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

The price of the room was $175.00 per night. The hotel down the street on California/ Taylor is over $400.00 per night. The initials of the hotel is hh. I had stayed at the hotel last year. This hotel actually had a better room. The room itself had a vintage feel and was very cozy.The hotel staff had immediately greeted... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, as the start of our recent holiday in California. As first-timers in San Francisco it was great to be in such a central location, and on one of those fabled steep hills! With cable cars running close by, the cathedral a minute away, and a couple of rooftop bars to choose from, this is... More

Nice historic feel to this mansion type property built after the 1906 earthquake. Clearly therefore the rooms are on the smaller side but are nicely furnished in keeping with the period feel (as is the quirky elevator!). Lots of good information given by the receptionists on arrival and in the room manuals. Nice touches include the tea and sherry from... More

Because San Francisco is an expensive place to stay, this is a good compromise, but be prepared for a small room with no views...and no tea or coffee making facilities...OK location, lots of buses and accessible to wherever you want to go...but a bit of a walk...especially beware if you don't like hills...good wifi and nice touch having tea and...

This is an Historic building hotel, which used to be a famous family mansion, is Just THE BEST! The rooms are also VERY historic, but LOVELY! The staff brought us bagels and cream cheese with coffee every morning to our room for a very reasonable small charge. Each time it made our whole day wonderful!

I was in a one-bedroom apartment, with the bedroom in the middle, and a spacious bathroom behind the bedroom. The mini- kitchen was nice, but larger cooking pots were needed to cook for my family. Temps were in the high sixties, so msome ventilation was needed--but opening the back window of the bedroom resulted in a moldy smell from outside... More

Great staff and great location but I recommend staying when you can sleep with closed windows. I stayed there on an unusually hot summer day and heard cars accelerating to go up the hill next to the hotel for most of the night. Room was nice sized and very clean

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.
