Our team had the pleasure of hosting Krista Minard, editor at Sacramento Magazine for two nights in a two-bedroom residence at the Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square this spring.

In the August multi-page Sacramento Magazine spread, Krista chronicles the wonderful time she had while staying in San Francisco at Fairmont Heritage Place – calling it a “perfect weekend” and “one of those rare times when travel magic happens”.

The sub-headline began with…what else, but the allure of sourdough and chowder, and the ending to Krista’s story was sweet, mentioning our wicked-good chocolate squares.

Our apartment, beside a small deck with a blazing firebowl, had dark hardwood floors, white-white fluffy beds, two full baths (the master one had a bathtub inside the room-size shower), a living room with two chairs and a couch and windows open to the bay, a dining table that could seat six, three flat-screen TVs, a digital music system and a fully equipped kitchen (including a fascinating refrigerator/freezer that opened like a drawer).

Krista was particularly charmed by the property’s location as an easy escape from Sacramento heat, luxurious amenities, and the rental and reciprocal use destinations.

In The Heart of It All. During her weekend sojourn, the author was able to enjoy all that our location has to offer.  Located at Ghirardelli Square provides plenty of shopping and dining options as well as Fisherman’s Wharf, with its clam chowder, shopping and street entertainment, within easy walking distance of the Fairmont.

It’s a luxury lifestyle, for sure, with all the amenities of a maximum-star hotel: concierge, housekeeping, gym, rec room, wine cellar, daily breakfast spread, grocery services, a house car and driver. Whether you own or simply check in as guests - as we did – you’re smack dab in the center of San Francisco’s Ghirardelli Square activity.

Krista sums it up for our team with a note:

We had a wonderful stay. Our residence was lovely--great view, convenient space plan for a family, no detail left untended, right down to the easy access to those wicked-good chocolate squares! The terraces, the breakfast, the proximity to all the action…

All in all it sounds as if our guest was pleasantly surprised and impressed with her accommodations while staying at the Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square. Read the full spread in Sacramento Magazine with Krista’s area tips, including burgers, bridges and where to take Fido.
