Really impressed with this hotel. After researching rooms and rates for months prior to an event we were attending in the city I finally came across The Scarlet Hunington. Although it was still more then I was wanting to pay (unfortunately there were several events going on this weekend so prices were practically tripled) I went ahead and booked it... More

So glad I chose this hotel to stay in during our visit to San Francisco. The Scarlet Huntington is situated at the top of Nob Hill, a very pleasant district of San Francisco. It is not too far from Union Square which is a 10 minute downhill walk from the hotel. I have read reviews which state that the uphill... More

I visited the Scarlet HUntington this summer with a party of 10 - we had age ranges between 6 and 75. The property is great, clean and functional. The rooms - I'd asked for Junior Suites were possibly the most spacious I've ever been in and well done too. My 8 year old niece actually did a little happy dance... More

Great friendly service. Loved the spacious room and comfortable bed. The bar/restaurant was a hit as well. Great breakfast. Located atop Nob Hill so if you dont mind walking China Town and Fishermans Wharf are in walking distance. You can always take the trolley to get back up the hill!

This hotel was divine! Awesome location within 2 blocks of the Trolley going to Fisherman's Wharf...we walked it also, so it wasn't to far. Be prepared tho the roads are steep steep walking back. The bay was visible from our room so that was an added plus. I would highly suggest not getting a rent car as parking is upwards... 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.
