The hotel

An ideal base, Stanford Court is fresh, fashionable and at the centre of everything on your to-do list. Enjoy sweeping views of the city, the bay and the majestic Golden Gate Bridge from its great spot, atop historic Nob Hill. You're close to Union Square's top shopping, dining and attractions, just steps from the historic cable cars, and a short walk to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf too.

Very nice place to go to for good food, drinks and quite vibe. Spent most of my time in san Francisco here since it’s on the hotel lobby. Been very frequent and would very much recommend it. Ask for may & Jorge / they’ll show you great service

Our stay at another hotel was cancelled, so we moved to TSC (lucky us)! Shout out to Tony, who not only provided excellent service at the bar but shared great local restaurant recommendations as well.

We celebrated our 10th year wedding anniversary recently and stayed at the Stanford Court. I really must say this is a beautiful hotel. The Staff is Friendly and the entire atmosphere was top notch. Definitely a recommendation when you're in town.
