Stayed here on my most recent venture to SF. First and foremost, the staff I encountered, from the doorman, the to front desk, housekeeping, everyone, were top notch! The room was decent, very quaint, and a little old fashioned, but comfortable. Furnishings could definitely be updated but I think that's the them they're going for. Wifi was extra, in this...

Dear DevCon89, Thank you for feedback and comments. We can only improve from them. We are exploring the pricing of the Wifi. As for the parking, we do not own the garage but have negotiated the lowest pricing of any of the Nob Hill Hotels. I am delighted that the Staff met and exceeded your expectations. We do look forward...

Stayed here with my adult sister for a short girls getaway. I'm from NY and she from Oakland area. From the minute we pulled up (no parking zone BTW...) the staff was cheerful, friendly and accommodating. Jason at the door was THE BEST. He was so helpful and made us feel so welcome. Our room was fabulous! Great view of...

The door men are a credit to the hotel giving us a warm welcome and great advice every time. Reception staff were a bit offish. All in all a good stay but I do feel the hotel could make better use of the lobby area to improve the atmosphere.

We stayed here for the first time on a short (2 night) trip to San Francisco. The staff was very friendly and upgraded my wife and I to a suite. We thought this Nob Hill location was perfect for touring San Francisco for the first time. The hotel is across the street from Grace Cathedral and on the Cable Car...

I was there for only one night, and they upgraded me to an enormous suite for a very low price. So, thank you for that! The bathroom was huge and spotless. I loved the tub though could not figure out how to drain it. The amenities/shower gel etc were from a nice local-seeming brand. The bed was comfortable. The furniture...

Boutique hotel on California Street cable line in Nob Hill. Beautifully furnished and the restaurant was magnificently decorated, if a little expensive! Rooms very spacious and comfortable. Staff also helpful and attentive.

Very welcoming staff. Our 'superior' room, on the 12th floor was excellent. It had an amazing view of the city and the bay. Even the bathroom shower had a window with a view (can be opened to view). Excellent bed, room service, wifi free (if you sign up to their club which is easy), water bottles delivered every night. This...

I might be a bit wordy here. I have known this hotel for more than 37 years. For much of that time, it was family owned, and the staff who worked at the Huntington worked at the hotel forever. Though I lived in the area, I always put clients here, who wanted something that felt more like a old world...

Lovely hotel - we were upgraded to a suite, which was sumptuous. We had the best breakfast ever brought to our rooms. What an experience. We will never forget this holiday. Here are a couple of views from our suite.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. The Scarlet Huntington builds upon the property's original charm, graciousness and exceptionally high standards while introducing locals and visitors to a unique and avant-garde style that is influenced by a vibrant Singapore Peranakan heritage woven together with the opulence of San Francisco. More than just a name, The Scarlet possesses a distinguished charm and charismatic aura, likened to a gracious hostess who indulges guests with a luxurious stay experience. Providing a warm ad familiar welcome, the iconic red of the former Huntington Hotel's exterior - as displayed in the brick facade and illuminated sign high atop the hotel - will permeate the new aesthetic, representing the hotel's heritage while embracing the passion and allure defined by The Scarlet; offering uninhibited luxury to every guest. ... more   less
