We stayed at this hotel for two nights after a stay in Napa Valley. It's located within walking distance to almost everything. The staff was exceptional. We were immediately upgraded to a suite upon check in without even requesting an upgrade. Our room was very spacious and the view of Grace Cathedral was beautiful. The price was also very reasonable... More

Service was outstanding-doormen/bellhops were fantastic! The room overlooked the park, was bigger than expected for a city hotel, and very very clean. The bed was comfortable and we didn't hear the traffic noise below.

Rooms were surprisingly spacious for a big city downtown hotel.

We have just stayed at The Huntingdon. Great location (yes, you need to walk up a steep hill to get here). Trendy lobby, great bar and restaurant at night although it's odd having breakfast in the dark as there is no natural light. We were upgraded to a large suite which was great. Service is decent, not spectacular. The concierge... More

The rumors were rampant as to what would reappear when the Big Four and the hotel reopened Candidly, it is an interesting juxtaposition between the two.

Enjoyed our stay at Scarlet Huntington. The bar is the place to be for pre- dinner drinks. Worthwhile spending a few leisure hours in the bar!

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent location and great curb appeal of this hotel.

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
