Great lounge with nice atmosphere, friendly service, perfect location on top of the hill. Walk down couple of blocks to the cable car museum and have a drink in the quirky cafe on the corner opposite of the museum entry.

This hotel was very nice with a great location near public transportation. The room I had was great- very clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the Transamerica Building and the bay. There was some noise from the trolleys, but this added to the overall charm of the experience. The concierge was extremely helpful in providing directions and helping...

For about $220 you can stay in Nob Hill. Close to everything in a very high end hotel. Great food, although pricey. Like staying across the street without the price. Hotel is very clean and staff very friendly. Has a nice SF theme to it as well.

My wife and I stayed here as part of seeing the Giants-Mets baseball game. We've stayed at a couple of hotels in the area (The Scarlet Huntington and The Intercontinental), so we were familiar with our surroundings. This was our first time staying at the Stanford Court. My wife was not thrilled when she found out we were staying there....

Loved the hotel and the location. Blocks away from Union Square without the noise! Friendly staff - no room service but nice bar. Needed parking for a larger vehicle and they were able to handle it. Great job!

We enjoyed our stay here very much after we changed rooms to the bay side. The hotel is well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful as expected. Just watch out for those parking fees if you are traveling by car :) But I assume this is everywhere the same for a hotel in that area.

Great hotel, service ,rooms and location for the start of our California Trip.

The location of this hotel is great, 5 min from union square, cable car in front of the hotel. We had a spacious corner-room with spectacular view, the bed was very comfortable with great pillows. Unfortunately it was not as clean as we expected, there was no wardrobe in the room, a clothes-rail "in" the bathroom was the only possibility...

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.
