Farewell Favorites: Crown Room
In 2001 the Fairmont Hotel completed an $85 million dollar renovation but closed its Crown Room to the public, except for certain holidays like Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve. Twenty-four stories atop the hotel's tower, the Crown Room is accessible by a special direct elevator at the back of the Fairmont lobby. The Crown Room is available for private parties but it's too bad the sublime views from this special location above Nob Hill are no longer regularly accessible to visitors and locals for whom the Top of the Mark is just not high enough.
