The staff here is the story. They go well beyond the call of duty to accommodate the needs of their guests. I loved getting "locals" knowledge from Raymond, it was very helpful in planning our very limited time in San Francisco. The hotel is located at the entrance to the Presidio; just a block away is a bus that takes... More

Thank you for the excellent review. I apologize for the incident you witnessed with our neighbors, not our staff. We extend our hospitality to not only our guests and employees but to our neighbors and community. Unfortunately, at times, attitudes can shift in a not so pleasant direction in life. We should have taken the steps to diffuse the situation.... More

I was in SF over a weekend to see the Van Gogh, et al exhibit at the deYoung. I chose this hotel on the basis of the reviews of its customer service and the relative proximity to Golden Gate Park. While a guest there, I decided to leave my car at the hotel and take public transportation. Both Nikki and... More

Thank you for the great review. The Post-Impressionism exhibit was very beautiful, as is the very modern De Young museum. I just visited the Legion of Honor for the first time and was very impressed. The exhibits all around San Francisco are second to few. Nikki, Ray, Richard, Stephen, and Bruce at the front desk are very knowledgeable. They strive... More

While on golf trips, I've stayed in many places in San Francisco and have stayed here often. I can honestly say this place is above par. Tyler, Raymond and Nicky lead a great team in providing excellent service. Raymond is an excellent source of knowledge on local attractions and how to get around town. It's clean and recently renovated with... More

Hello! Thank you for posting another review for us. We always look forward to your semi-annual trips here. There IS more to come (rumors of new furniture…). The staff appreciates the high compliments and your repeat business. P.S. I just had the fortune of playing Lake Merced country club, in Daly City, which is very comparable to Harding.

While it is a bit off the beaten path, at the Lombard Gate of the Presidio, it is convenient to several main bus lines to get anywhere you might want to go as a tourist. The beds were extremely comfortable with down quilts and fluffy pillows and it's location made it very quiet at night. Although, I have to say,... More

I just got back from a short stay in SF and found this hotel on Trip Advisor, it was in an excellent location of San Francisco, near the Presidio and in walking distance to the Marina. It was necessary to take a bus to the Wharf and many of the tourist sites, but felt it was worth it to stay... More

I am glad you found us on Tripadvisor and am glad you have contributed to our reviews. Our proximity to the Presidio, the Marina district, and other main attractions, all while being quiet makes our property so much easier to sell. Our Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite beds do provide a great night's sleep. Thank you for your comments. Tyler Shanahan... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
