It all started with Leland Stanford, an industrial railroad tycoon who built the Central Pacific Railroad—a 19th-century highway that catalyzed the exchange of new cultures and ideas. Stanford’s 1876 mansion became a relic of inspired luxury in the lush Nob Hill neighborhood until it was destroyed in a fire during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. In 1912, investor Lucien H. Sly transformed the vacant lot into the posh Stanford Court Apartments. 60 years and a dramatic debut later, Stanford’s legacy stands today at the Stanford Court Hotel.

Restored and relocated to the hotel’s arrival porte-cochère entrance is a 3-ton,10-foot tall penguin sculpture by Beniamino Bufano, which for 45 years was hidden in the landscape at the corner of Pine and Powell Streets. Bufano created many public art sculptures which can be found throughout the city and Bay Area.

Stanford Court welcomes guests of all abilities. The property descriptions aim to allow any visitor to make an informed decision on whether the hotel is an appropriate choice for their needs. While the views are amazing, it’s the city’s energy and restless spirit of transformation that quickens the heartbeat and gets your mind spinning. At Stanford Court Hotel, it's crafted a guest experience that plays off this buzzing atmosphere. With its cleverly designed rooms, forward-looking wellness amenities, and in-house art curation program, you’ll feel at one with the City by the Bay.

More than a century later, the privileged perch is still the place to be in San Francisco—where visitors can see what’s on the horizon of a city on the edge of innovation. Stanford Court Hotel was aptly named after a forward-thinking railroad tycoon who helped lay the tracks for the first transcontinental railroad. Not coincidentally, the hotel sits at the only intersection of San Francisco’s legendary cable car lines.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
