The Huntington Hotel
Fusing the historic grandeur of its prestigious Nob Hill location with design elements from Singapore Straits Chinese (Peranakan) heritage, The Huntington Hotel is as full of character and charm as the city surrounding it. Accommodations and communal areas are striking and lavish, and The Big 4’s renowned menu and ambiance channel a vintage, gentleman’s club feel, and attracts the city’s great and good. Perfectly placed for discovering all that San Francisco has to offer, the hotel — and its three-level penthouse spa in particular — provide a stylish retreat from the exciting city’s hustle and bustle.
- Relax amid opulence in one of 134 guestrooms and suites with Peranakan-inspired décor

Set in the heart of Nob Hill — one of San Francisco’s original seven hills and a sweet spot from which to see some of the best views of the city — the hotel is named after Collis Potter Huntington, one of the Big Four railroad tycoons of the Old West. While its handsome Georgian brick frontage speaks to the neighborhood’s privileged past, the hotel’s Peranakan-style interiors nod not only to the hotel’s current owners, but to San Francisco’s thriving Chinese community as well.

Whimsical, elegant, and unabashedly lavish, the hotel’s 134 guestrooms blend sumptuous fabrics and Singapore Straits Chinese style to unique effect, showcasing intricate patterns in vivid tones of pumpkin, teal, citron, and eggplant. This rich color palette is matched by the opulence of the furniture — swooping upholstered headboards, hand-carved chairs, and antique mirrors. There are four guestroom categories of increasing size, with premium rooms featuring an additional seating area. Each of the hotel’s three one-of-a-kind signature suites reflects a different nuance of the region’s heritage, yet all are plush, palatial, and exceptionally striking.
When you are ready to explore the city, let the knowledgeable concierge team plan an insider's itinerary for you. If you are in town for work, the hotel’s captivating meeting rooms are a great choice for conducting business.
The Huntington Hotel’s pièce de résistance is The Big 4, a beloved culinary experience reflecting San Francisco history. Beyond the hotel itself, Nob Hill is home to many high-end eateries, and you are just a few streets away from Chinatown’s authentic Asian cuisine.
The Big 4 – Named after the Big Four railroad tycoons who contributed to the city’s early development, this restaurant’s dark wood panels and glossy, vintage leather chairs are evocative of a bygone era. Settle into the refined atmosphere with an aperitif and choose from a menu known for its modern twists on classic upscale American cuisine.
Spread across three levels of sanctuary-like tranquility, Nob Hill Spa — accessible with a daily access fee — is the perfect urban oasis, featuring saunas, steam rooms, a zen relaxation room, a whirlpool hot tub, an indoor infinity pool, and a sunbathing deck offering sweeping skyline views. If in town on business, touch base with your colleagues in the boldly stylish and fully equipped meeting rooms — Elite (276 sq ft), Epitome (437 sq ft), Excelsior (619 sq ft) — each one featuring its own distinctive aesthetic.
Head out to explore the vibrant neighborhood around you, as Nob Hill is home to all sorts of world-class restaurants and sophisticated bars. Union Square, a 10-minute stroll from the hotel, makes for a brilliant shopping destination, while Chinatown and the Theatre District are also nearby. The counterculture hot spot of Haight-Ashbury can be reached in roughly 10 minutes by car. Meanwhile, a 15-minute drive will get you to picture-perfect destinations like the vividly colored Victorian houses known as the “Painted Ladies” and the panoramic views available from Twin Peaks.
