Amazing, romantic hotel. Views over the city to die for. Great location on Nob Hill - easy connections to anywhere you want to go, lots of great restaurants nearby. The only problem with the location is that when returning to the hotel, it will be an uphill walk! Small enough for very personalized service - they made us feel like... More

The Stanford Court was our last stop along our two week honeymoon traveling California. Centrally located and reasonably priced this hotel is class. Upon our arrival we were greeted by such welcoming staff members that we felt like celebrities. The manager on duty Toby was so personable and generously upgraded us to the Presidential Suite! What a way to end... More

We booked this hotel through our Virgin package and we were very pleased with the service we recieved. Location really is the first point to make, situated on tram lines, you can easily go to union qs one way, or fishermans wharf the other way. China town is right nearby too. Lots of restaurants to choose from! Be sure to... More

This was a very good hotel that we found in Central San Francisco. It really has great stylish decor and is well thought out. It is located centrally, not a far walk from Fisherman's Wharf (not sure why you would want to go there) and down towards the ferry which is much more classy. Bedroom was a good size as... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on the first leg of our honeymoon and were treated really well upon check-in. The rooms are a little tired compared to the lobby and restaurant/bar areas but they are clean, tidy and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and we had plenty of room for our belongings. We ate in the restaurant the first... More

This is a 3 star hotel - it is overrated on Tripadvisor. While the hotel's lobby and marketing campaign are very new and modern, the rooms are old and tired. The bathrooms are particularly dated. I expected more for the price (and I know that San Fran is expensive). The location is nice, though. I deducted a point for the... More

We stayed 6 nights at Stanford Court. The rooms are very comfortable, and the staff is extremely friendly. Stanford Court is perfectly located at the corner of California St. and Powell St. Cable cars stop right outside the front door. Many of San Francisco's best restaurants are a quick trolley ride away. I definitely recommend this hotel, and will stay... More

My husband and I stayed here on our anniversary trip and it was great! The check in process was really quick and easy and our room was clean!

We stayed here for three nights and upgraded to a room with a view of the bay. Room was well appointed with a really comfy bed. Great location for Union Square and Chinatown but requires cabs if you want to go to Fisherman's Wharf. Concierge service was really helpful when we wanted to find a way to get to Napa... More

Had a 7 night stay here in late July/early August. Staff are great, rooms are really nice, comfortable beds. It is a bit more expensive but well worth it.
