The Scarlet Huntington and Nob Hill Spa offers a welcoming atmosphere in the midst of San Francisco's upscale Nob Hill neighborhood. Originally constructed in 1924 as a high-end apartment building, the family owned and operated property houses 136 contemporary-style guestrooms and suites. The 11,000-square-foot (1,021 square meters) Nob Hill Spa features an indoor infinity-edge pool with floor-to-ceiling windows offering far-reaching views of downtown San Francisco, a fireside lounge, and steam and sauna rooms. The spa's extensive services reflect the four founding cultures of San Francisco - Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Victorian - and include a variety of holistic and Ayurvedic treatments, as well as beauty and relaxation treatments influenced by diverse healing traditions. Signature offerings include the Nob Hill Spa Ultimate Massage and the Nob Hill Spa Ultimate Facial. Contemporary American spa cuisine is available poolside form the award-winning Big 4 restaurant. The city's famous cable cars stop just outside the hotel entrance to transport guests throughout the area. In addition, complimentary chauffeur service is also available for guests whose itinerary includes the financial district or the well-known Union Square shopping district. The hotel is also in close proximity to some of the city's well-known landmarks such as the Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, and the Embarcadero.

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
