The Fairmont

4* out of 5 stars

The Fairmont represents much more than just a San Francisco hotel. Since 1907 this palatial building has been the stalwart of downtown San Francisco and an integral part of its identity. It has a rich history, including being the location where the UN Charter was originally signed, and is traditionally the West Coast residence of generations of Presidents. No wonder then it is known as the ‘White House of The West”. The hotel is located at the only point where all city cable car lines meet. Sat prominently on Nob Hill, the Fairmont San Francisco’s simply incredible rooms look out onto equally breathtaking vistas of the city skyline, bay area, bridge, and Alcatraz.

Winner of the 2011 Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice “Best in the World” accolade, its unmistakeably grand architecture is mirrored inside the lobby and fine dining restaurant. Here exquisite marble pillars give way to elegant domes and intricately carved details. The hotel features a relaxing and rejuvenating spa with Club One, and cutting edge fitness centre. The Fairmont is also a favourite with business travellers, with 55,000 square feet of meeting and conference space, and every technological amenity one could need. As a luxury hotel experience, few other San Francisco hotels, or indeed US hotels, come close.

Welcoming and safeguarding guests is at the heart of the Fairmont ethos and this will never change. At Fairmont hotels, both management and staff are committed to providing an enhanced cleanliness and prevention programme so that, just like always, guests can experience a worry-free stay. High standards of hygiene are already a given across the Accor portfolio, however, new regulations have been introduced to ensure the safety and security of customers and employees. These include: increased disinfection of high-touch areas in rooms and public spaces; regular deep-cleaning of bedding, upholstery and carpets; establishing and maintaining new food safety standards; and offering global medical support to all guests through partnership with AXA. For more detail or information on a specific Accor hotel, please enquire.

Please note: This hotel charges a resort fee of $33 per room, per night, payable locally.
