    It makes my day to read your comments about the clean rooms and easy reception process. I especially like the honesty about the breakfast restaurant. It's perfectly reasonable to enjoy the food and service but chose other options for a variety of reasons. Thank you.

    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.

    Sorry the pool was open when we stayed there. You can contact them by email and ask the question, if your unable to call. Even if it's not open when you stay there is plenty of things to do near by.

    There are quite a few parking garages around. Yes, the hotel does have its own garage and it's very convenient. But, it's $40 per night plus tax!!. Highway robbery.
    Hi, I have a reservation in the hotel for end of February and I would like to know if hotel swimming pool is heated? Thanks!
