I'm actually writing this review from my room. It's spacious, beautiful, clean, and nicely decorated. The staff has been absolutely wonderful. I'm staying here with my wife for our honeymoon and I'm so glad we did. We love the location and everything that this property has to offer. Thank you to everyone at the Scarlet Huntington for making this visit... More

Decided to treat ourselves on our Californian tour and choose this based on good deal and other Internet reviews but could easily have closed several others - choice was a bit arbitrary. Result! Firstly we were upgraded to a very large room with a great view of Grace Cathedral opposite. The room facilities were excellent you would expect of this... More

This hotel is a very nice property that had been recently remodeled. Rooms were very large and very nicely furnished. Hotel was very quiet and is in a great location close to Chinatown and in between the wharf area and Union Square. Staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Would definitely stay there again.

Stunning hotel. Beautifully and tastefully decorated. IMMACULATELY clean and extremely well appointed. Huge room. Great location for San Francisco (but - at the top of a very steep hill!) Would highly recommend staying here. Would recommend eating at OSSO Steakhouse just a couple of doors down - sublime.

Hotel has great staff, nice rooms and great food ! The restaurant downstairs has tons of flys but food was good. Comfortable bed and large entry into room, large closet and bathroom. Windows all opened , no screens. Hotel is on a large hill so I feel like every room will have a nice view. Our view was nice.

Upgraded to a very high standard, our deluxe room as spacious and beautifully decorated. It was immaculately clean and a wonderful property. It is a wonderful location opposite Grace Cathedral on the California Street cable car line. Chris the concierge was particularly helpful and charming.

I've been staying at the Huntington for years. I love the location, the staff is excellent and The Big Four bar/restaurant is welcoming and fun. I'm just not too sure about the new décor after the remodel of the property. The former Huntington was so charming and historic - what I loved most about it. It is still very clean... More

Most times, my husband and I will stay at a larger hotel (Four Seasons, Ritz, Fairmont, etc) when we travel but we were looking for something charming and more intimate for our 2 night stay in San Francisco.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a lovely hotel with super-friendly and customer-focused staff. Yes there are a few points that grate (paying for wifi is just not on in a place of this calibre) and a touch saccharine decor in places, but this is a super hotel in a great location. Rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The bar... 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
