Located at the top of Nob Hill in the heart of San Francisco, the historic Fairmont Hotel offers stunning views of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay. The hotel takes up a city block between Powell and Mason Streets and Stockton and California Streets.
The Fairmont is serviced by the Number 1 bus line and three cable car lines: the Powell and Mason line, the Powell and Hyde line and the California Street line.
Travelers coming in from either the San Francisco International Airport or the Oakland International Airport can take the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to downtown San Francisco and connect to either the cable car or bus lines.
Travelers can connect to the Number 1 bus and the California Street cable car line from the Embarcadero BART station.
Travelers can connect to either the Powell and Hyde and the Powell and Mason cable cars from the Powell Street BART Station.

Whenever possible, we encourage the use of public transportation. Parking on Nob Hill is fairly scarce. If you need to drive, consider parking somewhere along the #1 California MUNI bus line. It is one the city’s most frequent, dependable lines and has very convenient stops near the Cathedral both inbound and outbound.
From San Francisco International Airport: Reservations are recommended. See or call 1-800-BLUE-VAN (258-3826).
From Oakland International Airport: Several shuttle companies offer services from Oakland International. You can visit their shuttle information page to get more information and call individual companies for rates. 
Please note that due to COVID-19, many of the shared van companies are offering limited service and therefore have increased prices substantially. A taxi or Uber/Lyft are likely the most cost-effective options available to you.
