Inn at Presidio

Last updated: 04 May, 2023

Putting San Francisco’s historic Presidio on the map as a stand-alone destination when it opened in 2012, the Inn at the Presidio places visitors right in the heart of this former military-post-turned-national park.

The three-story boutique property is an exquisite adaptive reuse of Pershing Hall, once a home for bachelor officers. A Georgian Revival-style structure, it features 22 contemporary guestrooms (many with fireplaces), a front porch adorned with rocking chairs for admiring the surrounding scenery, and an outdoor firepit.

Green-certified and a Historic Hotel of America, the inn’s nightly wine-and-cheese reception is a favourite. The Golden Gate Bridge is particularly close-by, as are many of the Park’s best walking trails – and there are complimentary bikes for exploring too.

While you're there

Right behind the hotel is the ‘Ecology Trail‘, one of the Presidio park’s best walking trails. This lovely 1.4-mile walk takes you through a variety of wildlife-filled habitats leading to a superb viewpoint looking over the bay. There’s an occasional giant redwood, and even hummingbirds.

The Inn’s sister property, the Lodge at the Presidio, opened in 2018 and is the closest hotel in San Francisco to the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s just steps from the newly opened Tunnel Tops which is a new area in the Presidio comprised of 14 acres of stunning parkland built over tunnels. The Lodge offers similar amenities as the Inn including an outdoor firepit (this one has great bridge views), complimentary breakfast, a complimentary wine/cheese reception each night, bicycles, and more.
