Hotel Fairmont – San Francisco

Centrally located in Nob Hill, the iconic Fairmont has been welcoming San Francisco’s most dapper guests for over 100 years. This 5-star boutique hotel is located within walking distance of Union Square, Telegraph Hill, and the Financial District.

The luxurious Fairmont boasts 544 guestrooms, each one decorated in a classic, understated palette of silver and pewter. Rooms feature spacious desks and sitting areas, indulgent marble bathrooms, soft robes, and in-room refreshments. Fairmont Exterior rooms enjoy sweeping views of the city skyline and the Nob Hill neighbourhood.

The Tonga Room has been one of San Francisco’s most famous nightspots since 1945. Nostalgia lovers can gather around the large ‘lagoon’ (formerly the hotel’s swimming pool) and enjoy a masterfully mixed cocktail whilst listening to The Island Groove Band perform on a floating barge. The Laurel Court restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, offering seasonal, coast-influenced menus prepared by executive chef Oscar Gonzalez.

Guests have access to the Live Fit Gym & Wellness Spa, which features free weights, a variety of machines, a sauna, and a steam room. The Fairmont offers a range of meeting rooms, and many feature lofty ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and beautiful antique fixtures. Tony Bennet first performed his hit “I left my heart in San Francisco” at The Fairmont’s Venetian Room in 1961.
