Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What can be said besides everything was perfect. If your looking for an older, historical property with modern convenience, this is one place you should go at least once. Staff were always attentive, restaurant and bar were outstanding, room (and view of the harbor from the tower) was very comfortable. Location is great, inclduing at the intersection of all of the cable cars.

Hotel's Favourite
I selected this hotel as it was perfectly-place for a Book Signing Event... My view of Alcatraz, San Francisco Bay and Beyond were nothing-short-of Spectacular. But where the 'Rubber Meets`the`Road' for me was in the service levels by the team who work here. Even the Bellman has a history to share-there! And that wonderful lass behind the front desk, 'pinkie-promised' not to tell a single soul about my leaving my ammenities kits at the last hotel! She kindly topped me up with toothbrush, shave gear and other items I'd left behind in my wake... I'm up at 5 am every day to write, and I set up my laptop-nest in the massive lobby, surrounded by fabulous memorabillia of the Hotel, it's famed guests and more...

We were well taken care of here with an excellent room with a splendid view of the Bay. Lots of room to spread out, which we appreciated. It's a big corporate hotel with lots of room for conferences, but we were here to visit friends and it was also a good location for touring and sight seeing. Good service. here.

We stayed in a Golden Gate Suite with panoramic views of the bay and the city. Incredible! I arranged to have the florist spread a path of rose petals from the door to the bed and they made a large rose petal heart on the bed. There was a bottle of Martinelli cider for us with chocolate covered strawberries. I had a driver pick us up at the airport. Both he and the car were great. The concierge staff were fantastic. My wife was blown away and we had such a great honeymoon.

Cancun, Mexico8 contributions3 helpful votes
Beyond faded glory, dirty and unpleasant smells it really should be closed and properly renovated. Check in is slow and painful as there are not enough staff. Finding the elevator is a treasure hunt in itself and the elevators feel like they will fail at any moment. The room is adequate if you like something out of the 1950s that seems not to have been refreshed at all. The hotel is a metaphor for sad San Francisco, now a dirty, deserted and profoundly sad but once beautiful city. If you do have to travel avoid the Fairmont.

The hotel is very well located and centralised on top of a major hill. The room and bathroom were large enough to accommodate 4 people. Usual and classic confort of the beds. Fairmont spirit could be improved in the main lobby and Spa services are rather limited.

The staff at all levels were attentive and helpful. We love the rooms and location. Eating breakfast in the Laurel Court is an experience in itself. It rained a little while we were visiting, but of course each room had an umbrella. We will be back!

We travel often and try our best to pick luxurious hotels at a family-friendly rate. This place was AMAZING!! Wish we would remember every staff member’s names that helped us but Emmanuel did stand out at check in. He was kind, helpful and quick! Gave us an extremely helpful recommendation to get a last minute reservation at the Tonga restaurant inside (MUST DO WITH KIDS) and we got in on a Saturday night. Our only disappointment was the valet parking and rates. On top of generous tips we were surprised to find that nearby parking was available at less than half the rate. Also the valet people were not very patient with our children. I’ve reached out to the valet manager, Sal, to see if they can work with us on these charges. Don’t park at the hotel!

Pros: -Fantastic location in Nob Hill -Amazing views from Tower rooms -Food in restaurant was very good -Historic charm Cons: -Bellman lost our luggage initially, had to call multiple times to get luggage to our room -Pillows were noticeably flat though bed itself was comfortable. -Hotel/rooms feel somewhat dated, living a bit off the lore of the history of the hotel. -No one we encountered really seemed to enjoy working there. Nice place but wouldn’t stay again.

Spent Easter with my family and it was really amazing. I would go again and make it a tradition. Staff is welcoming and professional throughout the hotel. We stayed in a Signature Room and it had the most beautiful view of the bay. The rooms were comfortable and clean.
