Anniversary trip

Kyle, Texas

Since my husband and I honeymooned in San Francisco we opted to return to celebrate our 21stanniversary. I love history and wanted to find accommodations that "felt" like San Fransisco. I couldnt have been happier. With the exception of an initial concierge oversight, the entire experience was amazing! The tower bay view room was AMAZING! Stunning views of the city and bay. The staff was attentive and courteous. A subsquent concierge, Charlotte assisted us with booking dinner, and various tourist destinations. We enjoyed the Tonga room, were greeted by name and wished a Happy Anniversary by the wait staff. Drinks were amazing, food not so much. Overall the trip ended just as I anticipated, memorable and lovely. Hope to return soon!!

The front desk staff and hotel are lovely. My room was comfortable and the view spectacular. I have to say though, the restaurant/lounge food and staff were not great. Service was poor and food not what I expect from Fairmont. Thankfully there are many other choices and the everything else Fairmont was great. If you need a driver, make sure you ask for Ivan and his Town car. He is a lovely man and worth every penny for my trip to the airport.
