Good hotel, with reasonably spacious rooms. The bordello look to the rooms make it interesting. Reasonably priced for the area. It is located at the top of Nob hill, which is where all the other high-end hotels area. In fact, the whole area is quite posh... Very old-school and cute actually. The rooms are reasonably sized and comfortable. In room... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights after a stay in Napa Valley. It's located within walking distance to almost everything. The staff was exceptional. We were immediately upgraded to a suite upon check in without even requesting an upgrade. Our room was very spacious and the view of Grace Cathedral was beautiful. The price was also very reasonable... More

Service was outstanding-doormen/bellhops were fantastic! The room overlooked the park, was bigger than expected for a city hotel, and very very clean. The bed was comfortable and we didn't hear the traffic noise below. I know there are some comments against the decor, but we liked it-it was different and interesting instead of the stuffy marble overkill seen in other... More

Rooms were surprisingly spacious for a big city downtown hotel. Staff was incredibly helpful and had an answer for everything... whether it was a good local pizza joint or the best way to get to the Giants game. The spa and infinity pool is fantastic, BUT you have to be over 16 to use it so be aware if you... More

We had outstanding service from the concierge, door staff, receptionists and housekeeping staff. The decor of the hotel was beautiful. We were lucky to receive an upgrade and the suite was massive!

We have just stayed at The Huntingdon. Great location (yes, you need to walk up a steep hill to get here). Trendy lobby, great bar and restaurant at night although it's odd having breakfast in the dark as there is no natural light. We were upgraded to a large suite which was great. Service is decent, not spectacular. The concierge... More

The rumors were rampant as to what would reappear when the Big Four and the hotel reopened Candidly, it is an interesting juxtaposition between the two. I had an interesting suite which I thoroughly enjoyed after I got over the initial shock of thinking I was walking into a fancy brothel. The real issue with the suite was that it... More

Enjoyed our stay at Scarlet Huntington. The bar is the place to be for pre- dinner drinks. Worthwhile spending a few leisure hours in the bar! Lovely atmosphere, with the piano music in the background. The hotel is on Nob Hill and everything else is closer to sea level. Thus lovely views of the surrounding area, but there is always... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent location and great curb appeal of this hotel. It is in a very commanding position, the only downside being it is always a big uphill walk back home no matter where you go, you learn quickly how steep San Fran is! Sadly the staff were not up to the standard one would expect... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. The Scarlet Huntington builds upon the property's original charm, graciousness and exceptionally high standards while introducing locals and visitors to a unique and avant-garde style that is influenced by a vibrant Singapore Peranakan heritage woven together with the opulence of San Francisco. More than just a name, The Scarlet possesses a distinguished charm and charismatic aura, likened to a gracious hostess who indulges guests with a luxurious stay experience. Providing a warm ad familiar welcome, the iconic red of the former Huntington Hotel's exterior - as displayed in the brick facade and illuminated sign high atop the hotel - will permeate the new aesthetic, representing the hotel's heritage while embracing the passion and allure defined by The Scarlet; offering uninhibited luxury to every guest. ... more   less
