My husband and I needed emergency accommodations in SF, and we immediately thought of the Golden Gate Hotel, where we had stayed on a previous visit. They accommodated us with warmth and concern for our situation. We stayed the first three nights in a room with a shared bath, which proved to be just like staying at a friends house...

We are two adults who traveled with two children. The Golden Gate Hotel guaranteed us connecting room -- a rarity in San Francisco. The adults had privacy and also got to keep an eye on the kids. The hotel is charming and friendly. Highly recommend.

I loved this little boutique hotel/B and B. It has a wonderful feel the minute you walk in. The staff is very accommodating and they make you feel instantly at home. The great surprise is the antique elevator that works perfectly but takes you back fifty or so years. I absolutely loved the elevator with its beautiful engravings. I can...

Loved our stay here. It was so nice to step away from hotels and get the personal touch of a B&B. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly, we felt right at home with a nice cup of tea and cookies. We had a room with shared bathroom, we never had to wait to use and always felt clean....

I stayed here on a recent business trip, and made my decision based on price. I admit I was nervous before I got there -- how could a place with this location stay so affordable? This place exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and very well kept. It was also quiet and welcoming. Tucked in-between larger buildings, this 4...

I arrived mid-evening after a long trip. The lovely gentleman at reception took my bag up to my room then delivered a pot of hot tea and home-baked biscuits. This made me very happy indeed – that and the upgrade on the room. Thank you very much! The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in and the shower was...

My daughter and I spent three days at this cosy, charming boutique hotel that is very well located near the prime San Francisco shopping district of Union Square. This was my first visit to San Francisco and I will always remember it for its beautiful bridge, fantastic shopping, multiple sights, and the Golden Gate Hotel. We had a room with...

This is a really nice peaceful place to return to after a hectic day in the city. Close to cable car and Bart. The room is well equipped and very comfortable and tastefully decorated.
