Intercontinental Mark Hopkins , SF

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
no

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
booked cheapest and got 'upgrade' to another room that looked cheap but had a view

How are the rooms?
embarrassing, probably last updated in the 1980s

How is the exec. lounge?
it is a space shared with the lobby restaurant and basically the only positive thing about stay, quite decent wines, beers and liquors + some respectable food offering at breakfast + happy hour

Did you receive a welcome gift?
some tiny pack of raspberry candy

How was the minibar?
it was nothing special, fairly low-grade offering

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
liked the Club Lounge

cool location + view

-Bad
rooms for USD 500 nightly that were a complete joke
USD 65 to park
weak upgrade

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
a poor value all around unless you booked for > USD 200

Would you return?
no I might try other IC in SF if rate was decent

my brother did pay $$$ to upgrade a reward night room to the Penthouse suite (just below Top of the Mark) that was huge and had great views (but the same frumpy / dated decor as normal rooms)
rate quoted was USD 1900 nightly
