With its iconic landmarks and historic hotels, modern Nob Hill carries forward the old, posh San Francisco of land barons and railroad tycoons with panache. This is the neighborhood for a stroll through the gothic Grace Cathedral, or a cool, nighttime cable car ride beside chandeliered mansions and sumptuous parks - with your destination being one of several penthouse-level hotel bars. Flush against the Financial Dis...trict, Chinatown, and the Tenderloin, Nob Hill's location foils its untouchable feel. The rest of the city flows in and out, giving the area its undeniably urban sensibility.View more
