Were able to stay only one night but it felt like 'us' as soon as we walked in. Beautiful premises, and a wonderful location between two marvellous historic locations, the Castro and Mission. There's a tram direct to downtown and the Embarcadero waterfront area right outside, which is wonderfully convenient. We didn't eat locally, but there looked to be lots... More

Very nice stay in the Castro area. Quant guest house with very helpful staff. Ask for availability of parking they have limited spaces. Get the rooms with private bath. There are two separate houses and a very nice garden area. They serve a light breakfast and have a nice wine social in the late afternoon.

The Parker was a perfect base for our exploration of San Francisco, and went well above and beyond to accommodate our travel plans, such as holding luggage for us whilst we made two other trips. Both houses are delightful, as are the gardens which, with their wooden steps, could almost pass for Mrs Madrigal's own. The daily wine socials are... More

My partner and I stayed at The Parker House based on a recommendation on a friend. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. I will recommend The Parker House to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay in San Francisco.

Virtually every time I visit San Francisco, I stay at the Parker Guest House. I've been there with my wife and I've come alone on business. The only times I don't stay there are when I'm attending a conference that is held at a hotel. I've arrived late at night and early in the morning, and the staff is always... More

We were treated so kindly by the attentive staff we felt right at home. Lots of good food always available. ( even really good coffee w/half and half). Lovely places to sit and relax inside and out. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were steps away from Dolores Park, excellent restaurants, quirky cafes, Muni system. Loved it

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.
