Historic boutique hotel in the heart of the Presidio national park
A woodsy alternative to downtown hotels, Inn at the Presidio is the first lodge in the former military base at the Golden Gate Bridge. The red-brick inn was originally built 1903 to house bachelor officers, and in 2010 was converted to a boutique B&B. Seventeen of the 22 oversized rooms are 530-square-foot one-bedroom suites, but even standard rooms are gigantic, and all look like a catalogue spread from Restoration Hardware, with distressed leather furniture and white-on-white damask sheets.
Some ground-floor rooms open straight on to a rocking-chair veranda; if you prefer total privacy, book the third floor, though there's no elevator. Outside is a wonderfully atmospheric firepit, views out onto the Golden Gate Bridge and 24 miles of hiking trails. The obvious drawback is the proximity to downtown: A taxi costs about $35, but free daytime shuttles get you there in 30 minutes. Trust us - waking up in this glorious national park more than compensates.
