We had a first visit to the Huntington this past weekend; and were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite - room 1001 on the tenth floor. Sweeping views over Fisherman's Wharf to Alcatraz and beyond on one side, and out towards the Bay Bridge on the other. Room was so enjoyable, we wanted to hang out in it, and a great place to recover after a day of site seeing.
A quick few blocks downhill to Union Square (or tough climb up) the location worked for us. The California line for the cable cars goes right by the front door, the Fairmont and its Tonga Room just across the square, and the Cathedral and park right in front of us. Chinatown just a short walk away, and North Beach a little further.
Only spent a brief time in the spa - no services, but jumped in the pool and jacuzzi; very relaxing. The staff and service seemed great; we were very well taken care of.
Perhaps not the place for everyone, but our experience was excellent.
Thank you Huntington!
