Skyline views offered from popular on-site restaurant, Top of the Mark
Interiors need updating, according to recent visitors
Named after one of the big players that helped form the Central Pacific Railroad, this hotel was bought by InterContinental in 1973. Despite its history, some say the hotel lost a bit of its character, with the decor looking more dated than charming. Still, many enjoy this Nob Hill hotel and the great views of San Francisco from its in-house restaurant, Top of the Mark. Not to be confused with its sister property, the InterContinental San Francisco, this hotel is especially popular among business travelers, who can use the multiple meeting rooms and take advantage of the property's business center and high-speed internet connection. Leisure travelers will appreciate the hotel's proximity to popular San Fran neighborhoods like Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown, as well as the city's famed cable cars. The InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco also offers pillow menus and Keurig coffee makers in all of its rooms and an on-site fitness center. Plus, members of the IHG Rewards Club program can use or accrue points for choosing to stay here.

Critic Reviews



The hotel oozes with history, from the nearly century-old mural in the Room of the Dons, to the mini-museum off the lobby and the art installations by local Academy of Art students.


One of the city's grandest dames, the Mark Hopkins sits regally on top of Nob Hill with dazzling views and the famous 19th-floor Top of the Mark bar. Though its elegant style and grand past earn cachet, in substance, this hotel is less impressive (and usually less expensive) than its Nob Hill neighbors



The lobby is part French chateau, part Italian renaissance with high ceilings, light-drenched sitting areas, and ornate chandeliers. The rooms and suites, all with city views, feature rich woods and fine fabrics, though they are on the smaller side thanks to the Victorian architecture style.
