We had an excellent experience here at the Fairmont! It was easy to check in we checked in at 3 AM and everyone was very accommodating and got us in quickly. The breakfast was super the hotel was very clean and very cautious of any Covid protocol. We enjoyed the Tonga room and were able to get reservations it was a blast! It was very grand and exciting to stay and the location was superb to everything in San Francisco.

What was once the Grande Dame of San Francisco is now a shell of its former glory. Housekeeping is sub par. Amenities are not to be found. Even the ice maker on my floor was out of service. (You would think a 4 star hotel could afford to get it fixed). Staff were hard to find. So many of the services and amenities you would expect were simply gone. (Yet they are still promised on the website). In 6 days stay I got housekeeping service only 2x. And they didn’t even bother to replace the soap or shampoo. The room was dusty. And the phone cradle was dirty Both showing that the hygiene program was not carried out. My advice. Don’t waste your money, you get better service and accommodation at a Holiday Inn.

Such a CLEAN, luxurious room. Beautiful views. Comfortable amenities, AMAZING gracious hotel staff - bell hop, maid service, valet, restaurant staff. I am most thankful the executive chef team was willing and able to accommodate my son's multiple serious food allergies. Juan Cervantes communicated with me and thoroughly put my anxieties at ease (we have never eaten out before due to our son) but under Juan's guidance - we all enjoyed 2 dinners at Laurel Court safely and left very full/satisfied and happy! Thank you all to the amazing staff members! PS- We stayed during fleet weekend. We have in the past driven in and out for the show but traffic is always very tough. This year being in the city made everything much more enjoyable and easier navigating the traffic (which is still there but at least we weren't too far away). The cablecar line runs right next to the hotel - we loved it. Chinatown is just a few blocks down the hill, very accessible and also was fun to explore!

Beautiful hotel but that’s it. Ac didn’t work. Flys in your room and no services. We stayed at the JW Marriot the prior week and were treated like kings. One big plus is proximity to TWO trolleys right outside the hotel.
