The Scarlet Huntington Hotel

1075 California St., San Francisco, California, 94108, USA

Stars from Bogart and Bacall to Picasso and Pavarotti have stayed in this venerable hotel, famed for its spacious rooms and suites, most of which have great views of Grace Cathedral, the bay, or the fog rolling across the city skyline. New owners revamped the look, playing on an Asian meets Moroccan aesthetic without sacrificing class. Brightly colored textured headboards and puffy satin blackout curtains, golden detailing on furnishings and lamps, and high ceilings infuse fun and charm into this old gal. The elegant Nob Hill Spa complex provides panoramic city views from the indoor pool, where white-jacketed waiters deliver healthy spa cuisine and champagne. The Big 4 Restaurant serves contemporary American cuisine to guests making business deals on green-leather booths under a collection of San Francisco and Western memorabilia.
