We spent the 4th of July weekend at the Huntington with our twin 10 year olds. Pulling up to the majestic Huntington with its beautiful architecture and majestic views made us feel downright regal. We got a corner suite with spectacular views. Like a fine wine, it's a bit pricey but worth it. The spa and pool were really nice... More

We stayed on the top floor and loved every minute. The place was bigger than our home back in sydney. Awesome views, we may even have snuck out onto the fire escape. Comfy beds, spacious accommodation, friendly staff, awesome location (although at the top of a hill.. work those thighs!) Close to quite a few useful amenities like CVS, car... More

We stayed at the Scarlet Huntington for five nights on our first trip to SF. The hotel is well situated at the top of Nob Hill opposite the Flood Mansion and the Huntington Park.

We booked this last minute and wow-what a treat. Arrived to learn that our stay included access to their wonderful (intimate) spa. Piano bar is nice for drinks, good ambiance. Hospitality at the front door was superb. We can't wait to get back. Beautiful experience!

The hotel and the rooms are really good, with a touch of luxury. Classic decoration. Wifi works fine. The location (at the top of Nob hill) is good but very few rooms offer a view and if you like to walk, be prepared to sweat when you walk back. We were there with a business group of 15 and the...

After reading all the reviews and checking their website - I had high expectations for the Scarlet Huntington. Yet they weren't quite met. I guess this is one of the grand old dames of hotels in SF, along with the Fairmont. Though in the Huntington's case the emphasis is probably on old and not so much grand. The hotel sits... More

We stayed at the Scarlet Huntington Hotel for two days, June 19-20, 2016. There is an old charm to the place. Don’t be scared off by the quirky furniture in the hotel lobby.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful 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 followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. The Scarlet Huntington builds upon the property's original charm, graciousness and exceptionally high standards while introducing locals and visitors to a unique and avant-garde style that is influenced by a vibrant Singapore Peranakan heritage woven together with the opulence of San Francisco. More than just a name, The Scarlet possesses a distinguished charm and charismatic aura, likened to a gracious hostess who indulges guests with a luxurious stay experience. Providing a warm ad familiar welcome, the iconic red of the former Huntington Hotel's exterior - as displayed in the brick facade and illuminated sign high atop the hotel - will permeate the new aesthetic, representing the hotel's heritage while embracing the passion and allure defined by The Scarlet; offering uninhibited luxury to every guest. ... more   less
