Don’t expect much sleep

Godalming, United Kingdom

This hotel is beautiful, grand and all things wow on arrival. This is where the joy ends though. We stayed for 1 night when passing through San Francisco and what a shame the walls are so paper thin. We heard every word the guests next door were saying including their TV at 7am. This made for a very disappointing stay and considering the very high end pricing I expected much better. Finally the tablet next to the bed wakes people up at set times and announces news with beeps. Again very frustrating! If you want to stay here bring your ear plugs!

Tips for San Francisco's Most Elegant, Classy Hotel

Kenwood, California

The Fairmont is perhaps San Francisco's best known hotel. Built in 1906 on Nob Hill, the hotel survived the earthquake, but extensive damage meant that it did not open until 1907. It was the classiest hotel in San Francisco at the time, and remains an AAA Four-Diamond luxury hotel that is a City landmark . The Fairmont was built by the daughters of U.S. Senator James Graham Fair and was named for him. It subsequently became the vanguard of the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts chain, all upscale and expensive hotels. Stay in the Fairmont San Francisco for a special occasion for an experience of historic elegance. There are some hotels you have to stay in at least once if you can afford it. If you can't, it is worth it just to stroll the ground floor and see the beautiful Chinese antiques. The ground floor lobby and restaurant have beautiful marble walls and pillars and elegant furnishings. The bedrooms are comfortable although they and the bathrooms are somewhat on the small side as is typical of older hotels. I rated the hotel with four stars because we have not been impressed with the restaurants. The Tiki room is fun. The main restaurant on the first floor has a surprisingly short menu. Breakfast and lunch options are... sparse. The food was good, but not at the level one would expect from such a landmark hotel. We had a chicken and waffle option and the fish tacos, but expected more salad options and Asian food so were a little disappointed. The wait staff was great, however.
