This is a gorgeous hotel in a beautiful part of the city. The rooms are very spacious and bright. Everything is brand new and the staff was fabulous. We love the restaurant downstairs too. Great cocktails and fresh food.

Love the Huntington. Have stayed at this landmark on Nobb Hill three or four times over the years and every visit has been excellent. Staff are always helpful. The renovations have added interesting details to many of the rooms. The hotel also features an excellent spa. The Huntington is a hit.

Beautiful hotel! Very nice to look at inside and outside. Rooms are very spacious and well equipped. We had a view of the park and cathedral from the 8th floor very nice indeed. All the staff are pleasant and helpful. Jason the doorman especially recommended a small Italian restaurant to me and my wife it was amazing. Thank you Jason.... More

The Huntington Hotel (now the Scarlet Huntington) is one of San Francisco's classic hotels, and based on our two-night stay, there's no question it deserves its superb reputation. Smaller and more subdued than either the Fairmont or Mark Hopkins (two of the other Nob Hill grand dames), the Huntington offers excellent service, beautiful rooms, a great bar, and a heavy... More

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
