Top of the Mark at the Mark Hopkins San Francisco

Top of the Mark at the Mark Hopkins San Francisco

The magnificent Mark Hopkins Hotel opened in 1926 atop San Francisco’s historic Nob Hill. Built by hotelier George D. Smith, and named after railroad tycoon Mark Hopkins, the 19-story luxury hotel was designed by the San Francisco-based architectural firm Weeks & Day. In 1939, Smith decided to turn the hotel’s 19th floor penthouse suite into a cocktail lounge with 360 degree views. The lounge, named “The Top of The Mark,” was an overnight success.

During World War II, it is said that San Francisco servicemen would gather at The Top of The Mark for a final toast before heading out to duty. The Golden Gate Bridge was thought to be a symbol of good luck and honoring it would ensure their safe return home. Today, the Mark Hopkins’ beauty and unique history make it a popular destination for both locals and visitors from around the world.

Taken from the Top of the Rock in New York City.

Not as sharp as I would had liked, but had to pump up the ISO and handheld the shot because no tripods are allowed on the top of the 'Rock.'

More to come from the NYC trip in the coming days/weeks.
