"Very nice hotel with typical nice hotel prices!"
I spent 2 nights here attending a conference. The hotel is very nice and my room was a good size with all the expected ammenities. Being a member of the hotel's frequent stayer program, I got free WiFi which was nice. The parking charge is crazy high, but it is on par with other upscale hotels in the same area. The breakfast buffet was nice but $35' That was a bit out of my price range. There are restaurants within walking distance and the trollys stop near the hotel (walking down the hill is much easier than walking up!). The gym was nice -- pretty standard with treadmills, elliptical machines, etc. the staff was very friendly & very helpful with recommendations.
The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was how expensive the parking was, however I think that is just a San Francisco thing as parking appeared to be pricey everywhere so I don't hold that against this lovely hotel. We loved our stay here, the hotel decor is a wee bit dated but it kind of suits the building. We had a lovely room looking down the hill toward the water, great view and a nice, spacious room with a very comfy bed. The hotel was quiet and the sleep quality very good. Excellent selection of cable channels, great little coffee maker in the room and all of the amenities you expect from an InterContinental. The Mark Hopkins enjoys lovely views as it is perched upon Nob Hill, but this means that to get back to the hotel you do have to walk up the hill - so be prepared for some exercise! It's only a few blocks to Union Square (maybe a 7-10 minute walk), very close to China Town and there are plenty of cafes etc within a five minute walk. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the Concierge made some great dinner recommendations. The lovely German lady who checked us out literally couldn't have been friendlier. Have a drink up in the Top of the Mark bar at sunset - amazing views of the SF area and the longest list of martinis I have ever seen. Great stay, would definitely go back.
"Great central location with friendly staff!"
Great location, great rooms. Top of the Mark bar is a lovely bar to get some amazing views. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel, however be warned about the wifi. We got caught out at $15 per day when we checked out.
I stayed here during Thanksgiving, 2013. The price was fabulous for a hotel of this quality during that time of year. The hotel is lovely, the staff very nice, and the location is great. My room was spacious and very comfortable. The only problem I encountered was when I asked the concierge where a certain restaurant was located. He sent me all over the place (up and down the steep hills). When I finally found the restaurant I realized I could have simply walked straight a few blocks instead of all over Nob Hill!!!!! Next time I will call any restaurants direct to get directions. Taking this into consideration I would definitely stay here again.
We stayed here for 3 nights checking in on 13th September. First things first, this hotel is absolutely beautiful and we had no problem with our room on the 6th floor but I found the staff so unfriendly and cold that I would never return. We were acknowledged when we checked in to the hotel at the front desk but that was the only time our existence in the hotel was for the whole 3 days until we checked out when I was asked how my stay was. For a hotel of this caliber to have staff not even make eye contact with you when you walk through the lobby or outside the hotel is appalling. I have never stayed in such a stuck up hotel ever and I would never return. No free wifi even in the lobby, this is 2014 do people really want to pay $15 a day just to send a couple of emails home to England. If you are a business traveller in a suit you will be fine but if you are a tourist in shorts and tee shirt with my experience you will be treated like a 2nd class citizen
