San Francisco: Landmark Mark Hopkins hotel turns 85

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

The Mark Hopkins hotel at the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco opened its doors on Dec. 4, 1926. The landmark hotel, now part of the Intercontinental chain, sits at the location of what was once the mansion of California railroad magnate Mark Hopkins.

Hopkins never lived to see the home completed, and it later burned down in a fire caused by the 1906 earthquake. Now the hotel turns 85 in style with a few celebratory deals at its 19th-floor Top of the Mark lounge.

The deal: The 85th Year Package for two includes a photo, bottle of Moet Champagne, a cheese plate and a special dessert for $85. For $19.26, two may share the 1926 Nightcap Package that features Prosecco and chocolate-covered strawberries while overlooking the city.

When: The offer is good through Jan. 31.

Details: You also can enter an Anniversary Weekend Getaway contest for an overnight stay for two and the 85th Year Package at the hotel's Facebook page
