What a wonderful place to stay. My girls and I were enthralled. The staff were kind and welcoming, and were very helpful with advice and directions. Our room was super-clean and comfortable, with special touches like complimentary chocolates and nice soaps. The bathroom was enormous and the hot shower was blissful! Breakfast was delicious and generous, from oatmeal and cereals... More

What a way to end a vacation! Style, panache and some of the friendliest staff in the business. The evening we spent at the Parker Guest House was some of the best money we spent all holiday. The accommodation was charming, the decor magnificent and the hospitality beyond reproach. Enjoy a fine breakfast, help yourself to a choice of candy,... More

OK, so I'm totally in love with this Bed and Breakfast situated in the Castro District, bordering on the Mission area. I spent ten days there in August and returned on Saturday. The buildings are cute, Edwardian buildings in a wonderful yellow. The ride from the airport was very quick, check in was smooth (as was the reservation process by... More

Wow. I almost don't want to write this for fear that it'll help make it so popular I can't get a reservation the next time! From start to finish this place exceeded my expectations. The house is an easy block and a half walk from Dolores Park and a comfortable walk from the Castro. Access to Muni is also at... More

We loved our stay in the Parker House. Very well maintained and set up. The area is safe and within easy walking distance of various transport, food, and sight options. Excellent continental breakfast with yummy pastries, yogurt, cereals, and fresh fruit. The one social hour and brandy at night were great. Many international travelers, mostly gay, and some straight.

Very nice place to stay in San Francisco! Also a highlight of our trip. Very clean rooms with the daily "Ferrero Rocher" and nice breakfast. Brandy at the fireplace after dinner was also appreciated in those "cold" summer days...

Our four-night stay at The Parker was a fantastic end to our west coast tour. We mostly spoke with Scott, who was incredibly helpful and welcoming throughout our stay. The house is beautiful and done up to a very high spec, and the location in The Castro is ideal - lots of great restaurants/shops nearby, but without the crush of... More

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!

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.
