Thanks for the Tip Feb. 2 on the Stanford Court hotel's 20th anniversary special. We had a beautiful $400 corner suite for $129. Got $96 off (two multiplied by 48 years) of our anniversary dinner at Fournou's Oven right in front of the ovens. And San Francisco is fond of seniors. The bus from the airport to downtown was 25 cents and the cable car up Powell was 15 cents. JIM and BECKIE WHEELER Carpenteria

You wouldn't be able to tell them apart from the average well-heeled tourists who frequent San Francisco's two five-star hotels. But the 10 men and women dining on Nob Hill in the Stanford Court's plush Blue Room Friday night--ignoring the television tuned to the World Series--were in fact some of the newest additions to San Francisco's homeless population.

A restaurant fire at the plush Stanford Court Hotel in San Francisco caused evacuation of more than 700 people, many of them wearing furs against a light rain on Nob Hill and carrying half-filled wine glasses. There were no injuries. The fire broke out in a greasy flue in the ground-floor kitchen of Fournou's Ovens, the hotel's main restaurant. Damage was estimated at more than $25,000, officials said. Smoke made its way through the eight-story building, causing the evacuation.

A California investment group will start construction May 15 on an $18-million hotel at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah. The first guests will be greeted during the Christmas holidays this year, according to plans. Rob Morris, development and design consultant for the project, said the 192-room lodge will be located at the base of Bald Eagle Mountain on a ski run and adjacent to the Snow Park Day Lodge.

The books have become more than ornamental accessories. Surprisingly, the Stanhope has evolved into something of a lending library. It's become almost impossible to check into a hotel these days without being confronted by designer soaps, bath gel, shoe mitts, mouthwash, shampoo and, of course, bathrobes. It's estimated that on an average night the Hilton Hotel chain spends more than $250,000 on shower caps, sewing kits and soap.

Today it's grilled bratwurst with sauerkraut, a couple of beers and a piece of Hans Fuegi's marvelous homemade apple strudel. Oh, and a small piece of Swiss cheese pie cadged from a neighbor outside on the deck at the Mid Mountain restaurant, halfway up the mountain at this popular Utah ski resort. As far as I'm concerned far too much in skiing is made of the sport's macho esoteria-- vertical drop, percentage of pitch, depth of untracked powder snow and frequency of challenges.

The 1987 harvest of California wines was rated superb last week at the 13th California Vintners' Barrel Tasting dinner at the Stanford Court Hotel, but all the talk in the hallways was about the potential disaster the industry was facing: drought. During the two intermissions in the lengthy dinner, at which 29 wines were poured, wine makers and grape growers congregated in a side room to sip sparkling water, and one of them said: "I wish I had a few million bottles of this for the vineyard."
