“Fabulous Nob Hill SF weekend”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Mark Hopkins in January. It is a beautiful hotel with a very helpful staff. The location is the absolute best because it is easy to get all around the city. The cable car runs right by the hotel, but it is a short walk to Union Square, China Town, North Beach, etc. Walking up the steep hills back to the hotel could be an issue for some, but we loved it.

“Better than its downtown cousin”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Having stayed at the Howard Street Intercontinental, it was my intention to return. Bizarrely, it was $100 more expensive that the Mark Hopkins so a no-brainer - save money, better location.

Service was impeccable, being Gold Ambassador I got an upgrade to a suite so I was very happy.

Beautiful historic hotel, perfect for Chinatown or downtown - but the walk back is bracing. Take a cab or the cable car........

“Revisit an Historic Landmark”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

"The Mark" is clearly rebuilding itself and its services; a long overdue comeback for this classic landmark. Rooms are a tad old-school, but not worn. The decor, service, amenities and je-ne-sais-quois (attitude) that make a good hotel into a great hotel are returning. The views from many of the rooms are stunning. You can feel the history of The West, California, and SF when you walk these halls.

There isn't one thing that we didn't like in our 6 days and 5 nights. Just a wonderful- classy Hotel.

“Quality hotel but service needs improving.”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stayed at the Mark Hopkins on two separate visits in Oct/Nov. The checkin process on both visits was very efficient. Room was excellent and we were upgraded to a higher floor on our second visit. On our first visit the fridge was not working but another one was provided when we contacted the front desk. Breakfast at the Top of the Mark was excellent but very expensive. $75 for one Light Beginning Buffet and a Mark Hopkins Buffet. After reading a previous review here I am fairly sure we were overcharged. The Mark was the only hotel we stayed in during our 5 week visit that did not include Wi Fi. When we checked out on a last visit we left a message at the front desk for the porter but no one came up to the room so my husband had to call again.
