The fairmont was a beautiful hotel! I loved the history that literally lined be hallways, they have tons of photos of VIP guests they've had along the years (think royalty, presidents and some very famous movie stars). Beautiful, grandiose lobby and our room had a beautiful view of the whole city. Great Nob Hill location.

I just returned from a 5 day mother & daughter trip to San Francisco where we decided to treat ourselves to opulent luxury and the Fairmont did NOT disappoint! We arrived prior to check-in time so our room wasn't ready and the Desk Clerk couldn't have made things breezier! He turned our bags over to the Bell Desk, locked our...

Impeccable service, lovely room. This is what 5 stars is about. Definitely recommend it! The room darkening shades are perfect. The tea selection is wonderful. The room is large, with a great desk for getting in a bit of work. Definitely join The President's Club, though, to avoid wifi charges and take advantage of a complete spa like gym inside...

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.
