Just a reminder, please make your reservations for 2008 now if you already have not done so. We do not automatically rent your unit for you, nor do we make any kind of reservations for you unless you call and instruct us to do so. If you fail to make your reservations we will not compensate you for the loss of your Use time. And there is no accrual or carry over of Use time to the following year. If you decide to Exchange your Use week through any of the existing Exchange companies, it is your responsibility to deposit your week in a timely manner. We do not deposit the Use week on the owners behalf. If you would like to change the status of your reservation from Owner Use to Exchange, you must notify the Inn before calling your Exchange Company. We are taking reservations for 2008. As you know the owners can always make reservations for their Use week 365 days in advance.
Owners can upgrade to a larger unit only TEN DAYS in advance of their check-in date, provided space is available. There will be an upgrade fee charged. The upgrade fee is the difference between the Bonus time rate of the kind of unit the owner owns and the Bonus time rate of the larger unit.
As part of VRI, we are happy to accommodate exchange guests.
The Nob Hill Inn is different from most timeshare resorts, and we would appreciate your taking the time to read the following information before you arrive.
And of course, you can always call us with any questions or concerns you may have.
As with other timeshare resorts in San Francisco, the Nob Hill Inn was built around the turn of the last century as a private home. It is much smaller than most "purpose built" timeshare units. Because there is so little availability in San Francisco for timesharing, only those of you with top-of-the-line teimshare properties are even considered for exhanging into San Francisco. However, do not expect the same sort of facilities at any of the San Francisco resorts that you have at your "home" resort. These properties are right downtown, where there are only a few inches between buildings. They have no "grounds" or recreational facilities. The street is only six feet from the building, so you can expect to hear city noises — traffic, sirens, car alarms, people talking — right outside your window, 24 hours a day. (If noise bothers you, you might want to bring earplugs for sleeping, as we have no control over the sound level of The City!)
And if all of this sounds a bit frustrating, keep in mind that narrow, winding streets, interesting people and beautiful (if crowded) buildings are all part of the charm of San Francisco!
Lastly, if you have already finalized your exchange plans, we urge you to check your confirmation slip against the information contained in this site or in the brochures you were sent. It is important that you know the type of unit you have been assigned, and how many people that unit will accommodate. If you have any problems, please contact your exchange company immediately. The following rules apply to all exchange guests, without exception:
Unit assignments may not be changed once you have arrived. This is why we ask that you check your confirmation for the unit type you have been assigned, and then check the "About the Inn" area of this site to determine if the unit type will work for you — before you arrive.
You must not arrive with more people than your unit allows. Again, please check the "About the Inn" area of this site, and make special note of the number of people allowed in each type of unit. You will not be checked in if you arrive with more than the allowed number of people.
The Nob Hill Inn is a non-smoking property. In fact, most buildings in San Francisco do not allow smoking, including most restaurants and bars. This is due to our strict labor laws, which are in place to protect the employees from constantly being exposed to second-hand smoke on the job site.
We appreciate your cooperation in these matters, and hope that you will contact us with any questions you may have. Someone is on duty at the Nob Hill Inn 24 hours a day to assist you.
