The Fairmont Hotel is the most popular
hotel in San Francisco

 

High atop one of San Francisco’s hills sits one of the most affluent and distinguished neighborhoods of San Francisco, and the perfect setting to "where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars". Nob Hill, where once stood the opulent mansions of Hopkins, Huntington, Stanford, Crocker and Flood is today resplendent with luxury hotels, parks and the grand Grace Cathedral.

Huntington Park, on the corner of Taylor and California St.. the land donated to the City of San Francisco in 1915 by Mrs. Collis Huntington, is where the picturesque roman "Fountain of the Tortoises" is located.
