The Renaissance Stanford Court Hotel in San Francisco is located at the intersection of Powell and California Streets just up the hill from Union Square in Nob Hill. The hotel is owned by the Marriot Corporation. The hotel has 367 rooms and 26 suites across 8 floors as well as 13,000 square feet in meeting space. Visitors to San Francisco will find the hotel to be an ideal location for those looking to explore Union Square, Chinatown or North Beach. However the hotel is about a 45 minute walk (but less than 5 minute cab drive) to Fisherman’s Wharf. Although the cable cars that pass by the hotel on Powell Street are destined for Fisherman’s Wharf, they are often packed by the time they pass the hotel and it is about a 20 minute walk down a steep hill to their originating point (and hour wait). Market Street is also a 20 minute walk and Union Square about 10. It should be noted as the hotel is on a steep hill the walk back will be quite a work out.
Many of the rooms in the Renaissance Stanford Court enjoy spectacular breath taking views of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay. Guests looking for a guaranteed view of San Francisco should ask for the “Queen Skyline Room”. The Queen Skyline Room has 180 views of San Francisco’s financial district, Union Square and the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge. All the rooms are equipped with high speed internet, flat screen tvs and the latest amenities in work space and comfort. Rooms come in different sizes offering a range of beds from Kings to Twins. The hotel is just down the hill from the Intercontinental Marc Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels.
Located adjacent to the Fairmont and Intercontinental Mark Hopkins in Nob Hill (adjacent to Union Square) this hotel is a five star property with high level of service.
