"A Must Stay"
I stay here as often as possible when visiting SF. It is a wonderful location near the cable cars. There are several really good restaurants within walking distance. There is a walking labyrinth at the church across the street, and a small park a short walk. The fantastic doormen, especially Raffy, are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed although drawer space is limited. The bathroom has one sink and a small counter. Not all the rooms are the same though.
"Nob Hill Club "
Most memorable food so far, if you are here take the time to come downstairs and enjoy the Pappardelle Pasta. I looks small but it will fool you and leave you satisfied. Get out of your room and try it! My pic says it all. Done!
"Very nice hotel"
I stayed at the Mark Hopkins for four nights while I attending a conference next door at the Fairmont. Pleasant service, clean, good location, good value. They've done a good job of keeping the hotel up to date, but I admit I wasn't blown away. Still, it met my 5-star bar, though barely (the Fairmont across the street is among the grandest I've ever stepped foot in, so the Mark Hopkins is following a tough act). Water temperature was awkward to control and water pressure could have been better. Room was small, though it was their cheapest option. It was nice to see a sink that stays plugged and drains the way you expect. Check-in and check-out was prompt and courteous. I had a package delivered before I arrived and that was smooth too. I would return to this hotel without question.
I stayed at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins for 3 nights while touring the city. I liked the location since it was near many transportation hubs. The all lines of the famed trolley cars can be boarded within a couple of blocks of the hotel. It was easy to get to Union Square, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, and Pier 39. The hotel is at the top of Nob Hill, one block East of Grace Cathedral. The neighborhood is affluent and felt safe to walk in alone. If you're coming from the airport, I would recommend taking a shuttle rather than the BART since the closest BART station stops at the bottom of a very steep hill. Hauling your luggage up the hill will be challenging and catching a cab, Uber, or Lift will add up to about the same price as the shuttle. The lobby is beautiful. The doormen were helpful with luggage, calling cabs, and providing advice. The front desk staff were exceptional. I needed help in arranging a dinner with reservations on a Sunday night at a place on the West side of town and the concierge was most accommodating. The room was quite comfortable. I stayed on the California Street side and enjoyed hearing the trolley cars ring their bell as they passed by. If you are sound sensitive, you may want to ask for a room away from the street noise. The bathroom was clean and well kept. Housekeeping did a wonderful job each day while I was touring. There is a small safe in the room along with handy robes and slippers. In short, I recommend "The Mark". As a guest, you'll be treated royally.
"Excellent service from every employee!"
Each and every person, from the doorman to the bell hop, to the concierge and the servers in the restaurant and Top of the Mark, was absolutely top notch. Our corner suite provided a beautiful view of the bay and the city. The room was large and comfortable. Our room service breakfast was delicious and served at EXACTLY the time I indicated delivery. We would choose the Mark Hopkins again for any return visit. Well worth the splurge.
