This is a great place to stay in terms of excellent service and great bar, go early, it's crowded, good food and great location. Near a park and cathedral on top of Knob hill. We were there for 3 days and very much enjoyed the facility.

Booked this for our wedding trip, got married in SF. What an amazing hotel. The photos on their website don't do it justice. The entrance lobby is stunning, even more so as it was decorated for the holidays with a big colorful Christmas Tree taking centre stage. The bell staff take care of all your luggage on arrival and transfer...

I have stayed at The Huntington Hotel many times in the last 12 years. The rooms are large compared to most hotels and the suites had modified kitchens in them. Although my late husband knew the staff at The Huntington and we always enjoyed The Big Four restaurant, for whatever reason we started staying at The Ritz Carlton down the...

We stayed at this Nob Hill hotel at Christmas time and really enjoyed being in a different part of town for the holidays. The neighborhood lights and decorations were so festive!

Hard to judge this place - the room was large with a nice view on the park. Bed was comfortable. Hot water shower. Fine. The design was awkward: beautiful 1930s building with ridiculous '90s furniture. Dont know if they are trying something original or if its just bad taste. Breakfast was expensive for what it is. Finally: had a relatively...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. 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
