The vibe of the hotel is very quiet but classy. The property is a little removed from Union Square but it's close enough that it is convenient yet it gives you enough distance to be quiet at...

We stayed three nights at the Fairmont during our first visit to San Francisco. It is a wonderful hotel, with heritage and in a great location, Nob Hill. The rooms are spacious and the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. I would certainly stay there again

This is one of the best hotels in the world and tops in San Francisco in my book. The staff is outstanding and definitely what sets it apart. Nob Hill can be a bit of a hike up and down the hills, but knowing the #1 California St bus helps. It's a landmark and wonderfully preserved. However, the rooms in...

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.
