The shower took 7-8 mins for the water to get hot despite shower saving notes and a water saving showeheadin the bathroom. Great hotel outside that.

Great luxury hotel at the top of the city

Pros: The grandeur of the lobby, lounge and overall facilities
Cons: Nothing that comes to mind
Location: It's at the top of of a steep hill...! But equal access distance down to Market St or down to the financial district & Embarcadero
So long as you are aware that the Fairmont is at the top of the steep hill on Mason & California St, which necessitates a good walk from either direction downtown, then you will have a great experience at the Fairmont. For some reason it's rated 4 stars on some guides but easily carries a 5 star standard. We stayed at the Palace Hotel on Market St the week before and the two hotels are very similar. The architecture and fittings are grand without being dated. The staff were exceptional and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Having stayed at many of the various premium hotels in San Francisco, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Fairmont as an option.

Lovely Historical Hotel

We enjoyed our stay at Nob Hill. Very easy to jump on a Cable Car and get down to the waterfront. The history and ambience of the hotel was awesome. Well appointed comfortable rooms.

Everything you'd expect

Great service, we arrived early and just expected to check bags, however they (Helena) immediately gave us alternative room options we could check into now if we chose. Great menu, great bar, great location.
