Great hotel..very comfortable. Good location. My only complaint is for a hotel in this price range they must have a better workout facility. It's a box w two treadmills and yet they have a huge spa. Makes no sense and if I'm spending this kind of money-I expect a better gym. The fairmont across the street is less $ and... More

My wife and I used this hotel for our vacation and loved it. The staff helped us with special requests and dinnner reservations, directions etc. We got the basic room and it was more than adequate. Comfortable bed and roomy bathroom with nice shower. Ideal location in Nob Hill. We ate in their restaurant one night and it was very... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. It was originally a trip for 2, but at the last minute we became 3. The hotel was full, but they were able to put us in a premium room with a roll away bed. It was great. The room was plenty big to accommodate us without tripping all over each... More

The moment we arrived, we were greeted with a smile from everyone at front of house, were up-graded to a suite on the 9th floor, and it only got better from there. The suite was beautifully furnished, everything worked, the bed was huge and the views were stupendous. The concierge (Chris) was very helpful, giving us directions round San Francisco... More

Our suite on the 12th floor was so sweet -- amazing views all around, spacious, comfortable bed, trendy furnishings. The location of the Scarlet Huntington is ideal. You are in an upscale neighborhood with a park across the street and next door and the trolley line right outside your doorstep. And, you're close to all the major attractions: Union Square,...

Stayed at this hotel for a vacation. The location was great and within a block of a cable car stop. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, including the driver who is available as a courtesy within the Financial District. Nice small balcony off the infinity pool and spa area, for morning coffee or evening cocktail. The only real disappointment... 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.
