Overview

The Fairmont San Francisco made headlines even before its much-anticipated ribbon cutting in 1906 when the building was damaged in the Great Earthquake ahead of the hotel’s opening. Since then, the AAA 4-Diamond hotel became the historic host for meetings that would result in the formation of the United Nations. Known for its white-glove service and opulent design, the hotel is a popular choice for visiting dignitaries and celebrities. All the city’s cable car lines stop within two blocks of the hotel, making it easy to reach the Financial District, Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Guest accommodations are outfitted in royal blues and golds, and all include a marble bathtub. Interior rooms are furnished with queen beds, flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffee makers, while exterior rooms have city views and one king or two queen beds. Upgraded options include seating areas with sofa beds, desks and large windows looking at the skyline and bay. Suites have panoramic views of the water and landmarks like Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Transamerica Pyramid -- all have telescopes, so guests can sightsee from the comfort of their bedrooms. Suites are equipped with luxurious amenities like marble bathrooms, living rooms, Nespresso machines, Bose sound systems, balconies and walk-in closets.

Classic fine dining is served at the Laurel Court restaurant, the Caffe Centro is a relaxed coffee shop, and the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar is an iconic Asian restaurant designed to look like a tropical rainforest. The Tiki bar is a must-try for visitors, offering Polynesian food, mai tais and “surprise” thunderstorms. Tony Bennett first performed “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” in the hotel’s Venetian Room and is still a frequent guest.

Guests of the hotel have access to the Live Fit Gym & Wellness Center with fitness equipment, small-group classes and personal training sessions available. The adjoining spa offers massages, facials and acupuncture treatments.
