This historic hotel, which first opened its doors to the public one year after the famous 1906 earthquake, looks like a European palace, and a grand lobby awaits inside. Corinthian columns adorn the building both inside and out, and the spiral lobby staircase is breathtaking. From the second that guests arrive at the Fairmont Hotel San Francisco, they know they are in for a most rewarding stay.
