HUNTINGTON HOTEL on NOB HILL

The height of elegance in San Francisco is to be found atop Nob Hill in the classic and understated Huntington. Built as a residence hotel in 1924 by the architectural firm of Weeks and Day, this was the first brick and steel highrise west of the Mississippi. The Huntington is now the pride of the Cope family, innkeepers extraordinaire.
You will sense the atmosphere of quiet luxury and security as the doorman admits you to the intimate lobby, and you will understand why visiting nobility and celebrities of opera, symphony, and stage choose The Huntington.
The stylish, comfortable rooms, each different, have been designed by Anthony Hail, Lee Radziwill, and Elizabeth Bernhardt. All are spacious and elegantly furnished. Of the 30 suites, our personal favorite is the Ambassador Suite (#1207), with its ornate gilt ceiling and 17th- and 18th-century Italian furnishings. Robert Redford slept here; so did Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Luciano Pavarotti's choice, Suite #514, is done in delightful yellow and aqua English chintz with a Chinese motif.
The Big Four Restaurant and Bar, named for the Central Pacific railroad magnates, offers continental cuisine in a refined atmosphere of green leather banquettes and rich gleaming mahogany. We recommend starting with Wild Game Chili. Then savor our unique Rack of Lamb, followed by the Creme Brulee for dessert. The cozy bar is a San Francisco favorite.
