San Francisco, California – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The luxurious Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square is the only fractional ownership property in San Francisco, and now, through December 20, 2012, the hotel is offering guests the opportunity to experience the exclusive, five-star perks that come with ownership. If, after indulging in the special Keys to the Castle package, you decide to become an owner yourself, your stay is on the house.
Perfectly at home in what used to be Ghirardelli’s world-renowned chocolate factory (built in 1893), the all-suite Fairmont Heritage Palace was recently named the eighth top luxury hotel in the U.S. by TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards. In addition to a spectacular waterfront location and elegantly contemporary interiors, the hotel earns top marks for its amenities, everything from complimentary BMW bicycles and a chauffeured luxury house car, to iPads and daily wine and cheese receptions.
Next time you’re in San Francisco, opt for the Keys to the Castle package, and you’ll experience all this and more during your three-night stay in a one-, two- or three-bedroom Residence. The package includes two tickets to a current popular event in the best available seats arranged by the concierge, a chauffeured house car for a day of shopping or touring (max eight hours), a private in-room four-course dinner for two prepared by a top local chef and a private tour of Fairmont Heritage Place that will give you insight into the immense history behind this national landmark.
Residences, fully equipped to be second homes, feature breathtaking bay or city views and come complete with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances in the full kitchen, a Bosch washer and dryer and 42-inch flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms. Hardwood floors in the kitchen and living room, exposed original red brick, an open concept living space and a fireplace make for a chic urban oasis with a tranquil vibe. Several of the residences tout a private terrace as well.
Rates for the package start at $2,860, plus taxes.
