“"Brunch of the Gods"”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Seated at a table with an expansive view, sparkling wine with orange juice on the side was immediately served - we requested coffee as well and it too, was promptly served. Our server was not overburdened with too many tables to care for so was on top of every napkin fold, silverware change and plate clearance. We began with the Caviar Bar and cracked Dungeness crab legs - (2 passes of those). Carving station with prime rib was next to the egg station. Interesting vegetable and salad preparations, some truffled, were abundant. The dessert station had individual spoons set up with a variety of treats. A great value.

“Pricey but close to everything”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

After many years hubby and I returned to Mark Hopkins. We had stayed here 17 years ago and was impressed with the service. This time we had pre paid our accommodations to ensure a great room with a view and while the room indeed had a view it was pathetically small. We ended up paying more to move to a larger room that at least would accommodate our clothing . The first room offered 2 small drawers and we were staying 5 days! So we moved the the second room one floor down. Views were nice but not great. At least there was a sitting area and 2 dressers. We enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning and it probably saves us a ton of cash as the area is expensive. The staff was accommodating and greeted us by name daily which was a nice surprise. I would most certainly go back but I would be very clear about what size room . The small one is less than the size of a holiday inn!

“Great Location...That's about it...”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Hotel has a great location for catching the trolleys, but that was pretty much the highlight of our stay.

The room we were booked in on the 16th floor must have been close to the elevator machine room, because buzzes, clicks, and booms kept us up all night.

The shower door somehow closed in the wrong way while i was in the shower and I had to give it a pretty big shove to get it back open.

The Top of the Mark is worth visiting, but I get the feeling that it is not the attraction it used to be. Worth stopping in for a drink, that's about it.

The breakfast downstairs and at the Top of the Mark will run about $30 per person. We opted not to eat at either.

All of the staff was very helpful and friendly with directions and dining recommendations.

If/when we return to SF, probably will stay elsewhere close by.
