A small, elegant and clublike hotel in Nob Hill.. The Scene Named after Collis P. Huntington, one of California's "Big Four" who built the Southern Pacific Railroad, this 12-story brick hotel overlooks Grace Cathedral, Huntington Park and the Flood Mansion, former home of another of the Big Four and now the Pacific Union Club. California Street cable cars take you down the hill to Chinatown and the Financial District, and a transfer at Powell Street takes you to Fisherman's Wharf, making this a convenient location for business or pleasure travel.
The Amenities All 140 guest rooms and suites are individually decorated by such notables as Anthony Hail, interior designer to the stars, and Lee Radziwill, sister of the late Jackie Onassis, who once used these as residential apartments. Most rooms and all suites have wet bars, and some suites have kitchens. All rooms feature high-speed DSL lines, two-line phones, data ports and fax machines. Some rooms feature panoramic views of the city and the bay.
