I stayed at Scarlet Huntington last Summer after the renovation. The service was excellent from the beginning till the end. Hotel staff was able to accommodate my special request and placed me in a room on high floor with a view of the park. The room was huge with a very comfortable bed. I will recommend this hotel and will...

My husband and I stayed at the Scarlet Huntington twice last week -- before and after a long week-end in wine country -- and we cannot wait to return!

This place is rapidly becoming my favorite hotel in the city. You can always get a cable car or a cab - and of course there is Uber. You are by the Cathedral and the small park and in a wonderful area for walking to lots of bars and restaurants. The hotel is smaller - call it charming. Besides the...

This hotel reminded us of an elegant hotel from bygone days. Scarlet was the color theme throughout the hotel and it was unique and beautiful. The hotel is across the street from Grace Cathedral.

The Scarlet Huntington, formerly the Huntington, is one of San Francisco's oldest iconic hotels. The service is top notch.

The connecting restaurant made it so easy to not leave the hotel the first...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to spark the imagination and provide an adventure for the senses, the much beloved and newly renovated Huntington Hotel re-emerges in May 2014 from a $15 million renovation as The Scarlet Huntington. The Scarlet Huntington builds upon the property's original charm, graciousness and exceptionally high standards while introducing locals and visitors to a unique and avant-garde style that is influenced by a vibrant Singapore Peranakan heritage woven together with the opulence of San Francisco. More than just a name, The Scarlet possesses a distinguished charm and charismatic aura, likened to a gracious hostess who indulges guests with a luxurious stay experience. Providing a warm ad familiar welcome, the iconic red of the former Huntington Hotel's exterior - as displayed in the brick facade and illuminated sign high atop the hotel - will permeate the new aesthetic, representing the hotel's heritage while embracing the passion and allure defined by The Scarlet; offering uninhibited luxury to every guest. ... more   less
