The Huntington Hotel , on the crest of Nob Hill, has now opened its own elegant full-service spa—with the same delicious sense that you can arrive and depart in complete privacy. Floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplaces in the treatment rooms, and an indoor pool bordered by celadon mosaic tiles and inlaid with 24-karat gold create calm and luxe in equal abundance. The roster of treatments, inspired by Asian and European health-maintenance traditions, includes a stimulating Longevity Massage, the Vitamin Cocktail Wrap, refreshing Champagne facials, and the Gentleman's Smoothing Skin Facial ($95-$145). Guests can spend a quiet day relaxing, enjoying manicures and pedicures (we recommend the French pedicure: $70), or taking a fitness session with a specialized instructor. The 25-minute Meridian Wash, with a skillfully choreographed Vichy shower, is a wonderful restorative ($65).

For lunch, executive chef Gloria Nehls' salads and light dishes are best enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the city.

Nob Hill Spa at the Huntington, 1075 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94108; 415-345-2888; fax 415-345-2880.
