The Inn at the Presidio Review

A brick facade, porches with rocking chairs, and an outdoor fire pit set the backdrop for this idyllic hotel at the base of numerous hiking and biking trails in the Presidio, a National Land Trust. Built in 1903 and opened as a hotel in 2012, the two-story, Georgian Revival-style building (which once served as officers' quarters in military days past) features 26 guestrooms—17 of them suites—complete with complimentary Wi-Fi, gas fireplaces, and modern-meets-salvage store finds such as wrought-iron beds, industrial-inspired task lamps, historic black-and-white photos, and Pendleton blankets. By mid-2014 the inn will have added the Funston House, which will contain four rooms surrounding a common living room, dining room, and kitchen, ideal for larger groups traveling together. Perks include views of nearby Golden Gate Bridge, a nightly wine-and-cheese reception, and a Continental breakfast buffet, for carb loading pre-hike. As homey as it gets.

    Some things to iron out

    The hotel is beautiful in architecture and setting. The concierge, Brett, was very helpful in getting rental car and restaurant reservations for us. The rooms could use 1.) Fans for warm days, no A.C. 2.) An information sheet about the hotel's amenities and where to find them. Other than those two things, we would recommend it and felt fortunate to spend a night there recently.
