Our 5 night stay at The Scarlet Huntington was awesome! The staff was exceptional! The doorman was always there to greet you by name and with a smile. Whatever you needed they took care of it. There is a small park across the street if you have a pet or children. Walking distance to many sights the city has to...

This is an excellent location if you are looking to be central to Haight and Ashbury and the Wharf. The hotel had excellent service with very pleasant people to look after the car and the luggage. The room was a generous size and had nice finishes. Spa - beautiful. Unfortunately, the staff did not encourage a peaceful atmosphere so there...

We stayed in the Huntington for 5 nights in early September. We had an early flight and our driver dropped us at 10:00AM at the hotel.

We enjoyed a Thursday-Monday stay at The Huntington for our combined birthdays and anniversary celebration in late August. I really can't say enough good things about this hotel.

We stayed for several nights on our first visit to this city in June 2012 so negative things may have changed for the better.

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
