We had a layover in San Francisco, which was strategically planned such that we can work in an overnight at this beautiful hotel, and book an afternoon tea at their location. The location is quite convenient from BART, which brought us in from the airport. It is a short hike to the hotel, but it is uphill all the way.
We got checked into a suite, as requested – and we got their Bombay Suite which was a beautiful suite with a balcony that has a wonderful view.
Once you walk in the door, you’re in the living space, with a desk on the left with fresh ice in the ice bucket.
The living space is pretty spacious and under the TV has the stocked minibar, with complimentary tea and coffee. There’s a balcony that opens up off this room and we spent most of our night out there with their patio furniture enjoying our view.
In a separate room offers the bed and bathroom. We did upgrade to a room with a King bed, and once they switched us to a suite… the king bed was gone, which was too bad. I think the suite would be better with a larger bed. Regardless, the bed was very comfortable and the sheet set was as well!
The bathroom was quite standard, it didn’t have the wow factor, but yet we don’t spend the same amount of time in this room. It’s practical and functional, so that’s all that really matters. There are 2 Fairmont robes behind the door that we were able to use during our stay. We definitely took advantage of it too!
Overall, our stay was quite enjoyable, and it was our pleasure to experience this hotel. One of the most memorable part of this stay was their turn down service – they tucked in my stuffed animal and placed a post card of the hotel in the suite. Although I already purchased a post card, this one is definitely staying in my collection!
