THE FAIRMONT SAN FRANCISCO
Unquestionably one of the grandest hotels in the city, the Fairmont San Francisco reigns supreme from its elevated position on Nob Hill.
Located at the junction for the city’s cable cars, this historic hotel has been providing luxurious surroundings for San Franciscans and visitors for the last hundred years. The luxury begins with the spectacular lobby and continues throughout the hotel’s rooms and suites, all of which offer stunning views across San Francisco. The hotel features one of the top health clubs in the city, Club One at Nob Hill Health Club, an excellent restaurant – Laurel Court – featuring wine from local wineries, together with 55,000 square feet of function space. In addition, the Fairmont’s reputation for impeccable service makes it the perfect destination for elite travelers.
TOP SUITE THE PENTHOUSE SUITE
Why we love it: Some of the world’s elite have stayed here, including John F. Kennedy, Prince Charles, Mikhail Gorbachev, King Hussein of Jordan, Mick Jagger and Elton John, and it’s easy to see why; this enormous suite features three large bedrooms, four bathrooms, a grand piano in the living room, a two-story circular library, a formal dining room that seats 60 and a billiard room covered in Persian tiles – from floor to vaulted ceiling. Located across the entire eighth floor of the hotel, the Penthouse Suite offers sumptuous views over San Francisco and comes with a butler and housekeeper, a chef, a massage therapist and a personal trainer.
