My stay was great, I would have given the Stanford Court a 4-5 star rating had I not been surprised at check-out. Checking out I was told that I owed $90 more, for the "urban package", a $20/day package that includes WiFi and coffee/juice. At no point was I asked if I would like this package, it was assumed.

If you want to be in the middle of all the action in San Francisco, this is the place to stay. However, DO NOT use their valet service. We did ONE night until we found it cost us $54!!! We moved the car to the Cathedral Parking across the street, and it was $32.

Not the best. Rooms need rennovation. You have to go to the first floor to get ice. Requested decaf coffee for the room by phone. It was never delivered. Elevator was broken on two days! And not even an apology or comment from the manager or staff!

$20 plus taxes daily not declared at check in! They call it "urban bundle fee"! We checked next door at a competitor and they never heard of such behavior! We've stayed here before, Never again!! If you need to raise your rates, declare it up front!

Stayed for one nigjt and have no complaints. Staff was great and very helpful. Room was fairly big and comfortable. Having bicycles for use as part of the resort charge is nice, as is the water bottle. I would stay here again.

Great experience! Super classy location, service, and staff. My room had a great view and every request was met quickly and efficiently by staff in this classic San Francisco property. Near Cable Car, Union Sq. restaurants and shopping. Francisco property. Restaurant needs an upgrade, however.

There is an extra $20 "Urban Bundle" automatic charge hidden from the list price. Be aware. The Urban Bundle includes coffee pods (they offer Starbucks pods). However, we receive only 1 Starbucks coffee pod the 2nd day. That is only good for one cup. BAD bundle & charge.

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.
