As one of the most prestigious luxury hotels in San Francisco, The Fairmont is the epitome of classical 5-star grandeur. Perched high above the city in the upscale Nob Hill district, this historic Beaux Arts-style hotel with large Corinthian-style marble columns in the lobby dates back to the early 20th century. With some of the most spectacular views in town, The Fairmont’s 591 rooms and suites are an exercise in restrained opulence, with spacious interiors, intricately crafted antiques and deep soaking marble bathtubs. Our favourite rooms are the sprawling Tower Suites which offer the best views of the city’s skyline and can be connected to a second bedroom for families or groups. The Fairmont's long history has taught its proprietors what every guest needs: a 24-hour business center for those who come to work, a first-rate fitness center and spa for travelers on vacation, and an opulent event rooms for weddings and delegations. The Laurel Court bar and restaurant offers stately fine dining featuring local organic ingredients, while the delightfully kitschy Tonga Room serves exotic Asian cuisine and tropical cocktails in a rainforest-inspired dining space. San Francisco's famous cable cars converge just outside the hotel, providing the most scenic and enjoyable way of visiting nearby attractions such as Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square. The Fairmont San Francisco is worth the indulgent price tag to step back in time to the Golden Age of grandeur.
