I've been a guest for 5 nights and the hotel is well located on top of the hill and only few minutes from Union Square. Rooms are very nice with vintage details. Tea and biscuits in the afternoon and very nice employees. Strongly suggested!!! You won't forget time there!

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here, the hotel has been beautifully restored and decorated and has an old world charm. Lovely location to stay in San Francisco and near all main attractions and cable car stop. Lovely staff couldn't be more obliging and are very knowledgable. Tea or sherry served from 4pm downstairs, very welcome after long day... More

Scored 2 queen rooms at the last minute for a post Christmas stay in the city. Ideally located near great food on site and nearby(Nob Hill Grill) and mass transit, walkable to anywhere too. A quaint, yet elegant, old school hotel, that makes efforts to be new(technology and amenities) but preserves and presents an experience that takes you back in... More

We left a really poor hotel and came here for the rest of our 3 nights. The first 2 nights we stayed on the top floor. The beds were clean and comfortable. The 3rd day we were asked to move to a new room as ours was a large room that they needed. This kinda frustrated me but we moved... More

This hotel is centrally located. Most of touristic attractions are at a walking distance. It is on a hill so you have to climb hills to get to the hotel: it's unavoidable but there is public transportation that brings you not too far from the hotel. It is an old hotel but very well maintained. Our room (#5) was tiny.... More

Its a good location for sightseeing close to china town and 30min walk to the wharf area. Rooms were clean and comfy with a real nice old world charm. The elevator is super cool too! Great stay.

If you are looking for a hotel with all the old world charm of San Francisco, then this is the place for you. It is a beautiful, quirky hotel in a great part of San Francisco, within easy reach of all the sights. The rooms are all individually furnished to a very high standard and the staff couldn't be more... More

Hotel itself is an old hotel, but staff are very friendly and the room is very clean. Not the best sleeping experience with the street noise (only in the morning since our room is right on... More

I know it's only a 3 star hotel but my wife and i had the worse room and bed I've ever stayed in. It was a dark room and had 2 small windows opening into a damp smelly dark alley. Although the area was great for restaurants, and good to walk down hill to the landmarks, but uphill at end... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood 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.
