I must say, Tom sure does know how to spoil me! We were quite impressed with the Fairmont San Francisco during our recent stay. The Fairmont is in a fanstastic location atop Knob Hill. Both the living room and bedroom were huge. The best part about the suite was that, with two full bathrooms, we each got one of our own! This old hotel has quite a history. Here are a few tidbits from the Fairmont website at http://www.fairmont.com/sanfrancisco:
...Kings, Queens, Presidents and all who visited were entranced by their surroundings.
...and The Fairmont was once again the place to see and be seen. Meanwhile, The Fairmont had made news with its role as the venue for the meetings of the United Nations. Once again, history was being made in a big way. To this day, the plaque commemorating the drafting of the Charter for the United Nations can be seen outside the Garden Room on the lobby level while the country flags of the original signatories fly proudly above the porte cochere
...As the San Francisco residence for every U.S. president since William Howard Taft, The Fairmont garnered a reputation for world-class hospitality.
