We're convinced Fairmont Hotels and Resorts wrote the book on living life lavishly and exceptionally. With dozens of locations within the the continental U.S. to choose from (and dozens more abroad), why not visit the location where it all began? Fairmont Hotels' most historic — and even more extravagant — hotel is nestled atop Nob Hill with seemingly endless panoramic views of the Bay in a little city called San Francisco. From speciality themed suites to handcrafted drinks in the Tonga Room, here are just a few reasons why you should consider leaving your heart at the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel this year.
We know what you’re thinking: Is that a royal palace? The property was purchased by the hotel line's founding family in the 1890s. In 1907, it was the first hotel to bear the chain's namesake and today is a leader in luxury accommodations. (Photo courtesy of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts).

Fairmont Hotels loves a good theme. The Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar is as funky and exotic as its name implies. Thatched tiki huts, earthy bamboo and wood slats, and a live band floating along a tropical lagoon play up the Polynesian vibe, transporting you to another space and time.

Available through March 31, 2018, the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel has transformed its signature Presidential Suite into the Sparkle Suite.

Fairmont Hotels doesn’t miss a beat during the holidays. In addition to a two-story, life size gingerbread house in the lobby, the hotel hosts Santa Clause himself in the Santa Suite.
