Weekend getaway

Great location atop Nob Hill with great views of the city. Near Union Square but far away enough to avoid crowds. Sits atop steep hill so would advise to take either a cab or the cable car that runs right next to hotel.

Pretty happy

nothing bad to say, met all expectations. Parking can be a hassle for sure, but call the hotel in advance, there are some areas close by that offer a slight discount compared to the regular parking garages.

Great city views,near Grace Cathedral and Chinatown

The room was spacious, with very comfortable bedding, chairs, windows to open or air conditioning. The walk up to this spot is challenging when following 511 public transportation directions, but ideal location for great urban walking, including a mile down to the Ferry Terminal and water's edge. Sophisticated lobby and bar for meeting up with friends.

Great Nob Hill luxury at reasonable price

Located right across the street from the Fairmont and beside the Mark Thompkins, The Stanford Court gives you the luxury and location of the top hotels without the excessive cost. The hotel is clean, staff is friendly and rooms are perfectly fine. The rooms are big or too luxurious but they are clean, quiet and comfortable which is what really matters.

Comfortable and elegant

Check-in was a breeze, the room was clean and tidy, and our view was spectacular. It was an excellent value, and I highly recommend this hotel if you're staying in the area.

Skip this hotel..

This hotel is not what it used to be, it has gone through a cheap looking renovation and in the process lost its edge. It felt as ordinary as the clientele who stays there. If you are a discerning person like myself then move on, this is not the hotel for you.

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.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

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.
