Home to some of the fanciest hotels in the region, Nob Hill in San Francisco oozes luxury and glamor. Embark on a rejuvenating city-meets-wellness break with a stay in one of these excellent spa hotels.

Once known as California Hill, this well-to-do San Francisco neighborhood was renamed when wealthy nobs (a one-time slang term for rich people) built mansions in the area. The tone they set still survives. Splendor is found throughout the wealthy neighborhood, in Michelin-star restaurants, grand architecture and luxurious spa hotels. For the latter, here’s where you should stay.
