Fairmont San Francisco

950 Mason St., San Francisco, California, 94108, USA

Dominating the top of Nob Hill like a European palace, the Fairmont is steeped in a rich history and pampers guests in luxury—rooms in the main building are done in conservative color schemes and have high ceilings, colorful Chinese porcelain lamps, decadent beds, and marble bathrooms; rooms in the newer Tower are generally larger and have better views. Architect Julia Morgan's timeless 1907 lobby design includes alabaster walls and gilt-embellished ceilings supported by Corinthian columns—it's easy to see why the Fairmont was chosen to host the signing of the United Nations Charter in 1945. Amenities and special services (including free chicken soup if you're under the weather and a newly crafted Intersect Media Lounge complete with multiplayer Guitar Hero and Wii Golf) keep loyal guests coming back. Don't miss drinks at the Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar, an over-the-top Tiki lounge that serves blue tropical cocktails with umbrellas.
