    There is no insulation between rooms, so you hear the bath being run and then the person having a bath! Ditto shower. Corridors reverberate and people seem toned to talk at high volume when they exit the lift :( Breakfast good, dinner limited choices.More

    Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the

    Yes there are several rental locations in about a mIle radius. I rented from enterprise and they came and picked me up and dropped me off. I could have walked, however it would have been about a mile each way.
