If you want to experience the feel of the city without feeling like a visitor this is a great option. The proximity to the bridge and park is perfect for a run and no better way to visit the GGB and see the bay. The Union Street location is wonderful and gives you a true sense of the local culture. The inn itself is very warm and comfortable. I have always been apprehensive about staying at a B&B but this experience has changed my mind. Getting to know the other guests over a glass of wine or morning coffee was pleasant (this coming from somewhat of an introvert) and the staff could not have been more genuine, welcoming and interesting. Breakfast is not to be missed.
Skip the Wharf but visit Alcatraz!
