Home to grand mansions, classic San Francisco apartments, and Edwardian condominiums, Nob Hill is an enclave of affluence. Five-star hotels, bespoke boutiques, and fine dining spots add entertaining options to this lofty locale. The Top of the Mark, Keiko á Nob Hill and Soda Popinsksi’s are just a few local faves that give the area its fizz. Nob Hill is the ideal base for exploration. North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, Financial District – it’s all downhill from here.
