Insider's View

These residences are perfect for families as they are so large, also perfect for a longer stay as they all come with washer/dryers.

A fantastic historic property as it used to be an Old Chocolate factory, so the different wings of the hotel are linked to different chocolates!

Why not ask staff to pre-stock the fridges for you before you arrive, save you doing a huge grocery shop.

The views from the residences can either be looking over the bay or over the city. Both of which are amazing, but let us know which you would prefer.

San Francisco, the West Coast’s unpretentious culture capital offers world-class restaurants, including 17 Michelin-starred eateries within city limits, as well as museums and shopping. Fairmont Heritage Place is ideally located to explore the city, take the old fashioned trolley along Market Street towards Union Square, or down towards Embarcadero from where you can take the F line from the Ferry Building up to Fisherman's Wharf. San Francisco is incredibly easy to navigate by foot, bicycle, bus, trolley or taxi. It’s also a gateway to the nearby wine country of the Napa Valley.

In downtown San Francisco you can browse art galleries, visit bustling Chinatown, get a handle on the geography by climbing one of the city’s famed hills or take the cable car, go shopping in the fashion epi-center Union Square, board a bay cruise at Fisherman’s Wharf to take it all in from the water or book ahead to visit Alcatraz Island, take a stroll across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and lunch in charming Sausalito.

Location & Directions

San Francisco, California

Fairmont Heritage Place is located in Ghirardelli Square overlooking San Francisco Bay.

When to go

San Francisco is a year-round destination but has a cool maritime climate. In the summer, the city’s famous fog rolls in mornings and evenings, creating a misty chill in the air. Spring sees the end of the rainy season, and the city’s pretty-in-pink cherry blossom trees dot the landscape. In Fall Indian Summer comes to San Francisco, bringing warm, dry days with plenty of sunshine. The very best time of year is August to October when temperatures are at their highest and days are often sunny.
