Absolutely the most beautiful and historic hotel in San Francisco. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and dual military retirements and we couldn’t have been happier with the Fairmont! We can’t wait for the Tonga Room to open back up!

Bummer
The Fairmont in SF on Nob Hill is a world class and very historic hotel.....just being on the property is impressive and spectacular. Our room had amazing views and actually was quite well appointed. Now for the bad: -The Windows were so dirty we could barely see the view. The hotel was very understaffed because of Covid; service was nonexistent and very few of the staff had a clue or for that matter cared. All restaurants, shops and bars were closed....not their fault, but that is a big part of the experience with a grand hotel such as the Fairmont....it killed it for us....finally the little things, no room service and not really concerned about it, housekeeping only every 3 days, and then when requested they promised service and then forgot, no laundry service and clueless on where to send us, no idea where to send us nearby for food, doormen don’t open your car door and barely helped with bags, although they were the most stalwart of all the employees. No exercise room however the exercise club in the building was open, just not to guests.....bummer! I get it....Covid....The Fairmont just seems to have given up and blames it all on the pandemic.

The hotel is gorgeous and amazing. We had a view of the bay which was amazing but the windows were very dirty. We could hardly see through them. Also, the shower had a big clump of hair in the drain which wasn’t nice, particularly in the time of COVID. Love the hotel but the cleanliness was a bit lacking and please clean the windows.
