Rated one of the city’s top guesthouses by gay travel sites such as Spartacus and Purple Roofs, this lovely 1909 Edwardian B&B in the heart of the Castro is the perfect oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing. Sip a glass of wine outside by the garden fountain at the daily complimentary social, or lounge by the fireplace or in the library. Spacious, newly renovated rooms feature down comforters, terry robes, and a modern feel. Located in one of San Francisco’s sunniest neighborhoods, it’s an ideal launch pad for exploring the Mission, Hayes Valley, and Mid-Market neighborhoods. Pretend you’ve been here for ages and head to local favorites Philz Coffee and Dolores Park a few blocks away.
