Extended weekend getaway

Hotel was located in Nob Hill close to everything. Cable cars right outside your door that go down to Fisherman's wharf or to Union Square or to Lombard's Crooked road. Rooms were very well maintained , great king size bed with lots of pillows. Free wifi. Bartenders could be a little more educated on the drink mixing skills, a little old fashioned... Staff was very friendly and the gym was a good size with great equipment. Would definitely stay there again . Pricing is middle of the road but great compared to similar quality hotels near this location.

Definitely do the Alcatraz tour. Long walk or fun cable car ride down to Fisherman's wharf where the ferry goes out to the Island.

A GREAT Place To Stay!

From check-in to check-out, my week stay at The Stanford Court was nothing short of amazing. The staff is friendly, the rooms are a bit smaller than the average, but yet VERY clean and cozy. If you are staying in this hotel, you do NOT need a car, this hotel is very centrally located, so you'll be able to walk EVERYWHERE. Tons of restaurants and bars all within a 10 minute walk.

Beautiful hotel and we were lucky to get a room with a view of the water. Comfortable bed. Wonderful that their lobby computers had a printer so we could print our boarding passes when we checked out. The room needed a microwave and for the bathroom light to be IN the bathroom, but besides that everything was wonderful!

Clean and comfortable

The room was clean and comfortable. Staff at the hotel front door meet and greet were VERY casual in both attitude and dress, they did not offer to help with our bags on arrival. Concierge staff were fantastic and VERY helpful, if you need anything they are the ones to go to. Free wifi is very good.

Good location but not worth the price

It's a decent hotel with friendly and helpful staffs and clean room; however, the bed is mediocre and not comfortable to sleep on. Overall, it's not worth the money.

Nice, but not fabulous

I spent four nights at this hotel at the end of a 14 day trip from Seattle to San Francisco. I had really been looking forward to my stay here. I had spent days researching hotels in the city and decided to pay extra to stay in this hotel, and I must admit I was a bit disappointed. In general, it was a nice hotel with a great location, but it fell short of my expectations, particularly for how much it cost. The room: The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. However, it was much smaller than I'd imagined (the pictures are very deceiving), and the decor and furnishings are rather outdated. Service/Amenities: The maid service was okay, but I was surprised they didn't replace the dirty glasses I used or the ice bucket liner. Cable was not HD quality and there was no safe in the room. There was no ice machine on my floor (7th) so I had to take the elevator down to the 1st floor. There were frequest issues with the elevators, and often only 1 out of 3 was working. Staff: The staff members I interacted with were great, and very friendly--particularly the valets. One in particular remembered me from the first day and welcomed me back every time I saw him. The restaurant staff were good and the concierge was helpful. Location: The location was fantastic! Both the California and Powell line cablecars stop right outside. Many of the muni buses stop within a block or two of the hotel (though be prepared that those are steep uphill blocks). Chinatown and Union Square are within very close walking distance, and the historic "Top of the Mark" (cocktail lounge with a 360 view at the top of the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel) is right next door. All in all, this hotel provided a comfortable night's sleep and a great starting point for my daily excursions around the city. But the size of the room, the elevator troubles and the lackluster decor and maid service did not live up to the 4-star luxury accommodations I anticipated.

very good high end hotel

Stanford Court exceeded our expectations. Very helpful staff, great location, comfortable rooms, and you never feel like you are getting nickel and dimed (e.g, for water in the room) as at some hotels.
