Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located in the heart of San Francisco atop Nob HIll, The Scarlet Huntington Hotel combines old San Francisco with Singapore Straits Chinese heritage. This 4-star posh hotel is a true beauty and is covered in brick and ivy. It is only a half a mile from Union Square. We suggest taking the cable car back up after a long day of shopping -- the hills can be daunting.

Guestrooms on property are larger than usual San Francisco rooms are beautifully appointed with bold color palettes. May rooms have city or bay views from them. 

Head to the bar at the Big 4 Restaurant, order a cocktail and go back in time. The dimly lit restaurant is lined with rich mahogany. Stained glass and green booths further set the ambiance. Dine on inventive American cuisine before retiring for the evening. 

In need of a little rest and relaxation? Unwind at the Nob Hill Spa, a refuge for locals and visitors alike. Soak in the indoor pool, catch some rays on a chaise lounge on the outdoor patio or zen out in the relaxation room.
