Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.

As you may have seen our lot is about 15 spaces.. and it is first come first serve, there are a few places to park near us, but specifically there is a public parking a block over its about $15 for entire night it closes at 12 and opens around 7. However AFTER 6 you can park on the street til 9 am in morning for free and the front desk can help you with that when you check in. Thanks for the question!
