I just stayed at the Parker House for the third time and once again I am so glad that I did! I love the location walking distance to the Castro and the Mission. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The common areas are beautiful and comfortable, especially the courtyard. Check in was a breeze and the manager was wonderful... More

This is a lovely property. The pictures don´t do it enough justice. The garden is a wonderful a peaceful place to relax and unwind. I was booked into one of the cheaper en suite rooms and was afraid it would be too small, but #27 is perfectly adequate with enough space to unpack and move around comfortably. Some people complain... More

I live in Los Angeles and travel to San Francisco a couple of times a year for work. I have been staying at the Parker Guest House for the past 5 or 6 years and LOVE IT! In fact, I cancelled my last business trip because I couldn't get last minute reservations at the Parker, and flew up the following... More

I chose the Parker Guest House in San Francisco in part because I was travelling to the city for a huge conference (SEMICON West) and booking late, so all the hotels close to the Moscone were full. I've had good luck staying at B&B's on other trips, and the Parker was highly rated, AND had a room for the two... More

Beautiful inside and out. The Parker Guest House went above and beyond making us feel right at home during our stay. It was our first time to San Francisco, and we couldn't have picked a better place to call home for the week. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and gave us ideas on great places to visit and... More

Absolutely beautiful place to stay. Worth every penny/cent. A home from home. All the staff were welcoming friendly, helpful and approachable throughout my stay. The setting is idyllic, relaxing gardens, stylish and tastefully decorated. Totally secure. I booked a Queen sized room with my own bathroom attached. Perfect size, comfortable bed, light bright and clean, quiet at night. Use of... More

I stayed with two friends from Brazil in Parker Guesthouse. We absolutely loved the place, it has a homely feel and the staff really practice HOSPITALITY. The home is charming, the garden great, and location is really cool. We loved wondering around The Castro, not only because of its reputation, but actually also it is nice to explore restaurants, shops... More

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
