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.

We usually stay at the Mark Hopkins arround St Patricks Day every year and always enjoy the stay. Nice rooms with all the amenities and good WiFi. Really friendly staff as usual this year but sadly I was not as impressed with the overall experience as i have been in the past. The hotel has a lovely solid traditional feel about it but I think it needs to be freshened up a bit. A number of years ago they stopped the amazing buffet breakfast in the famous Top of The Mark Restaurant and moved it to the ground floor location. That was fine. But this year there was no buffet at all and it was replaced by an Al le Carte offering. It was explained that because of the low occupancy due to the Coronavirus they could not justify the buffet. Fair enough, but the alternative was just too expensive. I was even more dipleased when I was charged extra for tea and again for refills. Since tea and coffee would have been freely available with the buffet, I think to offer it, coffee and juice as included in the breakfast price in the circumstances would have been nice.

We were hoping for something with character, style and a sense of history. Mark Hopkins doesnt disappoint. This is no bland, sterile block of concrete. This takes you back to a time when things were done right, when pleasure was in the detail and corners weren't cut. The location is perfect; you feel like you're on top of the world, particularly when you're in the bar on the top floor looking down onto the bay. Tram rides just over the road, the Wharf a short ride away, centre of town likewise. Yes, if you look really hard you'll find some areas where the varnish has cracked or the beech panelling has split, but, come on, this is a living, breathing building that's survived alot longer than you or I will. The rooms are spotless, service efficient and friendly, staff polite and helpful. Take a while to research Mark Hopkins. He was one of the great industrialists alongside Huntingdon, Stanford, etc. and it was their likes that made the West what it is today. And he gave us this memorable monument to enjoy. Thank you, Mark.

Stayed a couple of times 2018/19 for 3 nights each . Famous Hotel from a slightly bygone era.Wonderful location at top of hill between Union sq and Fishermans wharf.Grand moderately sized frontage. The Bad -------------- Not much really,a bit dated and in need of some refurbishment.Can be noisy near the lifts which can be clearly heard in the room,but did not impact the enjoyment of my stay. The Good ---------------- Classic old building,been in a few movies like original Bullitt etc.Central to everything ,2 min taxi to Union sq,15 min Tram ( nearby) to Fishermans Wharf.Efficient check in .Big rooms/ high ceilings by todays standards,not too soft bed which I like.Very helpful friendly doormen/ bellmen,good on demand limo ride to anywhere Rates can be decent ( $200 ish ) depending on date,I paid $330 ish I think. Has a famous bar at the top of the building with good views of City,was not to my taste but was otherwise extremely popular. I enjoyed my stays.

We visited the City January 24th, thru the 26th celebrating our grandson's becoming a teenager, staying at the Mark Hopkins and seeing "Harry Potter" at the Curran Theatre and eating at Scoma's, on the Wharf. The Mark Hopkins is perfectly situated in the center of the city, in walking distance to Union Square, the theaters, Chinatown, Market Street and even the Wharf if you're venturous enough with strong legs. Absolute great location and Mark Hopkins couldn't be a more grandiose/elegant setting to impart a bit of culture and history. He was even allowed at the Top of the Mark and given a piece of chocolate cake with candles for desert. The hotel rooms were fantastic on the Club Floor, the front desk service impeccable and their breakfast was equally good. We love the place, stay there when ever in the City and recommend it to anyone wanting to make an impression. We certainly did and thank those at the Mark Hopkins for making it possible.
