We picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews since we had never been to SF before. I'm glad my research paid off because the location was ideal. The neighborhood is nice and there were lots of restaurants within walking distance. There are cable cars right outside that run to the financial district, and 2 blocks down was the stop for...

We last stayed at the Huntington 3 years ago and had a great time. Since then, it has been substantially renovated, and now it is even better. The halls have fresh carpeting, and our room (which was fabulous thanks to an upgrade) had been completely rehabilitated. Now I'm even more of a fan.

Our room was enormous and very comfortable. The bathroom was pretty old fashioned but perfectly functional. We had a room service meal one night which was actually good value; prompt and hot and brought in on a table on wheels so that we could eat comfortably at a table (often an issue with hotel room service meals). The location is... More

The hotel was picked via Hot Wire. It was a pleasant stay. The hotel is an older building. My only complaint is that the room was extremely hot. No AC in the rooms. The staff was very friendly, business center was free, pool, hot tub and fitness room. In walking distance to popular areas of town. The hotel acts real... More

The Scarlet Huntington is situated at the top of Nob Hill and was a great choice and experience. From the purple chaise and zebra chairs in the lobby to the gold and red color scheme of our living room (upgrade, thank you very much!) the huge bathroom and wonderful city and water view from our windows made this a definite...

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.
