In 1907, the Fairmont San Francisco first welcomed guests to its stylish accommodations.

Today, it is underneath the AccorHotels umbrella. Each Fairmont venue features opulent decor and ornamental accents that reflect the hotel's history and natural setting. Although properties under the Fairmont banner showcase their own expression of artistry, each hotel uniformly reflects the brand's excellence through top-notch customer service and high-end amenities, including on-site spas, fitness facilities and business centers.

    Fairmont San Francisco
    San Francisco, CA
    0.7 miles to city center
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    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, velvet 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 the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar (for Asian cuisine) or the Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar (for fresh seafood). Visitors can also get around downtown San Francisco easily during their vacations here, as a trolley stops right outside the property.

    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. On breezy nights, visitors recommend lounging by the hotel's outdoor firepits, which provide a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Though this Fairmont outpost lacks some of the traditional amenities of neighboring hotels, including an on-site restaurant or spa, it does offer in-room dining from surrounding restaurants, as well as access to a 24-hour health club and in-suite massage services. These amenities do come at a cost, but guests say if you can afford it, go for it. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels program can receive benefits like express check-in at this property.
