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

We stayed here for 2 nights on routs to Maui. Staff here are great, friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. 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

Location, Location, location.......... This hotel is few blocks away from all the shopping (Union Sq.), lots of restaurants and close to the public transportations. 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

The room for comfortable and we were in room 9 on the 3rd floor. The hotel does lack in-room tea and coffee etc but that is the only thing missing, the... 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

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

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.
