“I have enjoyed a unique and cherished relationship with the Fairmont ever since I made my first public performance of my signature song, ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco,’ in the Venetian Room.

Golden Gate National Recreation Area

“I grew up and live in New York City so my favorite park in my hometown is Central Park and I know San Franciscans feel the same way about the recreation area with the magnificent view of the Golden Gate Bridge. When the bridge catches the sunlight there is nothing more beautiful—what a magnificent place to have in the city.” -Tony Bennett

“Jazz is the authentic music of the United States and is one of the greatest gifts we have given to world culture. Any place on earth that celebrates jazz music is going to have me as a fan.
