InterContinental Mark Hopkins

1 Nob Hill
San Francisco , CA , United States http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/intercontinental/en/gb/locations/sfoha
(415) 392-3434

This 19-story hotel was constructed in 1926 on the same site as the preexisting mansion of Mark Hopkins, a tycoon who created the Central Pacific Railroad. Original architectural firm Weeks and Days designed the hotel as a French château, and InterContinental was eventually contracted to manage operations in 1973. Atop Nob Hill, it became notorious during World War II, especially rooftop lounge Top of the Mark, as the location in which service men swooned with their female companions before facing deployment. Of the 380 guest rooms, and 32 suites, many have expansive views of Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf.
