About the property

Fairmont Managed, Luxurious 2 Bedroom & 2 Bathroom, sleeps 6

We provide a unique, luxurious residence with 6-Star Amenities normally only available at high-end hotels. Our GOAL is provide you with the same unforgettable, pampered accommodation my wife and I enjoy.

Even before you arrive, and afterwards as well, our concierge staff will arrange transportation to/from airports, buy groceries and stock the fridge for you, make dinner reservations, book tickets for museum, theatrical, cultural, and sporting events or for sailing, winery tour, bicycle and segway excursions.

Your actual stay starts with our doormen who will welcome you, valet park your car and transfer your luggage from your car. Our butlers will then deliver your belongings to our residence for you.

Upon arrival, you will proceed to our lobby where our welcoming and friendly Dedicated Concierge Staff will provide whatever you need. You can enjoy a free breakfast for you and members in your party every morning and a free wine and cheese reception in the lounge at 5PM every day.

If you are driving to our residence, free valet garage-parking, with full in/out privileges, is provided during your entire stay. In addition, our Butler staff will provide whatever you want, delivered to your residence. Our Upscale offering also includes free Escalade transportation within a two-mile radius so you avoid San Francisco's notorious traffic and lack of parking.

We are located in the former Ghirardelli Chocolate buildings, a Landmark listed on the National Historic Registry, across from the Historic Aquatic Park District overlooking San Francisco Bay at the base of spectacular Russian Hill - just steps from San Francisco Bay, Cable Cars, The Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, The Ferry Building and its Farmers’ Markets and shops, the new Exploratorium, North Beach Restaurants, Fort Mason, the Marina, Chrissy Field and the Golden Gate Bridge, among so many other nearby attractions.

Each bedroom has a luxurious King Bed with fine Mascioni Italian linens, entertainment centers with 42' HD TVs and a luxurious private bathroom. A sofa bed in the living room has a queen pull-out sleeper that can accommodate 2.

The luxury kitchen is fully equipped with upscale appliances, including a refrigerated wine cooler, or you can have meals catered or delivered for in-residence dining. Free mid-week cleaning is included on stays of 5 days or more, and additional cleanings can be arranged.

The Mustard Deck is a large outdoor terrace above Ghirardelli Square with expansive views of gorgeous SF Bay for relaxing or dining by the stunning gas fire pit, and our Carillon on the deck is available 24/7 for special events. The spectacular Fourth of July Fireworks display is directly in front of our Mustard deck.

Place is v nice, but I thought for the price breakfast could have been better

  • 3 of 5

They didnt even bother to give one bottle of water and even housekeeping not included in the exorbitant rates.

We stayed at a much more reasonable place after this and they gave hot breakfast and water, housekeeping

Owner's Response: I am surprised by this review, especially given the special effort made to assist this renter. We are an upscale residence and prices we're clearly known to renter prior to booking. Butlers were available 24/7 to assist with any needs and would have provided water had renter asked for it though our ad stated that given the quality of SF water we try to reduce use of plastic bottled water. Housekeeping is provided with a stay of 4 nights and the breakfast is continental - both of these are stated in our ad and they are the way they are because we are not a hotel, but rather we are an actual residence with full kitchen facilities.
