An iconic old hotel in a great location. The kind of place you choose for a special occasion visit, right? My wife and I have just spent 4 nites here and this (as I'm writing) is our last. Sure, the rooms are a bit dated (... plastic shower curtains are not really 4-5 stars are they?... ) but the staff... More

There's no doubt that this is a good hotel but in the top 200 I don't think so. Small things make all the difference like when I enquired at reception for an umbrella because it was raining I was told your umbrella is in your room not please take this one sir and simply return it. Also I was surprised... More

This hotel was surprisingly affordable and in a good location. It sits at the top of California street and is close to China town and other local attractions. The room was nice and large for the city. The doormen were very helpful and the front desk staff were extremely nice. Everything about this hotel was great. It is very nice... More

We went here for drink and it was busy. I put my name on the list and was passed over 7 times, I asked the guy if he heard my name wrong because he kept saying something very close to my name he insisted it wasn't me. After the 7th time he was like oh I read your name wrong...really?... More

This is an older landmark Hotel with a really great view of the city from the Top of the Mark restaurant/Bar. The rooms are nice and there's a patina to the furnishings and hotel in general that's not unattractive. Service was excellent and staff very accommodating with the exception of the waiter on the Top of the Mark. There they... More

You need to stay here if you are in SF. This is the prettiest hotel, not in the touristy area but you're also not so far away from the shopping district. Our family stayed here during Christmas and it was magical

You get a very comfortable hotel in a great location at the Mark Hopkins Inter-Continental. The hotel is old, but the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is good, but pricey. The staff is friendly and the gym is very good for a hotel-only workout facility.

Atop Nob Hill, this hotel has long been a landmark. Our room faced Mason Street. Our room was in great shape - not always true in a hotel this age - though our bed wasn't the best for my back - a bit too soft. Facing California street would be the noisiest, as the cable cars really are noisy. Mason... More

The hotel is actually on a nice hood, but the hotel is old and the rooms are small. there are few places that you can walk by to grab few drinks from the hotel. The people is nice in general but its a little overpriced for what it offers. They offer free parking which is pretty good. Make sure you... More

Stayed early Dec 2016 for 3 nights. Location is perfect. One tram runs infront of the hotel and goes to Embarcadero. 2 blocks and another tram that goes to Union Square. What else do you want? If you are going to use this trams a lot, I suggest getting those multi ride tickets. The room is huge and service was... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
