Quite disappointed overall with this hotel. It certainly is not a good representation of an Intercontinetal Hotel. Rooms are drab, awful colours and terrible cheap tacky bedspreads and curtains that would not even close properly so the light will come into the room in the mornings and wake you. Small adequate bathrooms shower not the best! Breakfast is Buffet only... More

We spent a week at Mark Hopkins Hotel at the end of February and really enjoyed our stay. Its an old hotel with all the character that goes along with a hotel built in a different era. The walls are thin, the rooms a bit small, no ventilation in the bathroom but the place exudes history. The staff were friendly,... More

My husband and I spent a few days of our honeymoon at the Mark Hopkins. The hotel itself is impressive and the staff helpful, but the room we were in was pretty bad. It lookes like it hadn't been renovated in quite a while. The location of the Mark Hopkins is also bad if you're spending most of your time... More

This hotel is nothing special. It's reviews and reputation are based more on tradition than reality. On arrival, we noticed the professionalism and courtesy of the doormen and concierge. Unfortunately, the lobby and the guest rooms are not impressive. The sheets and bedding were of very poor quality, and the housekeeping staff tucks in the top sheet tightly with the... More

This hotel is very average and does not deserve its reputation. There is hardly a lobby to speak of and there is a non-existent atmosphere. The rooms are DRAB, the sheets are of poor quality and the bedspread was a polyester blend. The whole place reads TIRED. Also, the walls are paper thin. The "nominal" fee (the word they use)... More

The Mark Hopkins, at the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, is a good hotel with spectacular views. They're even better at the Top of the Mark bar, though we didn't go there. We might have gone, but the champagne brunch was $59--that's right five nine--dollars per person. That price reflects an unseemly emphasis on cash extraction at the... More

We went for our 7th wedding anniversary. I booked hotel and flight and that was the end of planning this time around. Who knew the hotel would be highlight of the trip.

This is a gem of a hotel in a gem of a city. Atop Nob Hill, with excellent views of all that makes San Francisco so wonderful. A short walk to China Town, the Financial District and Union Square. The rooms have an old world charm that's hard to match. The Top of the Mark is a truly unique restaurant.... More

I loved my stay at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel! The room and amenities were great! The club lounge was excellent! The location was great! The staff was excellent! It was my mini home away from home for a week. Although, it's at the top of the hill in Nob Hill, that walk up the hill on Mason and California... More

HISTORIC GRANDEUR ON THE CREST OF NOB HILL As splendid now as when it opened to great fanfare in 1926, InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco is one of the city’s finest hotels. Located at the crossing of three cable car lines, the venerable landmark is minutes from Union Square, Chinatown, and the Financial District. Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge are short drives away. ... more   less
