This Unique Collaboration Offers an Alternative Convention Center with Hotel Accommodations and Meeting Spaces all within Walking Distance of Each Other

SAN FRANCISCO, June 17, 2015 — Five of San Francisco’s finest luxury hotels – the InterContinental Mark Hopkins, Fairmont San Francisco, Stanford Court, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco and The Scarlet Huntington have come together in conjunction with The Masonic to form the Nob Hill Connection. This unique partnership offers meeting planners the opportunity to seamlessly plan meetings and conventions in one of America’s most celebrated and breathtaking neighborhoods with the best services and amenities of each establishment.

The partnership offers a unique alternative to other convention locations while still providing all the resources needed for any size event. With accommodations for more than 1,000 visitors and 100,000 square feet of meeting space, the Nob Hill Connection offers a one-stop-shop for planning meetings and events as a mini convention center in the historic and picturesque Nob Hill neighborhood.

Dubbed the “hill of palaces” by Robert Louis Stevenson, Nob Hill was where California’s famous railroad tycoons – Charles Crocker, Collis P. Huntington, Leland Stanford, and Mark Hopkins built their magnificent mansions. In the 1870’s, Nob Hill was the focus of business and cultural life in the burgeoning city. Protected by steep slopes and even steeper property values, its powerful residents could safely survey the excitement of the bustling city below. Today, the neighborhood is the setting for five luxury hotels that showcase spectacular views of the city.

Recognized by both discerning business and leisure travelers alike for distinctive architecture, superb service and exceptional amenities, these hotels take pride in providing travelers with a remarkable experience. Rounding out the partnership, the magnificent Masonic offers flexible meeting and exhibition space with convenient and excellent support services.
