Although we live in San Francisco and have a beautiful place, I've spent many evenings at this grand hotel with my husband just to feel like a tourist and get pampered. This gem of a hotel sits on top of eclectic Nob Hill where there is plenty of public transport including the charming signature cable car that transports you up and down the hill to more expansive transport hubs lower down in the city. Cabs and Uber cars are easily obtained. Our family visits each year for Christmas to view their home made ginger bread house with real cookies and candies. It is magnificent showcased and I believe almost two floors in height.
