Great location too!

Posted Apr 10, 2014
We expected the hotel would be very nice for our extended weekend stay. We were in a 2 bedroom with the kids. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed it outside on the upper patio What was unexpectedly great was the location. A short walk up Polk and you are at Lombard street and few more blocks and you're in the heart of Russian Hill with restaurants and small shops. We walked home from a great Italian lunch, down Columbus. That was after we took the street car from end of Hyde-- just across from the hotel and got off in the middle of Chinatown. The other convenient aspect is that the hotel is 2 blocks from end of Van Ness which will take you right across town to the 101 freeway for any Southern destination.

Perfect Family Hotel with Great Location

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Perfect hotel for family as they have apartment like rooms. The hotel has a great location walking distance to the Fishermen Wraf with a nice view if you select the rooms with view. The staff and service are also excellent.

Beautiful hotel located in a great location!

Posted Feb 12, 2014
Pros: We liked the staff! They added to our experience visiting California. Our suite was beautiful! The rooms were very well appointed.
Cons: Breakfast could be better. The only other thing that needs to be improved is the toilet paper. It needs to be a two or three ply.
Location: Great location to visit Alcatraz. Take a tour bus to see the city. Visit historic places along the way. Dine in fine restaurants. Enjoy the people!
We enjoyed our stay at Ghirardelli Square! The Fairmont Heritage Place was a fabulous hotel with attentive,friendly staff. The service was outstanding as was the staff. We can't say enough about their warm, friendly manner. We loved staying in this hotel!

Quality top to bottom

Posted Jan 7, 2014
Pros: Quality and service
Stayed over Christmas with the family in a city suite, and just loved the comfort level; bedding/robes, audio/video, kitchenette, double ensuites, house car, all superb. Wouldn't hesitate to return. In fact, it will be hard *not* to return when we next visit SF.

Gorgeous hotel at Ghirardelli Square.

Posted Dec 8, 2013
Pros: Staff, hotel amenities and location.
Cons: More variety with their continental breakfast.
Location: Located at Ghirardelli Square. Overlooking the bay. Views of Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Close to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. Cable car access
My family and I had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Fairmont Heritage. All personnel from the concierge to the valets were so kind and gracious. They did everything possible to anticipate our needs and accommodate any requests we had. The room was simply amazing. Had a fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, washer/dryer and entertainment system. They provided me with a high chair, crib and play pen for my son. My family and I immediately fell in love with the place. We were there just a few days, but it began to feel like home right away. They also had a car service in which they would drive you anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel for drop-off and pick-up. This was very useful when we would needed to make a quick run to the grocery store. There are so many other things I could mention which made the whole experience far exceed my expectations, but they are too much to list. You have to experience it for yourself.

San Francisco Trip

Posted Nov 16, 2013
The hotel was great!! For the price it offered great value. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a luxury SUV that will take you and pick you back up within a 2 mile radius of the hotel (Union Square included). The suites had full size kitchen/bar, large bathroom and even had a washer/dryer in the room which overlooked Ghiradelli Square. They offer free breakfast in the morning and in the afternoon wine and cheese, but they do not have a restrauant on site. There are several restaurants just steps away though. Great place and would stay there again.

Great location - but confirm what you booked!

Posted Oct 31, 2013
Pros: location
Cons: our room needed a little tlc............maybe touch up the paint (especially the baseboards)
Location: Quick to drive down Lombard, right next to Fort Mason, near the Presidio and Fisherman's Wharf is within walking distance.
***NOTE*** We booked thru Expedia and had confirmation on a 3 King bedroom/ 3 bath room. The hotel does not have 3 bed rooms with all king beds! They hotel apologized for the confusion thru Expedia but is was an adjustment having 2 twins in one of the rooms. Great location and awesome staff. Pricey but where else in the city can you get a spacious apartment type room with cleaning service and breakfast each morning?

Incredible weekend in San Francisco

Posted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: Quiet and relaxing.
Cons: Spa facility.
Location: The location was in the heart of Wharf and Ghirardelli Sqare. It allowed us to watch the excitement of the city but relax in the quiet of the facility
We were looking for a quiet weekend in San Francisco to end our week in wine country. I was hesitant to stay in the tourist district but had heard good things about Fairmont Ghiradelli. It was everything and more. Every detail was spot on. The people, facility, location were perfect. From the moment we arrived, we needed for nothing.

Great staff and hotel, we felt at home.

Posted Aug 24, 2013
Pros: They made us feel at home.
Cons: They need to get a better room service menu.
Location: Fisherman wharf. Pier 39 is a great way to spend a relaxing evening, shopping and dining.
They were prepared for our arrival, already knew us by name upon arriving. At any time of day or night they were willing to assist us.
