Quirky hotel with a lot of character... Coming from the giant Ritz Carlton/Marriott Live in La this was much more personal... The bellman to the concierge to room service was exceptional. Perfect position on the top of Nob hill 15mins from everywhere, great value for money and perfect for a city break. Rooms are small but very well equipped and... More

Elected to make a reservation here at the recommendation here based upon friends who have stayed here for years. Recently bought and renovated, the place is stately, immaculate and furnished with some over to top furnishings, but thankfully the hotel's character and architectural details were preserved to remember the past, unlike the decimation of another iconic hotel to the south,...

I have been staying in this hotel for years but my latest stay was my first since the hotel's major facelift. On the positive side, the location on the top of Nob Hill is superb and the staff are great and the restaurant is still a classic Nob Hill landmark. The stairs and bedroom corridors are still from the classic... More

Book well in advance, the occupancy level is always high. Good location on the Nob; cable car runs in front. Clean, comfy, polished but not pretentious. Helpful, friendly and efficient service! Bar wine by the glass a bit pricey, but probably not any more than other upscale hotels. This hotel will be a repeat stay for me; however, I am... More

Located in Nob Hill at the the top of California Street, this hotel has a style all its own. The staff was wonderful, the rooms very large (the building used to be residential) and the room service is delivered with white gloves, long stem rose, fine china....takes you back to old world elegance.

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
