Perched atop posh Nob Hill with captivating views of the San Francisco Bay and downtown skyline, The Scarlet Huntington is a tranquil retreat in the heart of one of the world’s most vivacious cities.

Originally opened in 1924 as the Huntington Hotel, The Scarlet Huntington offers stylish accommodations that weave together a vibrant Singapore Straits Chinese heritage with the high-fashion luxury of Nob Hill. A recent 15 million dollar renovation brought new furnishings and a brighter contemporary palette,transforming the interior spaces of the upscale boutique hotel with hues of fuchsia, purple, gold, and black paired with a mix of patterns and textures.

These aesthetic differences are also evident in the chic guest quarters. All 134 rooms and suites boast avant-garde designs with bold color schemes, whimsical furniture, USB ports, and electrical charging stations. In the bathrooms, guests can find plush towels, lighted mirrors, and a collection of superb bath products.

Though much of the décor has changed, the hotel’s iconic red brick façade, illuminated sign, and period character have been preserved—from the hand-carved wooden entry door to the old mail chute, which is still in use. Other elements of the historic hotel remain intact, including the award-winning Nob Hill Spa,a three-level oasis that offers rejuvenating treatments, saunas, steam rooms, and an indoor infinity pool.

Such splendid accommodations and amenities may make visitors reluctant to leave the premises, but merely minutes away are some of San Francisco’s most popular attractions: Union Square, Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

After exploring the city, guests can return for dinner at the hotel’s acclaimed Big 4 Restaurant, which serves innovative California cuisine in an old San Francisco–style setting. The dining area also features nightly piano entertainment, a cozy fireplace, and a classy cocktail lounge. It’s the perfect place to end the day and soak up the quiet, timeless elegance of The Scarlet Huntington.
