Alcatraz or Sausalito
Take a ferry to Sausalito or a boat trip to Alcatraz. Both experiences provide you with a spectacular view of the City by the Bay as you travel by boat to your destination. Sausalito provides a day of charming shops, restaurants and art galleries, while the trip to Alcatraz provides an interesting look at the island’s history through a self-guided audio tour.

Located only 46 miles north of San Francisco is the beautiful and breathtaking Wine Country. Visit one of the 250 wineries located in this region, some of which date back to the early 19th century. Be certain to visit our sister property, Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, only a 50-drive from San Francisco and home to a 40,000 square-foot spa, championship 18-hole golf course and Michelin-star fine dining restaurant.

Napa Valley

Located 61 miles away from the hotel is the world-famous Napa Valley. Discover world-acclaimed wineries, Michelin-star restaurants, healing spas, cultural arts,  and outdoor recreation.

Muir Woods

Located 15 miles north of San Francisco is Muir Woods National Monument.  Walk among old growth coast redwoods, cooling their roots in the fresh water of Redwood Creek and lifting their crowns to reach the sun and fog. Federally protected as a National Monument since 1908, this primeval forest is both refuge and laboratory, revealing our relationship with the living landscape. What will you discover in Muir Woods?
