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 San Francisco’s premier neighborhood, 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 the property soon reclaimed the Hotel Mark Twain title, which it has retained to this day.
In the late 40s, the Union Square SF 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.”
Each room at the Hotel Mark Twain mixes historic charm with stylish accents and modern conveniences. Every stay is enjoyable at this hotel in San Francisco, thanks to friendly staff and comfortable accommodations.
