Sample Huntington Hotel Room
Charles writes, "It is very quiet, understated and well-located at the top of Nob Hill right across from Grace Cathedral.
There is a darling doorman who has been there for 37 years. The staff is efficient and gracious and they always try to please the customers.
The rooms and apartments are all beautifully decorated with lots of charm and accessories, and there is a restaurant with a piano bar
called the Big Four in the lobby. The food for room service comes from here and it is very good as well. I have stayed there about 6 times. Nice selection
of in-room movies.
In-room safe and large windows in all the rooms which actually open. Front rooms overlook that small park right in front of Grace
Cathedral. Apartments consist of living room with dining L, small kitchen with full-size refrigerator containing mini-bar type selections. One bathroom,
bedroom with lots of closet space, 2 televisions, and lots of telephones with internet hook-up and a fax machine in the living room. Each apartment is
decorated differently. Certain apartments also have fireplaces in them. Charming, charming, charming...
Evidently some people actually live there all the time. I was sick at the end of the trip this time and late check-out was not a problem.
They are very, very nice there. Service is quite personal and they try to use your name and sometimes even remember you from before. As I said, they always
try to please their guests and I have always been a very happy customer here. It's kind of like going "home" each time I am in San Francisco."
While hotel prices fluctuate rapidly -- prices recently quoted ranged from $199-$755 with a median price quote of $335.
Jim writes, " A wonderful hotel, my home away from home when traveling. Excellent staff, great spa, outstanding food in the Big Four restaurant....rivals anything in San Francisco, and classic bar for a martini or wine. Two great restaurants down Taylor Street within walking distance.....Vinticello and Nob Hill Cafe. The complete package. "
