Asian people(if you are yellow) choose it carefully! Most of staffs would just ignore you rudely and treated other white people courtly!. We are very offensive by such discriminative attitude. I am the member of IHG, and me and my girlfriend(she is also a Chinese like me) staying in this hotel for 4 nights. In the first day when we... More

I've stayed at the mark Hopkins many times over the last few years. It is a magical old hotel with an amazing history situated in a wonderful part off San Francisco Nobb hill. The views are amazing and the top of the mark situated on the top floor has panoramic views of all of San Francisco and great cocktails and... More

Stayed there for a few nights. The room was spacious and comfortable and the view of San Francisco from Nob Hill is absolutely breathtaking, especially at night. The Concierge is very helpful for booking tours and restaurants. The downside is that you need a cab to get here from most places, if you don't want to climb 50 degrees gradient... More

Location, Location, location!!! We originally booked a different hotel/different location simply because it was less expensive, but after reading a lot of Trip Advisor reviews, thanks to all who share, we chose to be a guest here. In wanting to experience SFO, we wanted a great location, historical beauty/ heritage, and this property has it all.This hotel is beautifully located... More

Such a perfect location, on top of Nob Hill with the best view of the city and beyond. We loved being next to the cable car intersection and within walking distance to Chinatown and Union Square. The hotel is elegant and stylish and our room was super-comfortable - loved the tall ceilings!! We enjoyed learning about the history of Nob... More

The Mark Hopkins is everything an iconic grand dame hotel should be—excellent location, historic past, faithful to the original design, and most importantly, a front office staff with longevity and an innate sense of hospitality. If you enjoy the many touches of an older hotel’s ambiance, then a stay here is a must during one’s lifetime. On the other hand,... More

I am late with this review. A year late. I stayed there in October of 2013. We stayed in a Junior suite for 5 nights. The staff, the concierge and everything was great. I made my reservations on the phone and talked about the room with the Ambassador staff. I travel to San Francisco yearly and stay on Nob Hill... More

Stayed here for business. Very classic hotel. Room was on 9th floor with nice view of city but woken up by garbage trucks at 530-6am. Breakfast buffet was great with a lot of options but didn't expect the $30/per person cost. Close to Union Square - on steep hills so expect a work out when walking back. Hotel staff very... More

I loved this hotel!! The lobby was beautiful with old world luxury.. Check in was fast and friendly. Our room was very comfortable. The maid service was done very quickly while we dined on the outstanding full buffet breakfast down stairs. Our waiter knew our drink orders on the second day! The " On the Mark" bar on the top...

It's been year since my last stay and was looking forward to visiting an "old friend" and true to form nothing really has changed. It's still the "top of the hill" well trained friendly staff who equal many European hoteliers. Rooms are the same but have been updated and refreshed. Well kept, clean while retaining that old world charm. Public... 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.
