We had a late arrival on Friday night and was met by Scott at the front gate and he was most welcoming. After a brief tour of the property he showed us to our room which was in the 2nd house on the ground floor. ( Luckily as we had been travelling for a month and suitcases were heavy and Scott was helping us with them getting up the stairs).
The room was spacious and managed to fit a trundle bed for when my cousin joined us for the last 2 nights of our stay. The breakfast was great and plenty to choose form and was always being replenished for those coming to breakfast at little later in the morning. The 2nd house also has a kitchen in which you can make your own tea/ coffee or take a tray for breakfast and have there if there is no room in the main house.
The location was great and easy to get downtown on the F BRAT straight up Church street to Market st. A few blocks either side had plenty of restaurants to choose from. We enjoyed the Castro district and the history of the Gay community visiting the museum and the Harvey Milk sights.
The Parker was recommend to us by our travel agent and we will be advising her to recommend all clients visiting San Fransico should be staying at the Parker.
We thank all staff for a great stay ( especially Scott)

From the moment we walked through the front door we felt welcomed. The guest house was beautiful and quant. Our room was clean, tastefully decorated and provided mordern amentities that are expected. The breakfast was amazing! Fresh and delicious. The location was fair but a bit disconnected from the airport subway route. It was close to the street car which takes you down to the wharf and union square. The Castro district was great--good night life closeby but the neighborhood felt safe. Such a great stay and perfect for us while we were on our honeymoon! More than we'd normally pay for accomm but considering the special occasion it seemed worth the splurge. It felt like we saw value returned to us with every dollar spent.

The Parker Guest House is truly a beautiful place to stay. The location is amazing, the building/architecture are wonderfully maintained, and the staff are extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful (particularly Scott who was always attentive to guest's needs). They serve a delicious continental breakfast every morning, which you can take in the gorgeous breakfast/sun room. They also serve wine and cheese every evening. The guest house has a wealth of common space available to the traveler. In addition to the breakfast room and the huge kitchen with dining table, there is a beautiful living room with a baby grand piano and fire place, which is nice on a chilly evening. Lastly, there is a lovely back garden and a couple of decks/verandas to sit out on if the weather holds....it is also just a block from Delores Park, maybe 5 blocks from the Castro, and has a train line just on the corner. This did not bother me at all even though I had a front facing room, but I am from NYC where it is regularly loud. If this is a concern, then simply ask for one of the many back facing rooms that the house has. I can't say how wonderful my experience was, and would highly recommend it to anyone going to San Francisco.

My wife and I recently stayed at The Parker Guest House. We were extremely pleased with the hospitality and helpfulness provided by all of the innkeepers. Although the room we booked was small, it had all the amenities we come to expect when staying at a highly rated B&B. For us, the location was a big plus, a short drive to my in-laws in Noe Valley, and plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the inn. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Larger rooms are available but we booked at the last minute, so they weren't available.
