The Scarlet Huntington is a gem! It's in a great location right in Nob Hill. They upgraded my room and it was huge. It was updated and the bathroom was large as well. It was very clean and the staff was amazing! They were so helpful and friendly. I will definitely stay there again!

We just returned from our three night stay at the Scarlet Huntington. It was truly wonderful! The location was perfect for walking to and from restaurants, and was close to Chinatown and reasonably close to the wharf. I loved hearing the church bells from Grace Cathedral on the hour, and frankly it was nice to be somewhat removed from the...

We opted for this hotel rather than the Marriott, based on our TripAdvisor colleagues. Great choice! We were offered an upgrade to a suite, which we accepted and included free WiFi. The decor is comfortable, the big bed with down pillows very sleepworthy, the bathroom spic and span, and room attendants very professional and the view from our room outstanding....

my entire experience start to finish with this hotel was negative. i called several times to have receptionists fail to answer questions and fish off the phone. the hotel is NOT child friendly.

Very nice hotel with excellent staff that could not have been more helpful, from the doorman through to the concierge. Our room was very spacious. The hotel exudes past quality which is charming, however the decor in general is a little faded. The bar and restaurant area is atmospheric and secluded, perfect for a romantic meal. The hotel is well...

Second place staying and I love it. Understated and charming, lovely simple yet luxuriously furnished room (thank you for giving me the same lovely room as last time). I've been coming SF at least twice a year for the past 7 years and at last I've found the right place. Location-wise there's not a lot of shops, restaurants and bars...

What a lovely find! Had a last minute trip to SF and used Hotel Tonight for booking. I arrived before normal check in time, and was offered an upgrade for an additional $20. 100% worth it! I was on the (top) 12th floor, and had a beautiful view of Grace Cathedral, Huntington Park and the Bay. My room was enormous!...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. The Scarlet Huntington builds upon the property's original charm, graciousness and exceptionally high standards while introducing locals and visitors to a unique and avant-garde style that is influenced by a vibrant Singapore Peranakan heritage woven together with the opulence of San Francisco. More than just a name, The Scarlet possesses a distinguished charm and charismatic aura, likened to a gracious hostess who indulges guests with a luxurious stay experience. Providing a warm ad familiar welcome, the iconic red of the former Huntington Hotel's exterior - as displayed in the brick facade and illuminated sign high atop the hotel - will permeate the new aesthetic, representing the hotel's heritage while embracing the passion and allure defined by The Scarlet; offering uninhibited luxury to every guest. ... more   less
