This was one of the best hotels days of my entire life. I was traveling with my five-year-old daughter. I asked for the highest room possible because I had read some reviews about street noise. I don't know what people are talking about in the negative reviews because even with our window open there was virtually no noise. I had... More

Nob Hill has always been one of our favorite areas to stay while in San Francisco. Its spectacular views and “above the fray” feeling make it a special experience. We’ve previously stayed at the Fairmont and the Ritz-Carlton, but the recent overnight was our first time at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel, a lovely Art Deco building opened in 1926....

Overall I had a wonderful experience. I found the staff to be accommodating - although the block of rooms reserved for the marathon has been filled the manager still gave me the marathon rate for my room. My room was clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is beautiful and the views of the bay are even better. There is even... More

This is one of the top Intercons in the US. The property is situated at the peak of Nob Hill and affords one an extremely god view of the city and the bay area. the rates are competitive. This hotel is 1st class and has the old money feel. It's been around since the 20's I'm told. Arriving by car... More

We had a wonderful stay here, thanks so much to Alberto, the fantastic concierge. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, as is the restaurant, The Top of the Mark, with amazing views of San Francisco. Alberto made sure we were well taken care of, provided us with some history and great stories of the hotel, and was extremely kind and hospitable... More

The Intercontinental is a nice hotel. A bit old (mostly experienced in the small bathrooms that could benefit from a refresh), but still very pleasant. Nicely appointed rooms and comfortable beds. Very nice, airy lobby. I did not dine at any of the restaurants, so I can't comment there. However, the real standout feature of the Intercontinental is its great... More

Magnificent views, but its interior in both the common areas and our guest room, while reminiscent of its glory days, appear worn and in need of renovation. The relatively reasonable hotel room rate I believe reflects the tired state of this hotel. The parking fee was $60+/night, which reflects the cost of parking in San Francisco.

This fashionable hotel is aptly located in an area settled by the "nobs" of San Francisco. Though many of the mansions built by those "nobs" have disappeared, this classic continues to welcome its guests with a welcoming staff, nice - though not overly large - rooms, great views and a great location. Named after Mark Hopkins, one of the builders... More

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. We had asked three months ahead for two beds, and was told that they would try. Upon arrival, we were told that they were sold out, and because we were getting a "wedding rate," we were essentially the last priority and got whatever was left. Okay. It may have been a... More

We had a very pleasant experience at this hotel. The staff was always friendly, helpful, and available if we needed them. The location (on top of Nob Hill) was excellent. But boy, is San Francisco hilly?! :) We went downtown, Fisherman's Wharf, etc. every day, and walking back up to the hotel was truly a workout :) We didn't mind... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
