Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Fairmont was built and named in honor of mining magnate and U.S. Senator James Graham Fair, by his two daughters before the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
The luxury hotel has been featured in numerous films and the television show Hotel.
Our favorite space within the hotel is the world renowned Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar, which features a literal wet bar, the center section of the bar rains down water. Another feature of the bar is a bandstand on a barge that floats in a former swimming pool, a dining area built from parts of an old sailing ship, and artificial thunderstorms. [Not pictured]
The Venetian Room at the Fairmont Hotel was where Tony Bennett first sang “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” in December 1961.
From the moment one steps into the Fairmont, the design, furnishings and opulent surroundings captivate guests and visitors.
