Historic Nob Hill hotel blends old and new with top-notch steakhouse

The past is new again at this circa-1926 hotel atop Nob Hill. Originally built as a bank, the property features classic stonework, stained glass and decorative touches. The lobby is adorned with Italian marble, rich fabrics and Austrian crystal chandeliers. Guestrooms mirror this classic elegance. The hotel is within walking distance of the city's storied cable cars. Bob's Steak & Chop House, the on-site restaurant, has established itself as one of the best steakhouses in the entire city. The property also offers complimentary guided walking tours once a week.

Highlights
  • Florentine Renaissance architecture
  • Walking distance to the Financial District, Union Square and North Beach
  • Succulent steak at Bob's Steak & Chop House
  • Complimentary guided walking tours
Rooms

Accommodations (362 rooms, including 20 suites) feature high ceilings and crown molding -- common design elements from the 1920s. Rooms also come standard with flat-screen televisions, plush down comforters, marble bathrooms and robes. Special GetFit guest rooms also feature treadmills and other exercise equipment. One of the suites, the Kid Fantasy Suite, includes a room of bunk beds, bean-bag chairs and games. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply). Pets welcome (fees apply).

Features

The hotel has received numerous awards, including the AAA Four Diamond Award.

Technically, the property has existed since 1926, though it served as a bank until the 1980s. To put this history into context for guests, third-party guides lead complimentary walking tours around the property and surrounding neighborhoods. The hotel also provides family-specific walking tours, geared toward visitors with young kids.

All guests receive complimentary access to a huge fitness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment. The hotel also provides shuttle service to Harding Park and Presidio Golf Course, the two closest greens (fees apply).

Enjoy a meal at Bob's Steak & Chop House, which specializes in corn-fed Midwestern prime beef but offers a variety of fish and vegetarian selections as well.

Valet and self parking are available (fees apply). There is free newspaper in the lobby.

Excellent Employees

From the moment we stepped out of our car and were greeted by the doorman and then on to the front desk, to the housekeeper and restaurant employees everyone was so helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. There are remodeled upgraded rooms on the upper floors which are very nice. Very clean. The lobby was decorated for Christmas, it was beautiful. Yes, I would stay there again. Easy access to everything. We had a great time.

Take Taxis. Remember you are in San Francisco so some of the hills can be challenging for older adults.

very nice hotel.

Great location for business--- across the street from the B of A building and on a cable car line--- but very good for pleasure also. Maybe 10 minute walk to heart of retail district. Literally next door to Chinatown. $5 cab ride to heart of North Beach. Fanastic lobby, nice restaurant (steak house), great staff. Very clean room, decent size---just a little more traditional than my preference ( 'heavy' dark woods, no flat screen). We were there for our 30th anniversary and we not disappointed.

Fair Price - Fair Service

When we checked in it was discussed that we had paid reservations for one less night than we were supposed to. The lady we discussed the matter with as we checked in said she would take care of the matter and add the additional night. When we came in on Friday night, we were locked out of the room. We went back to the desk and they unlockd the room for us so we could go to bed. It was explained that we could have used the phone in the elevator lobbyk but assumed it was here as an example of an old dial pone and not working. My other comment is that for a hotel of your class, you should have "grab bars" in the bathrooms. As one graduates to the older ages it is a lot easier to get around the bathroom tile floors with grab handles on the walls. This is espicially true with the bath tubs with the high walls. as are in the hotel. Does not make a happy shower. dvd

Ordinary at best at the Signature level Don't recommend

Dissapointed in the "Signature" level room. Small all around. Old style shower with narrow bath tub shower enclosure. Holiday Inn does a better job. Not much for a lot more money. First stay, so had higher expectations for a Omni Hotel. Can only imagine what the regular rooms were like. Probably not much. Don't recommend at all.

first visit to the city

Everyone was very helpful. The location is pretty good, not far from Chinatown, and the cable cars are right outside the building.

Our great weekend in San Francisco

My husband and I spent a great weekend in San Francisco and chose the Omni for our stay. The location was perfect and getting around is really easy whether you choose to walk, use public transportation - or take cabs, which we did alot of the time. The doormen were super nice and always helpful with directions and hailing cabs for us. One night were late for a dinner reservation and the doorman called ahead to the restaurant to let them know we were on the way. The staff at the bar/restuarant, Bob's, in the Omni are great. You can't miss the Dirty Bob martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives. Perfect way to relax before heading to dinner.
