Nob Hill is one of San Francisco's signature neighborhoods, renowned for its city landmarks and the famous hotels that border Huntington Park, a small square and green space centered around a reproduction of the Fontana delle Tartarughe from Rome, also known as the Turtle Fountain. Absorbing some of the flavor by the diverse neighborhoods that surround it, this affluent area has a variety to offer. It features numerous parks, small business and even a few temples, which spill over from Chinatown.
It also includes the grand edifice of Grace Cathedral, with its two towers, carillon of forty-four bronze bells, Ghiberti doors, and iconic rose window. Towards Union Square one can find upscale boutiques, and the Polk Street boundary is lined with nightclubs and popular bars. This is an area where modern luxury hotels stand side by side with vintage barber shops, old corner coffee shops and cocktail lounges from decades past.
