Stayed at Intercontinental Mark Hopkins on Nob Hill for one night. This is my third time in the last one year. Check-in was quick, but I usually come in at 10-11pm so there's no queues. I have seen reasonably crowded lobby and queues in the mornings though.
Room is not too big, but good enough for 2 people. Hotel needs a little update, but pretty good overall. Bed/pillow quality was excellent.
The bathroom was pretty big (compared to standard hotel bathrooms in large cities). However, water pressure in the shower was pathetic and the whole system reminded me of 2-star rented apartments.
The location is reasonable in terms of overall context (downtown SFO), but given the hilly nature of this city, I would avoid Nob Hill. This hotel is at the top of a very steep hill, so walking back could be a herculean task. Getting cabs is not so bad from this hotel, but you couold have to wait for 5-10 mins sometimes (unlike hotels on Market Street, where cabs keep flowing).
