This is second stay at stanford court. Stayed both times because parking package rate was attractive. Bed is too soft for our taste. Music in elevator is obnoxiously loud and not what I want blasting at me on a Sunday morning. Room is quiet once you get there. Hotel is trying way too hard to be hip. Location is desirable... More

We had a really enjoyable stay at The Stanford. After road-tripping along the Pacific Coast Highway for days, it is exactly what we needed for our final stop in San Francisco. Luxurious but it also has a youthful and hip vibe to it. The location is perfect; right at the top of Nob Hill, therefore, you will have great views... More

Recently stayed at the Stanford. Beware of Bed Bugs....both of us were bitten. We are hoping that none of the critters decided to follow us home. Anyone staying at the Stanford is advised to thoroughly check their bed/room.

Arriving on foot at the top of Nob Hill is a little off putting at the Stanford as the underground/glass ceilinged entrance more or less anticipates arrival by car, limo, or taxi. However, once inside we were greeted by handsome desk manager Michael and treated like royalty. The hotel lobby is modern, sleek, and stylish, not at all baroque and... More

Right on top of Nob Hill, very posh location, a stone's throw from the legendary Fairmont. Rooms are clean, with nice beds and medium size bathrooms. Staff is very polite and friendly. The hotel doesn't feature a restaurant, so there's no room service facility or a proper and classic breakfast (you can order sweet and savory pastries and sandwiches at... More

Yes, it is quite an uphill walk, but the location is super, next to trolley, shopping, the Bart, restaurants, you name it! Our room was very comfortable, spacious, clean. Staff was pleasant, morning coffee, tea, and breakfast foods were invitingly set up in lobby restaurant, and everything was easy to get "to go" to take back to the room. The... More

Those are just two of the great features of this hotel. From the moment we stepped onto the property, the staff was welcoming and very helpful. The check in process was quick and smooth, and the desk clerk even gave yes directions to landmarks and attractions. The housekeeping/ cleanliness was impeccable - and I'm pretty picky about that! The view... More

This hotel is a mountain climb from Union Square. The walk up from Union square will give mussels you have never felt before a full work out! The hotel rooms are a good decent size which can be a rarity in a lot of hotels in San francisco center. The rooms are modern and cosey. The only thing I would... More

The staff at this hotel are unbeatable. Friendly, helpful and always happy. The location is at the top of a huge hill, but luckily there is a trolley car right in front, a doorman to help with cabs and you can always uber. Definitely recommend Stanford court and I will be back. The only downside is the bar and restaurant... More
