Handy location for San Francisco generally--a cable car line immediately adjoining to the north, interesting small restaurants just around the corner, reasonably priced for San Francisco and pleasant rooms that have been recently updated/remodeled.

Nothing against the Civic Center location, but I couldn't agree more! I'm so glad that you recognize the huge improvement in our restaurant. It's been an amazing transformation! Thank you.

The hotel was recently nicely renovated so the room was really fresh and with modern interior decoration. Unfortunately, the hotel was fully booked and we got a room beside the elevators. I wish the renovation had included better insulation. Staff was friendly and the room...More

Thankfully, prices are a bit lower here than in the Financial District, Union Square, and Fisherman's Wharf. We like our location centrally located between all of those great areas. Thank you for choosing us.

I was traveling on business so I was limited on my hotel selection. The hotel itself was nice - newly renovated from what I heard. My room was a good size - but according to the woman at check-in it was a "smaller room" -...More

Housekeeping will be over the moon to hear to hear that you can't find a cleaner room. Thank you for that. The great part about the restaurants in the area, they're basically supported by local residents. That means the bad ones don't last too long.

Thanks for the great description of the new fitness room. We're quite excited about the change. Mr. Tam will certainly hear about your appreciation. Thank you.

The Housekeeping staff will certainly hear about their great efforts. I admit that I am unable to think what parts of the hotel have not been recently renovated, but waiting for an elevator can certainly be frustrating. Thank you for visiting.

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
