Our family of three spent Christmas night at the Stanford Court. When our car suddenly developed trouble with starting, the valet crew quickly came up with a plan to help us so we wouldn't miss an early morning airport departure. They made sure we knew what the potential trouble was, and then informed us about where the closest dealerships were... More

The Stanford Court is beautifully located on Nob Hill opposite the Fairmont and adjacent to the Mark Hopkins. It offers easy access to Downtown SF, Chinatown (on Grant), the Financial District, and North Beach. The rooms are reasonably roomy, well-maintained, and cared for by an attentive staff. While meal service, including breakfast, is a little on the basic side, the... More

I was looking for hotels in the Union Square area, on Expedia, trivago, tripadvisor, etc. So I decided for this one based on the pictures and comments. Rooms are clean and well maintained, bathroom nice, my daughter loved the heated towel rack. Bed comfortable, I got a good rate at Expedia of $164 for Friday and Saturday. Location is great,...

This right at the corner of California & Powell so you had the cable cars coming right by the door. I had a lower floor room facing Powell, so you could hear the cable car (you really get that San Francisco feeling, but it stops running fairly early so does not impact sleeping. (ask for a higher room away from... More

Directly on Powell street where the tram passes in the way "down" to Market street shops. Nice lobby with high tech amenities like Mac stations to browse the web and print boarding passes etc. Rooms are specious with comfortable bed and arm chairs. Desk is convenient and wide enough to be productive. Hotel has a shuttle to take you down... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to celebrate her 21st birthday and our two year anniversary in San Francisco. After doing some thorough research, we decided on Stanford Court based on many factors: location to numerous tourist destinations, in-and-out valet privileges, very reasonable room prices, and overall great reviews. In order to make our stay unique and memorable, I decided to... More

The Stanford is a great hotel...very "hip" and very helpful staff. My room was comfortable- nice amenities and plenty of room for a restless business traveler. Walked the hill once after a long day but taxis are easy to wave down and drive you up the hill. Fantastic view from the top!

so i'm an idiot, which makes me a particularly frustrating guest--i do really dumb things like accidentally think i'm booked an extra day. when i did exactly that on my most recent stay here, Steve from their Front Desk took AMAZING care of me. he called to see what was up, totally understood, and made it really easy for me...

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.
