We consider QCD corrections to Higgs boson production through gluon-gluon fusion in hadron collisions. We compute the cross section, performing the all-order resum- mation of multiple soft-gluon emission at next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic level. Known fixed-order results (up to next-to-next-to-leading order) are consistently included in our cal- culation. We give phenomenological predictions for Higgs boson production at the Tevatron and at the LHC. We estimate the residual theoretical uncertainty from perturbative QCD contributions. We also quantify the differences obtained by using the presently available sets of parton distributions.
