We stayed here for 4 nights in June as part of a 3 week tour. As I knew the city from previous visits I knew what areas to stay and the Scarlet fitted this and seemed good value when booking. We turned up and the valet and BellMan were v helpful as were all the other staff we came across....

We stayed here for three nights over Labor Day weekend. Booked through the Amex Fine Hotels Program where the third night was included. Deal came with breakfast each morning as well as a one-way transfer back to SFO. We got upgraded to a 1 BR Suite, which was huge and nice. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom big...

We just returned form a 5-night stay. The rooms were large and comfortable, the staff was pleasant and helpful and the location is great as long as you don't mind being on a very steep hill. Note that the rooms vary--for example, one room had a tub but no safe, one had both, one had only a shower. My family...

The Scarlet Huntington is a beautiful hotel. The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. Winston, one of the front desk clerks, is particularly helpful. He went above and beyond to make my stay nice. I highly recommend this hotel.

Good hotel, with reasonably spacious rooms. The bordello look to the rooms make it interesting. Reasonably priced for the area. It is located at the top of Nob hill, which is where all the other high-end hotels area. In fact, the whole area is quite posh... Very old-school and cute actually. The rooms are reasonably sized and comfortable. In room...

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.

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
