    I'm happy you enjoyed your stay with us during your first trip to San Francisco! We have a couple of bus lines that stop 2 blocks away and the California Cable Car line right on our corner.

    Average three star hotel. Ok for two nights. Ok location. Ok staff. Plenty of tourists, probably because of the location and because they have so many rooms in the building. Breakfast was regular and internet free. At the end, no issues with this hotel.

    Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the

    The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
    those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be

    Yes there are several rental locations in about a mIle radius. I rented from enterprise and they came and picked me up and dropped me off. I could have walked, however it would have been about a mile each way.
