Great location, nice boutique hotel. Comfortable room and bed reasonably priced for location. Close to China Town quick walk to warf cable cars in close proximity. Very attentive staff. Close to union square shopping area. No complaints. No room service which is of no consequence to me small plates available in bar. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at Stanford Court for a week to explore SF. This hotel is conveniently located to anyplace in the city because it is a cable car ride away from Union Square where you can get all sources of public transportation. Every associate of the hotel was polite, professional, and friendly. Special thank you to Steve for making our check... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights, the hotel is in a great location in Nob Hill area and directly opposite the Fairmont hotel. The room we were given was very small and the shower was very disappointing. The breakfast was not included in our hotel price and it was priced at $25pp for the full breakfast -... More

We stayed at the Stanford Court while we were in San Francisco with our almost 2 year old. This place was expensive, no doubt about it... but it was a very clean, updated, beautiful and comfortable place! All our pictures were taken after we were in the room so be assured that it was in pristine condition when we walked... More

First time staying here, and will certainly do so again. Central location on Nob Hill at a reasonable price. Their theme of famous Bay Area bands is too cool! The elevator music was awesome--hearing Santana and others made me want to stay on.

Booked for a steal using Expedia points when we decided we were too tired to drive home. The room was nice and had a feather mattress topper. The only drawbacks were valet parking only @ $52/night plus 14% tax and we could hear the lobby music through our closed windows on the second floor all night long.

Great hotel with a boutique feel. Located in central location. Restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. But if you want avoid the hills the trolley is just outside for your convenience. Pier 39 just 25 minutes, North Beach just 20 minutes, Nob Hill restaurants abound, and Union Square and their shops just 10 minutes downhill.

Excellent hotel - classic. charming and cool. A lot of thought has gone into the experience (magazines available via WIFI, art, heated towel rack in room). Hotel lobby is very attractive -- a number of guests spent considerable time there. I personally did not want to leave the hotel. Very helpful front desk team members. Steep incline to get to...

This is a great place to stay. Loved the location and the hotel. You can walk almost anywhere if you are joys with going up and down hills. Room was much bigger than other similarly priced hotels. I will stay here again.

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.
