Menu of Services

The 11,000-square-foot (1,021 square meters) Nob Hill Spa was designed with the help of a feng shui expert who used ancient Asian principles to coordinate its look and overall atmosphere. Hotel guests enjoy complimentary use of spa amenities, which include sauna, eucalyptus steam room, whirlpool, and heated infinity pool. An open-air patio with plush lounge chairs provides the perfect locale in which to enjoy a light spa lunch (breakfast and dinner are also available).

A comprehensive selection of specialty treatments (using Babor, SkinCeuticals, and MD Skincare) is performed in one of our ten comfortable treatment rooms. Signature Ancient Healing services based on the therapeutic traditions of Eastern cultures - such as Scen Tao, which combines plant extracts, heated stone application, and aromatherapy massage to regulate chi flow - complement a variety of rejuvenating bodywork modalities, anti-aging facials, and body treatments.

The Chamomile Body Scrub, a new popular treatment, consists of a gentle scrub with a creamy base of Chamomile Flower Oil and finely ground French pumice grains will sweep away dull surface cells and stimulate circulation. A soothing application of chamomile lotion infused with Siberian Fir Oil will leave you feeling soft and relaxed.         

New to the spa menu is the the Deep Sleep Ritual. Perfect ritual for those who struggle to sleep, or suffer with sleep deprivation. A deeply sedating head-to-toe massage, using carefully applied pressures and Swedish techniques, will balance the nervous system and ease an overactive mind. This powerful massage, in conjunction with the award-winning and highly effective Deep Relax Oil, will induce a serious state of relaxation, leaving you prepared for a sound night’s sleep.

Nice but disorganized in so many ways. One example: not hip to the Spafinder app. Hassled at checkout about payment from Wellness account.

Luxury Atop Nob Hill
Nob Hill Spa is THE choice for premium pamper atop posh Nob Hill, providing high-quality therapists, services, and amenities. The indoor infinity pool and the outdoor terrace are the perfect place for pre-/ post-service culinary treats with a glass of bubbly.

Best therapists in the city
I have had massages from several therapists here and all were excellent. Nice places to lounge and relax. Love getting a spa lunch from the spa menu. Love making a half day if it if I can get a chair on balcony. The women's showers and locker area are a little tired, but everything else makes up for it.

High end but well worth it ;-)
Had a GREAT experience here - Finally tried out this spa (I had a mani/pedi and facial). From reception to spa robe assistants to the technicians and estheticians...ALL/EVERYBODY were FRIENDLY, VERY ACCOMMODATING, knowledgeable to their respective jobs. Facilities and amenities were excellent. My only suggestion is to add additional complimentary "treats" similar to other spas at this caliber, they have cheese, mini brownies and sliced fruit...not just fruit nuts...Also, was introduced to the Babor skin care line and it totally helped my itchy super DRY skin. Thank you to Claudine and Madeleine. Definitely will be coming back with hubby to other services.

Best massage ever!
My sister and I share a birthday and we wanted to celebrate with a relaxing spa day. Nob hill spa was just the ticket! Sauna, eucalyptus infused steam room, whirlpool, swimming pool, fitness room, Zen (quiet) room and outdoor balcony. The service from all the staff was outstanding and the facility was exceptionally clean. I had Stacey for my longevity massage and sensational skin and scalp treatment and she was incredible. I had heated massage table, and she ensured periodically that I was warm enough and that her pressure was right. My sisters treatment was equally great. Throughout my treatment I was trying to find another excuse to come back again. This spa was professional, personable and definitely somewhere you should come to relax. I did not want to leave!

Great Day Spa experience in San Francisco
The Nob Hill Spa is a wonderful day retreat in San Francisco. The locker room is not as welcoming as some other hotels, but the relaxing area around the pool and the treatments make up for it. I love having a wonderful location so close to work for a quick afternoon getaway.

Ultimate Tranquility
I was visiting from out of state while on a business trip and based my decision to visit this spa from reading the other reviews. Loved my experience! Service and quality is top notch!
September 19, 2011
My hotel concierge fit me in for a last minute appointment here. I was worried because of how unlkely it is to book a decent last-minute spa appointment in this city that I would end up at a place using a in-house "spa" brand with no research behind it but, jeez, was this a spectacular experience that blew that assumption out of the water. So much so that if I could transport the place to Los Angeles so I could frequent it, I would. Top notch day-spa amenities. Experienced and careful staff. Gloriously well-researched boutique skincare. Beautiful view of downtown San Francisco from the pool and terrace. You can't go wrong.

Great way to relax and treat yourself
We came here to celebrate my 30th birthday - a nice relaxing day away from work and with my sister. Mission accomplished! We loved our day here - we arrived about an hour early and spent time at the pool sipping champagne before being called in for our massage. The massage was great and my favorite touch was that the massage table was heated. I'm always cold so this was a huge plus for me. THere was plenty of fruit infused water to enjoy afterwards - another plus after a massage. We lounged by the pool and hot tub for the remainder of the day taking advantage of the poolside lunch service. The best part - we scheduled our massages for before 10am and we were able to get a 20% discount. We used the difference to drink even more champagne (we had a gift cert)! The pool area is great, it has huge glass windows to look out over SF. The experience was very enjoyable and because we were there on a Monday we practically had the whole place to ourselves. Service was great too - everyone was so nice and accomodating! I would definitely go back and recommend to friends and family.

i still dream about this spa
I treated myself to a full spa day here after a grueling business trip. Not a single complaint. Worth every penny. I still dream about being in my comfy robe, enjoying lunch outside on the terrace, completely relaxed and chilled out. Fantastic!

Excellent day spa
They have a nicely equipped spa facility with a co-ed workout room, indoor tranquility pool, jacuzzi, and fireplace setting, and separate sauna and eucalyptus steam room...perfect place to relax and everything I love to enjoy in a day spa! I will definitely return!

Facilities & Amenities

Facilities & Amenities

With its helpful concierge staff and convenient location, The Scarlet Huntington offers guests numerous opportunities to step out of a spa robe and into the world-famous destinations of San Francisco. In the immediate vicinity, Grace Cathedral, the United States' third-largest Episcopalian church, conducts daily tours of its iconic structure, which includes a labyrinth, medieval furnishings, and 16-foot-high bronze doors modeled after those of the Duomo in Italy. Across the street from the hotel, Huntington Park is a popular spot for residents of nearby Chinatown to practice morning tai chi.

San Francisco's Chinatown district is known as the largest neighborhood devoted to Chinese culture outside of Asia. Here, traditional temples, bazaars, produce markets, clothing stores, and, of course, dozens of restaurants are frequented by locals and crowds of tourists alike. The shopping district of Union Square, located downhill from the hotel, encompasses theaters and art galleries in addition to upscale stores such as Tiffany, Armani, and Marc Jacobs.

A short car ride brings guests to the historic Fisherman's Wharf, the city's most popular tourist destination. For a stimulating walk along the water, try Marina Green, a long, lively stretch of grass with full views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

A San Francisco icon reimagined to weave together a vibrant Singapore Straits Chinese heritage with the high-fashion luxury of Nob Hill, The Scarlet Huntington is an uninhibited haven in one of the city’s most alluring neighborhoods. Recreated as a sensuous, chic and discerningly different boutique hotel, The Scarlet Huntington maintains its timeless red façade, welcoming guests with a new level of grace and glamour, while inviting indulgence and inventiveness at every turn.

The Big 4 Restaurant is named for the four railroad tycoons (Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, Collis P. Huntington, and Mark Hopkins) whose mansions dominated the Nob Hill landscape in the 19th century. This historically aware, club-like eatery aims for an atmosphere that would make these captains of industry feel at home. Known for its nightly wild game special--which offers adventurous carnivores the chance to sample alligator, ostrich, antelope, and others - the restaurant also offers light dishes more in line with the health-conscious traditions of California cuisine. The bull of fare features organic field greens with caramelized walnuts, pan-fried Dungeness crab cakes, and rosemary-crusted rack of Sonoma lamb, among many other options. A spa menu is also available for all three meals both in the spa and at the Big 4.
