Quite possibly the most popular wedding venue in all of San Francisco, the Fairmont is kind of an essential stop, even if it’s just to take in the lobby in all its candy-colored, chintzy glory. The massive 592-room hotel sits at the top of Nob Hill and is home to a wonderful fancy restaurant, a great afternoon tea service, and honeybee hives in the herb garden. Then there’s the gloriously kitschy Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar. A Tiki bar, complete with a lagoon and spontaneous indoor thunderstorms, may be the last thing you’d expect to see inside a Fairmont but it kind of works.
