This hotel is very pretty inside. More like a boutique hotel. The rooms were nice, bathroom is small. Service is very good. The location is great. In Nob Hill, on California Street right at a cable car stop.

My wife and I stayed at the Stanford Court over the 4th July weekend and found it to be excellent. All of the staff were professional yet friendly, the room was spacious and very comfortable and the view was terrific. The hotel is on the corner of two cable car lines so getting around if you don't fancy tackling the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this beautiful hotel at the top of Nob Hill. I was first impressed with the beautiful brick circular entry with its lovely fountain. It was nice to get off the street in a relaxed setting and be greeted with a very friendly staff. This helped to calm our nerves after some hectic city... More

Great location in San Fran. Not a lot in the immediate area but a short walk will take you everywhere. There are many food and shopping places in the surrounding area. Good views from just walking around the hotel. The checkin was quick and easy. the rooms although somewhat small were very comfortable. the bed was great and temperature actually... More

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night on July 4th to see the fireworks, and the room was very clean and spacious, although we booked a Studio Suite, but there was no sofabed (which I thought there would be) or a separate room which most suites come with. We had a 14 month old with us and assumed we... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us on Trip Advisor. I am happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the holiday and fireworks in the City. I apologize for the confusion regarding your studio-suite room, which is larger than our double rooms and classified as a suite based on its size. A sofa bed is available upon request... More

Decent hotel in a great location. Rooms are small. Paid extra for a room with a view, I would not recommend that. Very loud the cable cars clank late into the night. Bathrooms are very tight but the beds are comfortable.

Thank you for the comments about your stay. I’m glad that you found our beds to your liking. I’m sorry that you were disturbed by the sounds of the cable cars. We are fortunate to be on its path; however, it does subject us to its noise. I hope you found some relief with the complimentary earplugs provided in your... More

This could have been the perfect hotel, but it is not. I am so sorry to have to write a bad review, but the attitude of the female concierge was just nasty (the men were lovely), and check in was a joke. Even though I had made the reservation, had the email and phone in my name, because the reservation... More

Beautiful room, beautiful view, comfy bed, can't fault it really except for maybe the bar meals if you are vegetarian, but plenty of places to eat in the area anyway. Easy walk to the shops & easy jump on the cable car to Fishermans Wharf.
