Expert Review

If you’re looking for more of a personalized experience, consider the 21-room Parker Guest House, an inn divided between two 1909 Edwardian mansions. The staff is small and friendly, the atmosphere is intimate, a bottle of sherry sits in the living room by the fireplace so you can have an evening cocktail while making new friends, and there’s a steam room (free for all guest use) where you can blow off some stress. Other facilities include a library, piano, two lounges, and a sunroom, which plays host to a continental breakfast and complimentary wine service from 5:30pm to 6:30pm daily. For those who love nightlife, the location couldn’t be more ideal: The Parker House sits proudly in the middle of the Castro, one of San Francisco’s liveliest districts and home to many of the city’s late-night clubs. Note the property bills itself as a “gay hotel” but welcomes both gay and straight guests.
