San Franciscos historic Huntington Hotel is up for sale

The historic, 12-story Huntington Hotel & Nob Hill Spa, which shares San Franciscos Nob Hill with the Fairmont, the Mark Hopkins and the Ritz-Carlton, is up for sale for the first time in its history, according to a May 6 release issued by the commercial real estate firm handling the sale. The sale also includes the hotel’s sister property, La Playa Hotel and Cottages-by-the-Sea in Carmel. The hotels are up for sale as assets of Nob Hill Properties Inc., which owns them and is being offered for sale.

The Huntington, at 1075 California Ave., bears the name of one of the early Big Four railroad barons of California. It was built in 1924 on the same promontory where C.P. Huntington and his cohorts built their mansions in the late 1800s.

The Huntington was operated as a luxury apartment building, according to the hotel’s website, until developer Eugene Fritz turned it into an elegant hotel in the mid 1940s, retaining the spacious size of the apartments for guest rooms. Its his grandchildren, owners of the Huntington and the Carmel site under the name Nob Hill Properties Inc., who are selling.

 

“These are generational hotels that have not been available to investors for more than 50 years,” Michael Leggett of the real estate firm Holiday Fenoglio Fowler said in the news release. “… The Huntington Hotel, constructed in 1924, has been significantly renovated throughout the years and has never been offered for sale.”

The Huntington has 136 guest rooms and suites, plus the Nob Hill Spa and Big 4 Restaurant. La Playa Hotel and Cottages-by-the-Sea is a historic resort just two blocks from the sea in Carmel.
