This hotel is perfectly located for getting around San Francisco. It's at the cross roads of the Powell /Mason and California cable cars, which will get you to all parts of the city on the bay side. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were a little dated, but as we only slept there it's no big deal. Get... More

Stayed here four people for four nights in a family room. The beds were (queen size I believe) comfortable and wide enough for two people. The hotel has good service, helpful staff, and many nice little features like free morning coffee, free bicycles, lots of iMacs in the lobby and a good gym. Also good location, although the the two... More

Stayed here for five nights. Great location on top of Nob Hill. Very clean and safe feeling. Staff is very friendly especially housekeepers, valet, front desk, and bellman. Love the blue jeans, music in the elevator, modern lobby and business lounge.

We stayed at the Stanford Court for 4 nights in March, 2016. The location is amazing - it's at Powell and California, so both the north-south (Powell) and the east-west (California) lines of the cable cars run right outside the hotel. It's also close enough to walk down to Union Square (amazing shopping!!!) as well as to Grace Cathedral and... More

Thank you for your wonderful review of your recent stay. We certainly love being so centrally located within San Francisco. It is perfect for exploring San Francisco without a car. While parking is expensive in the city, the Stanford Court offers the lowest rate for valet of all other Nob Hill hotels. I am sorry that the view from your... More

We had a great time here..comfortable room, snuggly bed, clean bathroom. The hotel is in a fantastic location with Union Square only 4 blocks away, Chinatown is 15 mins walk, and two cable car lines running at the corner. The check in process was not as streamlined and planned as I would expect from a Nob hill hotel. They gave... More

From arrival to departure the hotel was superb in nearly every way. I especially liked the circular drive underground entry was. It provided ease, safety, out of the rain entrances and exits. Everything about the hotel made for a very pleasant stay in this magical city.

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.
