There is no insulation between rooms, so you hear the bath being run and then the person having a bath! Ditto shower. Corridors reverberate and people seem toned to talk at high volume when they exit the lift :( Breakfast good, dinner limited choices.More

The kitchen staff will be happy to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast. I’m confused about the menu choices, though. We certainly do not offer a multi-page menu, but what we do have is delicious. My favorites are the neighborhood specialties. I hope to welcome...More

I am so happy that you enjoyed you visit. Your review highlighted an exceptional number of great features in our hotel. Housekeeping will be beside themselves to hear about their “high standard.” Thank you.

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

were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
