We come up twice a year to SF and always stay at the Mark Hopkins. It's such a lovely hotel - the location is great and it's just just a classy property. The place could be cleaned up a little / maybe a re-fresh on some of the finishes. The carpet in the elevators and hallways seems dingy and dirty. All in all, will always be back.

The location of this property is wonderful. The property itself has a lot of history and charm. It's a bit dated but well-maintained. The rooms are spacious and the views are amazing. Top of the Mark is a must-visit. Parking is pricey, but the parking attendants are friendly, helpful, and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay.
