Two yellow 1909 Edwardians perched across from Dolores Park make this a popular choice for repeat visitors to the city. Favored by visiting musicians and LGBTQ travelers, this handsome inn provides comfort and class.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Some rooms are three flights upstairs--and there's no elevator--so if you have limited mobility make sure to arrange a ground floor room.
Dark hallways and steep staircases lead to bright earth-toned rooms featuring comfortable sitting areas and cozy linens.
On nice days guests relax in the lush (and surprisingly expansive) gardens. The sophisticated living room features a wall of books, brandy for the taking, and a grand piano often used by the visiting SF symphony pianist who stays here during the season.
Innkeepers serve a modest Continental breakfast in the light-filled dining area. Expect muffins and fruit, coffee, and tea.
While the property offers parking (for a fee), most adore this property for its central location between the Castro, Mission and lower Haight. Walkers will find much to explore and when your legs get tired, hop on the Muni train that stops at the corner.
Join the hipsters at Namu Gaji (5-minute walk) for Korean clay pot dishes. Also nearby is Pizzeria Delphina (6-minute walk) which serves one of the city's best gourmet pies.
The classic Castro bar and club Twin Peaks Tavern (6-minute walk) lures the LGBTQ crowd for well drinks and brews. Over in the Mission the cute 20 Spot (8-minute walk) promises a fantastic wine list.
