“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
Nestled in the green parklands of the Presidio, this gorgeous historic inn inhabits a National Historic Landmark. Many rooms have Golden Gate Bridge views and gas fireplaces for foggy nights. The park offers all kinds of dining options and outdoor activities, from cycling to golf.

Built in 1903 and opened as a hotel in 2012, this two-story, Georgian Revival–style building served as officers' quarters in military days past and now has 26 guest rooms—17 of them suites—complete with gas fireplaces and modern-meets-salvage-store finds, such as wrought-iron beds, industrial-inspired task lamps, historic black-and-white photos, and Pendleton blankets. In 2013, the inn added the Funston House, which contains four rooms surrounding a common living room, dining room, and kitchen, ideal for larger groups traveling together and families. Perks include a nightly wine-and-cheese reception and a Continental breakfast buffet. This place is as homey as it gets, complete with rocking chairs on the porches and an outdoor fire pit. Numerous hiking and biking trails in the Presidio, a National Land Trust, are nearby.
