Fairmont San Francisco

Fairmont San Francisco is known for its collection of luxurious, one-of-a-kind suites, and as the site of historic firsts and global events. An industry pioneer in service and environmental stewardship, the five-star flagship is an award winner in every category worldwide.

Built at the turn of the last century and opened in 1907, the Fairmont is one of the oldest hotels in the city. (The similarly grand Palace and Westin St. Francis are the only older hotel properties in San Francisco.) A lot has happened since 1907, of course, and the Fairmont now caters largely to business travelers. For leisure travelers, that adds up to some trade-offs. On the one hand, you get the quality and consistency of a luxury chain property; on the other, it’s a less-than-leisurely atmosphere in a large (606 rooms) impersonal setting.

One thing that never changes, however, is location, and the Fairmont’s still reigns supreme. The massive original building, neoclassical columns and all, holds court over ritzy Nob Hill — and thus the rest of San Francisco — like a castle atop a mountain. Stepping outside the stately entrance onto Mason Street, you can almost feel those poor saps at the Ritz gaze up in envy from two blocks down the hill. The perch provides more than a feeling of superiority. If you book a room in the tower, you don’t even have to leave your room — views from these rooms are stunning.
