Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Fairmont Heritage Place has a prime location on Ghirardelli Square in Fisherman’s Wharf, looking out over the bay and right in the heart of the action.

Rooms at the Fairmont Heritage Place

The luxurious and stylish holiday apartments consist of one, two and three-bedroom residences. The suites are spacious and have full kitchens, fireplaces in the living rooms and dining areas in an open-plan design. They are styled in a chic fashion, with exposed brick walls and soft colours and have lovely views over the city and the bay.

The one-bedroom residences can sleep up to four guests, the two-bedroom residences sleep six, and the three-bedroom residences can sleep up to eight people - so there's something for everyone.

Food & Drink

Wake up to a delicious continental breakfast, and for lunch and dinner, take advantage of Ghirardelli Square's plentiful dining options within a stone’s throw of the hotel, while Fisherman’s Wharf is famous for its seafood restaurants and independent coffee shops, so there should be no shortage of choices to satisfy your cravings.


There's a 24-hour fitness centre if you fancy a workout, or indulge in a massage in the privacy of your room. The hotel's rooftop area offers a stunning view across the bay and is a great place to chill out after a busy day exploring San Francisco.

Activities at the Fairmont Heritage Place

The location of the hotel is undoubtedly the biggest attraction of this hotel. Shop on Ghirardelli Square, and right around the corner at Fisherman’s Wharf, you can get the ferry to Alcatraz, as well as cycle, drive or walk across San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge, visit some of the quirkier areas of the city, such as the vibrant Castro district, head up Nob Hill for a great view across the bay, or get tickets to a Giants game at AT&T Park and soak up some of the atmosphere.

Borrow one of the hotel's complimentary bikes to zip around, and you should also make sure you take one of the city's iconic cable cars to explore - each of the cable car lines meet right by the hotel, making it easy to discover San Francisco in spectacular style!
