The Fairmont Hotel is located on Mason Street, atop Nob Hill, in San Francisco, California. It was nearing completion in April of 1906, when the Great Earthquake struck. Although the building surived it was ravaged by the ensuing fires. Rebuilding was immediatley undertaken and the hotel officially opened one year later, in April of 1907. The Beaux-Arts style hotel was designed by architect Julia Morgan for Theresa Fair Oelrichs and Virginia Fair Vanderbilt, who erected the structure in memory of their father, Senator James Graham Fair. In later years the hotel played host to delegates from around the world who met here for meetings which resulted in the creation of the United Nations. The original charter was written in the Garden Room in 1945. In 1961, performing in the Venetian Room, singer Tony Bennett first performed his classic "I Left My Heart In San Francisco." The Fairmont also served as the setting for the fictitious St. Gregory Hotel in the television series Hotel, which ran from 1983 to 1988. Establishing shots were filmed at and around the hotel's exterior. The Fairmont was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. It is also San Francisco Designated Landmark #185.
