“Great option for families”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

This is an excellent establishment - quality fitout with the usual Fairmont service. Apartment style accommodation in addition to light complimentry breakfast, wine and cheese from 3 to 5 and complimentary hotel car for journeys up to two miles. For our family of seven this was a cheaper and far more practical option than three hotel rooms with the book 3 nights and get fourth night free option. Good location near most ferries, Hyde St. Cable Car and on mjor bus routes.
If you have a couple of hours to spare visit the ship museum at the bottom of Hyde St. Children under 15 are free and adults are $5- the large ferry boat and the fully rigged clipper are outstanding.

Room Tip: If money is no object go for a bayview room, preferably level 3 or above. Some rooms on level 2 are...

These serviced apartments are in a great location, and are very well furnished and maintained. The breakfast was described to us (Europeans) as continental but we thought it was much more substantial than that and very healthy (although they did offer some delicious pastries too).

There's a farmers market on Sundays at Fort Mason which has high quality fruit, vegetables, cheeses, nuts, flowers etc (I didn't see any meat). The quality is much better than the nearest supermarket.

We stayed on the fourth floor with a view toward Alcatraz, and it was very quiet at night; much quieter than most of San Francisco.

There is a generous supply of good quality toiletries which are replaced daily. And lots of towels.

My suggestion for improvement is that the shower needs to be stronger and in 414 they need to add a cabinet into the bathroom where the gap is. The food served at the evening drinks is a bit meager.

I would definitely return.

Our family stayed here during December 2013. We searched for an apartment that would be big enough for our family of 5, as we were not too keen to move into separate hotel rooms.
We liked:
* The great location of the Fairmont: we were right in the wharf area with all its tourist attractions.
* The magnificent views over the bay: we woke up every morning with Alcatraz and the rest of the bay framed like postcards through our windows.
* The staff at the Fairmont: the whole team was very professional, efficient and helpful; nothing seemed to be too much trouble at all.
* The apartment itself was very comfortable and convenient. We specifically liked the washer and dryer in the apartment, free wi-fi, televisions, stereo systems, etc. etc.
* The breakfasts were simple but sufficient.
* The small gym was probably better equipped than anything else that we have seen at other establishments over the years.
* The outdoor fireplace and patio was sublime; we enjoyed sipping wine in the evenings while snuggling up against the fire and enjoying the views.
* The complimentary vehicle service to destinations within a 2 mile radius of the Fairmont is just soooo convenient.
We disliked: absolutely nothing!

Room Tip: Rooms with a bay view are the bomb!

This was our second stay at this wonderful establishment, and we will definitely be back. A great place for family and friends especially during the holiday season as it wasn't as crowded. Everything was wonderful, clean, spacious (we had the 3 bedroom), and quiet. The staff was exceptional, they were friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back next December..... Cheers!

Room Tip: The 3 bedroom slept 8 comfortably, even the sofa sleeper had a good mattress on it.

This hotel apartment is sumptuous and fabulous. It had everything we needed, particularly the daily need of laundry facilities for our cycling wear. It is situated in a really pretty area and is close to plenty of good eateries.

Recently stayed in this apartment hotel. The whole experience of staying here was excellent.From cleanliness to friendliness, it was mostly faultless. I stayed in a very spacious two bedroom apartment. The bedrooms were roomy and the lounge, kitchenette area was also very spacious. my only small complaint about the accommodation was the fact that the baths and the secondary bathroom were on the small side. I have to say that this problem was more than compensated for by the fabulous views we were so lucky to have overlooking the bay area and Alcatraz. It was soooo tempting to attempt a swim over to 'The Rock'!!
The staff were very attentive and the hotel provided a huge SUV for free transport to anywhere within two miles. The hotel was also well located for the very touristy Fishermans Wharf, which was fun, and well located for catching the famous cable car for a ride downtown. Breakfasts were very good swell. Another tiny glitch was the lack of a bar, though there is a very good pub within five minutes walk which also provided excellent food. The apart hotel is also quite expensive but this was compensated for by the fabulous views and a bed that was the most comfortable I have slept on in years.

Room Tip: You're paying a small fortune to stay here so you might aswell break the bank completely and sta...

The residences at Ghirardelli Square have fantastic views of San Francisco Bay both from the units and from common areas. Particularly nice is the Mustard Terrace where you will find an expansive deck and outdoor fireplace. Our unit was a large one bedroom which was well furnished. The kitchen was fully functional. Situated west of Fisherman's Warf, the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. This is not the place to stay if you are in a hurry as it will take you awhile to get to Union Square or the Bart.
