We enjoyed a very comfortable night in a well appointed room at the university club and had a great dinner with friendly service. The oysters accompanied with champagne were great as was the salmon with a good but very reasonably priced pinot noir

We stayed here several times. It is located in Nob Hill across from the Fairmont. The rooms are nice but do not expect much of concierge service. The breakfast is very basic and ends at 9.30. The front desk is the only person taking care of everything from the guest services to laying out and refilling the breakfast.

Color me skeptical...opinionated. The Club is a Superlative location on Nob Hill. Check in at 4 pm and all four parking places were taken at 4:10 pm. Really? What does one do with their car? Fairmont Hotel parking available for $60.00 Really? Creaky floors, paper thin walls, and time travel (dated) rooms. Thin towels. Rock hard pillows. Lovely bar- old...

This building was built as a gentlemens' club over 100 years ago, and has amazing rooms and décor, wood panelling and ornate ceilings in abundance The lodging rooms are sometimes available for non-members The room I had needed redecorating really, and a window would not close.

A very interesting place to stay in SF. We found our room modest and comfortable. Our bed was the highlight, we both slept well! The breakfast was ample and the coffee was great with awesome views of the city. This was really a no frills sort of place but the building itself is incredibly charming in a great location. For...

If you've ever wanted to step back in time and stay at a 1930's era hotel, this is the place for you. The Club is an old money, old style, bare bones and very unique spot. I took a room for several nights and felt I'd moved into a Bogart movie. Creaky stairs; wooden paneling; dark oil paintings; sparsely furnished...

What a treasure. The locale, the staff, the amazing rooms! If you are lucky enough to stay here, enjoy the superb views from the 4th floor balcony. Such a great experience! One cool tidbit is that there is a cable car stop right outside the front door. Love San Francisco!

Nice location on Nob Hill but except for helpful evening receptionist Derrick (?) & a good diner that's the positives.
