This is the best kept secret for hotels in San Francisco. The staff is great, the rooms are great, the restaurant and bar are great. But what makes this place special is the attention to detail overall.

The Scarlet Huntington may be one of the best kept secrets in San Francisco. The Scarlet hotel is one of the 3 terrific properties built by the "Big 4" during the western railroad expansion days early in California's history. While the Fairmont and the Mark Hopkins are probably the two best known properties on Nob Hill, the Scarlet Huntington is...

We stayed here for a few nights on our honeymoon. The room was super, with lovely L'occitane toiletries. It is at the top of a very steep hill (well, it is SF after-all!), so don't make the mistake we did and drag heavy suitcases from the tube stop at the bottom of the hill - jump on a tram instead!...

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
