Nice place, great location, unhappy with check in. We arrived at 4 pm for check in, but our room wasn't ready. Went to an early dinner, back at 5:45, room still not ready. Front desk staff was rude and dismissive of our discomfort and told us " other people are waiting too." Other than that, we loved the room, the... More

We enjoyed this hotel for our business trip. The only problem we encountered was that we requested a "down-free" room due to a guest with a feather allergy and it was not feather free when we arrived.

Nice hotel in great location. I found the hotel's design (especially public areas Hard Rock - Vegas style) - looks a bit cheap - is aimed at younger people, but the prices, location and room's design for much more luxury customers. The staff were great and so helpful. We were upgraded to the room on the top floor next to... More

My rating is a blend of 5 stars for staff and friendliness, 1 (could be 0) for mechanics and noise problems in my room which were out of their immediate control late at night): heater was very noisy and heating could not reach far corners of the suite, much outside noise not sealed out by the windows (I had a...

While it was a business trip my wife accompanied me. We were comfortable but the bed is too soft. The hotel is in a convenient spot. Not too close to tourist areas but within walking distance of many.

The hotel was very modern looking and trendy. They have a social media/texting theme which is kind of trendy/funny. Very clean and new throughout. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Car valet is terrible and expensive. If I had stayed longer than 2 nights, I would have found somewhere else to park my car because it was ridiculously overpriced.

Thank you for your wonderful review. I am happy to hear that our dedicated team was able to make your stay more enjoyable. However, I am deeply sorry to hear about your experience with the valet. While parking in San Francisco is shockingly expensive, I promise that we are priced competitively to the other hotels in the area. I look... More

Friendly and good location, but even upgraded room was pretty basic and showing it's wear. Nothing really wrong, but nothing special, especially for the price. And a terrible TV too. No safe. No robes.

We stayed 4 nights. Its very conveniently located.. cable car stop is out the front door. Our room was very nice, very comfortable. All employees we came in contact with during our stay were extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. We were here for a convention and had a wonderful stay!

The good: location of this hotel is nice if you are here to visit San Francisco. It is centrally located, the California streetcar line is out front, Union Square and the theater district are just down the (very steep) hill. The staff was very friendly. The bad: the faded yellow carpet in the hallways. It looks dingy and really dates... 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.
