My wife and I have visited the Huntington regularly for many years, the last time in early December, 2013, when we learned they were closing for an extensive rennovation that one staff member anxiously referred to as what they feared would be a "bordello" look. If you are going to book this hotel, please refer to the new photos on... More

I have stayed at The Huntington a few times now and this review can account for all visits. The Huntington is an intimate hotel nestled in Nob Hill. I loved the elegance and vintage feel of the hotel, rooms and Big 4, their restaurant. Though an older property, the service and cleanliness make up for it. My favorite part about... More

Dear Justine, Thank you for your glowing review! 'Refreshing, Relaxing, and Ritzy' is precisely what we strive for. As you may know, we are currently undergoing an extensive renovation, and much of the hotel is receiving a magnificent face lift. We are retaining what our guests love most about the hotel- the first class service, and inimitable details such as... More

Location, confortable, clean and service is top. Tax convenience is charge To support The business structure of The hotel. I don't like. First because I stayed there by vacation and second because I don't use that structure. If you require they remove!

This was my second stay in the past six months. I checked all the luxury hotels in the immediate area and the Huntington is by far the best value. Great rooms,service, bar, price and location. Even got into our room extra early. Shipley

My sister, husband and I got rooms at The Huntington Hotel in San Francisco for New Year's 2013. We arrived 12/30/13 and were meant to check out 01/01/14. We loved the rooms - large, comfortable, clean with views across San Francisco (we were on the 11th floor Room 1100). We could see Alcatraz from one window and the Top of... More

The place is spotless. The rooms are huge. And the bar is gorgeous (if a bit overpriced). Cable car right out front is a plus. Biggest minus is that there's no little shop to purchase anything. Not even a soda. We had to spend $20 for two glasses of orange juice from room service.

We stayed over the weekend, for three nights just before Christmas. We stay here a lot, and love it, and because the hotel's been purchased by a Chinese hotelier, we wanted to stay again before they close and remodel it. Recent reviews are probably reflective of the pre-closing changes in service and furnishings left in the rooms at this point;... More

Quite disappointed. The hotel has an extraordinary location on Nob Hill, but it is tired and the service is average. I was in a Star Suite: the room is huge and comfortable, but empty (look at the pictures): seems to be in the desert. Wi-Fi at a charge (10 USD) per item, so if you travel with smart phone, ipad...

I like staying on Nob Hill and wanted to stay at the Huntington for a change. Truly, the hotel is excellent. I arrived after an overnight train trip from Seattle and the train arrived at around 9am. Arrival was slightly marred by the fact that the room was not available - a common issue one finds when traveling in America.... More

The Huntington Hotel is a nice hotel in upper San Francisco in Nob Hill. Is has a very famous spa, that i didn't use, nice rooms but poor room service. The room service does not work 24 hours. The staff varies between very nice and not very nice.

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
