The Newly Renovated Stanford Court Hotel in Nob Hill
Stanford Court has truly pushed the envelope for hotel renovations. Located in the historic Nob Hill area, known for its mansions and a history of the swankiest hotels in the city.
The story of Nob Hill dates way back to the founding roots of San Francisco. Home to Gothic-style Grace Cathedral, the charming Huntington Park where you will see many locals walking their dogs, kids enjoying mid day sun and of course, the beloved San Francisco Cable Cars swooshing by on California street. This is truly the center of San Francisco.
The new renovations at Stanford Court integrate Nob Hill's grand history with the innovative and tech-focused spirit of today's San Francisco. Beautiful collection of modern art rotates within digital frames. Pieces are so unique, you may skip a round or two of elevator going up. Photography lovers will appreciate the famous Muybridge photography frames displayed across the walls at the entrance lobby.
Book lovers will find themselves right at home, in the cosy library with a breathtaking collection of books about San Francisco. You will truly wish for rainy day, to cuddle up and read all you can.
Find your zen at the Grace Cathedral, which offers a variety of cultural experiences including a walking labyrinth meditation, Tuesday night yoga and many classical or jazz concerts.
