My wife and I decided to take a leap of faith and stay at a B and B for a romantic weekend instead of staying at a chain hotel. It was an excellent decision! John and Joan were fabulous hosts. It really felt like we were a guest in there home rather than staying at hotel for a night. The...

We (11 friends from high school--Class of 1960) chose The Parsonage for a second time for our annual get together. This Victorian home is a treasure. Morning starts with a delicious, gourmet breakfast. It's a museum with wonderful furniture and art. Bottom line--all of your senses will be treated to a wonderful experience at this San Francisco treasure. Joan and...

Arriving in San Francisco for the last three days of a very successful two week California vacation, our expectations of The Parsonage were high. They did not disappoint. The beautiful Victorian (in a great neighbourhood called Hayes Valley) is run by two well travelled and very charming hosts (Joan and John). The room we stayed in was spacious and beautifully...

Recently had my third stay at The Parsonage, and I look forward to the next time. Joan and John take exquisite care top to bottom, from the aesthetic pleasures of artwork, fine linens and bathrobes, pitch-perfect morning coffee, and the freshest breakfast eggs! Joan also cheerfully provided assistance with recommending car service from the airport and late hour neighborhood restaurant...

John and Joan are generous hosts with a beautiful home, converted into an inn with added character. If that sounds slightly quirky, so it should, with the best of classical San Francisco taste, just like their breakfasts, which deserve a separate write-up by a foodie. I was visiting on business, but their inn put me in the mood for taking...

We stayed at this beautiful B&B for four nights. The house is magnificent and old with all sorts of history. It is very well cared for and is in a great location. Our hosts are just an adorable couple and they are pretty well always there if you require any information or help about where to go and what to...

Thanks so much for your kind words. While some street noise is inevitable -- the price we pay for such a central location in a great transportation hub. For your next visit... please know that we are putting in double-pane windows as we are able and that the bus route is being changed. We expect that this will reduce the...

I have been visiting San Francisco since the late 1970's. The Parsonage has been my primary base of operations since the early 1990's with most visits being leisure in nature. The accommodations are consistently excellent. The breakfast are great obviously prepared with care and intention. The beds are truly sublime and the hosts, Joan and John, always helpful especially with...

I was so impressed by the Parsonage. What a gem of a place. The hosts, Joan and John, are extremely gracious and seem honestly pleased to have you stay in their home. Breakfasts are elegant and delicious. The room was comfortable and quiet. Got a great night's sleep. An added plus to the Parsonage is the fact that city buses...

We recently returned to The Parsonage Bed & Breakfast in San Francisco after a hiatus of several years. I remembered it as being a wonderful, welcoming experience but I had forgotten just how special a place it is. It's a GRAND Victorian in the grandest sense and appointed with care and exquisite taste but the surprise is just how cozy...

This was our second return trip to The Parsonage and now we think we will try to make it an annual event. The grace of the hosts is matched by the elegance of the inn. At the end of the day we were grateful for the quiet and charm that can not be replicated by a chain hotel. Our attentive...

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
