    Nob Hill Shenanigans

    I was lucky enough to stay here. It's central, grown-up, decadent yet business like; a preferred meeting place for the Silicone Valley, Harvard Boys and the Financial Sector, being a stone's throw from the tallest building in San Francisco; Transamerica Building and the Financial District. The staff at the Hotel are very business-like, super efficient and very helpful. The city is bustling, the restaurants, service and eclectic choice is great and if you know where to go... it's memory-making! I had a blast in San Francisco.

    Fair mint San Francisco is probably the most beautiful hotel in the city! Our suite was located on the 16th floor with a wonderful view over the bay: from the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Pyramid Transamerica Tower, including between Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Bay Bridge and amazing views on the city. Services were perfect! I look forward to going back at the Fairmont’s and can only advise to go and enjoy a one-of-a kind luxury experience in San Francisco!!! 😍😍😍

    Amazing base camp spot

    I picked the hotel for the location, slap in the middle of everything we wanted to see. From the moment we walked in, we fell in love. The hotel is a historic and beautiful as advertised. The staff was very helpful and friendly. My wife still talks about this place with awe almost a year later.

    Left My Heart in San Francisco

    We arrived to our room to be astounded by the magnificent view of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge (we were on a high floor). We mentioned to the front desk we were in town celebrating our daughter’s twelfth birthday and were pleasantly surprised to find chocolate covered strawberries in the room with a lovely birthday balloon. Tiki bar in the basement is a must (be sure to reserve your spot early). Proximity to restaurants and all the city has to offer just make this a spectacular hotel. Service was five star.
