Inspire Your Wanderlust

Brimming with history and sophisticated charm, Nob Hill is celebrated as one of San Francisco’s signature neighborhoods. Our hotel is home base to experience timeless architecture, delightful parks, historic landmarks, and iconic attractions.

Soak In Your Surroundings

Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge

Bring your walking shoes. A visit to San Francisco requires a stroll across its mesmerizing centerpiece, the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s an astonishing 1.7 miles long, accompanied by constant vistas of the city, its scenic bay, and the picturesque Marin Headlands. The span was an engineering marvel of its day, and remains so today. Stop by the visitor’s center on the southern end, where you’ll learn about, among other things, the specific hue chosen for the bridge, international orange.

Masonic Center

1100 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

Less than two blocks from the hotel, the Masonic Center is Nob Hill’s stylish venue for live music and other entertainment. Its austere concrete exterior belies the grand theater within. The lobby’s large mosaic window was made with soil and gravel from each of California’s 58 counties while the exterior frieze portrays soldiers from each of the four Armed Forces of the United States.

Coit Tower in downtown San Francisco

Coit Tower and Filbert Street Steps

One Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, CA. 94133

The stunning Coit Tower rewards your climb up the Filbert Street Steps. Or, you can drive to the top of Telegraph Hill, where the tower offers sweeping views of San Francisco and its splendid bay. This was the 1933 bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit, her monument to the city’s fallen firefighters. Take the stairs to the top levels for sweeping panoramas, and linger downstairs to admire the lush murals painted by 26 different artists inspired by Mexican artist Diego Rivera.

Cable Car in San Francisco

Cable Cars & Cable Car Museum

1201 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

The steep hills of San Francisco make traveling by cable car essential. They are, by far, a more enjoyable alternative to a city taxi. One of the most famous is the Powell Street line to the waterfront, so it can be quite crowded, with long waits to board. We recommend the California Street Line, which stops in front of our hotel. The crowds are thinner and the views are equally thrilling. The Cable Car Museum at Mason and Washington Streets chronicles their history and reveals how they operate.



Stroll the colorful streets of Chinatown, the oldest Chinese enclave in North America and one of the largest outside Asia. Enter this exotic world of graceful script and paper lanterns through the green-roofed torii gate at Grant Avenue. Then explore the myriad shops and proprietors selling medicinal herbs, traditional clothing, and more. Connect with the culinary culture when you participate in a tea ceremony, try dim sum, or visit the famous Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory.

Grace Cathedral

Grace Cathedral

1100 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

Nestled near our San Francisco hotel and situated atop Nob Hill stands the magnificent Grace Cathedral. This awe-inspiring landmark harmoniously blends Gothic architecture with spiritual serenity. The intricate design details include towering spires, carvings within the façade, and stained glass windows. Beyond the architectural splendor, Grace Cathedral serves as a haven for introspection and spiritual contemplation.

Union Square

Union Square

A half-mile from our hotel's front door, Union Square and its surrounding streets boast one of the largest concentrations of department stores, high-end boutiques, and art galleries in the United States. Designated a California Historical Landmark, the square is named for its importance as a gathering place for the Union Army during the Civil War. Today, shoppers and theater-goers converge to indulge in retail therapy and take in the latest shows at the nearby Geary, Curran, and other venues.

Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf

A stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf leads past many shops, the Aquarium of the Bay, unique museums, and the historic schooners and tugboats of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. The wharf is still used by active fishermen and their fleets, so you may see briny netting and containers from the morning’s catch, too. One of the most beloved sights is the sea lion colony lying on wooden docks alongside Pier 39. They’ve called this home since 1989, to the delight of visitors.

Aerial view of Golden Gate Park

Golden Gate Park

At more than 1,000 acres, Golden Gate Park is larger than New York’s Central Park. Forests of redwoods, the Japanese Tea Garden, the San Francisco Botanical Garden, a herd of American bison, and the magical all-glass Conservatory of Flowers are among the park’s cherished treasures. Renzo Piano’s stunningly designed California Academy of Sciences is also here, with its aquarium, planetarium, biome simulations, and “living roof” of native plants. This spectacular park is worth a full day’s visit.

Ferry Builiding in San Francisco

Ferry Building Marketplace

1 Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA 94111

San Francisco’s historic Beaux-Arts ferry terminal opened in 1898 to great fanfare. With its European-inspired arcade and remarkable clock tower fashioned after the Giralda in Seville, Spain, it remains one of the city’s most beautiful buildings. In its transit heyday, it was both a ferry and a rail station. Today, it is an emporium for gourmet foodies. Artisan food producers offer cheeses, coffees, local fish, cafés, restaurants, and more. The great nave also hosts a weekly farmer’s market.
