Concierge.com's insider take:

This gothic hulk of a building in neighborhoodtk Nob Hill is named after Mark Hopkins, the Central Pacific Railroad co-founder whose mansion previously stood here. After being acquired in 1973 by the InterContinental chain, the hotel lost some of its character and now attracts a buttoned-up business clientele. But nearly every room has a stunning view and some luxe touches, like Frette linens. Splurge on a Terrace Suite to enjoy the ultimate perch above the city, complete with solarium, and feel like a tycoon. If you plan to spend much of your time in the hotel, consider paying an extra $60 per couple ($40 per individual) for club access, which includes hotel-wide Wi-Fi, five daily food services, and an open bar in the evening. The Nob Hill restaurant serves California cuisine, and the 19th floor houses the Top of the Mark, famous for its nearly 360-degree panorama. Although the bar is typically full of tourists, there's nothing quite like enjoying a martini (they serve 100 varieties) while listening to live jazz and watching the sun set over Babylon by the Bay.—Updated by John Vlahides
