San Francisco is a city of contrasts. Resting on 40 hills, the city varies in altitude from sea level to 929 feet. It is located on a narrow peninsula, bordered on one side by the Pacific Ocean and the other by San Francisco Bay, one of the largest landlocked harbors in the world. In the heart of it all is Nob Hill, center of luxurious living in the last half of the 19th century, home of the railroad tycoons and successful gold miners. Step through the etched glass doors of the Nob Hill Inn and be transported back to the golden age of San Francisco. Built in 1907 as a private home, the Inn has been lovingly restored to maintain the ambience of a turn-of-the-century townhouse. Situated in the upscale Nob Hill district, Nob Hill Inn is convenient to all of San Francisco's attractions. Nightlife is virtually limitless. Some outstanding spots are the Club Fugazi, the Sir Francis Drake Starlight Room and the San Francisco Hilton. Before ending the evening, take in the glittering city from top of the town at places like the Top of the Mark in the Hotel Mark Hopkins, the Crown at the Fairmont or Henri's Room at the Hilton. We will be having exterior painting done from 09/04/08 - 12/01/08. Please contact us directly if you have any questions on how this may affect your stay.
