Ever wondered what it would be like to live in the city by the bay? It might be time to find out.

Fairmont Hotels recently announce a unique opportunity for visitors to enjoy a night, a weekend or a lifetime at the Square’s recently opened private luxury residences, Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square.  


Following a multi-million dollar revitalization, Ghirardelli Square and its famous red brick buildings have re-emerged as one of San Francisco’s hottest new lifestyle destinations, featuring new wine tasting and artisanal foods, unique specialty boutiques, and the Fairmont Heritage Place private residence club homes.  

While the Fairmont Heritage Place Private Residence Club is the ideal second home on San Francisco’s waterfront, offering 1/10th deeded ownership interests of just 53 residences, now, visitors can also enjoy the new residential offerings and many services and amenities of the club. A stay in the residences will also showcase a first-hand experience as to what it’s like to own a piece of San Francisco.

“In addition to our famed Nob Hill location we are pleased to now extend the opportunity to visitors to stay overnight at another unique Fairmont property,” said Jean-Francois Vary, general manager, Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square. “Ghirardelli Square, with its historic significance and spectacular location, combined with the superior service and amenities provided by Fairmont Heritage Place, represents the quintessential vacation experience.”

Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square owners and guests enjoy an array of personalized services and amenities — from exclusive access to many of the Ghirardelli Square shops and restaurants to a dedicated concierge team, butler service, Maserati Quattroporte house car service (as available), personal wine storage, and in-residence dining by any of the Ghirardelli Square restaurantswhile the site’s premier location serves as an ideal home base from which to enjoy San Francisco and Northern California’s many attractions.

Artfully blending historic ambience with modern luxury, the Fairmont Heritage Place homes offer expansive one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans that range from 750 to 1,900 square feet, large living spaces with up to 12-foot ceilings, modern kitchens with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, LCD televisions, in-home fireplaces and exposed brick. The large bedrooms feature spacious closets, Mascioni linens, 42-inch LCD televisions and private terraces with unobstructed views of the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island and the Marin County headlands.

New shops at Ghirardelli Square include Cellar360, an urban vineyard wine and food experience; Crown and Crumpet, a stylish and vibrant tea salon with delicious nibbles and libations; Kara’s Cupcakes, a San Francisco-based purveyor of organic cupcakes; Lola’s of North Beach, a high-end paper store offering personalized stationery and unique gift items; elizabethW, quality fragrances for bath, body & home; Peekadoodle Kidsclub, the Bay Area’s first premium, full-service, indoor family club; and much more.  Soon-to-open offerings include a new restaurant by famed chef Gary Danko opening later this year and a 10,000-square-foot Willow Stream Spa opening early 2010.
