Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Stanford Court

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Great Value 4 Star in Prestigious Nob Hill"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Stanford Court is a lovely, low-price-high-value four star hotel in an ideal San Francisco neighborhood. The decor of the rooms is feminine and peaceful, with much creme coloring, subdued lights and noise, and "the bed night's sleep in the city" bed setups with very nice mattresses. You will receive especially nice accommodations for the price, and this is a hotel that doesn't "nickle and dime" for amenities that could easily be free or cheap (like internet and water bottles). This is a great property for any group, and their perfect location allows you to float above the city with a great view, or easily go down the hill on a cable car and explore. Unfortunately, there is no meeting space at the property, so this is a rooms-only hotel unable to host large social gatherings.

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Okay, But Many Little Things Added Up."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
There were eight bed pillows in my room all exactly the same and all too hard. More generally, I asked for my group to have rooms on higher floors. Most of the 10 rooms that my group had were on the very lowest floors. The elevators are very, very slow. It wouldn't hurt to have one real cup for coffee instead of only paper cups.

"An Average Hotel"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Stay was okay. TV never worked. Coffee pot was hidden and I had to dig it out. Breakfast choice is not so great. I have been used to staying at branded hotels and ended up here due to unavailability. Overall, if you need a place to rest and are out of the room as fast as you can, then this is it. Do not count that anything considered normal is available here. One of my friends had a really bad experience with the hotel charging full price and offering a sofa bed to him, which I felt was rude.

"hank you! I will definitely be recommending your service to others I know. It made the confusing task of booking a hotel block easy as pie! I can't imagine how tedious it would have been to call each of the hotels- and who would want to when they all competed for our business instead? :)" C.T. - San Marcos, CA
