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.

Great location, service, comfortable

We arrived early and were checked in, no problem. The service was exceptional, the room very comfortable and high class. The location was fantastic, easy to walk to China Town, Union Square and Market Street, Ferry Building, and Movies. The doorman were very helpful with information. Will stay again.

1-night stay at Omni San Francisco hotel

This is a very nice hotel and I found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. My one issue was that I had requested a non-smoking room, which they couldn't accommodate (in fairness they did not guarantee that the could accommodate guest preferences). The room had the smell of using some kind of product to cover up smoke. I called the front desk, and the staff person said that there were no available rooms to which I could move. They did send someone to "ionize" the room, a process which took about 45 minutes and during which I had to leave the room. It smelled better for a little while but then the odor returned.

Nice Hotel

This is a great hotel for a short visit, not a longer vacation as we had. The hotel is located in the business district so most restaurants and shops close after business hrs and on weekends. Chinatown and Washington Square are in walking distance so as long as you like Chinese and Italian it's great. Otherwise go to Pier39 at Fishermans Wharf via bus service for seafood and sea lions! Most dining is in the mid to higher range in SanFran. Bus service was excellent, safe and reliable, even at night. The hotel was a little noisy at night in the hallways with business travelers coming and going at all hrs of the early morning who were not respectful of the time. There are plenty of doormen, but none who offered to assist with our luggage so we had to take our own. The housekeeping staff was excellent as well as the concierge [...]. The room was just large enough with a nice bathroom. Overall it was a nice hotel but I would not stay there again for a long vacation.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

It is nice to spend a couple hrs walking, starting down Fillmore Street and then ending at Union Street and have lunch or coffee in an outdoor cafe. The shops were great and unique on Union. You can easily get there by bus. Also you can walk about 6 blks down California St and spend an hr or two at the Ferry Bldg, especially on Tues, Thurs or Saturday when they have the outdoor market.

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.

One week vacation with Omni

Decided to tour San Francisco for a week long vacation and stayed with Omni. Check-in was at 3:00pm, but we've arrived early at 9:00am. Front Desk was able to get us a room with no wait. Concierge was able to assist us in booking city tour, trolley pass, and info on rental car. Can't say enough about the excellent staff services! By that afternoon, every Omni personnel knew and addressed me by my name. The hotel is at the center of everything. Wedged between Financial District, China Town, and Union Square. The room is smaller compared to other Omnis I've stayed in, but considering the downtown location, it is decent sized. Free Internet WiFi, if you join their free customer loyalty program, which also gets you free clothes press and bottle water. Restroom was comfortable with standard bathtub shower with full amenities. I appreciate the choice of soap and body wash. Took one star away from rating due to hotel's downtown location. There was no onsite pool, and the room is somewhat noisy given a trolley line runs next to the hotel. I personally do not have issues with it, but wanted to share this info with fellow travelers.

Great hotel!

Stayed there while attending a wedding. Staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. It is in the financial district, so much of the immediate neighborhood shuts down on the weekend, but there was easy access to the rest of the city, so no worries about a few places being shut.

If you want to go to the Slanted Door, but cannot get a reservation, show up when they open for lunch (11 a.m.) or dinner (5:30 p.m.) and they will likely be able to accommodate you, at the bar if not at a table of your own.

Komen 2010 weekend

This hotel is beautiful and the staff could not have been nicer. They are wonderful with children staying at the hotel. Gave our son a goodie backpack and milk with cookies after we checked in. Unfortunately we paid extra for two double beds and it was not available once we checked in. For the amount of money we spent it was a bit disappointing. One king size bed and a fold out couch didn't cut it.
