I stayed here in December 2014 during a conference at the Mosconi Center. While this is not an optimal location for Mosconi, I'm very glad I stayed at the Huntington. It is a great hotel with superb service and location. There are a lot of nice hotels in SF, but the Huntington stands out for me now because of the... More

This hotel has the classic luxury feeling. It seems there were rennovations recently that add elegant and hip touch! The location is good and the staff was awesome. I bring my iPad during my travel. If this hotel can also provide more technology service such as Foli app, where I can read digital magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle for free,... More

My husband and I spent a week at this hotel and look forward to returning. The trip from the airport (SFO) was swift and staff was extremely welcoming upon our arrival. We were given a complimentary upgrade from the room we booked and offered the opportunity to book a room another level up for an extra $300; however, we declined,... More

This hotel was bought by a Singapore investment co. and is impeccably run like a European boutique hotel The rooms are large. We were upgraded to a suite but peeked into a couple of regular rooms which are large, have a sitting area etc. The spa is lovely, and although in the basement, has a terrace that overlooks part of...

Dear Crisimanager 6., Thank you ever so much for your laudatory review! I was delighted upon reading your notes: "impeccably run like a European boutique hotel". We have nearly a centuries worth of experience (90 years) running as both a luxury apartment building and hotel. Constructed in 1924 as The Huntington Apartments, we were the first luxury high-rise apartment building... More

I made a last minute reservation for my last night in San Francisco here. The stay was great. The hotel was in a nice location at the top of Nob Hill. The room was large, quiet, and overall very clean. Hotel staff and was very courteous. Overall the stay was $300/night and it is a good value. The hotel bar/restaurant... More

Located on top of Nob Hill. Very clean and very quiet. Excellent location, you can either hop into the cable car or walk to go to Chinatown, financial district, shops and restaurants. The spa has excellent staff, professional and has a calming and relaxing environment. We enjoyed our stay and plan to go back to the hotel when we go... More

I stayed at the Scarlet for one night this past weekend. I really didn't know what to expect (some of the reviews were mixed) but I decided to give it a shot. The hotel FAR exceeded my expectations (not sure WHY some of the reviews were negative). I had a lovely and LARGE room; everything appeared to be brand new.... More

Our 2 night stay here was very comfortable, our room on the 9th floor looked like the smallest on the floor from the plan on the back of the door, but even so it was a decent size, had a good bed and wasn't too noisy. Decor in the room was great, different but tasteful. The bathroom was a little... More

My co-worker and I were in SanFrancisco for a conference at the Fairmont. The Fairmont was booked, so we chose the Scarlet Huntington due to its close proximity to the Fairmont.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
