Very pleased

Located right in the town so taking a trolley or bus will get you anywhere. Staff were very very nice and the room was clean. No issues no worries. This is an old fashioned hotel but it's very cute and nice.

quirky little nook in the heart of san francisco

Hotel was quirky, fun...perfect for what I needed. Comfortable and clean although smaller than I expected. The place has lots of charm and character while still providing all the necessities. Convenient to a downtown wedding I attended and walking distance to ... everywhere!

Great weekend getaway for a young couple

We absolutely loved staying at the Nob Hill Hotel. The huge jacuzzi tub in our room was a surprise and so nice to enjoy. We enjoyed the continental breakfast, even though it ended at the early hour of 9. The free wine and cheese from 5 to 7 was also enjoyable. These extra amenities really made our stay special!

For me ... perfect.

This was my 2nd stay ... it was as lovely as the 1st. This hotel is a little-known gem. I come to S.F. 2-3 times a year and have stayed in many hotels (a few considerably more expensive)and the Nob Hill, is by far, my best experience. The location is fabulous (esp. if you like to walk) as is the staff. The rooms combine elegance w/modern necessity and a high standard of cleanliness. On my next trip, the Nob Hill will be my FIRST HOTEL CHOICE.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

One block up and several over (to your right) take you to Powell and a Cable Car that will take you down to Market. From Market the F trolly will take you to the Wharf (BTW - there's much more to see than just Pier 39). However, I've walked this route (I'm 58) and enjoy it a lot. If you skip the Cable car for a moment and walk past Powell a few more blocks you'll come to China Town (look for the Gates). From there, you walk down and, again, you hit Market and can get transportation to anywhere in the City. I suggest getting the Cable car UP Powell from Market to the top of Nob. The views and architecture are among the best in the City and, that way you can walk DOWN to the hotel.

conference in san francisco

the staff members were very helpful and kind. if i needed directions, or a cab, or had any question about the hotel or the area at all, they did their utmost to assist me. the hotel is very pretty, and the restaurant there has mighty tasty food. I was very happy with my stay and with the price of the hotel - I still remember it fondly, and it's been a year since I was there.
