Close to the actionMy friend and I were going to a concert at Bill Graham Auditorium. It is 1 1/2 blocks away. It is even closer to the Orpheum Theater. We felt very safe walking to and from at night. Breakfast in the restaurant was the perfect end to our stay.

Memories of my ParentsMy WWII parents stayed at the Mark Hopkins in 1947 when my war bride mother arrived from Sydney, Australia. I had always wished to see for myself the inside of this hotel. It was charming, and the staff very helpful. George, the concierge, was especially helpful.

I was disappointed that they do not even put a pitcher of water in the room. Also the hall ways are too dark. And the extra fees like the facilities fee's. Other than that everything was ok.
