A very comfortable business stay. Nice and clean hotel, no problems encountered. Walkable to Union Square, with only one concern - Hotel sits on the top of the hill, so can be a little challenging climb when walking. Other than that, staff and services were great.

Stay was great. Hill is a bit high on foot, but with the cable car lines right in front, it'seasy to get there from anywhere. Would definitely return to this hotel anytime I'm in SF! Keep up the great work guys!

Right in the heart of San Francisco. Near lots of places to hang out, easy commuting and walking. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Comfy beds, clean, and nice decor. Big vanity and sink area, perfect for 3 women sharing a room. Pictures of the room made by other reviewers accurately show the room amenties. Hardly heard any noise disruptions.... More

The hotel is on top of the highest hill in downtown SF, close to Chinatown and mostly run by the Chinese, but the location is worth it. Plenty of amenities, nice rooms (though I've heard they have bad rooms too, but premier ones are slightly more expensive) and cozy atmosphere.

The Stanford is in a great location close to the business district and close to union square. The rooms were great, there were excellently placed outlets in the room and towel warmer. I had a great view from the room. The bed was really comfortable I wanted to take it home with me. Loved the elevator music! Also loved the... More

Good hotel with great qualities. The one bed queen room was a little small but nice. There was a lot of noise you can hear from outside and people in the hallway. Besides that it was a good stay. Nice little gym and the service was great!

I wish they would offer tea as an option in their rooms for non-coffee drinkers :(. Nice hotel, although being on top of Nob Hill, it was less convenient to make trips to nearby shops for tea etc. Great exercise going up and down the hill though, and excellent views from atop!

I have recently stayed here on a short stop over in San Francisco. The good thing about the hotel was the staff who were all very helpful and friendly. That's it. The rooms were average and I did have to call housekeeping to re-clean my bathroom and it was all looking a tad shabby. I do not know who chose... More

This is the second time I stayed at the Stanford Court. The hotel is clean, comfortable and reasonable. However my experience this time at the front desk was terrible. The front desk staff was rude, disrespectful, and uncaring. They are a poor representation of the hotel.

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.
