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 Russian Hill

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.

The property was updated, comfortable and well appointed. We loved sitting out at the firepit for early morning coffee and again for wine and cheese in the late afternoon. The staff is awesome...responding quickly to any need or issue. We will definitely stay here again when visiting San Francisco.

                                                                    Perfect Spring Break Trip

                                                                    tyler s.

                                                                    My family of 5 enjoyed a fabulous spring break at the Fairmont. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who would otherwise need 2 hotel rooms--it's worth every penny. The concierge team makes this place perfect for anyone who wants to have a stress-free vacation in San Francisco. The driver service was always available to take us or pick us up anywhere in the city. The team arranged a movie night, complete with popcorn, for my young daughters after a long day of walking around the city. They also gave my daughters a special milk and cookies coupon, which was a big hit. The accommodations are large and comfortable, albeit a little worn (but nothing that a little paint and stain wouldn't fix). Make sure and take some wine out on one of the two terraces and enjoy breathtaking view of the Bay!

                                                                    Luxury and space for days!

                                                                    Linda C.Tarpon Springs

                                                                    The staff from beginning to end were amazing and super helpful, from ordering groceries, to car service within 2 miles.

                                                                    If we travel to San Fran again we will stay here and would love to come with extended family.

                                                                    The outside decks are an added bonus to watch the view and the activities at Ghiradelli square below and the firepits make it cozy during the chilly evenings.

                                                                    We loved the Fairmont Heritage Residences!

                                                                    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.
