With a price point between Hotel Nikki SF and Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, I was expecting more. But this was adequately fun with family. Not impressed enough to come back tho sadly .... the three cashier set up at the beginning was very HomeTown Buffet ghetto style. It made the experience a bit too mass produced-like. Didn't go well... More

I paid $500 as deposit during my stay at this hotel. Its a month today since I checked out, but they are not refunding the deposit. Since I am from India, I cant keep on calling them. And they don't reply mails.

I failed to mention his name in the previous review for the hotel. However I had a wonder server by the name of Mario on 9/25/16. He was fantastic!

The brunch was more than anyone could eat at one sitting, but most impressed because it had so many choices for non-meat eaters like me. Very good, well priced.

Spag Pomodoro was a fab take-out. Mom came into town and we ate in restaurant. She ordered the chicken dish- DRY. The carrots were hard...and the brocolini was unpleasant.............my Caesar Salad was okay but not phenomenal.......the bread they served was hard! Ha. The service was great though.

First, if you want to go there for a special occasion like Mother's Day, make sure you book. I took my mother and my family to the Fairmont for Mother's Day 2015. We were seated promptly, and the brunch buffet was very good. All the dishes we tried were tasty and fresh, and the service was as to be expected.

I had read other reviews regarding slow service and mediocre food. I had good service, and for a hotel buffet, the food was good. The French Toast was fluffy and hot. The fruit was very fresh. I wasn't here on Sunday, but Friday. I thought $25 was pretty decent given the beverage service. I got a juice to go, which... More

I found this Sunday Brunch just ok for the price. I have had fabulous buffet breakfasts at other venues this was really average for the price. The food was good but not special.

Ate breakfast every day while staying here. Good selection of everything. Noticed Sunday brunch to be very gourmet.

I have stayed at the Fairmont many times and I must say that they need to remodel their main building. Decor and rooms look like they have not been updated in 40 years. You do get clean rooms with plenty of space though and you just can't beat the location.
