We stay at the Mark Hopkins whenever we fly to San Francisco to visit our daughter and her family. Our daughter has lived there for nearly 20 years and we tried a variety of the hotels in the city.
Once we found the Mark Hopkins, we never stay anywhere else. Even now that our daughter and her husband moved to Alameda, we still stay at the Mark Hopkins one night--just because we love it and love to walk all over San Francisco.
We have gotten to know several hotel staff members--warm and friendly, polite and helpful. [Less]
