We had a wonderful getaway weekend atop Nob Hill ... at an amazing price of only $151 per night, booked just a few days before our trip. This hotel is great if you seek quiet, class and a location that"s special, but not in the middle of tourist chaos ... at a very affordable price if you time it right.... More

We stayed at this hotel by bidding on priceline and we were suspicious at first, due to the price ($100/night for a Saturday), but we were most pleasantly surprised. This hotel is a gem, elegant and understated, located in one of the best areas in San Francisco (close to all the grand and pricey hotels) and in the center of... More

In my business life I am a Marriott guy. However, I usually like to try something different when I travel on my own dime. I can say that every time I come back to San Francisco (which is every August for the OutsideLands Music Festival) I will stay here. Nicely remodeled rooms and great service. I got a suite overlooking... More

This hotel is well located for either business or pleasure. It is just a short walk to Union Square or a short cable car ride to Fisherman's Wharf. The rooms are clean and comfortable and full of amenities. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful throughout my short two night stay.

Lovely hotel with nice rooms and a very comfortable bed. The check-in staff are very friendly as well as efficient. The bathroom is modern and I love the Aveda toiletries. The concierge really knows his way around good restaurants. I will be back.

Very friendly check in staff, gave us a great room on the corner of the bulding (bigger than the other rooms) Our room was a twin, 2 huge doubles, very comfy, mattress toppers, best nights sleep ive had in a while!

Nob Hill is home to some of the finest hotels in San Francisco. The location, in my opinion, cannot be beat. The Renaissance Stanford Court is my "go to" hotel and I always leave the hotel feeling content and well-taken care of. Some may complain about the walk up the hill from Market Street. I, however, love the challenge of... More

I recently stayed at the Renaissance for a conference I organized. In terms of the conference facilities and the hotel staff, I have nothing but the top level of praise. The staff were organized, helpful, pleasant and responsive -- on multiple levels. I would come here again for that alone. The rooms were also lovely with some wonderful pillows. I... More

I chose this hotel in the middle of San Francisco based on its location, TripAdvisor reviews and its rate (179.00). Being a light sleeper and someone who has trouble falling asleep with noise, I was a little anxious about the reviews that mentioned noise. I called the hotel directly to ask for a quiet room and then later called to... More

Now, don't get wrong. I'm not naive in terms of room rates and I fully expected to pay through the teeth for a room in San Francisco during a medical convention. So bear in mind that my rate was $499.00 per night, originally planned for 3 consecutive nights. Beyond the antiquated decor and carpeting throughout the hotel, and the fact... More
