The Scarlet Huntington (formerly The Huntington) is an institution that has been redecorated to appeal to a younger trendier market IMHO. I did like the makeover, I thought it was well done without looking tacky. It is on the top of one of the biggest hills in SF, amongst a number of other high class, expensive hotels. It's over the...

Classic intimacy, Top of Nob Hill location with Fab view, and Scarlet redesign make The Huntington my favorite Sleeping in a Rich Mans Castle hotel choice in San Francisco. The personnel know how to discreetly make you feel like you 're somebody famous, and the piping room service seems to always come at the right moment. Thank you for a...

Dear Insider, Thank you ever so much for your commendatory review! I believe you described our stately hotel in a way no other guest has done before. I agree with your whimsical description, as the Scarlet Huntington is indeed 'rich mans castle'- looking down at the rest of San Francisco with its sweeping views and richly decorated interior. I am...

When we stepped out of our cab, Jason, the bellman welcomed us warmly to the hotel and told us about places in the area. The room blew me away. It was huge! The Colors were bright and welcoming. Bed is comfortable but requested pillows from housekeeping. The ones on bed were too fat. I'm enjoying sitting on the couch watching...

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is located at top of Nobhill. This is a nice location not too busy but good proximity to everything. Either by walking, cab or street car. Stayed on the 6th floor facing the park. View is great. The street car is a bit nosey if you leave your windows open. But...

The place was OK, but at close to $400 per night that we paid it should have been better: charging $20 per day extra for wifi is cheeky; having an empty minibar in the room is not good; closing the bar for a private event is also not good. Despite this the staff were very helpful, the view from the...

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
