This hotel is in a wonderful location atop Knob Hill on California Street. China Town is close by, as is Union Sq. Indeed you can walk to a great many attractions from here. Broadway area w/ my favorite little bar 'Vesuvio' is easily accessed, as are street trolleys. The hotel is not as glamorous as you might expect from its... More

Given that the Mark Hopkins is practically a San Francisco institution, it feels harsh to give a poor rating, but the hotel disappointed on several counts: - lack of customer orientation: apparently after 6:30am the free coffee and tea in the lobby disappears. After that you have to get it with your breakfast in the dining room (which of course... More

It had been many years since we stayed at this property. We were pretty disapointed with the rooms. The bathrooms had been updayed, but are vey small. All the wood work in the room was pretty beat up and the furnishings were very tired.

Stayed for 2 nights and skipped breakfast and dinner. Room was quite large and we paid @$270 a night. Starbucks / Sears diner is around the corner and down the steep hill - not for the unfit! My group and I had drinks which were very expensive. All in all it was ok - top floor bar had great views.... More

I stayed here for 5 nights with my husband and our 8 month old son. The hotel is lovely and had more updates than I anticipated. However, I found the room (King Sized bed) to be a bit small. The bathroom does not have enough storage space for toiletries for 2 people and certainly not enough space for bottles, baby... More

Stayed at The Mark Hopkins last week. Terrific consistent service. Room was dated. Nickel and domed by $6 water bottles in room and $40 breakfast buffet after service charge and tax with no option for anything less expensive.

My in-laws suggested the Mark Hopkins as they stayed here returning from overseas in the 1950's. It is an elegant hotel perched upon one of the SF hills. The building has been updated to the 21 century. Our room and bathroom was a bit small but expected for SF. The amenities were very nice and the bed and linens superb.... More

My wife and I stayed her on Tuesday March 10, 2015. We have stayed here a number of times before when we visit the area and have never been disappointed. It is an historic hotel and I have a soft spot for it in my heart because my father stayed here when he returned from World War II having served... More

The Mark Hopkins is a elegant high end hotel with wonderful views of San Francisco. The rooms were very comfortable but the staff was excellent with pride in the jobs. The Top of the Mark is a must for all visitors.

I've been spending a weekend in this hotel while travelling for business in the Silicon Valley. The hotel is a historic landmark of San Francisco. Great position on top of Nob Hill, beautiful views of the city. I didn't particularly like my Room, that I found a bit tired. Same for the Skybar called Top of the Mark, that I... 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.
