We came here with four children on our way to a restaurant in Chinatown to get a good view of San Francisco. We half expected to be frowned upon but were greeted warmly on leaving the elevator and shown to a corner table with fantastic...More

What a great place to see the whole city! Good drinks could be better with top shelf vodka, i.e. Stoli Elit :)

This was a highly recommended lounge for the view. Unfortunately, Karl came rolling in and we saw nothing. Of course, this isn't the fault of Top of the Mark. This is an average bar, the service was good but the decor was a bit tired.

The matradee was so kind to allow our family to take a peak even though we weren't staying. A perfect place for adults and relaxation. The entire hotel is fabulous

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

Average is probably about 1$12-$16 for a drink. No cover charge. There is also food to purchase. Go to website top of the mark and look at menu. Enjoy!

We were staying at the hotel so we did not have a cover charge, but there did seem to be a cover charge for non hotel guest.
