Staying here was what made our vacation to San Francisco so great. The Parker house is clean and beautiful. The staff was very friendly and kind. And the other guest were also so enjoyable to meet. I will be back to stay on next trip to San Francisco.

We stayed at the Parker for five nights in June 2013. We arrived late and it was a bit awkward finding our room but we managed. The guest house consists of two houses side-by-side with a nice garden in between. We were in the second house on the lower level in a standard king room. I found the room to...

The Parker Guest House was recommended to us by a friend who lives in San Francisco. We were not disappointed. Very friendly staff, from arrival to checkout. Rooms were well appointed, and very clean. We had a room at the front of the "new house", which had it's own private outside sitting area and gate to the street. Very convenient....

Our room was nice enough and the location was excellent. The staff was great and we felt very comfortable. It is within walking distance of the Castro, Church St. Area, MUNI, and BART. The gardens in the house were beautiful and the house itself was very well maintained. One of the hotels best features is its clientele. A very sophisticated...

I have stayed at the Parker Guest House 3 times now and it will continue to be my place of choice to stay on future trips to San Francisco. The beautifully appointed interior and spacious garden area make it a real oasis in the middle of the city. I used to live in SF and the location has the added...

We have stayed at the Parker Guest House a number of times. It is a great alternative to staying in large impersonal hotels in the crowded areas of San Francisco. The staff at the Guest House make you feel welcome from the time you enter till the moment you leave. They are extremely attentive, and on this last stay the...

A stay at Parker Guest House is always a treat. Clean, efficient & friendly...almost like a home away from home. The staff always makes me feel like family, and I've been staying there for almost 10 years.

The only negative comment I could possibly have is that we didn't have the time to stay longer. The house was immaculate and full of very interesting decorations and furnishings at every turn. Every staff member we met had a smile and a great attitude. This will be our #1 choice for future trips to the area.

When my partner and I picked the Parker Guest house it was about location at first and how close it was to the Castro / Mission Dolores district. From the time we checked in until the last day we checked out, the staff and accommodations were WONDERFUL. Scott and Darin were wonderful !!! The place was beautifully decorated and very...

Staying in The Castro

Neighbourhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theatres 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.
