Beautiful views of the city at historical, iconic Nob Hill hotel

The Intercontinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco opened in 1926 at the crest of Nob Hill and has been wowing visitors ever since. Visitors flock from all over the city to experience The Top of the Mark, a restaurant and lounge on the 19th floor of the hotel, which showcases breathtaking views of the entire city and bay. The lobby, with its ornate columns and marble accents, is a fitting welcome. Upstairs, rooms are intimate and modern in style and conveniences.

Highlights
  • Dine at Top of the Mark restaurant for views of the city
  • Located at the crest of Nob Hill
  • Relax in restored lobby with touches from yesteryear
Rooms

Accommodations -- 348 rooms and 32 suites -- have crown moldings and other subtle touches that capture the authentic turn-of-the-century feel, yet the rooms boast modern conveniences.

Members of the property's Lobby Club receive complimentary room upgrades, late check-out and daily food and beverage presentations.

Features

The hotel has received numerous awards, including the AAA Four-Diamond Award. It was named for Mark Hopkins, a founder of the Central Pacific Railroad, on whose land the hotel was built.

The property offers complimentary 24-hour access to cardio and free-weight machines in its on-site fitness center, as well as complimentary town car service into the Financial District on weekday mornings.

The real show-stopper at the Mark Hopkins is the Top of the Mark, a restaurant and lounge on the 19th floor. The hotel opened in 1926 and this eatery opened 13 years later, in 1939.

Dining

Bourbon & Branch
Tip; This venue is part of our Speakeasy Package at the hotel. Contact the Concierge team for more details. Bourbon and Branch is a glimpse back on the 1920's and the era of Prohibition. Experience the ambiance of that time in an actual speakeasy.
Farallon
Tip: Enjoy cocktails in the jellyfish lounge. A dazzling downtown underwater themed restaurant.
Fleur de Lys
Tip: If you buy one of chef Hubert Keller's 'Top Chef' cook books he will come out and autograph it for you. Exquisite French restaurant five blocks from the hotel. Decor includes an intimate 'tented' dining room and extensive wine list. The service is f
Fluid
Tip: Enjoy music from SF's top local DJ. Very exclusive but the concierge can get you in. One of a kind ultra cool disco lounge.
Supperclub
Tip: Only one seating available per day, so book early. Concierge can help with reservations. You lie on a bed and dine on your seven course meal while being entertained by jugglers, magicians, singers and fire eaters.
Bix
Tip: Serves up some of the best martinis in town. Supper club atmosphere with live jazz every night.
McCormick and Kuletos
Tip: A short cable car ride on the Hyde Street line. Try the signature crab cakes and oysters. Famous for its view, this is a must. But it can get very busy.
North Beach Restaurant
Tip: Has an amazing 500 bottle wine cellar, ranked as one of the best in the city. The 31 year old restaurant, located in the heart of 'little Italy', serves homemade pasta and fresh fish.
Tadich Grill
Tip: Very popular for its local seafood. They do not take reservations but it is definitely worth the wait. Established in 1849 during the gold rush, it's one of the oldest surviving restaurants in the country.
Top of the Mark
Just when you think you’ve seen the best of San Francisco’s sights, the Top of the Mark will thrill you all over again. The legendary sky lounge lays the city at your feet with near-360 degree vistas that showcase the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf

Fabulous Historic Hotel

An incredible hotel at the top of world famous Nob Hill. Immaculate rooms, extremely helpful concierge & doorman arranged our rental car, Giants game tickets,theater tickets,& take-out from a small local eatery. Also saw them arrange a massage for someone who had just arrived with a bad neck & shoulder. The masseuse quickly arrived at the hotel with her massage table that evening.The location was fantastic! It was centrally located to everything. Grace Cathedral was across the street,Union Sq was just down the hill, Chinatown a few blocks the other way, a cable car went by in front & down on the corner so you had access in two directions, the corner cable car went straight to Fisherman's Wharf, the streetcar also stopped right on the corner. The maid service was extremely good. Top of the Mark offered free entertainment & views to us each night, too. Many town people come there for drinks and have to pay a cover chg, but hotel guests do not pay the cover chg. the workout room was fantastic & state of the art equipment. It was an extremely safe area as well. It was a wonderful hotel & experience!! Couldn't have been better!

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

In a booth in the park area of Union Sq, half price theater tickets can be bought. Another hint: The doorman or concierge can give you a menu for 2 very inexpensive ($5-$10) restaurants nearby that will deliver. If you have been out all day, get back, & are tired, just ask the doorman & he'll show you a menu for takeout (salads, pizza, sandwiches, & more). We did not know this until late on the last night, but we would have definitely used it several nights had we known about it earlier.

3rd visit to San Francisco

My husband and I just got married January 22nd and thought of no other place to go than to San Francisco for our honeymoon! This was our 3rd stay at Mark Hopkins and every stay is just like the first! The staff is friendly, helpful and very welcoming. We were amazed at the view from our room and it made for a perfect honeymoon suite! Thanks for a memorable visit, we will most certainly be back soon to stay again!

Feb. Vacation!

Traveled with my three sons, ages 10, 11 and 16 for Feb. vacation. I had one room and the three of them were across the hall in a room with a cot. The cot was nicely made up and housekeeping was very friendly considering... The hotel is beautiful as always and the staff is great. However, be aware that there is no "little store" in the lobby for incidentals and Walgreens is a trek d-o-w-n 3 very steep blocks. That is the only downfall I encountered with this wonderful hotel.
