Settled by the industrialists (including Leyland Stanford and Charles Crocker) in the late 19th century, Nob Hill has always had a certain air of formality and glamour.  Centrally located, Nob Hill is home to the very famous pair of San Francisco institutions, the Fairmount Hotel and the Mark Hopkins hotel, as well as the sublime Grace Cathedral.  Nob Hill provides city living at its best, with access to bars, restaurants and theatre all just outside your front door.
