Beautiful hotel. Very clean. Friendly staff. Close to cable cars, convenience stores, restaurants & shopping. You can walk to most places. Very centralized location. Highly recommend. Will stay there again if we ever return to San Francisco.

Cancelled our reservations at the Fairmont Hotel, based on friend's recommendations. We are so glad we did! Hotel is customer friendly, with above board customer service. Beautiful views of the bay, lovely accommodations, very clean and comfortable rooms. Would stay here again!

This place is great. Located right across the street from the Fairmont Hotel, at the Muni crossing of California and Powell street, walking distance to Fishermans Wharf as well as the shopping areas. Very friendly staff. Free coffee and juice in the morning. Modern room set-up. Large TV. Free WiFi.

Average hotels don't have your room ready at 17:00 in the afternoon and have no other room available. In a hotel this size? Not even if they have to stomach an upgrade? So out for dinner without being able to freshen up. Average hotels are where you wake up at 4 a.m. due to a knocking noise next door every... More

Comfiest bed we stayed in after 5 hotels through the 3 weeks. Good view of Transamerica building. Cable car noise did not effect my sleep- I enjoyed hearing them In the morning.

I was a little concerned with this hotel after reading the Trip Advisor reviews but was relieved to actually experience their hospitality. We stayed on the third floor facing the trolley line and did experience the noise ( some it we loved but some of it was very loud) but we made use of the ear plugs. Thankfully the trolley... 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.
