Scored a fantastic rate on Hotwire, then upgraded for a nominal fee at the front desk. The staff let us choose from among two rooms; we chose the view.
Our room was spacious, comfortably furnished, with a nicely-laid out bathroom. Mattress and linens were first rate. Hallways and many rooms may show some age, but steady renovation will polish out these few flaws. And the important things -- bed, linens and bath -- are equal to any.
Staff was friendly, professional and helpful. Fantastic location, close to but literally uphill from everything. The doorman suggested we buy day tickets for the transit system which enabled us to ascend and descend Nob Hill by cable car [which stops just outside the hotel] and take advantage of other public transport.
Not my first stay. Most likely not my last.

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
