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.
"More than a museum; it's the beating heart that pulls all cable cars through the streets"
reviewed 1 week ago by mr_koopman
The visit was beyond my expectation. When you approach the museum by foot, you can hear and smell machinery through the open windows.
Enthusiastic I went inside and after climbing the stairs, there was a wide view down on the engines that spin the large wheels to pull the cables through the streets and hills of San Francisco. The museum...
My favorite church in San Francisco. It's a beautiful place to de-compress and contemplate life among the stained glass windows and soaring ceiling. Don't miss the Ghiberti gilded bronze doors cast from the originals in Florence, Italy.
This compact park across the way from Grace Cathedral is one of Nob Hill's treasures. It certainly packs a lot into a city block. Intensely green turf, paved walkways, places to sit, a fountain, artsy statuary,even a playground for the kids. I hate that our guide had to hustle us through the park during a gentle rain. I'd like to...
Staff were friendly, service was great, and food was out in minutes. Absolutely delicious. Compared to burritos we get in Australia and the few others we have had here in the states, this was easily the best.
"A favorite Northern Italian restaurant with delicious house-made pasta dishes"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by Tony K
One of my favorite Italian restaurants in the City, Ristorante Milano serves authentic northern Italian food using fresh, local ingredients. It has a very small dining room, attentive staff, and delicious food. I love their house-made pasta dishes, of which my favorite is their Linguine ai Frutti di Mare.
It's a small restaurant, but big in flavorful dishes for breakfast. Get there early, or you will have to wait in line. I had the shrimp and grits, my husband had the zuchinni pancakes. Both dishes were my my good.
Central location, next to cable car route. Is on a hill though so walking can be a little bit of an effort. Spacious room, friendly staff. Has USB ports by beside. Bath/shower, quiet rooms. Only has chiller rather than fridge in room but is available on request.
My dad (73) and his wife really enjoyed the hotel and its restaurant. From him: Really comfortable room, great view, very clean. Staff very nice, James (valet) and Glenn (bell) were really fun guys to talk with. Big 4 ambiance special old world richness; food was high level also. Walking access to everything around Nob Hill. Pretty damn nice.
When I come to San Francisco for my professional meetings, we come to this hotel, it is an old hotel with very good waves, the service is impeccable, fast and neat, beautiful and large room with all the necessary comfort, now we are starting to get to know the staff well, who give us a great welcome every time, the...
i stayed 1 night. checkin was seemless. service was nice .room was clean, carpet is a bit dated. room on 7th floor , i heard cars from street. so most sf hotels are like this. check out was good. valet was a bit slow even though we called 15mins before hand at 6am on sunday. location is on top of...
We had a very pleasant stay at Castle Inn
Very helpful and friendly staff. they guided us through the map of SF and pointed out where to go and Where not to go
Beds where good
Breakfast a bit on the poor side when with two kids
Overall a place to recommend
