Huntington Hotel (San Francisco)
The Huntington Hotel is one of the landmark luxury hotels at the top of the Nob Hill district of San Francisco, California. It is located at 1075 California Street, cross street is Taylor Street. The hotel is a twelve-story, Georgian-style brick building that features 135 guest rooms and suites.
The hotel is named after Collis P. Huntington, one of the Big Four railroad tycoons of the Old West. However, it is across California Street from Huntington's Mansion, on the site of a mansion owned by the Tobin family, founders of the Hibernia Bank. It was originally designed by Weeks and Day as the Huntington Apartments in 1922, and was converted to a hotel by real estate developer Eugene Fritz, who bought the property in 1924. Fritz' grandchildren still run the hotel, Nob Hill spa, and Big Four restaurant on the property.
