The History of Ghirardelli Square
Fairmont Heritage Place has a prestigious location in historic Ghirardelli Square.
Since 1852 the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company has been located in the San Francisco area. In 1895, in search of more space for the ever-expanding company, Ghirardelli Chocolate relocated to what is now Ghirardelli Square and the site of its flagship Ghirardelli Chocolate Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop.
Today, millions of people visit Ghirardelli Square every year to indulge in Ghirardelli’s premium chocolates. At this flagship location, you can see the original chocolate-making equipment in operation.
Ghirardelli Square is as much a part of San Francisco as the Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars. It was declared an official city landmark and added to the National Historic Register in 1965.
Today, Ghirardelli Square contains an exciting mix of high-end retail, fine dining, artisan foods, wines and cheeses, art galleries, spa facilities and much more. The site’s premier location makes it the ideal home base from which to enjoy San Francisco and northern California’s many attractions.
