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. Each room comes standard with a flat-screen television, granite-countertop bathrooms, spacious work desks and plush bedding. Members of the property's Lobby Club receive complimentary room upgrades, late check-out and daily food and beverage presentations. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply).

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. Since then it has been a favorite spot for many of San Francisco's rich and famous. The menu is eclectic; a drink list boasts 100 different martinis.

Valet and self parking are available (fees apply).

Dining

Acquerello
Tip: With elegant surroundings and excellent service, Acquerello is a real local gem. Be sure to meet GianCarlo, the owner. An upscale classic Italian restaurant. The look is spare, with gleaming silver and delicate crystal glasses contrasting with the b
Venticello
Tip: Ideal for a romantic dinner, Venticello will spoil you with its remarkable fare and friendly service. A roaring fireplace, cable cars passing by outside and great views of the bay make this intimate northern Italian restaurant the quintessential San
Asia SF
Tip: Slightly risque but a fantastic place with outrageous entertainment, tasty food and sweet cocktails. 'Gender illusionists' will serve you exotic cocktails and delicious food in a party atmosphere.
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.

Weekend in San Fran

We were in town for a wedding at the Fairmont. Stayed at the Mark because it was less expensive and right across the street. The room was very comfortable but a little noisy, we were on the Fairmont side of the building and above the cable car line on California Street. (fifth floor) I would recommend the upgrade to the view suite, my daughter and son-in-law did this and did not have the noise and had a beautiful view of downtown and the Bay Bridge. I had booked the Deluxe King Suite instead of the standard because they were on the higher floors and I was hoping farther away from the noise, so I knew that noise could be a problem. Be sure to go to the Top of the Mark and have a drink. Good band and dancing and the view is not to be missed.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Be sure to visit Tadich's Grill. It is about a 5 block walk down the hill toward downtown, they do not take reservations so you will have to wait in line. Absolutely wonderful meal! My husband had the Cioppino and the seafood was cooked to perfection, I had the Crab Cakes and they were melt in your mouth delicious. My son-in-law had the pork chops and they were gone from his plate in no time, my daughter had the Chopped Steak (we call it a Cowboy Steak at home), this was delicious with the Mushrooms and sauce. One of the best tastes of beef that I have had in a long time. Great experience! The walk back to the hotel was all up hill, so if you want a work out after that tasty meal have at it, we caught a Cable Car to the top!

Good hotel, but subpar concierge service.

The room was very clean and comfortable, the price was reasonable; but some staff at the concierge desk could be a lot more helpful for a 4 star hotel. The funny thing is that this person in particular has some accent of her own; yet, she was not very patient or friendly to a guest in my group who can speak pretty fluent English but with a fairly heavy Chinese accent.

SF's Finest

Not only is this a landmark in and of itself, but the service and the rooms are incredible. I have rarely met such a personable and knowledgeable staff. Don't forget to have drinks at the Top of the Mark!

excellent!!!!

Perfect location. Walking distance to union square. Plenty of restaurants and bars around. Easy to get to all attractions in San Francisco....staff was so accommodating. The entire hotel including the rooms were in great condition. Had an old feel but very updated. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Everything about this hotel was 5 star! The service, the room, and the Top of the Mark! We even liked our experience at the Nob Hill Cafe. We will definitely be back!
