This as an old hotel that has probably seen its share of make overs. The lobby is historical and the staff gratuitous and very intelligent. My room had been upgraded with a great bed and 42" tv. The challenge is that the bathroom is old and there is no separate tub and shower. The closer looks like it was designed...

Beautiful hotel in a great location. The room was gorgeous (newly renovated) and very spacious. Bonus points for the walk-in closet. Service was impeccable. A few things to nit pick at would be the lack of blackout curtains in the rooms, very small television and low water pressure in the shower. Other than that the hotel and room had all...

The Fairmont may be a little out of the way, but its worth it. The staff is friendly and accommodating, we got there early and they held our bags for us. If you're thinking about doing the parking included, do it, its worth it. The price includes valet, which is even nicer.

Can't say enough about the staff at the Fairmont. Anna and Rich were wonderful and so pleasant at check in. Charlotte was and excellent concierge and accommodate my bizarre request for red envelopes for Chinese New Year. The lobby smells of jasmine and gardenia...but not overpowering. The room was the perfect mix of modern and classic. My view was amazing...

The history and beauty of this hotel, Nob Hill and the surrounding water cannot be found many places. I highly suggest a weekend with someone special to experience this California delight. I stayed in one of the terrace suites which are equipped with traditional wrought iron furniture and plush cushions. I was comfortable sitting in the rain on this patio.

From the moment Mina greeted me, to follow up messages from Peter and Nick... through the charming service in the Lounge from Eric, it seemed like each individual felt they genuinely wanted my experience here to be exceptional.

Everything works, everything is clean and it is just such a reliable, solid hotel. It is worth asking for upgrades upon arrival as they are frequently available. Hotel food is very good and ... while not very cheap... it is very well and promptly served. Plenty of transportation from the hotel, great views, and excellent location on top of Nob...

The Fairmont San Francisco is an elegant journey back in time. Located at the top of Nob Hill, the views from the hotel itself and the surrounding area are incredible.

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.
