“Great Location - Great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Perfect location in the Nob Hill area. We were able to walk down to the Bloomingdales shopping area, the main street in Chinatown, and over into the Italian area. We walked a lot and the hills are steep; but, the hotel location is very central. The hotel staff are very friendly and quick to make a good restaurant recommendation if asked. This is a very clean hotel in an upscale area. Our room was classified as a "jr suite" but it was just a larger sized room. The beds are very comfortable and you do not hear a lot of hallway or road noise for the hotel.
I would recommend staying here; it was perfect for our family of four.

We recently traveled to San Francisco for our son's wedding and stayed at the Stanford Court for the first time. We had a king size room that was nice sized, clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. The hotel was in a great location with shopping and good restaurants within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions and the lobby was a comfortable place to meet and visit with other family members. I would highly recommend the Stanford Court and will definitely be staying there in the future.

Love the location of this hotel as it is up the hill so not a lot of homeless around. Great neighbourhood. Very clean. Service friendly and efficient. Fast wi-fi. Walk down hill straight to Union Square.

The fact that is at the top of a hill is not a problem. Take a ride on the less busy California Line to go right past hotel. Hotel staff were helpful, polite and very friendly. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We were made to feel welcome and valued as customers. The UK has something to learn here. Explore around Nob Hill for good restaurants and you must visit Grace Cathedral.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near the lifts as you could have a long walk

The Stanford Court is a lower end 4 star that has a welcoming front entrance and friendly staff. The rooms are nice but quite small. The bathroom was very nice, however, the bedroom was a little tight. The sizable windows looked out to the skyline of the city. The hotel was a good value for the amenities and location. Our only negative experience was the sound of the rail cars going up and down the hill seemingly all night. It was very loud and annoying. Do not get a room on the side of the hotel with the rail.

Room Tip: Book a room not adjacent to the street with the rail unless you want to listen to the screeching and...

Thank you for your review. I’m happy to hear that you were pleased with your room and the views of the city. I apologize for the noise disturbances from the cable cars. I hope you found the complimentary earplugs helpful in muffling some of the street noise. Thank you for you for your feedback, I hope you will think of us on your next visit to San Francisco.

Other than being located a the top of a HUGE hill, this place was great. The rooms are big, clean & have great beds. The staff was helpful and gave you a real San Fran experience. The only watch out is if you're in a hurry to get your car from valet. It takes a while. Other than that, we'd definitely stay here again.

You cannot beat this location on Nob Hill. Rooms are a nice size and very clean. Lobby is modern and nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. It lacks room service and the food service they do have downstairs is minimal and not good. Do visit the Tongo Room in the Fairmont across the street.
