InterContinental Mark Hopkins

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms look tired and smell musty. Great views but sad that it has such a prime location and yet it looks like rooms haven't been updated in quite some time.

Fabby. Especially Top of the Mark. Great junior suite. Terrific staff.

Mark Hopkins is a very nice old school style hotel. Close to Chinatown, and downtown. My room was very clean and quiet. I was on the 9th floor with very nice views. I would definitely stay here again. Staff were great. Top of the Mark was fun to gp to and have cocktails and listen to the band.

The hallways and elevators could use a bit of refreshing, but rooms are clean and very comfortable. Best thing about this place is the staff, they are super friendly and will go out of their way to accommodate any requests. Location is also unbeatable. Will definitely stay here again!

Very nice Hotel, about 1 mile from Fisherman's Wharf. Great views from all windows.

Good location and view. Helpful staff. Room did not cool well.

''Twas a fun place - the top of the mark makes the night

Loved my stay, great views (at least I had one of alcatraz (partial since buildings are blocking it from the floor I was on). Quiet, a/c central which was nice. Great mini-bar. Office Desk with plugins for multiple phone, laptop/other items. bed was extremely comfortable. Couldn't be happier. The top of the mark is Okay, I think it needs to be updated. The bar is extremely small, i.e. about 8 seats. Very weird since the place is huge. The views were very nice but not 360 views. more like one side has views, then other side has views. The bar is in the back so it blocks any sort of 180 view. At any rate, I do recommend, possibly not at the high rates they can charge at times.

Very nice hotel. Room was very clean, not big, but nice. My room on the 9th floor had a good view. Hotel was old school, and quiet which i enjoy. Location was great for me. Bed was very comfortable. Would stay again, and recommended it.

For a hotel of this cost, the guest amenities were very limited, on par with a much lesser brand. At night, the only place to have a drink is the Top of the Mark, which operated as a nightclub open to the public, requiring a thirty minute wait. For breakfast, there is only one option, a very expensive and poor quality menu. In the afternoon, you can buy a drink at the Top, but the snacks were poorly selected choices, we chose not to order. We spend more time next door at the Fairmount Hotel, similar price, and what a grand hotel should be.

Wonderful staff in a beautiful building. Food is at a premium, in both locations. It would be nice to have a few more options for breakfast, although the breakfast buffet is very good. There is a club across California street that gets very rowdy 11-2 on weekends. We will keep that in mind next stay!

We had a wonderful stay at the Intercontinental hotel, the rooms were clean and very comfortable with great views of the city. We had drinks at the restaurant on the top floor, views were amazing and the music was also quite enjoyable. We also had the buffet breakfast which was also quite nice.

The hotel is very pretty but needs updates. The room we stayed in was small and smelled like sweat and old man cologne and body odor. It took over 24 hours of keeping windows open and ac running to clear that smell. Otherwise nice hotel

Very old, not what I expected from an Intercontinental hotel. Food was fair, rooms were old, bed was old, bathroom was old. Get the picture! Paid extra, the front counter recommended, dont know why, was like the cheaper rooms!!

Beautiful hotel on Nob Hill. We had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant. Would definitely return there.

Convenient location but lots of hills near hotel. Staff were superb.

We stay at the Mark Hopkins once a year. The hotel is AMAZING! So much history! The staff is impeccable! They treat EVERY guest as if they are the most important guest in the hotel!

The mark is my favorite Hotel in San Francisco. I love staying in your beautifully decorated comfortable rooms.

Met my expectations for old-style grace & elegance! Breakfast buffet just average, small bathrooms

Tired rooms, long elevator waits, fantastic brunch, wonderful views.
