The classic facade is in harmony with the opulent interior that includes vintage furniture, crystal chandeliers, marble floors, fresco paintings and other dazzling features. Since 1939, the Top of The Mark lounge on the 19th floor has been a popular luxury setting for sipping cocktails and socializing. The property's historic significance is officially recognized by the California State Park Commission and the Historic Hotels of America.

overdue for a makeover

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 3, 2016
This is undoubtedly a very well placed hotel - right in the middle of downtown with easy access to Union Square, North Beach etc. Other positive points were that the bed were very comfortable and they have very nice goose down pillows. However, this hotel is long overdue for a refurbishment. It makes great play of its history, but if action is not taken soon, it runs the risk of becoming yet another tatty and outdated hotel. The lobby area is furnished with a variety of non matching and shabby sofas that are ready for the charity shop. It was cold during our stay and the lobby is draughty and unheated. There is no lobby bar or area for a coffee. The Top of the Mark is also a huge disappointment - it is on top of the building and therefore has good views, but that is about all you can say in its favour - yet more thrift shop furniture and utterly bland decor, no bar area, yet people queue for hours for the privilege of getting in. And there is another problem, there are only 3 lifts for the whole hotel and two of them serve both the rooms and the Top of the Mark. At busy times it took us over 20 minutes to get from our room to the lobby - there is one lift that is for rooms only, but the punters all know this and try to 'cheat' the queueing system by getting that lift to a high floor and then catching the other lift to the bar at the top. It's frankly a complete pain for guests. The breakfast buffet was nothing special, but very expensive. So all in all I'd try somewhere else in the future.

We love the feel of a Grand Hotel and the Mark Hopkins delivers every time. The rooms are comfortable and elegant and the location on top of Nob Hill makes it easy to get around San Francisco.

weekend escape

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 12, 2015
This has a classic hotel that we've wanted to check out. We really enjoyed our weekend here. The room was clean, very quiet, great view of the city, prompt room, neutrogena toiletries, very helpful staff, check-in/out were swift. The valet parking at $62 (plus tax/tip) per night was steep. Parking garages available nearby for self park if you don't want the hotel parking. The quality of the meal (room service) was less than average and pricey. The tiny portion of icecream (comparable to 1/3 scoop at any icecream parlor) was an absurd $12 w/tax. It would not have been an issue if the icecream was awesome but it was average. While the price point in relation to food quality are not great, the staff here is excellent at every level and really make the hotel experience easy and comfortable.
