Which hotel was once a chocolate factory?
If you guessed Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square (1893) in San Francisco, California, you guessed correctly! Italian-born Domingo Ghirardelli moved to California in 1849 during the gold rush to seek his fortune. One could say that he struck "chocolate gold" and in San Francisco, he built his empire. After years overseas, Ghirardelli's business evolved into something well-recognized and known for its superiority in quality. The Roth family restored the square after the chocolate factory moved across the bay and by bringing in specialty shops and fine dining establishments, Ghirardelli Square is a must-see tourist destination.
Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square allows guests to comfortably explore the depths of San Francisco from a residence-style hotel with luxury amenities such as butler service and chauffer service within two miles of the hotel.
