Great location on Nob Hill. Friendly staff. Our room was clean and had been refurbished recently but was nothing special. The hotel has seen better days and is starting to show it's age. All in all staying there was a great value.

We generally stay in the vicinity of No hIll but had not previously stayed at the Stanford Court. We found it to be very comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. The value was very good and we will return.

Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff. Seems to be also famous for airlines crews. Pretty centrally located, with walking distance to Market Street (10 min), Fisherman's Wharf, very close to Chinatown. However, be aware that it is at the top of the hill, so that walking back to the hotel is always an up-hill walk (or use the tram)!...

Loved this hotel. Very clean and in a great location. Comfortable bed and a big room. Friendly staff for the check in. Did not get a chance to go to the bar or eat. Affordable rates for the location and everything you get.

Had a meeting at the (5 Star) The Fairmont hotel across the street from the (4 Star) Stanford Court. Saved $90 a night and it is directly across the street. Still expensive but it was absolutely fine!!! I would stay there again. Also it is right at the cable car stop.

Loved the lobby/dining area. It's warm, inviting and very comfortable. I enjoyed working down there then relaxing after a long day of meetings with a book. My room itself was very spacious, and the view was great but the heat/AC didn't have an "auto" setting meaning you had to have one or the other on. Given the weather and the...

Beautiful hotel. Very functional. Made my vacation the very best. I felt like it was my home when I stayed there. So very comfortable. The wine cellar selection is superb and the restaurant exceptional. Next time I am in SF, this is where I will be.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times before and have typically had a good experience. This time, however, was with a wedding party and one guest got out of line. Bartender proceeded to cut off the entire group. His comment was "you should have controlled your friend". My response was " I don't really even know this individual"...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Stanford Court. We understand the frustrations guests can have when they are refused service at the bar. We act swiftly when our staff or other guests are treated inappropriately and while that certainly can lead to a negative review, we know that our approach is the correct one. We...

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.
