    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

    The hotel front desk did allow us to leave our luggage near the front desk. They did not lock it up but it was sitting right in front of the check in desk.
