The Scarlet Huntington and Nob Hill Spa offers a welcoming atmosphere in the midst of San Francisco's upscale Nob Hill neighborhood. Originally constructed in 1924 as a high-end apartment building, the family owned and operated property houses 136 contemporary-style guestrooms and suites. The 11,000-square-foot (1,021 square meters) Nob Hill Spa features an indoor infinity-edge pool with floor-to-ceiling windows offering far-reaching views of downtown San Francisco, a fireside lounge, and steam and sauna rooms. The spa's extensive services reflect the four founding cultures of San Francisco - Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Victorian - and include a variety of holistic and Ayurvedic treatments, as well as beauty and relaxation treatments influenced by diverse healing traditions. Signature offerings include the Nob Hill Spa Ultimate Massage and the Nob Hill Spa Ultimate Facial. Contemporary American spa cuisine is available poolside form the award-winning Big 4 restaurant.

Good Morning BethanyPhillpstravel, Thank you for leaving feedback regarding your recent visit with us. I apologize that you did not find the spa atmosphere enjoyable. The spa tends to be social during the weekend, which can account for a busier day and sharing lockers. I understand that this takes away from the atmosphere, but I'm glad you had the opportunity...

The Spa is beautiful and the staff is very well trained. My massage was one of best I've ever had as well as the facial. We used the pool and jacuzzi and sunned on deck with a cocktail and snack. We lefted feeling very relaxed. If you need some pampering this is the place.

Booked into Nob Hill Spa as it was recommended to us by the Hotel we were staying at in the same street.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
