I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights last week. I stayed in a room with
2 queen beds. The room was really roomy with plenty of light.

The location is great at the top of Nob Hill (California and Powell).
The intersection of 3 cable car lines it takes you to Fishermans Wharf
in 15 mins or union Square in 4 mins. Walkable down to Union St but would recommend getting car back up. The third cable line takes you to
China Town.

The hotel is very nice indeed with a nice courtyard. The door staff/
bell persons are super friendly and courteous. Free complimentary town car in the mornings to the financial district. use of the car for
the same price as a cab if availble.

The reception staff and concierge are helpful and make the hotel. Even
the gift shop staff are lovely.

i would recommend this hotel for a good base to see San Francisco.

The Stanford Court is a beautiful hotel at the top of Nob Hill. Our room was very nice and the beds are wonderful!! They provide turn down
service, robes and heated towel racks. One thing that they also have is air conditioning. When we return to San Francisco this will be our hotel of choice. I would only change one thing and that would be a more reasonable priced breakfast.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel the last weekend of October 07. The room was clean, comfortable and the service was excellent. I didn't care for the bathrooms as I felt they were dated and I expected to have it a garden tub.

We stayed in room 335 which had a partial bay view and an excellent view of the city. The hotel is in a great location which is central to lots of attractions and also in a beautiful neighborhood.

The parking is overpiced at $41 a day but in SF I guess that's to be expected. We ordered room service twice and our orders were promptly delivered.

I got the hotel for $107 night on Priceline so I really can't complain at all although if I had paid full price I would've been dissapointed. Although the hotel was nice the decor and bathrooms seemed a little dated. I would never pay full price of $300+ a night to stay here as there are many better choices for that price range but if you can get a deal it's definitely worth it!

  • Liked — I got a great deal on priceline
  • Disliked — the bathrooms were dated and the TVs were small and dated. I expected flat screen TVs for a hotel in the 4 star range.

My wife and I stayed at the Stanford Court with two other couples for three nights prior to a week's visit to the wine country in northern California. On balance, although the hotel does have some positive features, our collective opinion was that the negatives outweighed the positives.

On the positive side: great location on Nob Hill just a half block from the intersection of three cable car lines. The staff is friendly, professional and helpful. The public areas and Fournou's Oven (the restaurant) are attractive and comfortable.The guest rooms were quiet during our stay,although the hotel appeared to be full.

But the negatives: all three of our rooms were TINY with no views whatsoever. My wife and I were using Marriott rewards points for our stay, but the other two couples were paying regular non-discounted rates, yet all three of us commented on these being perhaps the smallest hotel rooms we have stayed in in many years.

The entrance to the hotel is not on the street, but set back in an attractive courtyard. Traffic was frequently congested in the courtyard and there were sometimes long waits for taxis although there were numerous free taxis passing by on the street outside of the courtyard.

TV reception was barely adequate on old TV sets in our rooms. There is no free internet connectivity, although there is an option to purchase a "high speed" (not really) connection through the iBahn system in the room for $9.95 per day.

Like all Marriott properties, this is a totally non-smoking facility. One may view this as either a plus or a minus, but smokers are relegated to a dark corner of the courtyard where a few ashtrays and seats are provided.

On balance, especially because of the tiny rooms, we would not stay here again on our future visits to the San Francisco area.

We stayed at the Stanford court Oct 9-12 2007. This hotel is in an excellent location in San Francisco, two cable car lines stop right next to the hotel. Our king room was on the seventh floor with a view of the courtyard, which made the room nice and quiet.
The king bed was very good and the bed linens were too die for. Great wake up service with a pot of coffee every morning if you ask for it. Nice size room with a table and two chairs, a desk with a chair. Nice size bath with alot of extra space for your stuff.
Only three things I didn't like, the TV was on the side of the bed not at the foot, and if you wanted ice you needed to go down to the first floor for it. Also parking was $ 40.00 a night. Great stay would stay here again.

Spent 4 nights just recently at the Stanford Court and loved it...it is old-fashioned, charming, kind of European Old World. The staff was very nice, breakfast excellent ( a little pricey), quiet room and best of all, a view of the bay. Definitely worth the slight extra charge for the view. Poor tv reception on an old fashioned TV. Very low tech hotel which leads to the major issue: the $9.95 charge for the internet connection in the room seems ridiculous (especially for Marriott Reward Silver level member) and there is NO wireless in the room. This means that only one person can be online at a time. If you go to the lobby to use the wireless there, there is another very steep charge, even though you are already paying the $9.95 daily charge in your room.

Travellers should be aware of this if internet access is important to them.
