this is a very good hotel, but not my favorite in SF. First of all the location... It is in the very posh block at the top of nob hill. Lovely views of the city if you get the right room. But being at the top of the hill means lots of walking if you want to get down to... More

Ok, so arrived at the Scarlet Huntington, Nob Hill and was delighted to recognise it as a hotel I strolled passed back in July but never got the chance to go into. From the start, the staff were very pleasant and helpful - lovely bright lobby in this cool boutique hotel right beside Grace Cathedral. I was very lucky to... More

The hotel, although not close to activities, is an oasis in the city. The room was large (twice the size of a normal room; suite size) with a comfortable bed and flat screen television. The view included the beautiful Grace Cathedral. Room service was pricey, but the longest wait was 15 min. Food was hot and good. (Slightly limited selection).... More

Fancy luxurious lobby with a piano bar in reach from which you hear the music while doing the check-in. Excellent, cozy and spacious rooms. Super comfortable bed, big closet and a great bathroom. Cool view over the Huntington Park with Christmas decorations. Sloppy breakfast, no available information on what can be ordered, unless you order room service, impersonal service with... More

Celebrating our wedding anniversary and hadn't been to San Francisco in years -- this hotel made the experience exceptional.

Excellent hotel. The staff (including the bell boys and chamber maids ) were extremely helpful and polite, the rooms were beautifully decorated and equipped and the bar and restaurant were superb especially if you like the old world charm of dark wood and green leather. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and although quite expensive we felt it worthwhile for the... More

My husband spent a couple of nights at the Scarlet Huntington per a friend's recommendation & we were NOT disappointed! We were fortunate to stay in a 12th/top floor room with amazing views of the city & water. The bed was very comfortable & clean. I thought the main room & bathroom were quite large for a boutique hotel. Seeing... More

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.
