"Location isn't great, service is excellent."
I stayed for a week at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins for a convention. Unfortunately, being at the top of Nob Hill made for a not-very-walkable location, particularly with a convention that was down the hill at the convention center. During my stay, I got quite ill, and the staff at the hotel were extremely helpful. I was impressed with what the hotel staff did to help, and for a guest who is planning to drive everywhere to begin with, the hotel may be perfect.
This luxury hotel is close to shopping , dining and site seeing areas. You can walk to the fisherman's wharf . The room is spacious and the fitness room has a lot of equipment to work with and better compared to other hotels. My room was on the 2nd floor with no view
"Lovely hotel in great location"
My stay at this hotel was quite pleasant. This hotel has a lovely historical feel. The location is excellent for walking around the city or even a longer hike down to the pier (30+ minutes I believe). The staff was very helpful throughout my visit. The views of the city, especially from the top of the hotel were impressive. My room was a good size and very clean. I appreciated the cleanliness of the bathroom but would also have appreciated some updates as the sink area was small with only a narrow glass shelf for toiletries. I also would have appreciated easier access to outlets in the room. Charging electronics was somewhat inconvenient as there were no outlets on the nightstands, necessitating use of the desk. Overall, I had a very good stay and would return.
"Room with a gorgeous view."
I stayed here for a week. They were nice enough to put us in a corner room that came with sweeping views of the bay and the city. The room and bathroom were both larger then the average hotel. The valet is convenient and the service was impeccable. my only complaint was the location. It's at the very top of Nob Hill which made driving a little more stressful then I prefer. It also made walking around exhausting. Just know what you are getting and be prepared!
Before our stay we read several reviews about the Mark Hopkins "showing its age" or being "tired". Nothing could be further from the truth. You either like vintage hotels or you don't. This one is a real gem. There is nothing "tired" about a beautiful room with a stunning hilltop view of San Francisco combined with impeccable service in an elegant and sophisticated setting. We'll take that EVERY time. The location simply can't be beat. There are 2 cable car lines a block away. The view is simply epic. The service was flawless. The food and service in the restaurants was 5 star. Rooms were historic, clean and absolutely beautiful. The work out room was very well equipped. If the history and class of this hotel is what some call showing age then by all means, LET IT SHINE!
