Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square, San Francisco
Exposed brick walls, cosy fireplaces, fresh sea air and contemporary independent living encapsulate the concept of the fabulous Fairmont Ghirardelli. Located on the waterfront just west of Fisherman’s Wharf, with amazing views over the Golden Gate Bridge and harbour, it is a unique property that combines self catered accommodation with a luxury hotel experience.
Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square
The hotel occupies the former Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory and each wing is named according to its original function, such as the Cocoa Wing. These charming connotations run throughout the hotel and the rooms are extremely comfortable and tasteful, with a contemporary urban twist. The living areas are very spacious with dining tables and open plan kitchens equipped with the latest appliances, technologies and entertainment systems throughout. Whilst the one bedroom apartments suit couples looking for a romantic break, the two and three bedroom options are perfect for families looking for a home from home experience. The location of the hotel makes it extremely safe for children of all ages and the twice-daily maid services and in room laundry facilities make for stress free family travel.
Despite its proximity to Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square remains relatively undiscovered by the tourist masses and is now home to a number of fabulous restaurants such as Waxman’s pizzeria and Mcormic & Kuleto’s steakhouse. Breakfast is served daily in the hotel’s Club Room and all guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary ‘Wine Hour’ each evening between 5-6pm. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen if the local farmers market produce takes your fancy, or alternatively if you are celebrating a special occasion, ask the hotel concierge team to organise a chef to come in and cook your favourite meal.
Fresh air junkies will love the hotels ocean front location and its accessibility from some of the cities most famed sites. The Golden Gate Bridge is within cycling distance, Fisherman’s Wharf and the ferry to Alcatraz a short walk away and the bustling downtown area of Union Square and Market Street are just 15 minutes by Street Car. Uber is massive in the States, so if time is short or you need to get back for wine hour and sundowners, there’s never a driver more than a few moments away. North Beach (the area behind the square and Fisherman’s Wharf) is very up and coming, with artisan coffee shops and bakeries as well as quirky bars and lots of places to eat out breakfast, lunch and dinner.
