Can you recommend any of these SF hotels?

I'm planning a trip to San Francisco and I'm trying to choose among the following hotels:

The Fairmont
Hotel Palomar
Hotel Monaco
Prescott Hotel
InterContinental San Francisco
Mark Hopkins InterContinental

Has anyone stayed at any of these? Scanning the travelocity and expedia scores helped me narrow it down to these, but I can't really narrow it down any further. And they're all in the same price range with the discounts I'm getting, so that's not really a factor. I'm leaning towards the Fairmont because it's so historic. Any suggestions?

Sounds good to me! The pictures on their website definitely look Ritz-Carlton-y. Thanks for the feedback!

I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
It's been more than 7 years, but DH and I stayed at the Fairmont and enjoyed our stay.
The Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf was good for me.
rileyb, I can't believe you've been to almost all of them! Good to hear from someone who can compare them all, and it's also good to know that I can't go wrong with any of them.
I've stayed in none of them, but I live in SF and they are all in OK-to-good parts of town.

Wow, we're having an earthquake as I'm typing this.

Are you OK, ducky? I actually lived in the Bay Area, too (Berkeley and Oakland for 8 years), but I never experienced an earthquake. Or, maybe I did but didn't know it.

rileyb, it's called the Fifth Floor restaurant. My boyfriend discovered that Zagat rates it one of the best hotel restaurants. Sounds like it might be worth going to even if we don't stay at the Palomar. Of course, we'll be there for a conference, so we'd probably run into a lot of people there. But I imagine it will be hard to avoid people wherever we go. (My misanthropy will have to be held in check for a few days...)
Yes, the Fifth Floor, thank you. It is great, but there are tons of equally great restaurants in the city if you want to be antisocial.

I stayed at Hotel Monaco recently, and it's cute and very charming, but not exactly on the same "level" as the first two. The Prescott is an older hotel--nice, but not a huge place like Fairmont and MH. If you're looking for the "big hotel" experience pick Fairmont or MH. If you like smaller boutique hotels, then Monaco or Prescott. I've never been/seen Palomar.

Thanks, Cheleigh! I hadn't really thought about it before, but I guess I would prefer a larger hotel. I may need a back-up choice, so I think I'll go with the Fairmont first and Mark Hopkins second. Thanks to everyone for their advice.
