Beautiful hotel! Good location. I would recommend an uber though if you want to go somewhere because the hill it is located on is pretty steep! Shower head was a little low and trolley was a bit noisy but overall great experience. I would stay here again.

Try the Cheesecake Factory then walk off the calories up the hill .The hotel felt very upmarket and safe , offering internet access . The staff we're polite and helpful . Would definitely recommend this hotel .

I have stayed here over five times in the last 7 years and was so disappointed with our recent stay. The location is amazing, but the dirty carpet, laissez faire service, tiny bathrooms and low ceilings have done me in. See you (hopefully) (redesigned) in the coming years, Stanford Court.

Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate your loyalty over the years and are happy you chose us again for your recent trip. We do have casual, friendly service but it is certainly not aloof or laissez-faire. Our carpets are not dirty but they are worn. We have them professionally cleaned six times per year which is far...

The Stanford Court was a very nice hotel in the Nob Hill area of San Francisco. I found it conveniently located where you can hop directly on the trolley to other parts of city. I had a 2 night stay at hotel. The check-in process was decent and took only a few minutes upon arrival. The concierge desk near checkin...

Great hotel property with great staff and location. Lunch options at the hotel are non-existent but breakfast is fantastic. Bar area is good for mingling with other guests and is open and welcoming. My room was quiet and did not have a view of the bay, but I was Ok with that.

Service excellent. Room extremely comfortable. Wished there was more choices for Breakfast, buffet or continental doesn't cut it when you can get made to order breakfast in Embassy suites. Did like coffee and juice service in morning.

overall good quality hotel. just needs to improve the options of food and drink on the bar/ restaurant. the bar is too focused just on alcoholic drinks and there is no place like a cafeteria . the room is comfortable. the price is quite high compared to other cities in the us.

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.
