Comfortable sofas and overstuffed chairs are arranged in intimate settings on hand-woven carpets that envelop guests in that luxurious, leisurely feeling for which the Mark Hopkins has always been known.

When the top of the Mark opened on May 11, 1939, it became an instant success as the foremost sky lounge in the Nation. Since that day, the Top of the Mark has been part of San Francisco’s rich and colorful history. Through war and peace, good times and bad, people have found these spectacular views of the ever-changing San Francisco cityscape to be an integral part of significant moments in their lives; a wedding, an anniversary, a marriage proposal, a farewell, a reunion, moments that touch and are long remembered. To visitors from all over the world the Top is much more than a venue – it’s a landmark, a tradition, an experience, and for seeing San Francisco, an absolute must. The Top of the Mark is available on Saturday afternoons and Sunday evenings for private catered affairs.
The recently completed multi million-dollar renovation included reconfiguring the floor plan to create ten new one-bedroom suites, accommodating guests’ requests for additional suites. Still showing off fabulous views of the City by the Bay from virtually every room, the Mark Hopkins now features 380 guestrooms, 38 of which are suites. Guestrooms highlight the mix of traditional and modern. The updated but classic color scheme of sienna and golden yellow with bronze and black accents complements the custom-made maple furniture, stained in cherry and walnut. The bathrooms, reconfigured and expanded, use a combination of Spanish Rojo-Alicante and Italian Botticino marble, along with the black galaxy granite vanity tops. Decorative mirrors and soft, warm lighting make guests feel right at home.
Five luxury suites, located on the top three floors of the hotel, offer distinctively different styles from each other, with designs inspired by the American, European and Asian influences on San Francisco. Each offers something unique -some have solariums, some have a formal dining room, some have fireplaces. All the luxury suites have Jacuzzi tubs.
Unique to San Francisco hotels, the Mark Hopkins features seven terrace suites with glass-enclosed patios that further highlight the panoramic views of the City and the Bay Area.
