The staff at the Stanford makes your stay! The bell staff(particularly), front desk staff, and bar staff are courteous, helpful, and friendly. Unfortunately, the city was busy and the price very high.

Loved the hotel. Stayed for six nights and i'll be back. The atmosphere, location and people along with rooms were great. Nob hill is known for hills so be prepared to walk up a few hills as needed to go down. Definitely suggest this hotel!

The staff at this hotel are quite friendly and offer to help, but they are not equipped to deal with multiple issues/guests at once. Limited bar. Zero room service. Decent bar food, but limited knowledge of common mixed drinks. Good valet. Good location.

Thank you very much for your review. I appreciate you acknowledging the friendliness of our staff. We are quite adept at handling nearly everything that comes our way. What helps is to have details.

Beautiful hotel! Good location. I would recommend an uber though if you want to go somewhere because the hill it is located on is pretty steep! Shower head was a little low and trolley was a bit noisy but overall great experience. I would stay here again.

I have stayed here over five times in the last 7 years and was so disappointed with our recent stay. The location is amazing, but the dirty carpet, laissez faire service, tiny bathrooms and low ceilings have done me in. See you (hopefully) (redesigned) in the coming years, Stanford Court.

We do have casual, friendly service but it is certainly not aloof or laissez-faire. Our carpets are not dirty but they are worn.

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.
