My wife and I have been returning guests to the Mark Hopkins Hotel for over a decade. Our annual trip to San Francisco is as much about staying at the Mark Hopkins Hotel as it is visiting the City. This property continues its excellence in every manor. The core of this excellence is the staff.....outstanding! Most of them have decades of service at the hotel. We are warmly and enthusiastically welcomed each time we visit.The hotel is in the process of up-dating some of its facilities. There is a "new" Club area off the lobby. Quite well done. Great relaxed atmosphere and very inviting. Someone told me the hotel is about to undertake a expansive renovation. I am sure it will be outstanding. Right now you will find a very well maintained property.......i find it just fine as it is!!!! Look forward to the "new" effort. This is a great hotel with a great location.

"Style and Location !"
From the moment you got onto the property once the cab climbed up the very steep hill to the very top of Nob Hill, you knew this was a stylish property. The lobby was beautiful with a towering Christmas tree. The room I got was tastefully decked out in a modern American style and overlooked the main road where you could a little bit of the bay. Highlight was the rooftop bar where you can check out the view of SanFran - especially wonderful at night. A comfortable room and I would return.
I stayed at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins as part of a US trip I did for my 30th birthday with family and my best friend. We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is ideally located on Nob Hill so has great views of the City. It's a classically elegant building with the same kind of decor throughout. The staff are courteous and helpful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. They were aware it was my birthday so left me a card and some cake for when I arrived back from my first day exploring San Fran. A lovely touch! I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others! The only downside is WiFi wasn't included in the price.
Mark Hopkins was a really nice hotel, close to the cablecars so that was a bonus. $$ were ok for what you got and the restaurant on top of the building was really cool, you do need to book in advance for this though.
"Business trip to conference "
I needed to get a hotel near downtown for a few meetings around a conference. Intercontinental was available but very pricey. The facilities are overall pretty good. The rooms are showing their age but are very clean and maintained. The roof top restaurant is awesome for a quick meeting or dinner, make sure you get a reservation. When it's clear it's a great view. The fitness center is poor for this scale of hotel , skip that and run the hills next to hotel for a good workout. You can walk to most places but keep in mind that the hills are steep next to this hotel for those needing assistance. If you want to be a little bit out of the main downtown it's a good choice. Free coffee in lobby each morning. I would stay here again.
