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.

We loved this hotel!

From the moment we pulled up in front of the hotel, we were greeted with smiles and friendliness from everyone we came in contact with. The staff is excellent! The lobby is lovely and welcoming where we spent time sitting and visiting with friends, very nice. Our rooms were furnished beautifully, very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you would want. We will definitely be back. Next time we will probably dine at the hotel restaurant but had other plans for this trip.

Great hotel!

Beautiful hotel within walking distance to many area attractions (embarcadero, market street, westfield mall, union square), and trolley service runs directly in front of lobby. The valet and bell staff immediately welcome guests and registration staff are fast, courteous and extremely nice/polite. Definitely return to the Omni SF.

Great hotel

Stayed at the hotel for 2 days post Christmas and really enjoyed the hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean, hotel staff is also very friendly. the location though is bitter sweet. hotel is located in financial district and so that makes it great place for lunch and breakfast however, it is not ideal for dinner. most of the good restaurants close after 7. SF is small city so you can always cab towards mission for good food and also to major attractions for less than $15.

Romantic weekend getaway

Had just one night in SF with the gf, and decided to try this place out. Great hotel. Looks and feels very high class, with a little bit of that old school tradition to it. Location was terrific, we were either a short walk or a short taxi ride to plenty of restaurants or clubs/bars. The room was terrific - great, comfortable king bed and a very warm vibe in the room overall (which was perfect for a December weekend). Place is usually pretty expensive, but the deal through here made it feel ilke a real steal. Would be happy to stay here again in the future.

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.
