Love the Mark Hopkins - I stayed there recently as I am taking a conference group to San Fran in April 09. It was a wonderful hotel with staff that went the extra mile to accommodate your needs. The bonus use of a Town Car (which the hotel offers free - just tip the driver what you think is fair) was great you may have to wait 15 mins but worth the wait when you driver is "Dave". Who offered great insights into San Fran and was friendly and loved relaying stories on famous guests he had driven (no bad stories just nice ones). The Cocktail bar was the best... cocktails were very cheap (compared to a bar very similar in Sydney Australia) and the service was great too - asked for a cocktail that wasn't on the list and they were happy to make to my specifications (mind you there was 100 cocktails to choose from). The bar snacks were reasonable as well and I can recommend the Corn Chips and dips (fresh, flavoursome and plenty of it).. Hotel in prime location (although recommend you walk down the hills but catch tram or bus back up).
Its not a cheap hotel but the benefits are worth it....
Love San Fran and love the Mark Hopkins...More
