U.S. News Review

The Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, which spreads out in the Fisherman's Wharf neighborhood, provides a bit of luxury in the middle of San Francisco's action. Guests rave about the rooms, which feature full gourmet kitchens and plasma-screen TVs, as well as tasteful design features such as exposed-brick walls and dark wood floors. The Fairmont also gets lots of praise for its complimentary breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese reception in the evening. On breezy nights, visitors recommend lounging by the hotel's outdoor firepits, which provide a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. These amenities do come at a cost, but guests say if you can afford it, go for it. Members of the Fairmont President's Club can receive benefits like express check-in at this property.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“A short walk from the hustle and bustle of Fisherman’s Wharf proper, the Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square offers sweeping views of San Francisco and Alcatraz.”


“The classy home-away-from-home atmosphere spills into the game lounge throughout the day and out onto the newly renovated Club terraces, where guests congregate around fire pits and gaze at the bay.”
Award: Fodor's Choice


“Luxury vacation rental meets upscale hotel at the city's best, if most expensive, residence-style lodging. The Ghirardelli Square factory setting has plenty of character, while modern one-, two-, and three-bedroom units feel like designer model homes with top-of-the-line amenities.”
