This is our second year staying at the Stanford Court. We love the modern vibe with great music born in San Francisco in the elevator and clever tech symbols throughout. The lobby bar and seating area is spacious and a nice place to visit with guests. The rooms are a bit quirky in layout but very comfortable. The neighborhood is...

The staff was very friendly and attentive. The lobby and common areas are fine. The interiors of the rooms look and feel a little dated to me, but are maintained well. I think they are due for a makeover, but beds and service is good. The hotel is the top of Powell street, it's a bit of a hike up...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in April and had a wonderful stay.

We recently stayed at The Stanford Court and although we didn't have a street view room we were more than satisfied with a partial view of California Street. Everything that was needed for our stay was provided even ear plugs (not needed). We didn't eat at the hotel but there was plenty of restaurants close by, some even recommended by...

Bottom line, yes I would stay here again and yes, I would recommend it to a friend. I think for the location and the good quality of this hotel, it was reasonably priced compared to its competition. (All downtown hotels are going to be a bit pricey, keep in mind...) PROS: 1. Great location at the top of Nob Hill....

Stanford Court is a beautiful hotel located a short cable car stop from Union Square. We arrived early so couldn't get into the room straight away but could 'pre' check-in.

We've stayed at the SC many times, but this is the last. No longer a 4-star experience. Great staff, but room, bed & bath were small, the air was stale, and the 1st floor view of the dirty alley unacceptable. And where is Fourno's Oven? Very disappointed.

If you can believe it, Stanford Court, in the home of the Golden State Warriors, does not carrier them on the TVs in the hotel rooms. Even during the playoffs. I have a hard time believing they would do this.

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.
