“Great view, nice bed, quiet room and at the center of it all in San Francisco”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

An amazing view...ask for at least the 12th floor facing the Transamerica Building, you'll leave the drapes open all the time just to see the view. This view does come with a little price (two actually). If you want to walk, you can get to nearly anything quick...Moscone, Chinatown, wharf...whatever, and it all starts downhill. But if you're walking with bags, your penance will be the hike back up!

Oh, that second price...is the cost of breakfast. I'm happy to spend over 300 a night for a room, but c'mon, $50 for breakfast?!? It was $150 for the three of us...and for a buffet that was solid, but not worth that type of bank.

Ok, back to the hotel. Classic ambiance, wonderful service, in a beautiful setting. Enjoy the stay.

Room Tip: An amazing view...ask for at least the 12th floor facing the Transamerica Building, you'll leave...

I have stayed in other hotels in San Francisco but this was by far the most luxurious, however this comes at a cost, although this time the business was paying which made it more acceptable!
The hotel is literally situated at the top of the main part of the bay area. Some of the rooms have stunning views over the city especially higher up, but of course these tend to be more expensive. The hotel is well positioned for all the major sites and the transport network; the famous cable-car stops right outside the door.
The rooms are well apportioned and the daily service was excellent.
As is the trend nowadays almost everything additional came with a charge, and as one would expect with the surroundings at a premium; Breakfast = $30, 3 drinks at the bar =$30, WIfi = $17/day etc. My advice is within a 15 minute radius of the hotel you can be sitting in one of hundreds of bars, cafes, restaurants etc all serving great food and drinks at a cheaper rate with guaranteed free WiFI access.
In summary if you can afford it, or someone else is paying, then this is a great hotel, if you are stopping on a tighter budget and/or the hotel is just a place to rest your head while visiting this great city then you are probably best being somewhere else.

Room Tip: In this city don't spend too much time in the hotel

This old building is full of class and history. Very elegant. The rooms are clean and with great views of the city. Don't expect minimalist forniture, it wouldn't match the decor!
Is hard to imagine a classier hotel... Imagine! it has a Mercedes Benz with a driver that can give you a ride wherever you want in the nearby area... we felt awesome when he took us to Morton's for dinner.
Hotel is in the top of a steep hill, you can walk to union square but the way back with your shopping bags or high heels will take you some time. The cable car stops in the corner, so is an option if you don't wanna walk or don't have the time.
Everyone is very friendly and truely care about your needs. We did not use the food services since the city is full of great places to eat.
I would stay here again on my next visit to SF. This is not the cheapest hotel, so I recommend to do a bit of research before since prices may change from one website to another.

Mark Hopkins San Francisco was excellent. Centrally located (on a hill so walking back from shopping areas nearby takes some time) with great rooms. We had a room on higher floor with great view of the city.

We stayed a few days in the Mark Hopkins and liked this old, prestigious building. The lobby is surprisingly small and you sort of would expect a bar down there. Standard room is good, some people may find the sounds of the cable tram outside annoying (we liked this 'couleur locale') and HD TV would have been nice for that big LCD screen. Staff very friendly: great people outside, excellent concierge, efficient reception desk, very helpful cleaning staff, etc. Breakfast on the 18th floor is ridiculously expensive, but hey: you can't beat the view and the quality is good.

Room Tip: You may want to be careful with rooms on California, with the noise of the cable tram.
