The historic hotel is in the heart of San Francisco, top of Nob Hill. It is luxury at its finest with its customer service and hotel amenities. Its elegance doesn't stop at its decor, it's also in the warm welcome of the staff throughout the hotel. The room was also huge with a lounge area and great view of the...

I absolutely love this hotel and try to stay in it on every trip to SF. The location could not be better. Sits high on Nob Hill, just a few feet from fantastic restaurants and close to anywhere you want to go in the city. The hotel itself is beautiful, rooms are well-appointed, bar is dark and lovely, staff is...

Right in the center of the city, located a Nob Hill. Rooms were excellent. Location was great. We used Uber to travel around the city from there. There are places to walk nearby, but you may have to climb hills to return. We really enjoyed the bar area. Very charming bar. It was great to return each night for a...

I stayed at The Scarlet Huntingdon as part of a trip around California with husband and another couple of friends. Right from the warm welcome we received from the doorman, we were all delighted with our stay. We were upgraded to a sumptuous suite, with oodles of space, lovely long windows offering a view of Grace Cathedral, thick luxurious drapes...

I just returned from a 3 night 4 day get away with my adult son and his girl friend. The Scarlet Huntington was just the perfect place. The trolley stopped right out front, an Uber can be there in seconds and the prices are fantastic. The hotel was just amazing, the staff, the comfort, the spa. The Big 4 with...

A treasure of a hotel with warm welcoming staff without the scripted stuffiness of many high end hotels. The hotel restaurant and room service was delicious. The hot tub and pool were great. I left relaxed and happy, and even my teenager liked it-and shehates everything!

In all my travels, I have never experienced a staff like I have at the Scarlet Huntington. They went above and beyond every step of the way. Truly great people who enjoy what they do for a living. I want to personally thank James, Jason, Cornelius, Ulysses, Maureen, Carlton and housekeeping (thanks for the daily notes!). You guys rock!

The Scarlet Huntington more than lived up to its historic place at the forefront of San Francisco hotels. The rooms boast high ceilings, great bathrooms, comfortable beds, and are extremely spacious... I've become used to small hotel rooms in SF, but you will not find any here! The lobby is well appointed, the spa is world class (the views are...

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
