We had a very nice stay at the Stanford Court. Excellent location, very easy to get to the wharf, North Beach, etc. Excellent staff, especially concierge Joe Rozo. We has an unfortunate experience when our Viator wine tour didn't pick us up, but Joe stepped in and recommended other possible options, and was genuinely concerned that we enjoy our trip....

The hotel is not too far away from all the things you'd like to do and see -- especially if you use one of the services like Lyft or Uber to get around (much less expensive and more convenient.) Use a ride service instead of car rental. If you do have a car, parking is $60/day which is WAY too...

The front desk staff was very helpful with my needs. Comfortable rooms, good gym, and can't beat the location. My test is always the water pressure in the shower, given conservation efforts. These showers are good. Add on $20 resort fee to room rate, FYI.

Unexpected additional 20$ fee per night (for the wifi & free water... what a joke) Lifts are not properly working (we can wait several minutes before getting one) Correct rooms (but still expensive when you are at the 1st floor on the courtyard)

We had one night before meeting up with friends and Stanford Court was very centrally located. Staff was very friendly and the view from our room was gorgeous! This fit our needs perfectly for a quick night in the city.

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.
