“A class hotel in the midst of great hotels”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

The Stanford Court is a classic hotel that exudes class and style. As a platinum elite Marriott member we decided that our 5 day stay in this great hotel was a must. We were not disappointed.

We were given an excellent room with a wonderful view of both the city buildings, and the San Francisco Bay. Who could ask for anything more. All of our requirements were there on check-in, and the room was fresh and super clean. From a location point of view you cannot do any better in the downtown area.

We had breakfast every morning in the hotel restaurant, and with the watchful and superb service by Ramon we enjoyed well cooked and executed dishes. I also commend the very exacting and efficient housekeeping staff, Anna in the concierge lounge, and Ann Merek, the Director of Operations, who ensured that our stay was ultimately a superb one.

Because of the fact that the Stratford is located on the corner of Powell and California one hears the cable cars, with bells and all, until 1AM in the morning. It did disturb some of our sleep, and might affect others similarly. Just thought I'd mention that for those who are very noise conscious.

If we travel through San Francisco again this will be our hotel home away from home.

Room Tip: Try and get the bay view rooms despite the fact they could be a bit noisier.

the hotel has a great location on nob hill, conveniently located at the intersection of two cable car lines, and is just a few blocks from union square. we had an interior-courtyard view room, and it was very quiet and relaxing. the beds were amazing, the size of the room was great. the rooms, while recently updated, still could have used a polishing up, in order to be just that much better than they actually were. the overall room decor was a bit dated for my tastes, and i would have liked a more modern / updated bathroom (the tub, shower and plumbing were definitely a few decades old). however, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay at this hotel again. the service was very friendly and the breakfasts were great. note: parking at this hotel is very pricey, but that is a given for parking in the city.

We were delighted by the welcome we received and the helpfulness of the staff. We were shown 3 rooms - all light and clean and a good size for the location. Excellent value for money particularly for the location - virtually opposite The Fairmont and half the price.

Stayed here on a recent trip to San Francisco with my daughter. The staff was accommodating, the bedding lush and the room meticulously clean. Would absolutely recommend this hotel and will stay there again when I visit the city.

We chose this Hotel because of the location near Nob Hill and the Cable Cars. The Hotel has a european feel - you drive into an off-street court yard to the front entry. We enjoyed the Hotel Restaurant that had an excellent menu. The service from our waiter was very good and he recommended a lovely wine. We are looking forward to going back for another romantic getaway.

We stayed at the Renaissance Stanford Court in October 2011 for a five-night getaway. The location is outstanding - on Nob Hill right at the intersection of two cable car lines, a short walk to Chinatown. The staff all went out of their way to be helpful. We had a beautiful room with a view of the bay and Alcatraz. The furnishings and linens are high-end. If you have access to the concierge lounge, it provides amazing views, as well as a quality breakfast buffet.

Initially we were allocated a horrible room with a view on a wall .. we complained and immediately got another one online with our booking.
Hotel is ideally located on top on nob hill.
Would definitely recommend the place as a hotel but also the lobby/bar for an afternoon tea..
(Parking is somewhat pricey )
