Fodor's Review

The circular redbrick drive of this towering Nob Hill architectural landmark leads to an opulent, mirrored, marble-floor lobby which is the gateway to luxurious rooms, with Frette linens and goose-down duvets, that glow with gold, cream, and yellow tones, and bathrooms that are lined with multicolor Italian marble. Rooms on the upper floors have views of either the Golden Gate Bridge or the downtown cityscape. The legendary rooftop lounge, the Top of the Mark, has dancing

and live music—and a justly famous 100-martini cocktail menu—but the real star is the breathtaking near-360-degree view of the city (that can also be enjoyed during an elaborate Sunday brunch). The Mark is an especially glamorous destination on New Year's Eve. The hotel oozes with history, from the nearly century-old mural in the Room of the Dons, to the mini-museum off the lobby and the art installations by local Academy of Art students. Stroll around and learn about the rich past of San Francisco's Big Four railroad barons and why this hotel was a favorite of film director Alfred Hitchcock and so many celebrity residents.
