We found the Nobb Hill Inn as it states an old Edwardian style hotel, the elevator also matched the hotel very old and slow.The room was spacious, bathroom was clean, water pressure was not very strong at all. We had the Junior suite which entailed a main bed and a pull out bed in another separate room which also had... More

We booked a suite for our family of 5. Lovely rooms and fantastic location. Staff are v helpful and friendly. Parking in nearby garage - great value too. We stayed during an unusual august heatwave so a little stuffy at night but no big problem. Housekeeping service is fantastic - thank you!

I stayed in the hotel fro two nights and really enjoyed the stay. The hotel is not from China town and from the trolley stop. You may walk and take bus and enjoy the scene. Grace Cathedral is located right behind the inn and the very top of the Nob Hill can get you the beautiful view of the city.... More

We were exploring San Fransisco and wanted something we could walk from. This was perfect, granted, my husband and I enjoy exploring new cities by foot. We stayed in the smallest room, and it's very cozy. For some folks I'm sure it might be a little small, but for us it was perfect. Some useful points- parking is a little... More

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

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.
