The Hotel Mark Twain represents a modern expression of a vintage era, where the words of Mark Twain provide a logic and sensibility that will charm eternal. A boutique hotel in the heart of San Francisco, it is in walking distance to a variety of restaurants, theaters, shops at Union Square, cable cars on Powell and the Moscone Convention Center—an ideal location for the business or leisure traveler.
The Hotel Mark Twain is a tribute to its famous author. Originally built as the Linden Hotel in 1928, it was renamed the Hotel Mark Twain during the Great Depression. The name changed again with another owner, but soon returned back to the Hotel Mark Twain and has remained so to this day.
In the late 40’s the hotel was made infamous with the arrest of the great blues singer Billie Holiday in room #203. Federal narcotics agents found her in possession of opium and a pipe. The case went to trial and she was acquitted however, earning the Hotel Mark Twain a listing in the “Top Ten Famous Hotel Rooms”.
A room at the Hotel Mark Twain mixes historic charm with stylish accents and modern conveniences. Comfortable and cozy in the heart of the City, the friendly staff makes any stay enjoyable.
The Hotel Mark Twain is literally in the center of all San Francisco Attractions!
