If you don’t mind sharing a bathroom and enjoy a friendly, social setting, the Willows is an excellent choice. Housed in an old Edwardian building in the heart of the Castro, this is a favorite among LGBT guests, but all are welcome. All have bentwood willow furnishings, antique dressers or armoires, and colorful cozy duvets. Though no rooms have a private bathroom, each has a vanity sink and some have chaise lounges or bay windows. Guests enjoy complimentary continental breakfast including eggs, juice, yogurt, fruit, and coffee. Evening cocktails are also hosted, encouraging guests to mingle and relax. Pick your price point or the room you want ahead of time so there are no surprises upon arrival.
