We stayed two nights at the Stanyan Park Hotel while visiting friends in the area and with the goal of exploring Golden Gate Park by bikes that we rented on nearby Haight Street. We wanted a unique walkable location in the city where we could get a sense of the neighborhoods and see the non touristy San Francisco.
The hotel on first glance had a slightly dated decor inside, but we had a charming "cupola" room with a flat screen TV, good water pressure, a large comfortable bed (which felt more like king than queen), and a seating area for us to entertain our friends. It was very comfortable and met all our needs. The staff was especially helpful, and stored our bikes overnight in their luggage storage area so we didn't have to keep them on the street (where it got a little shady at night). It had the feel of an old time hotel, with many more rooms than a converted house or B & B, but it was still small and personal.
The location next to Golden Gate Park can't be beat for a bike vacation. A ride from here to Sausalito across the Golden Gate bridge was a highlight of the trip! We weren't into the enduring hippy scene on parts of Haight street, but we found some charming neighborhoody restaurants on nearby Cole street. Of our two days one had great sunny weather and the other was gray, but I gather Haight-Ashbury is typically one of the foggier parts of the city, in more ways than one!
