Nob Hill Spa at The Huntington Hotel
|Would I go again? Yes
Ambience: City lux spa feeling
Crowd: Lunching ladies and five star hotel guests
Worst: Feels a little cramped
The Huntington Hotel is such a keeper in San Francisco. It sits there atop Nob Hill quietly next to its flashier neighbors The Mark and The Fairmont, steadfast in its delivery of fine service and well off the conference circuit.
The Nob Hill Spa is attached to the hotel, and offers ten treatments rooms where you can be pampered, slathered, salt-scrubbed and rubbed. And afterwards, you can sit by the indoor infinity pool and enjoy lunch or dinner. (Great spot for getting together a bunch of friends - have a treatment and then enjoy lunch together by the pool.) The views from the pool are spectacular over the south side of San Francisco.
The Lavender Sugar Scrub was a delicious 50 minutes of scrubbing followed by showering and a proper rub down with oil. The spa offers the usual menu of massages and facials as well as LED Light Therapy (think younger healthier skin), and Ancient Healing treatments.
For those who live in the Bay Area, a night at the hotel and a trip to the spa would make a wonderful low hassle escape from home.
