3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Given its billing as a "luxury" hotel, I guess I expected a bit more. Our room was perfectly acceptable, clean, a bit small (but we expected that in an older hotel) - but nothing jumped out as "special" for us. The lobby was small and not especially well-appointed. On a busy holiday weekend the 3 elevators were busy and crowded.... More

This must have been a very special hotel in its day. The location is good sitting high on Nob Hill. The staff are very switched on, helpful and professional. The breakfast is very good - full selection catering to a range of tastes and the fruit selection is particularly good. The rooms are a good size and what a pleasure... More

This is probably the 5th time that I have stayed here. I love the location, on the top of Nob Hill. I love to walk and be challenged in doing so-climbing Nob Hill on a daily basis and walking the city is the biggest plus. This hotel I think is the best on Nob Hill. The staff is so nice... More

Grew up in San Francisco, always wanted to stay here and now finally did. This classic hotel lives up to everything I thought it would be. From the moment we pulled our car into the front entrance, the staff has been friendly and attentive to our every need. Our corner room on the 15th floor had a magnificent view of... More

My husband needed to go to SF for a day meeting, The hotel is lovely and gracious and in a great location, but they should upgradess their mattresses. He did not have a good night sleep. And was tired during his meeting

Very welcoming, attentive and friendly staff. Lovely, classic, immaculately presented rooms with a touch of elegance. In my view the best location to stay in San Francisco, you’ve got everything you need nearby and the views (as it’s on top of the hill) from the hotel of the city are truly stunning! It will take you about 20-25 minutes to... More

This is simply a fantastic hotel. Right in the middle of San Francisco. Close to everything. Cable car stops outside. Friendly staff, great service. Top of the Mark has great views and fantastic Martini list. The only negative is that you have to pay for wifi, not great in 2015!

We stayed at the Mark Hopkins for four nights, and were fortunate to have a corner room with a view over the Fairmont and Grace Cathedral. The amenities are excellent, and although it is a gracious old building the mechanical systems are all flawless - it's only a big deal when they don't work! Check-in went very well, and our... More

We stayed four nights around a wedding , for which we travelled from London. Had last been here nearly thirty years ago. Atmosphere still excellent, service outstanding, plumbing and electrical a better. HUGE thanks to great concierge service ( George) in organising side trips, and especially to receptionist ( female, blanked name but on duty on 13th and 16th) who... 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.
