We had the absolute best one-night stay at The Inn San Francisco! It is such a beautiful building and very historic, and we enjoyed the family atmosphere. The woman at the front desk was so friendly and lovely, and even upgraded our room for the evening at no charge. Not to mention, the breakfast was a great touch and we loved the area - so much to walk to! Highly recommend and would love to stay here again.

Inn San Francisco is a hospitable and welcoming place. 24 hour tea, coffee, snacks, and a plentiful breakfast are provided. There's a spacious old parlor with good seating for reading or planning your day and a nice garden in the back. It's a vintage building which means lots of character and a few squeaky doors. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Fantastic stay at this authentic Victorian. Staff was incredibly nice, breakfast spread was far better than any hotel, complementary port/sherry in the evening, and a roof deck with amazing views of the city. 10/10 would stay here again.
