A landmark sleep in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood, with one of the city’s best bars and beautiful bay views
Built in 1926 on the crest of San Francisco’s ritzy Nob Hill, the Mark Hopkins has seen presidents, royals and boldface names like Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson check in over the years. Its 19th-floor bar, Top of the Mark, is a destination in and of itself thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that offer 360-degree views of the city and a cocktail menu with more than 100 martinis to choose from. Suites have a pale yellow, violet, red and taupe color scheme, as well as Frette linens, wood accents, Bose stereos and minibars. Keep up your workout regimen at the top-of-the-line gym, which is open 24/7, and when hunger strikes, head to the Nob Hill Club for farm-to-table fare from executive chef Nenad Stefanovic paired with California wines. Don’t miss the Triple Truffle Burger, named for its toppings of truffle aioli and truffle tremor, with a side of truffle fries.
In the Area
San Francisco’s Chinatown is just a short walk from the Mark Hopkins; explore the neighborhood’s winding alleys, which are dotted with temples, shops and restaurants, and go to lunch at Z & Y Restaurant, famous for its spicy Sichuan dishes (President Obama has even dropped in for takeout). Shop luxury brands like Chanel, Hermès and Prada on Union Square’s Maiden Lane or, if vintage finds are more your style, head to Haight-Ashbury to browse the racks at stalwarts like Held Over. Save an afternoon to explore Golden Gate Park, home to the de Young Museum of fine arts, the California Academy of Sciences and the San Francisco Botanical Garden, as well as one of the prettiest places in the city, the Japanese Tea Garden, where you can stop for tea and snacks.
