Fairmont San Francisco

5

A favourite amongst return visitors, this prestigious Union Square hotel overlooks the city and bay.

From the moment you reach the beautiful Fairmont San Francisco you will be struck by the striking exterior and classically-styled public areas. The elegance and old world charm that exudes the property belies the modern facilities that are on offer here. These include a choice of restaurants and bars – one of which serves one of the best Mai Tais in the city – as well as a fitness centre and spa – one of the few hotel spas in the city.

Dining is a true pleasure here and there is a variety of options to choose from including the grand Laurel Court Restaurant. It is here breakfast is offered each morning as well as the famous Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont which takes every weekend. For dinner local and seasonal dishes, created with produce sourced from local farms and flavoured with herbs grown in the hotel’s own Honeybees & Herb Garden, are served; reservations are highly recommended. For Pacific Rim cuisine and a fun tropical atmosphere – think tikis and drinks served in coconuts and pineapples – try the the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar which is open for dinner from Wednesday to Sunday.

The classical style continues into the rooms and suites which are located in the historic main building or the newer Tower building. Each room has modern amenities such as flat-screen televisions and Keurig coffee makers. Fairmont Rooms and Fairmont Exterior King Rooms are located in the historic building with the latter featuring neighbourhood views; while Signature Rooms are set in the Tower and have fantastic views over to the beautiful San Francisco Bay.
