"Stunning, though a bit pricey"
We stayed at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins for two nights this month, and I must say, it's a stunningly beautiful hotel. The history and charm is unmatched, and the rooms and public areas are all kept up very nicely. The furnishings in the room were comfortable (though the room never got cool enough for my tastes), and the bathroom was luxurious. The service was nice, yet some were a bit impersonal (though the bellmen and valets were all amazing). The Vice President (yes...Joe Biden) was staying here at the same time, so it was a bit chaotic at points, but it just shows how nice of a place it really is. My biggest gripe was a $5 price tag for a tiny bottle of coke. And there wasn't much else close by to get one except for a Walgreens about 6 blocks away. I also loved being RIGHT on the California Street Cable Car Line. It was a perfect location to escape the bustle of the city while still being close to the action.
"Extremely pleasant stay"
i have stayed at Mark Hopkins for the first time and am going to stay here every time I am in town. Checking-in was a pleasure with Aman at the front desk. Concierge team was efficient and hospitable. Over last 6 days it has been like home with every request - major and minor being met with a smile. Caroline and Robert were immensely warm and responsive and warm while organizing room service. house keeping was thorough and all requests were entertained even going that extra mile. My heartiest congratulations to Maarten Drenth for running a beautiful operation. Will love to come back again and again.
Loved this hotel. Being a history buff I enjoyed the history aspect of the hotel. The top of Mark has a glorious view of the city. Be sure to get there before they open. Very limited standing room in the lobby of the Top of the Mark. The rooms in the InterContinental were nice, but needed some updates. I know that they try to keep the history aspect of the rooms the same. But the bed and the fixtures seemed a bit dated.
"Nice hotel but horrible location"
When people described San Francisco to me, I thought they were exaggerating about the steep hills. If you have never been there before, almost the whole city, except for the waterfront, is steep hills. And when I say steep, I mean 45 to 60°. When we were driving I felt like I was on a roller coaster. This hotel is at the top of a very high Hill, hence the name Nob Hill. Anywhere you go from this hotel is down and that means when you want to get back to the hotel you have to climb up. And climbing up even two blocks is exhausting. So while this hotel and the hotel across from it, the Fairmont, are very nice, high-end hotels, I would never stay here again. I would find one of the hotels near the waterfront where everything is flat. Some may say that the trolleys exist in order to carry you up the hills but they are six dollars one way per person. And you dont really want pay six dollars to go up two blocks. The area also just looks like a dirty city. It reminded me of New York City. When you pass by the sewers it stinks, there are homeless people sleeping everywhere, and it just looks dirty and old even though the hotels are nice. Down by the waterfront it looks more like the San Francisco advertised in brochures and on TV. I specifically would stay near the ferry building because of the amazing food selection.
"Pretty Good Overall"
We stayed a weekend in late April. The hotel gets lots of traffic and it has no real lobby area that a guest can use. The location on Nob Hill is very nice with views all over. We were upgraded a room -- good news is that was spacious and comfortable but the bad news that it was a X19 room meaning the column of rooms next to the elevator shaft and very noisy at night (water noise, elevator noise). It did not however have outside traffic noise. We had Club privileges which is a plus -- the food and beverage service is generous. But the Club locks its doors at 8:00 pm which seems too early and leaves you with few options to socialize at the hotel after dinner. Other Club floors at competitors are often open past 10:00 pm.. The bar on top has a blaring band which was jarring. That all being said, I can't say enough good things about the staff -- we had genuinely friendly and helpful service from everyone. The desk told us that the hotel is getting a major remodel which will bring improvements to all facilities.
