From the moment we arrived at the Huntington (ignore the Scarlet) it was evident that every one understood the difference between genuine Hospitality and the now more common Lodging Business approach i.e. Marriott, Starwood, Holliday Inn etc. Every single interaction we had with every employee over the last four days, was pleasant and highly professional. Thank you Ms Isono for... More

We spent a few days at the Scarlet Huntington and we had a very pleasant experience. First, we upgraded to a suite and the space in the room (and furnishing) was great. The overall ambiance in the hotel is very pleasant, including the bar at the ground floor. Service has been kind and efficient. The gym/spa was the only weak... More

We were catching up with some old friends and decided to all stay at the Scarlet Huntington as one of our party recommended it. There was no disappointment in his choice and our 3 day stay was more than rewarding. A very classy & traditional feel to the whole place - our rooms were very clean and well laid out.... More

Kitty corner to the Fairmont and one block from the Mark on Nob Hill is an intimate traditional hotel with class and a feel at prices that beat their rivals by 000's. My wife and I enjoyed the spa and work out room at no added expense, the staff is friendly and efficient. While we didn't eat there, we've heard... More

The Scarlet Huntington offers guests an outstanding urban retreat. From the moment arrived to their easy to find location, I was greeted by name and provided very good hospitality whenever I requested or asked something of the staff.

Stayed here a couple of times before the renovation and it was certainly feeling tired. Hotel now feels more modern, but with a stylish touch towards furnishings. Had a suite with a separate bedroom and very extremely spacious. Given its location on Nob Hill, presents better value for money than some of the more famous names nearby. Marked down on... More

I loved this hotel! Opening the windows over the bath tub and listening to the sounds of the trolley car was quintessential San Fransisco. The decor was great by designing a classic old world into a modern Art Deco type of look. We had a nice one bedroom suite and it was fantastic! The windows were so big and you... More

This is a historic landmark and its conversion is well done. Highly reccomend the suites as they are large and sun filled - we were on the 6th floor with a great view. The spa is an edded bonus and the Big 4 is clearly a local institution with many regulars.

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.
