Expected much more. Entrance was in a sunken motor court. Lobby resembled a Courtyard..... We upgraded to the "presidential suite" which was a room on a high floor with a nice bathroom. What does suite usually mean to you? Yes, me too. The shower was odd, the sink didn't drain, the jacuzzi didn't work, and the bathroom was very dim....

Thank you very much for your review. We're very sorry that you were placed into a suite that is not entirely in working order. The spa tub has an issue and parts are no longer available. We are very sorry this had such a profound issue on your overall stay. Our lobby is quite different from a Courtyard. We offer...

The Stanford Court is working to appeal to a younger age group with their signage that all includes a "#" before it. Anyone would be comfortable there and we found everything in perfect order. The rooms were very quiet and the bed so comfortable! We would stay again and would recommend it.

I have stayed here a few times and every time I come back I like the hotel that little bit more. Sat in the heart of the delightful Nob Hill area of San Francisco this hotel gives easy access to the heart of the city as well as an easy walk or cycle to Chinatown and Fishermans wharf. It's great...

The quality of the hotel is good but the room I was given was on the corner of California and Powell Streets and on level 1. The cable cars guaranteed no sleep for 3 full nights. Don't plan on staying here if sleep is important to you.

Had a very good stay and no complaints. I was attending a conference downtown and wish I had known what a steep trip it was to walk from downtown to the hotel. Of course there are many transportation options but if you like to walk be prepared for plenty of elevation gain in getting around

A hotel without room service or a real restaurant should not get a 4 star rating. BUT your staff is 5 star and that is why I stayed. I hope the renovation starts soon. AND the only rooms would be inner courtyard unless the windows become double paned.

The hotel had the friendliest staff I have ever come across. There is a bar and restaurant downstairs with excellent service and food, plenty of hanging out room in the lobby, with computers and such.

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.
