Editorial review:

This historic spot has a great location on top of Nob Hill and a staff that bends over backwards for guests. There are views of the bay, a European décor, and a beautiful lobby. Some critics felt the room quality varied greatly and recommended the newer wing. Cocktails in the famous Tonga Room are recommended.

  • The views are fabulous and magnificent hotel right on the top of San Fran. Instead, the only free coffee is in the lobby area before 7am, the service is amazing and the staff takes extra good care of you, beautiful marble bathroom and comfortable bed completed the arrangements.

    Decor dated and old Interior. The room was dirty, unfortunately, the food was way below mediocre.

  • The location is the best, the hotel situated on the top of a very big hill and the lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are luxurious , and the service is great. The bedding is quite comfortable and the food is excellent and the Mai Tai drink lived up to its popularity.

    Gives you an idea of old San Francisco highlife and loud cleaning staff banking on doors shouting house keeping early in the morning. An expensive museum, furniture looked dated and bare.

  • Good views of san fransisco, the rooms in the tower are modern and Union Square and Chinatown are just down the hill. The hotel entrance is impressive, home away from home even better and the interior seemed clean I looked out the window. V comfortable bed and huge marble bathroom, the bars are quite excellent. Super food and drink also a wonderful history.

  • Perfect service in every area, the stores are huge and lots of selection, china Town is just a few blocks away. Overall setting is luxurious and the lobby is absolutely gorgeous. Friendly personnel at the bell desk and high speed internet is great. The bar is nice and the most comfortable pillows I’ve ever rested my head on.

    The location at the top of Nob Hill is fairly convenient and for a room at this price point, the level of quality seemed poor.

  • The location was great, the decor was lovely and wonderful christmas decorations we were there. The staff were most helpful, rooms were spacious and the breakfast buffet was excellent.

    Bar and lounge area closed, thus the value for the money is rated low. The building is noisy and service is slow. Gym use should really be included in the already expensive price.

  • Location was very good, our room on the 21st floor in the new tower had generous proportions and the hotel was beautiful and the history incredible. The lobby bar was lovely, staff were friendly and concierge lady was very helpful. The bed was incredibly comfortable, breakfast was wonderful and the served dinner was delicious.

    The view was lovely, just not particularly clear and christmas buffet was disappointing in the evening. And looking at the old pictures and menus was quite fun.
