An iconic hotel perched at the top of Nob Hill.
Known simply as "The Mark Hopkins," this nineteen-story hotel has been a San Francisco favorite for decades. All 380 guest rooms come standard with flat screen televisions, mini-refrigerators and spacious work desks. Suites add separate sitting rooms and cavernous bathrooms. Guests who upgrade to the Club InterContinental Lounge level receive late check-out and complimentary food and beverage presentations throughout the day. What's more, there's a 24-hour on-site fitness center and a business center for all to use. Still, what draws most tourists to the Mark Hopkins is the "Top of the Mark," a romantic rooftop lounge that overlooks the city and has been a high-altitude meeting place for generations. Upgraded in 1996, the bar is a must-visit, especially on a clear night.
