Classic grand hotel

The Fairmont is a classic old grand hotel. We were offered an upgrade for an additional fee, and took it because of the wonderful balcony. The view was great! The hotel staff was very helpful, the price was reasonable, and the location was good. Room service was also good. The bathroom was a bit small, though, and the restaurant service spotty.

Great Stay in Historic San Francisco Hotel

Cleveland, Ohio

My wife and I stayed here as part of our 10 year anniversary trip. Upon arriving the room we were given in the main building had a smokey smell to it. Not cigarettes - most likely the HVAC system. We called the front desk who immediately moved us to another room in the tower. This was the start of a wonderful two night visit. I love being able to take the cable car to and from the hotel to get around the city. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. Service was also excellent. My one complaint is about the "resort fee" we were charged each night. I understand this if you are at a resort - but city hotels shouldn't be able to charge these. Especially when you aren't getting breakfast, access to an onsite pool, etc.
