Expert Review

This iconic, 19-story hotel opened in 1926 and sits right atop Nob Hill, overlooking Union Square, SoMa, and the rest of the city. The 550 rooms are neoclassical in design and outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and natural wood, marble, and glass touches. Each rooms features Wi-Fi (about $13 a day), a plasma TV with pay movies, a mini-bar, and Frette bathrobes; babysitting, a concierge, secretarial services, and workout facilities are available throughout the hotel. The Mark Hopkins achieved widespread notoriety during World War II when it became a farewell point for soldiers bidding their loved ones adieu; be sure and head to the hotel’s summit yourself for the best view in the city at the resident cocktail lounge Top of the Mark and to see where such history was made.
