Nice and clean, but small by American standards, hotel rooms. But we mostly used the room for sleeping, so not a big deal. Parking is available, and there are taxis and public transportation available. One of the best things is that a cable car terminus...More

You've noticed the secret, that this stop on the California Cable Car has no line! That Muni pass is a fantastic idea. It pays for the buses, cables cars, and street cars. Pay once and use it as much as you like.

the maids are loud... All rooms are loud... The AC unit was humid and never reached below 70 degrees it also rattled all night ... Stay somewhere else... The beds aren't that comfortable ... Not impressed

Urban noise is certainly a factor in San Francisco. I also travel with ear plugs. You never know when the guests in the room next door or the sounds outside become unsettling. Thankfully, we are in the process of replacing all of our A/C units.

The security deposit is usually held on the credit card. However, another option is to use cash so that the refund is received immediately at check-out. Value is great, but the savings aren't enjoyable when all of the funds are tied up.

This hotel is in a good central location. The room was clean and bed was comfortable but I felt it quite expensive - although this is maybe what is to be expected in central San Francisco. Staff were very polite and helpful Facilities are good...More

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

This hotel is right on a Main Street with businesses and other hotels in surrounding area. It seemed fine in the day. I didn’t go out at night.

Yes. there are several van services from both OAK and SFO. Find the basic information by searching each airport's ground transportation options and then using the corresponding websites to make you choice and reserve.

The hotel front desk did allow us to leave our luggage near the front desk. They did not lock it up but it was sitting right in front of the check in desk.
