T Our three night stay at the Parker House was definitely a highlight of our trip. Common guest areas and staff were comfortable, warm, friendly and very accommodating. SCOT was outstanding staff member! Convenient to public transportation and great restaurants. Have already recommended to friends and would stay again in a heart beat. Thanks!

Although I tend to prefer larger hotels, I am glad I chose to stay at the Parker Guest House. I stayed for five nights. The Parker is in a great location - a block away from Dolores Park in The Mission, and a couple of blocks from The Castro. Easy access to public transportation to get around the city. Everyone...

What an experience, I forget this is even a guest house! Well, it's not really a guesthouse as us British would know it! This is like a boutique 5* hotel, just on a small scale! Amazing facilities and bedrooms. Luxury fittings, fixtures and furnishings. Amazing breakfast served in the summer room with lots of very interesting people to talk to!... More

If you are planning a trip to San Fran You must consider Parkers Guest House. From the moment you arrive everything is taken care of right through to the moment you leave. Very flexible on arrival where possible and no issues holding you luggage at the end of your stay for those on late flights. Superbly located a couple of... More

A couple of years ago, I wrote a review titled "It's like coming home." I meant it then, and now, after several stays, I mean it even more. Everything about Parker Guest House conveys a warm welcome and gracious hospitality. It starts in the morning with the pots of excellent coffee and a variety of choices for breakfast. Your day...

Lovely little B & B steps from Dolores Park in the Mission. Great service in a great location. Two refurbished townhouses separated by a beautiful garden and patio. Breakfast in the morning was good, wine and snacks in the afternoon were refreshing. Fresh coffee and fruit all day long. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet.

I had a wonderful experience at the Parker Guest House. What a beautiful spot -- the classic architecture gives you a real flavor for San Francisco. My room (26) was perfect: no noise, a nicely maintained private bathroom, very comfy sheets. Staff were very cheery and helpful. I loved hanging out in the "living room" area -- it features a...

A beautifully appointed and gorgeously presented guest house comprised of two connected lots. Architecturally and stylistically invoking true San Franciscan tradition and style, I felt the aesthetic of so many films and stories as soon as I stepped through the gate. The proximity to Castro (especially during Pride and the International Film Festival), to Mission Delores Park, as well as... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Parker Guies House. The accommodation was very celan and had some nice touches. Breakfast was continental with pastries, fruit, yogurt, porridge, toast, juice, tea and coffee. The social gathering with wine and nibbles later afternoon was a great way to meet other guests. Lovely garden with sunny and shady areas. I saw a... More

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
