The Hotel at the Presidium is a very historic site which has been lovingly restored to a wonderful Inn. We stayed in a four suite annex - the former Officer's Quarters. Breakfast was delicious each day, served in the beautifully restored main hotel. The wine and cheese in the late afternoon was a great way to end the day and... More

We stayed in the Inn for 3 nights last July. We were travelling with our 2 children of 10 and 12. The atmosphere is relaxed yet sophisticated. What we liked: - great bedding - lots of space - lots of cupboards - children had separate bedroom (sofa was turned into bed) - 2 televisions - so at night in bed... More

We awoke to the calm & peaceful morning then gathered for a bountiful breakfast. Leisure strolls, historical & natural tours, admiration of the beauty, followed by evenings spent by the outdoor fire pit with wine & lite horse devours, gave us the experience of natural luxury. The caring and friendly staff were there to navigate the individual needs of transportation,... More

I'd spent a long time choosing our hotel for San Fran after a poor choice in NY last year, As soon as we arrived I knew we'd got the right place. The 3rd floor suite was really generous and the sofa bed big enough for teens to share. Our bed (separate room) was huge with quality bedding. It was a... More

We stayed at the Inn in May 2014. What a delight! The third-floor suite was huge. This historical building used to be unmarried officers' quarters and is charming in every way. The included breakfast and afternoon wine were both very enjoyable. The service was low key but professional. If you want ready access to the tourist highlights of SF, you... More

This was a beautifully restored hotel and attention to detail was fantastic. The room was well appointed and the bed so comfortable. We loved our stay here and although it is out of the city hustle and bustle, we were glad about that. Use the car service for any distance trips it was good value or the free bus. We... More

We spent the first part of our visit to SF in the touristy district -- but decided that we'd like to try a place a little different for the last part of our visit. The Inn at the Presidio was exactly what we were looking for! It was wonderful! We had a two-room suite which was very comfortably decorated with... More

Despite having family and friends in the city and nearby, I had grown to dislike San Francisco in recent years... Enter the Inn at the Presidio! I first stayed when the Inn was fairly new, and since then it has been the ONLY place I'll stay here. Fully booked? I'll reschedule my trip rather than stay elsewhere! You see, I... More

We came for two nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and were very happy with our accommodations. We didn't have the best view (over the parking lot and looking at the church) and know to request a different room next time. The breakfast and wine/cheese were both very well managed and great food offerings. We knew we were in... More

we had a great visit over 4th of July 2014 weekend. View of Suasalito fireworks from our top floor room (no elevator though). Breakfast and Afternoon food is very good, but we spoiled our dinners eating too much of it. Highlight was Sergio bringing us freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and milk by the fire pit at 9:30 PM when... More
