Welcome to the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins. Located in the heart of Nob Hill in San Francisco, this hotel gives you a great base for exploration of the city and some amazing views. The Intercontinental Mark Hopkins, built in 1926 has it’s very specific charm and look. The rooms and hotel are kept in a vintage design, which makes it something special in the high-tech city of San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. A lot of you have seen the hotel already but haven’t recognized it when you watched the movie “Need for Speed“.
The Intercontinental Hotels of IHG are on my list for a long time now and this is the first Intercontinental I ever stayed at. The Mark Hopkins has a lot to offer, from the great bar and dining at the Top of the Mark, the great views from the Top of the Mark, the Museum next to the lobby or a restaurant featuring market-fresh products.
For my stay, I used the free night certificate I got last year with the Share Forever promotion IHG was running. The free-night certificate was about to expire and this was definitely a great and easy way to redeem it. The whole booking process took place online and I reserved my Deluxe Room.
