Vacation full of Fun!!!

The hotel is located on top of Nob Hill so you get to have a beautiful view of the city. The only bad thing regarding location is that the hill is quite steep so you'll have to hike up and down just to go shopping or eat. You have the option of using taxi or the cable cars. When making reservation, I recommend getting a room away from the street or you'll hear noise all night. My room was on the 9th floor facing the street and all night you could hear the cable cars. If you don't want a smoking room MAKE SURE YOU REQUEST ONE!!! i didn't make that a requirement during reservation so they placed me on a smoking floor. Once we checked in we could smell smoke throughout the room. They had to ionize the room twice just to get rid of disgusting smell.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Definately get the transportation pass which can be found at a booth next the Gap and Forever 21 stores on the intersection of Powel and Market Street. They have passes for multiple days and will save you in the long run. It covers all your cable car rides, subway, and tram lines.

Great stay

The hotel was first class in cleanliness and overall appearance. The staff were very helpful. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. House keeping staff were most accommodating in every sense.

Great stay at the Mark

Beautiful hotel in a great spot in SF. Close to Union Square but away from the noise. Be prepared for walking up some heavy duty hills.

Lux Stay for a Great Price!

Great location! Lovely old hotel with a lux, first class feel. Pretty lively! Try to book rooms on higher floors since the cable cars running by the hotel can be noisy, but charming! Great value! Bathrooms a bit smallish, but overall the room was very nice!

The Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel

I stayed there back in December on business for one night - I was doing an event in the hotel - which promted me to come back this past week for a vacation. The service and staff were beyond compare. They went the extra mile to make sure their guests are comfortable and well taken care of.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Most attractions are within either a short drive or a longer walk. The MH Hotel is located on top of Nob Hill, on California Ave between Powell and Mason, both of which incredible steep inclines downward. Get your bearings, check Google maps, and have a great time!

A pleasant stay

We got to the hotel early and left our bags and did the Chinatown [three blocks away] visit. The next day we got the all day pass and did the cable car and buses for Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, and Pier 39.All in all a very enjoyable visit. Special kudos to [...] at the hotel who provided both friendly service and helpful information.Go to the Top of the Mark. Dinner is served and in the evening there is live music for dancing. The cover charge is waived for hotel guests. This was one of the nicest parts of our trip.

Go to Ghiradelli Square and treat yourself to a delicious waffle cone ice cream. Do NOT dine at the Franciscan restaurant on the dock. Very pleasant water view; however, the meal was not worth the price. The vegetables were overcooked and the meat I ordered did not taste fresh.

week in San Francisco

amazing experience. From the moment you pull up to the grand entrance to the time you leave. The location couldn't have been better. Short walk to chinatown, warf, union square and best of all, two cable car lines run right in front of the hotel. nothing better than opening your window at night, feeling the cool san francisco breeze and hear the ding of the cable car bell as it rides past your window. It was a very memorable experience. Staff were gracious and knowledgeable. Every request was met quickly and needs were anticipated.

Do make reservations at Hubert Keller's "Fluer de Lys". Amazing restaurant with unbelievable food. Skip "Michael Mina's".. althought the staff was sensational, many of the dishes missed their mark are were off, twice the price of Fluer de Lys and only 1/2 as good.
