We stayed at The Parsonage for three nights in November and the whole experience was lovely. The property itself is not only beautiful but also beautifully restored. Joan and John have done an incredibly impressive job of creating a luxurious, warm and friendly B&B that sits perfectly in the present while honouring the building's past. I'm sure the originally owners... More

We really enjoyed our three nights at the Parsonage. Joan and John are very considerate hosts. And they're flexible, with good senses of humor. The house is a classic Victorian home, with high ceilings and interesting architectural features. There are about five rooms on both the 2nd and 3rd floors. We had the room at the back of the 2nd...

Our room was comfortable, attractively furnished and spotless. It was a great privilege to stay in one of the very few private... More

We spent four nights at The Parsonage. What a great experience! The house is beautiful and filled with antiques. Our room was spacious and comfy. Breakfast was delicious every morning and it was a great time to sit and chat with other guests and to hear of their adventures in San Francisco and get some good ideas! The area is... More

My wife and I just spent three glorious nights at the Parsonage. There are many fine hotels in San Francisco but few as deserving of their high Trip Advisor ranking as this one. Feel free to also read my review of Golden Gate Hotel where we are finishing up a three night stay; also a good hotel but I think... More

A beautiful house in a great location, Joan and john, and Matt as well, created the perfect holiday for my wife and I. Amazing breakfast and a tranquil environment before and after a busy day exploring the nearby suburbs, shops and restaurants. Thank you.

This was my third time to San Francisco, and my husband's second. We looked for places to stay about a month before and noticed this gem on Trip Advisor. I'm so glad we found it! The Parsonage is tucked away in the perfect location-- within walking distance of Hayes Valley and Valencia St., which both have amazing restaurants, coffee shops,... More

The Parsonage was a perfect place for our stay. It's located in an amazing neighborhood away from the chaos of union square. The house is a well kept gorgeous Victorian mansion. Our room and bathroom were incredibly clean and tidied up daily. The bed was also very comfortable. The house was very quiet and cozy. Joan and John were great... More

when I arrived the room was dirty. The lamp - and only one except for a tiny antique lamp - was broken and had to be fixed the next day. There were other problems as well. It was rare the innkeeper was at the Inn. I left a hair dryer that i bought from Neiman Marcus and when I realized... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
