My 3rd stay at The Parker. I always seek out quirky character unusual places to stay when I travel as it so enhances my enjoyment of the trip . Travelling solo I often have a late start or an early evening so it’s a MUST to have nice digs ( Aussie term for where u sleep) Super special “boutique” hotel my room full of sun and light super spacious ( room 24) gorgeous linen great kitchen dining healthy breakfast included big sitting room a fire piano welcoming touch the drinks and nibbles for guests at 6 pm. Great neighbourhood Delores Park Castro and Mission I LOVE THE PARKER !

We had a great stay. Everyone on the staff was quick to respond to our questions and requests knowledgeably, efficiently and with good humor. Room was lovely and well-appointed. Charming garden, especially when lit up at night. Good breakfast. And cocktail hour! Thank you Parker Guest House for making a night in SF so memorable.

Had a wonderful stay at the Parker Guest House. My husband and I were in San Francisco to visit our son who lives just down the street. The location was very convenient to our son as well as many restaurants and the BART. The beds were comfortable and there were plentiful linens. The continental breakfast was perfect for us allowing us to have our coffee/tea and a bite to eat before heading out for the day. The staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful. We plan to stay there again the next time we visit our son.

This was our second stay. The place is charming, with lovely areas to sit and chat both indoors by the fireplace and outdoors in the garden. The staff are pleasant, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The location is convenient to restaurants, shops, and public transportation. We are already planning to return.

This place was a GREAT spot for a solo traveler! So a few key things: 1. The location is great. Right next to the Mission and the Castro, so lots of food and drinks nearby. 2. The room was comfortable and clean. 3. The wine social/fireside time was fun. 4. Public transit is right there and parking was (SF) affordable. The area was safe. 5. Very nice garden/outdoor space if the weather is nice. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the price was in line with a hotel stay with a far better experience. I definitely will stay again next time I’m in SF.

The Parker Guest House continues to be our favorite place to stay in San Francisco. It's always quiet, welcoming, and homey- feels like visiting a friend with an amazing beautiful historic home. As a bed and breakfast, they serve pastries, yogurt, eggs and cereal in the morning, and coffee and tea are always available in the kitchen (included). The staff are friendly and unobtrusive. The rooms have robes and their bathroom products are still high (or normal) quality, unlike many hotels that seem to be in a race to the bottom. On our last visit, however, we were a bit uncomfortable because the rooms tend to be on the colder side. It would have been helpful to know that a portable heater is provided in every room, but we weren't informed, even when we told a staff member we were cold. (Another staff member clarified that we should have been notified of the portable heater, as did the owner when I notified her of this oversight, so hopefully this means they're constantly improving their service.) I'd still recommend. Just be sure to bring warm and comfortable layers for sleeping.

Defiantly a 5 star experience. We are here for just one night and have been so comfortable and happy with all the warm elements the Parker Guest House to offer. Breakfast was fantastic. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud with very soft cozy sheets. Can’t wait to come back.

The Parker House is a lovely retreat with elegant rooms and beautiful gardens. There is breakfast in the sunroom room to start the day and wine and hors d’oeuvres at days end. The managers and staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying there.

This place was lovely! Beautiful common areas, felt cozy and clean. Lots of options for the breakfast. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I chose this b&b for the location, which was also great - very close to Dolores Park. Would definitely come back!

The Parker Guest House is lovely! Your stay includes a large kitchen where coffee and tea are always brewing, a full-complement continental breakfast and a wonderful late-afternoon wine hour, with hors d'oeuvres. We enjoyed both, every day. There were cushy, quiet living rooms and a lovely patio and backyard garden with cozy seating. The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff could not be more accommodating. We will definitely return on our next trip to San Francisco!
