Staying with friends & their husbands right across the street, we decided to go to the top of the Mark for drinks. Pricey, of course, but expected! Great service-great views of the city-with the bay & Alcatraz in the distance. One has to do it when visiting this city! Cumin salty nuts were great!

We stopped here after dinner at the Tonga Room at the Fairmont~ across the street~ for a nightcap. Raves to have the best view of the city. The fog was thick so I can't comment on that. The club is really lovely. Fancy drinks and all standards. Prices a bit high but you are paying for the view (on a... More

We are staying in this hotel and this was one of the first places we went once unpacked. It was a great place to start! Relaxing atmosphere with amazing views. Great cocktail menu too. Highly recommend!

Beautiful views of the city! If you go on Friday or Saturday expect to wait for about 20 minutes. Extensive martini list plus beer and wine. There is also a food menu if you need a snack with your cocktail

We both love to dance, so we decided to check out the Motown night this past Thursday. Beautiful views, a great band and a wonderful time- we'll be back!

Excellent views from this 360 degree vantage point at the Top of the Mark at the Intercontinental Hotel! This bar-lounge has tables throughout and patrons are generally agreeable to others sliding between tables to take some photos of the San Francisco skyline. We went just before sunset and caught some great photos of the sun setting past the Golden Gate... More

Having walked up the Nob and got to the top, the maître d just turned and said 'no shorts'. Not even an ' I'm sorry sir, no shorts allowed'. Rude

We stayed on the 11th floor and the room was excellent along with the staff. Unfortunately we had fog for the entire time we were there so the veiw was very limited, but the hotel made up for it. It's position is great ideally placed to visit the city by foot or public transport. But be prepared it's hilly!

Nice bar. Good layout. Staff were nice. Olives weren't great but the view and the drinks were lovely. I think the pianist was having an off day. Otherwise it was a great experience.

We arrived here at 5.30 just as it opened after spending a jam packed day walking around the city. We were pretty tired and I did feel a little conscious about my dress but I need not have worried they were very welcoming and the service was quick and efficient. The had a fantastic array of Martinis to chose from... More
