We Visit the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel
The Fairmont San Francisco Hotel – San Francisco is one of our favorite cities in the world. We hadn’t been to San Francisco in quite some time so we decided to book a long weekend and stay at the historic Fairmont San Francisco Hotel.
The fascinating history of the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel begins with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, its Venetian Room hosted the debut of Tony Bennett singing I Left My Heart in San Francisco, and its presidential suite has been the San Francisco residence for every U.S. president since William Howard Taft.
Adding to the Fairmont’s impressive history is its remarkable perch upon San Francisco’s Knob Hill, its the only spot in San Francisco where each of the City’s cable car lines meet, and as of this writing is the recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award as well as the Forbes Four Star Award.
Happy hour at the Hurricane Bar produced long lines and we heard that their Mai Tai was regularly voted the best in town!
We greatly enjoyed our visit to the historic Fairmont San Francisco Hotel. Its central location on Knob Hill made exploring the city easy, and having the cable cars right outside the hotel’s door was a wonderful convenience.
Disclosure: a portion of our stay was provided by the very kind folks at the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel. Thanks a bunch!
