Hard to judge this place - the room was large with a nice view on the park. Bed was comfortable. Hot water shower. Fine. The design was awkward: beautiful 1930s building with ridiculous '90s furniture. Dont know if they are trying something original or if its just bad taste. Breakfast was expensive for what it is. Finally: had a relatively...

My wife booked this hotel for the first 2 nights of our honeymoon in San Francisco and we couldn't have been happier. From the moment we first walked in we were treated with kindness and extreme politeness from the entire staff.  The lobby is beautiful and we were upgraded to a top floor room with an incredible view of the...

We chose The Scarlet Huntington for our post-wedding nights, since who wants to stay in their apartment after they get hitched? WORST decision of our wedding. Let me start off with the positives: Pros -- The bellmen at the front are so nice, personable, and make you feel welcome -- Location is charming, though on top of a hill and...

This is a very classy hotel, strikingly different from the major chains. It's a throwback to the times when you were made to feel special because of the attention and interest the staff paid to you.

This is a very nice hotel that was close to everything. Our suite was huge, and everything was clean and comfortable. The view from our room was awesome. The service was excellent with fast check in, quick room service and helpful concierge. I would stay here again.

The Scarlet Huntington is an elegant professionally operated hotel at the centre of Nob Hill. San Francisco is in every direction. Bar 4 is everything you'd want a classy bar to be.

The Scarlet Huntington is "classic" luxury hotel, marketed as "boutique," which is to say it provides a lot of the service that newer five star hotels provide, but the property itself is older and does not have the open architecture/modern feeling as newer properties. Some pros for this hotel: a nice/large room; spa area (very busy while I was there,...

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
