The staff was both professional and warm. The room was immaculate, the view breathtaking, and the beds are phenomenally comfortable. A truly memorable stay. If you are looking for something sleek and modern this is not your hotel. Food and drinks in the hotel itself are not good value, especially given the wealth of foodie options in SF.
The fairmont has maintained the old style luxury without cutting corners. Fantastic staff, location and NO TOUR BUSSES!!
Comfortable beds. Great location. Nice staff. Beautiful decor. Poor soundproofing- we could hear everything next door. $65 parking and $14 wifi. "Courtyard view" misrepresents the huge noisy cooling type towers. Breakfast was 1 1/2 hour late. Dinner in the restaurant was loud and only mediocre.
Very luxurious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the management. When things went wrong, they were accommodating to benefit me for the inconveniences. Upon checking in, they didn't have our room available until the next day. Not sure how that even happens, but after talking to the manager, he miraculously was able to get our room. I had an allergic reaction to the laundry detergent they use on the bed sheets and my eyes swelled up. I was told that if you have allergies, you need to call in advance to make sure they wash the bedding with hyper-allergenic detergent (they normally use Dawn). For the inconveniences, they did comp me my room service.
The view is amazing in the linens were very comfortable Valet parking is a bit steep in price
Perfection... However, I was very surprised that the ice maker on our floor did not work, and there was a chocolate wrapper on a table by the elevator for our three day stay??? With all that opulence, did not get that???
Wonderful time here no bad experiences Totally preference but the beds are too soft and frankly the food is over priced for the quality. It's clear the food has not been under a real chefs direction for a while but these are relatively minor complaints
I originally was trying to book this hotel via the QANTAS website however they had problems, so I rang the hotel direct and they were most helpful. Not only did they book me in, but they beat the original price and converted it for me to $AUD for my small brain. I drove to SFO from LAX - on arrival bell hop service was excellent, didn't miss any bags or jackets that were in my car. Stayed in the main building - Fairmont Queen room Clean and tidy Free WiFi BathTub Excellent staff Late checkout Food selection and room service Tonga room is a must see Location very central to anywhere you'd like to be in SFO The main building although grand, is a little dated. The refurbished rooms are good, but the particular room I was in the door didn't fully open because the wall gets in the way, so for room service the trolley couldn't be wheeled in, food had to be carried in from the door, and there wasn't really any table to put the food on, only the writing desk or the fold out mini bar. I had to call for slippers
Room was large & I only had a queen. Bed, pillows & sheets all very good. Hotel is dated but some would call that charming. My robe had stains on it.
Location Parking at $65 a nite is outrageous There were no blankets in the room so I asked for some they came an hour later. I had to call 3 times to get service. Wifi was $14 a day not free. Coffee in the room was poor. U would think they could provide quality coffee. Paper was delivered to some rooms but not ours
Reputation was indeed lived up to ...better than I expected Cost of overnight parking
View, room, service
While the yellow carpet in the halls is a bit dated and worn, the rest of the Stanford court is updated, quirky, and fun. The staff is great, and the location is only half a block from the top of nob hill. Great weekend escape.
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, EVERYONE IN THE LOBBY WAS VERY HELPFUL AND KIND. HOTEL WAS CLEAN, AND PROVIDES A FRESH SMELL AS YOU WALK IN. I LOVED THE WATER BOTTLES TO GET PURIFIED WATER AS YOU WALK IN OR LEAVE.
I liked the lady at check in helping resolve an issue with billing. Somehow, the hotel reservations people decided I should pay for an extra night when I had cancelled that night the previous week. The lady at check in was very helpful and was able to resolve the issue, but I was disappointed I had the issue in the first place. It was not clear to me why this happened. The room was nice - but quite expensive in my opinion.
Nice location Slow service from check in to check out Uncomfortable beds (pillows were worn flat, requested new ones and got two more flat/worn out pillows) Towel was dirty (not stained--it had actual chips of dirt on it) slow wifi Very low quality food
Very comfortable bed. Free wifi. Good gym. Very friendly staff and they sell oddities water for $1 a bottle. A little bit dated interior
Mood Took too long to check-in
The location is wonderful, the bed was good No one answered the valet parking phone three days in a row. No room service. A beer glass sat in the hallway for two days without being picked up. Kitschy "hipster" feel.
The location and our room size No complaints
Friendly staff, great location (walking distance to most attractions), comfy beds and updated overall. Needed spa after some gruelling walks (need to be fit to get around) or simply jump on cable cars outside hotel ;). Although We found city pricy, hotel food offerings were excessive to say the least (no room service either?)Management has to know within walking distance are some great options for meals that are easier on your wallet.
Window view was loud but nice, room was clean and service was very good. Nice location. Jeffery was a great bartender showing professionalism with an intoxicated female needing assistance at the bar Urban tax fee is a shady charge that was not explained at check in, The fee is for bike rental and internet, yet the Wi fi was listed as free and you would be insane to ride a bike down the hills. I had to argue to get it removed.
Steve, one of the staff members, was very friendly and helpful. Aside from that, nothing. Nearly everything. The rest of the staff seemed unimpressed with the hotel themselves and in fact mocked the hotel for intentionally using "false advertising" to lure customers into staying there. Upon arriving we received a "complimentary upgrade," which off the batt seemed wonderful, but once we entered the room we were appalled; we couldn't even imagine what our original room would have looked like. When I called down to complain about the striking difference from the pictures on the website the woman at the front desk replied that what I saw online was called "photoshop." The room was spacious, but empty; there was no headboard, safe or amenities. The hotel offered nothing, but rooms and was not the kind of place you looked forward to returning to at the end of a long day. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and I would never return myself. For a couple hundred dollars more I could have stayed at the nicest hotel in San Francisco. This hardly ranks with the top hotels in the city, despite its high prices and false four star advertising online.
Location Mandatory "urban bundle fee" of $20+ per night, even if you don't use or want the services. Housekeeping was bad -- there was a half full highball glass in the hallway outside our room for our entire stay. When we arrived on a December evening the room temperature was set to 54 degrees with cold air blasting in. Overall not a friendly or welcoming environment, unfortunately.
Customer service was outstanding.
The staff was exceptional. ALL of them. Not much. The spa was priced really high so we ended up making other accommodations.
They need to add a salon that has someone there to do hair blow outs for customers staying at the Ritz.
Everyone was amazing! Jonathan the bartender, patrick the bellman, everyone! They made my boyfriends birthday very special. This is the best hotel in SF. Thank you to the entire staff. Nothing because everything was awesome!
The staff is nothing if not attentive. Very professional, courteous, helpful. The room was very nicely appointed. We were upgraded to a very large room which was more like a suite, making our week stay very enjoyable. The bed was extremely comfortable! I would definitely stay here again. We both felt that the $15/day charge for internet was excessive and off-putting. Unfortunately, the service we were getting with verizon was almost unusable, but we weren't willing to pay that kind of fee for wifi, which is free just about everywhere.
the hotel has a relaxed style with the trappings of luxury. Most of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us want to return Some of the check in staff were rather aloof and unhelpful
This hotel was fantastic! The rooms had plenty of space, the staff was attentive, we will definitely return!
Fantastic as Always
The staff were phenominal! No better way to end the day than to sit down in the lounge and listen to the piano. All around beautiful hotel.
The view was great. The service and the facility were also wonderful. totally worth the money. Location. It is located up on the very steep hill which you may not notice when you use Google maps. For travelers who solely rely on public transportation should be prepared to climb the hill or plan ahead for ground transportation.
Quality of service provided, location of the hotel & value for money None
Fabulous hotel, fabulous location, great staff
The room was surprisingly spacious and much bigger than what was advertised. The view onto Huntington park was spectacular. Daily fee for wifi in the room.
The staff is friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay perfect. Room service is fast. Parking valets are always available. The bar/restaurant is a wonderful place to unwind at the end of the day or drop in for a night cap. I love this place.
VERY friendly and attentive Bellmen. Delightful Staff
Really enjoy the Huntington. Professional staff and also provided a courtesy upgrade.
Close to shopping and away from touristy areas like fisherman's wharf.
Very spacious room, good housekeeping service. Nice common area for breakfast and evening wine (complimentary). Decent location on the edge of the Tenderloin, no problems walking up Post St from Union Square around midnight. Very old carpets, very poor wi-fi connection.
Wine and cheese reception. Location. Room decor.
Close to all main San Fran attractions. Hotel has no Bar or Dining facilities & the partner 'Pub' the White Horse is a dirty let down.
Desk service, cleanliness, wine and cheese, coffee and fruit
Comfortable bed; easy to take advantage of sightseeing; walking is convenient; complementary breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese is very satisfying. Noise outside building; very small bathroom; closet inside bathroom; use of bathroom light requires also use of noisy fan.
The staff was friendly and greeted us each time we returned. Happy hour was a nice opportunity to meet other guests and unwind before dinner. The rooms could use some simple updates (ie. New bed spreads)
Location is perfect and room was a good size
Very clean hotel. Comfortable beds, friendly staff. Big spacious rooms. Breakfast was good, wine in the afternoons was a plus. I recommend this hotel to everyone. Overall I loved this hotel and would stay over and over again. Only thing that was a bit of a nuisance was the street noise when the windows were open but it is to be expected. We are in the city.
- location was nice - did a complementary happy hour which was nice - expensive for the amenities and services - no air conditioner, so had to keep windows open which was noisy facing a busy street - uncomfortable bed with only two pillows -mediocre breakfast (not very good pastries) -expensive parking -expensive room occupancy tax
Great location, lovely hotel, comfortable and clean rooms, friendly staff. Really adds great value to a nice San Francisco holiday. Pretty close to everywhere in downtown as well.
The room has potential to be a great SF destination. plenty of room. Mini Kitchen stocked with reasonably priced snacks and drinks. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. Wow! The place was noisy. There was a loud group on the street that so loud that I could not sleep. That is the only reason that I did not give excellent reviews for comfort. I called the front desk, but the group never quieted down. And the group was using the N word like Donald Sterling.
The staff is very friendly and helpful Poor ventilation in bathroom
A bit cramped but functional
All of the fixtures (bed, shower tile, bathroom sink, desk, desk chair, lights, desks, etc) were top notch. Room had water damage down the corner and smelled bad. AC didn't work well. Lighting was very dim and had to turn on all lights to make it decently lit. Front desk didn't tell me about the amazing adult arcade that's in the back of the building.
We loved this hotel. The game room downstairs was a huge hit with the whole family. The location cannot be beat.
The decor was cool and the game room was a great feature. The walls were EXTREMELY thin...we could hear people talking in the lobby below us, and could hear every word people spoke in the hallways. That's my only complaint.
Moved us from our first assigned room which was musty and cigarette selling into a club level room. Service was above average. Hotel is not up to kimpton standards. Carpeting and elevators were frankly dingy. Room was average at best.
Staff was extremely professional and super nice! The hotel was centrally located to everything and the room was really cool! Loved it!!
The location The staff wasn't very helpful at all. Requested to have our bags taken up to the room after a hour of waiting had to go back down and get my own bags.
The game room downstairs is fantastic. The rooms are mod in decor and the beds extremely comfortable. The staff is top notch. The place is just cool.
I loved the game room and all of the stylish touches to the room! The color schemes felt good and the staff was very pleasant. I did not like the elevator. Way too small. I also could smell a stinch throughout the hotel like old moth balls. Just being honest. Also, just my opinion, but I think the hotel should offer breakfast. While I do appreciate the espresso in the room (which was delicious), I'd rather have food; if I can't have both.
Was very confusing to get around to our room (was in another building) and there were a few scuff marks here and there on the walls and also the remote control had a chip/crack in the back.
It was totally worth the money in the location that it was in. I really like the old charm it brought out. Staff was very helpful and professional. Not an issue with me, but I do understand the complaints about the one elevator when there is two in the lobby.
The bed was meag comfy Noises from the plumbing- I wouldn't normally comment and thought others were perhaps exaggerating but it sounded and like an earthquake in my room! The walls were vibrating and lights shaking when other folks were using their shower in the rooms above. Not good.
Nice and attentive personnel. Quality food. Having to pay for Internet. No phone in the lobby to make external calls. No service for coffee in the lobby.
Great location Parking costs
attitude of all staff, location excellent, quality of room and facilities, views from rooftop lounge and bar
The breakfasts were superb. Food selection was quite extraordinary. The view at the Top of the Mark is marvelous. My wife and I found no reason to dislike anything.
Courtesy of the staff! Parking is pricy!
Little bit too old The bed is great to sleep on.
staff was friendly and very accommodating. i had to launch my business this week and ended up here for 3 nights, was just a beautiful hotel and great staff. only complaint was someone charged our room for a dinner at the top of the mark and had to explain i hadn't even been up there. i had a dinner receipt from a restaurant from around the corner but the desk person believed me and didn't require viewing it. would definitely stay here again.
The Mark Hopkins was a great find. Nob Hill location away from the tenderloin area, which can be slightly seedy area. Recommend this hotel for comfort and luxury,location. Clean rooms, helpfull staff
Nice location. Courteous staff. Checkout not efficient.
I liked that we were able to find a great place on such short notice. The Manager on Duty, I think her name was Susan, was very helpful after one of the reservation agent accidentally mixed up our checkout time- and another Agent Brandon wasn't very kind to us. I ate most of my meals at the hotel, breakfast lunch and dinner- and I had three different bartender/servers during my stay that were all so very pleasant. Some even gave me directions to buy a hoodie at a nearby store because I didn't realize it would be colder there this time of year still. And the chef made me an awesome salad when I wanted to exchange tuna for chicken on the salad that comes with Lemon Dressing- it was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this substitution as the combination of greens and dressing go amazing with Tuna! It will cost you 2 dollars more as Tuna is more expensive (rightfully so) but it I ate the entire thing. I couldn't stop myself. Other than the mixup on our checkout time- I was happy with my stay overall.
Close to everything with all the conveniences yet subdued and relaxing. Staff were attentive and available. The restaurant /lounge was a great venue to unwind
Great staff, newly remodeled rooms and location was perfect. Nothing
Location and friendly staff Parking fee was extremely expensive and there was no free wifi. For the price, wifi should have been included.
Hotel's location is very convenient since it is just two blocks ahead union square. The complimentary wi-fi internet was not available most time in the hotel room due to very poor speed, although it was declared as wi-fi free hotel. Not a big deal but it was a bit noisy at nights because of cable cars.
Great location within easy walking distance to all attractions, shopping and restaurants.
Very convenient location. Beautiful rooms. Comfortable and friendly Still waiting for a response from check out yesterday. Ordered 2 x $21.00 breakfasts. Gave waitress cash tip - she had no bill as computer down at time. Queried charge of $63.00 total for this meal when we received final account. We paid full amount but check out promised to investigate and advise when we checked out yesterday. No reponse so far.
We liked the cleanliness in the hotel and our room. It was central to many locations. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. The drainage in the tub was very slow, but that was the only minus.
Easy check in, short walk to shopping, restaurants and city life, fairly clean, good service, nice staff. It wasn't worth the "discount rate" of $129. It was a basic room with no bells and whistles.
Location Windows did not open (Fresh air)
Location and sercice Internet access no
Getting upgraded to a suite at no cost. Kind of loud from street noise
Excellent location, friendly staff and the restaurant inside the hotel. he rooms are large for being in the heart of the city. The parking situation- valet for 40+taxes was high
For a downtown located hotel, the room was surprisingly large. It was clean and well furnished. The noise from street was tolerable. I appreciated the free wifi which worked ok most of the time. Staff was friendly and location is close to everything in SFO. The price seems to be steep but I guess that's typical of SFO. People affected by street noise may not like it.
Breakfast was better than continental. Staff very helpful. DVD choice a great feature and a laptop in lobby for free internet incl. printing. Large room. All mod cons. A bargain considering breakfast..room decor and location. A gem no!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good too--personally I was hoping for stuff like pancakes and eggs. The hotel breakfast was mostly just bread, fruit, and cereal. But it was all really good, so even though it wasn't exactly what I wanted I couldn't complain. Nothing really. Good all around.
The room was big by SF standards. All the staff we encountered were very polite, warm and attentive.They also accommodated my request for a quiet room off the street.they have valet parking and real room keys(when do you see that?).It was a nice old hotel with a very good location.
Very run down and supprised it was on booking.com as we have always had great hotels in the past this was very poor, very old and outdated in urgent need of a make over, rooms were very tiny and the bathroom was a joke would never stay here again, apart from one young lad on the desk the rest of the staff were as old as the hotel, very rude and unhelpful,if we had been staying in san francisco for any lenght of time we would of checked out and found a different hotel.
A very omfortable hotel, close to transport, restaurants, shopping, tourist activities. Very happy with it. n/A
The best part of the stay was the convenient location to Union Square and the affordable price. When we used the valet parking (the only option for parking a car, and a pricey fee over and above the room charge), they assigned the car to the wrong room number, so at checkout time there was confusion and wasted time.
Central to Union Sq and cable cars. Easy transport very close to all other SF attractions. Very reasonable proce for all day valet parking
It was very convenient for Union Square, theatre district, shopping etc. The breakfasts were more than adequate, the pub atmosphere at the end of the day was very relaxing and very friendly. There was nothing to dislike, a little old fashioned, but for 2 oap's from uk was fine.
The staff was great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The elevator worked, the beds were comfortable, there was ample closet space, as well as a dresser and mini-fridge. There were coffee shops, pharmacies, and restaurants within a block or two of the hotel, which made it a great location. And the price, of course, was hard to beat. It's an old building, which comes with both charms and inconveniences. The old radiators, for example, pump out quite a bit of heat, which must be great on those cool, foggy days. If you stay over warmer days like I did, shutting them off and opening the window will bring the room back down to a comfortable level, albeit slowly. There are also no ventilation fans in the bathrooms, so they have louvered windows in the showers to keep the moisture levels down. This creates an interesting dichotomy of hot and cold in the same space. It took some getting used to. There were only two outlets in the room, which I've come to expect in older buildings. As a business traveler on a budget, you learn to travel with a power strip.
Excellent location. Good value for price. A bit out-of-date and needs makeover. Bathroom clean and modern. Furniture old. Noisy if room is near Tavern. Breakfast adequate. Lack of AC not an issue most of the year.
The hotel was fine. We did ask the staff for a quiet room, but instead got the (probably) most loud room. At the end of the hallway with aircon machines or what ever running all day/night making a lot of noise. The guy at reception said they stop at 10pm but they didn't. So he lied which I don't apreciate. For the rest reasonable hotel for the price. The man that checked us in, lieing about the noise in the room.
Its proximity to the event I was attending. Noise levels high.. Internal/external
close to union square
Very friendly staff, convenient location and nice area, clean, comfortable, great value for the room rates. None come to mind. Maybe tea and coffee faccilities in the room would be nice, but its not a major issue, it has a mini bar and the restaurant is just downstairs.
Super location. Nice staff. Clean. Internet not free. Public internet stopped working when I tried to use it
Concierge excellent, skyline lounge very nice, staff very courteous. Seating area in room very limited. Too small for price.
I had a really great first time experience at this hotel. One of the things that I liked about this hotel is that you don't feel like you're staying in a San Francisco boutique hotel (aka tiny, narrow walkways, tiny lobby's). I've been to SF a number of times and stayed in boutique hotels and after a while they get kind of eh. The JW Marriott was fantastic. It was clean, in a great location, and every one was helpful. The bathroom was very luxe, which is why I chose this hotel versus the Marroitt. I used the gym in the morning and it was clean and had your standard requirements for a gym. I would def recommend this hotel to others! I was a little bummed that our drain didn't close. I wanted to take a bubble bath but wasn't able to. I would have complained but we were only staying for one night
wonderful service from all employees
The building is beautiful and welcoming, the staff is amazingly friendly, other guests were pleasant, breakfast was nice, bed was comfortable, I felt safe, windows open, fan in room, wonderful place!!! The fan in the bathroom didn't work, but they supplied me with a plug in fan to accommodate, not really that big of a deal.
Best location for the money. Large rooms, great staff and always neat and clean. Fine for me, but only have large King bed. Could be problem for some. There is a pull out sofa, however.
Location is perfect, steps from Union square, local music, theater and shopping. Price was very good. Two complaints although minor would have been easy to fix. The room had a coffee machine with packaged coffee but house cleaning forgot to leave new coffee packets for Sunday morning. The car was valet parked in the garage for the weekend but it was returned with some very minor new scratches on the drivers door.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was super comfortable. The location was perfect. Noise from the nightclub!
Friendly and helpful staff. Comfy bed.
The hotel is well located, just one block from Union Square and its huge departament stores (Macys, Bloomingdalesm Saks etc) and boutiques. In Union Square there's a sightseeing bus stop, so it's easy to go to other points of interest. The room was good, large and clean. There was a microwave oven, a frigobar and cafeteria on a corner. There was some noise, it seemed to come from the hotel itself, like an extractor fan or something like that.
We loved the size and layout of the room. it was so much larger than most "big city" hotels. Also, the location was excellent.
Location was suberb being 1 block from Union Square and so convenient to all modes of transportation, theater, shopping, restaurants. Can't be beat.
Location was very desirable. Close to Union Square, but not right on Powell Street. Also, club level lounge and fitness center were nice. Even on the 10th floor, the street noise on Saturday night of our stay could be heard through closed windows.
I like being in the Presidential Suite.
We like the room set up and size. Good location . Wifi was horrible!!!! Hounded daily to attend a Wyndham time share opportunity. Just one restaurant. Very loud in the mornings. Bathrooms were horrible and small.
Pro: Free music! Con: It was at 2:45 AM and closing the windows didn't help block out his persistant drumming.
Very central hotel, close to everything, very helpful staff, nice room there was no pool and the hot tub was under renovation
We were very pleased about the location. The hotel was very cozy and comfortable and we would definitely consider staying here again next time we'll be in San Francisco. Only that the wireless internet connection should be working in all rooms and maybe the breakfast could be improved with more fruit/ healthy alternatives to the eggs and french toasts, which was good but very rich!
The ambience and location. A very different experience and obvious pride in which the owners had tastefully decorated each and every room. Lack of Tea/coffee making facility in the room.
Kind hospitality, There is no coffe machine in the rooms
Everything about the hotel, it was charming, very clean, the people were very nice, the room was comfortable. Loved the decor and the French influence. I would defintely stay there again and would recommend it to family and friends. Loved the old elevator, reminded me of the one when I lived in San Francisco many years ago. I am planning on another trip to San Francisco in the near futrue and would like ot stay there again. Close to Union Square and stores and restaurants. Want to try their dinner next time. Dont have any dislikes whatsoever
Convenient, charming and reasonably priced. Includes a well-prepared complementary breakfast. Would have tried the restaurant but it was quite expensive. No fridge in room.
It was very nice to get an American Breakfast with your room rate. No blow dryer in the room - had to ask for one, and go to the office to get it.
I liked the friendliness of the staff and the attention to making the hotel a comfortable place to stay.
Location, just perfect Restaurant schedule
Staffs are very friendly
The service was spot on as well as the entire decor of the place. Very beautiful and clean. The room was quaint and delightful. I enjoyed the bathtub very much. The heater was a little hard to use.
the free breakfast. Quite a quaint place to stay. No window view at all in our room.
There is French music playing near the office. Each floor has the works of a French artist, and we stayed on the Chagall floor - one of my favorites. The elevator was prompt and I enjoyed the old style gate that closed after the doors closed. Very charming. Quite close to Union Square. American breakfast was included in our price; nicely done. -
The staff were incredibly helpful, and the location was perfect Traffic noise as vehicles made it up the very steep slope outside my window
Quaint. Charming. Right in the city. Did a lot of walking. Close to Union Square and Chinatown. Great eating places nearby Loved the hotel staff. They were helpful, informative and always considerate. Friends all said that this would be a place that they would return with their spouses and children.
Great, central location. The Nob Hill neighborhood is nice, plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. Everyone on staff at the Inn was incredibly friendly and helpful. The building itself is gorgeous. We had a really enjoyable stay here! Neighborhood is a little noisy, but it's the middle of the city so it's to be expected.
