The Stanford Court, San Francisco

Nob Hill, San Francisco

Virgin rating

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. The hotel's restaurant has a seasonal menu celebrating the Bay Area and California's culinary artisans. Whilst in its hip, stylish lounge setting, why not try one of their hand-crafted cocktails or maybe a glass from the extensive wine list.

The staff was extemely corteous and went beyond to make us feel right at home; special shoutout to Carlton for helping us find the best rooms available and being such an entertaining individual.

Stanford Court is in the perfect location, as the cable car runs right by it! The staff was fantastic - from the courteous valets to the awesome bartender - always polite and friendly.

Stanford Court is in the perfect location, as the cable car runs right by it! The staff was fantastic - from the courteous valets to the awesome bartender - always polite and friendly. Our room was clean and we were upgraded at no extra charge, as the hotel wasn't full. The buffet breakfast at $30/person was a bit pricey for what you get, but we splurged since it was our last day. For those not familiar with parking in SF, "free valet parking" doesn't mean "free parking". Otherwise, it was a great place and we'd definitely stay there again. Read less

We stayed at the Stanford Court Hotel for two nights and I have to say that it exceeded our expectations in every way. Carlton was the most amazing. My boyfriend and i called to see if we could get a room where the TV was located facing the bed, and Carlton switched us to a beautiful and more spacious room, and he always met us with a smile when… Read more
We stayed at the Stanford Court Hotel for two nights and I have to say that it exceeded our expectations in every way. Carlton was the most amazing. My boyfriend and i called to see if we could get a room where the TV was located facing the bed, and Carlton switched us to a beautiful and more spacious room, and he always met us with a smile when we returned or left the hotel. It's a pleasure to come across with staff that is so committed to making guests feel at home . Thank you Carlton for going the extra mile, we really appreciate it! Must highlight that they offer reusable water bottles that you refill as many times as you want from a filter in the lobby. Great environmentally friendly practice!!! And the water tastes GREAT (I'm VERY picky with water taste) Read less

Avoid this place - shady business practices. At checkout we had to pay $130 dollars for use of "coffee facilities & gym" which we never used and this was not even mentioned when we checked in. These are not 'resort fees' like you might think - be careful

Valet was very friendly and well worth it. Rooms are very nice, modern and our view was great. Very short walk to china town and not too far walk to fishermans wharf so the location couldnt be beat. also got to enjoy some great bars just a few blocks away. Read less
