The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.

Parker Guest House is pretty hotel. Staffs are nice. The room that I stayed was smaller than I imagined by picture. Wine social and breakfast was not enough for me. Iocatef place is very convenient. It is walking distance to Castro street. There is nice cafe within 3 min walk.

Can't say enough good things about Parker Guest House. I was there on business but can see it would be the perfect place to stay for business and leisure travelers. The location was great - in Mission which is one of the best areas of SF (in my opinion). Rooms were beautiful,

I would agree with WaterBrid. Call the staff who are very accommodating and explain that it's for your honeymoon. I enjoyed my stay there because of the beautiful building , friendly staff and location with plenty of interesting small restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast was good too.

That price is for a parking space. No such price is available for a room. Best room prices are found on our website. We are offering a winter mid-week promotion for stays up through March 21st. We have a very popular property and hope you will book with us. Thanks.

"There are two buildings, both restored.i stayed downstairs in the original building which was easy for breakfast access. Shared bathroom"
"All rooms seem great, however the quieter rooms are towards the back of the property."
"Higher floors have better view"
"Rooms at the back are quieter than those at the front. Some rooms are en suite and some are shared bathrooms."
"Nothing really to avoid but I am used to the main building where the breakfast takes place and the second floor rather than the basement."
US$220 - US$305 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
