Located in the heart of the Marina District, between Fillmore and Lombard. Centrally located in a bustling and crowded neighborhood with restaurants, bars, shops and public transportation within walking distance. One …Moremile away from Fisherman's Wharf or 25 min. walking distance.One block away is the Bus 30: takes you to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, China Town and Union Square. It is safe to walk and bike everywhere in the neighborhood. A few blocks away you will find a Bike Rental shop for $20.00 a day. It is just a few miles away from the Golden Gate Bridge and beaches.

Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Each guest is allowed to park one car per room and we guarantee you can park on our private parking lot. All our guest cars will never park on the street. We do not guarantee a parking space and is on first come first serve. In case all the parking spaces are taken, you will need to double park the car and leave the keys at the front desk upon check in and it will be moved when there is a parking space available which only happens when all our guests comes with a car.
However, we strongly recommend not to come with a car to San Francisco because of heavy congestion and very expensive parking fees in the city. It is highly recommended to rent a car upon departure instead of parking your car during your stay.
San Francisco offers public transportation, well organized bus system, Uber/Lyft and taxi. Also many places are within walking distance from the hotel. There are a few buses going to the main tourist attractions and only a block away from Chelsea.
Many restaurants and boutique shops are within also within walking distance.
