About Renee

We are family with 4 young kids and we live out of state. When we are in San Francisco, we love to be outside as much as possible. This includes taking the kids to the park, shopping and eating in the Marina, taking runs along Crissy Field or taking our bikes over the GG Bridge.

Renee purchased this hotel in 2008

Why Renee chose San Francisco

We looked at several properties before deciding to purchase at the Fairmont. We loved the proximity to cable cars, the beach, parks, restaurants, shopping. We love sitting on the Mustard Terrace and taking in the views by the fire.

What makes this hotel unique

The staff at the Fairmont always make our stay easy and try to accommodate all of our needs. They are responsive and knowledgable. We also love the house car that can take and pick you from dinner - a nice perk. And, the included breakfasts are great.

Beautiful property with many amenities/Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our little getaway to San Fran and staying in this lovely property. The location is fantastic, beautiful and well appointed. We stayed with our family of 5 (me, hubby, Mom and two teenage daughters). The apartment is HUGE, allowing for nice family meals/gatherings. The shared deck overlooking Ghirardelli Square and the harbor is breathtaking. There were a couple of things I would suggest for improvements, however. 1) The soft supplies (paper goods, shampoo, laundry soap, etc) should be stocked more generously. We had to call several times for refills (we're not overusers). The staff was very accommodating and always brought what we needed but I felt as though these things could have been anticipated and provided ahead of time so that we didn't have to ask). 2) The apartment, while beautiful and stylish, could use a little TLC. The headboard in the master bedroom was rotting and coming loose (we did speak with the staff upon our exit and they indicated that they are aware of this issue); the blinds are fairly cumbersome to operate and are loud when being raised or lowered (which is only an issue when those of us who got up early wanted to enjoy our coffee with some sunlight and others were still sleeping). 3) This is probably my biggest issue with VRBO/this location - they weren't able to guarantee a location until we got there. Of course we got the room on the back of the property with the view of the parking garage :( . It helps that there is a nice, shared deck, but for the kind of money we spent on this room it would be nice to be able to guarantee what you will be looking at for three days. We chose this property over others due to the views and unfortunately the only way we could enjoy them was to sit outside with a bunch of strangers after traipsing down a rather long, awkward hallway. I know these are minor issues and I would not bring them up if it wasn't for the price we paid - I feel like we paid top dollar for this location and it fell a bit short in my opinion. Lesson learned; I will look for properties in the future at which we can know where we will be located.

Great property with fantastic views! The staff is excellent. There is a continental breakfast and wine tasting included daily. The location can't be any better when exploring San Francisco. Just a total pleasure!

Just finished a week long stay with my wife and 3 college age daughters. The owner, Renee, was friendly, accommodating

and very quick to respond. The 2 BR unit and the property itself was beautiful. View of the bay and Alcatraz was great. Location was awesome. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Complimentary breakfast each morning and wine and cheese each evening was was well done .

The property car ( Cadillac Escalade SUV) and driver came in very handy and seemed to be readily available. One of the most comfortable sleep sofas in the living room that I have seen. Overall, an outstanding week.

Terrific property and location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place as my wife & I were traveling with our 3 kids (ages 10, 8, 18 months) and absolutely loved the location, service, quality etc. Parking is included and the breakfast daily a big plus. The units didn't have daily maid service but housekeeping coms in after 4 days and cleaned up which was great. Great place, you won't be disappointed.

Fairmont Residence

  • 5 of 5

The Fairmont residence was really an amazing place to stay in San Francisco. The unit was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The terrace was a great space to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. The location in Ghiradelli Square could not be better. The residence was in walking distance to many activities and great restaurants. The breakfast included each morning had many options that appealed to all ages. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in San Francisco.
