We loved the wood floors, the yard, the kitchen, and the room. Very close to 16th St Mission BART station and great restaurants. They provided a space heater and extra blankets just in case. The staff was very friendly and we'll stay again.

My husband and I decided to visit Northern California for our 10th anniversary. I wanted to stay at a place that was unique and this definitely was. The house is beautiful and the staff friendly. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was plentiful. I'd stay there again.

It didn't take us long into our four nights in SF to know that we had picked a fabulous place to stay. The well located old SF building is beautiful, the staff were wonderful, our room comfortable, and the buffet continental breakfasts fresh and wholesome. The evening wine and nibbles topped it all off.

What an effective AND lovely business week I just completed, compliments of the absolutely lovely Parker Guest House and staff! With business at Moscone, I had little interest in hanging downtown in off hours and Parker Guest House was the best solution for lovely down time in a fun and hip area I'd yet to explore. Just half a block...

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.
