This was my first stay at the Parker. I planned it for the end of my recent CA business trip in which I stayed two nights and found the experience enjoyable. I have no major complaints except something I didn't expect was how noise travels... the walls are not that thick and I could hear hallway doors closing and some conversation [guess I am a light sleeper!]. Though the place was fully booked but it never seemed it. The other guests I met were all friendly, some even wanting to socialize outside of the hotel.
The complimentary breakfast was nice.. I am not sure what others expected but I was pleased, it included fresh cut fruit every morning!
The location is excellent, though for cold nights the walk to/from the Castro bars is a bit chilly. I bet it is fabulous during other times of the year. I also experienced that there are many nice restaurants in the immediate area, right on Church St! And for those late owls... Sparky's is open 24 hours. Good dinner type food at reasonable prices.
The best attribute of this hotel establishment is the staff. Very nice and always willing to help.
The only suggestions I would make to the owners/staff is to extend the Steam room hours, it is only open from 4-10 pm every night, the time most guest are already out on the town. A big plus would be if they had a jacuzzi... a couple of other guests noted that we are not used to all of the walking and our legs could use the water therapy!
Hope this review helps... I look forward to staying there again!
