We stayed at the Scarlet Huntington last week and it was a treat! Fantastic location, and world class views, combined with comfy bedding, helped make our stay that night, one of the most memorable stays for us in San Francisco. I grew up in the Bay Area and I have never seen that view of the park and Grace Cathedral,... More

Booked the Scarlet Huntington based on the Recommendation from Amex Platinum Concierge and was not disappointed. Loved the perk of the black car airport transfer, much more useful than the usual $100 spa credit. Location: Nob Hill. Perched at the the top of California Street 1/2 block from the Intercontinental Hotel. Easy walk to Union Square and Chinatown. Top of... More

They had a major renovation earlier in 2014. Renovation is beautiful! Rooms are up to date but the hotel has kept it's vintage charm. The rooms are much larger than the standard San Francisco room. I was amazed at how quiet the rooms were. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and because it is a smaller hotel, they recognize... More

We stayed here for our first trip to San Francisco and will be back soon! From the doorman greeting you to the front desk, the bartender and the concierge, we truly loved this historic hotel. The bar was a great classy place to unwind at the end of the day sightseeing. Our room was ample sized but had the charm... More

Having stayed at the Huntington for more than 20 years I was skeptical about the renovation as the fear was that yet another grand boutique hotel has been turned into a black lacquered, dark plastic, dreary, ultra modern European style monster. Definitely not the case with the Huntington. The designers have modernized without achieving the soullessness all to commonly encountered.... More

I have mixed feelings about this property, but the good generally outweighs the negative. I've written elsewhere that San Francisco, for being such a landmark city, is really lacking in terms of great hotel options in comparison with say NYC, LA or Chicago. I suppose the smallness of SF has something to do with this, but I really don't love... More

A long weekend getaway with my sister and this was perfect for us. Comfortable beds, clean, and spacious. It is at the top of Nob Hill and my sister and I like to walk when we travel -- our legs got a nice workout. One day, we were too tired to even think about walking back up the hill so... More

Dear Bella0302, Thank you so much for your kind remarks and recommendation. I'm glad to hear you and your sister enjoyed walking around Nob Hill and the surrounding areas. The hills in SF can seem bothersome, -that is- until you crest Nob Hill on Powell Street (half a block from our hotel). Suddenly the city falls away, and the resplendent... More

I stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the amazing service in particular! My room was on the top floor and was very comfortable, as well as having a lovely view of the adjacent park area. I would definitely recommend staying here. Close to the city and a few local restaurants if you don;t feel like hotel food!
