Top 10 Romantic Hotels in San Francisco/Bay Area
Bold renovations bring a sassy attitude and playful flair to this landmark hotel.
One of San Francisco's most beloved hotels, The Scarlet Huntington beautifully captures the flair of this city. We love the steep, foggy hills, culture oozing from every corner and well-dressed people stepping out with purpose.
The discreet Huntington has drawn heads of state, celebs and world travelers to its prestigious address on Nob Hill since 1924. Before you head out again—you're just three blocks from Chinatown, four blocks from the theater district and the cable cars stop right at the door—you must take in the amazing views of the skyline, Grace Cathedral, Huntington Park, and the Bay.
Or stay in and unwind in the antique-strewn and Feng Shui arranged Nob Hill Spa for dreamy treatments such as an Aromatherapy Associates Massage , Healthy Glow Facial and the Seaweed Leaf Body Ritual. Eighteen-foot high windows with spectacular views of the city skyline surround the infinity indoor pool.
Built in 1924, the Georgian-style, 12-story brick structure features 134 guest rooms and suites, all with views. Guests enjoy twice-daily maid service, nightly turndown, valet laundry service, complimentary access to the spa, the business center and complimentary chauffeured sedan service from the hotel to the Financial District and Union Square Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Big 4 Restaurant serves robust contemporary American cuisine. It was named after the great railroad barons of the Central Pacific Line, Charles Crocker, Leland Stanford, Mark Hopkins, and C.P. Huntington and we imagine it matches these magnates' large appetites. It is known locally as "the place" for the power lunch. We hear locals love the crab cakes and occasional wild game dishes.
