    I thought this was a terrific value for what we paid. The hotel lobby is straight from a movie (in fact, a number of films were shot at the hotel - including one of my favorite Sean Connery scenes in The Rock). It's a glamorous place that has fantastic views of the bay. We could see the Golden Gate from our window (15th floor, tower). With all the hills, the walks from the hotel are not for the un-fit, but cabs are readily available. The staff was extra-friendly, and every recommendation the concierge made played out beautifully. I highly recommend!

    Its one of the best hotels in SF. I have never stayed here, but been here many times. I have eaten here at their restaurant for a graduation dinner and it was excellent. It is a landmark of SF.

    Gorgeous views. Grand and old world service. Probably one of my favorite hotels in the city. The Fairmont is located on the top of Nob hill (which we jokingly refer to as snob-hill), which is a beautiful neighborhood. The California line tram is right along the route. If you aren't physically fit, you are going to need the tram as it is a steep climb up from the downtown shopping area. For the physically fit, china town, russian hill and even fisherman's wharf are all within a 15-20 minute walk.

    In the style of the "Grand Hotel" the Fairmont lives up to every expextation!!! All of the staff was excellent, anticipating our every need before we knew we needed it!! Food was 4 star...rooms were fabulous, with thick bath-robes & heated towel racks. Our room seemed as if we had our own room-service attendant. The Fairmont must be what Heaven will be like!!!!!

    Gorgeous Hotel. It is such a treat to stay in these rooms. I felt transported into Victorian times with the high vaulted ceilings and the huge bed. The rooms here are practically the size of an SF apartment! At the rate I received for the night, you can't go wrong with a little bit of glitz and glamour at the Fairmont!

    The Fairmont is a lovely historical hotel in San Francisco. As with many hotels in San Francisco, it is an older building, so expect some wear and tear typical of older hotels. However, they do a decent job of maintaining the building.

    Loved the Christmas/Holiday decorations! It truly felt like the holidays in there with the life-size gingerbread house. Intercontinental had free cider and cookies for guests, though.

    Dear God, if Heaven is anything like the Fairmont hotel, I shall change my ways for good and move toward the light.

    In all seriousness, the Fairmont may be the most beautiful hotel I've ever been in. With a grand lobby and views from the top of Nob Hill, it's artistry simply cannot be beat. The Tonga Room, which I suspected would be a tacky rendition of the islands I grew up on, was actually stunningly beautiful. Even if you aren't staying here, pop in for a bit and experience the elegance.
