U.S. News Review

You know the Tony Bennett song, "I Left my Heart in San Francisco"? Well, he first sang it at this Nob Hill Fairmont property in 1962. Guests who opt to stay at The Fairmont San Francisco quickly realize how leaving one's heart here can be an easy thing to do. The hotel's lobby — with its towering columns, velvety furnishings and gilded accents — provides the backdrop to many a family photo op, and the customer service staff earns constant praise from recent visitors who say they were treated like royalty. The guest rooms here aren't quite as opulent, but they do offer excellent views of the San Francisco Bay and amenities such as pillow-top beds, Frette linens and Keurig coffee makers. Guests of the Fairmont are also welcome to take advantage of the on-site spa and health club before sitting down to dinner at Tonga Room (for Asian cuisine) or Laurel Court Restaurant (for fresh seafood).
