The Parsonage has everything needed to make it an outstanding B&B - an interesting and beautiful landmark building, gracious and friendly hosts, attractive and comfortable rooms, wonderful food, and a location convenient to tourist and business destinations. As icing on the cake, Joan and John are genuinely helpful as well as friendly, and there is a elevator from the ground floor up to the rooms, not a usual amenity in a historic preservation site.

The Parsonage is a one of a kind Bed & Breakfast! We opted for a b&b instead of a hotel and this was our best vacation choice. Joan and John are wonderful hosts, not to mention amazing gourmet cooks. Who braises pears and serves them with pomegranate sauce and fresh blackberries? That was before the wonderful crepe served freshly prepared for my husband and self. The food was great, but our room was fabulous. In addition to our fluffy down bed, we had an antique day bed, loveseat and desk in our room with views of San Francisco’s City Hall and the Transamerica building. Our bathroom was marble and heated towels surprised even my husband. Our two night stay seemed like we were in the City for days. Upon leaving, Joan said “You always have a home in San Francisco.” I believe that— and we can’t wait to return.

The Parsonage is one of the best Bed & Breakfast locations that we have stayed in as we travel around the United States. The decor is beautiful with antiques throughout the home and in keeping with the historic beauty of the building. The guest rooms are comfortable and lovely with wonderful adjoining bathrooms. Joan and John are so welcoming and make you feel more like family than guests. John is a superb chef ,and each morning the breakfast is worth waking up for with a bowl of fresh fruit, coffee and tea at each place setting with the most beautiful china. Both Joan and John are extremely knowledgable about the city, restaurants, and events happening in their area and throughout San Francisco. Public transportation is a couple blocks away and Joan has many connections with private transportation companies to pick you up and deliver you to the airport or other destinations. I love their hospitality, have stayed there twice and will be there again next year. The pictures say it all.

Very convenient for business travelers (bus to the Financial District and Moscone Center stops outside the back gate). But it's the experience when I'm not working that I most love about The Parsonage--warm and witty hosts Joan and John; large, light-filled rooms; big, thick towels warmed on a towel warmer; a bit of brandy of an evening; the most comfortable beds with the most beautiful linens; a delectable full breakfast timed to get me wherever I need to be without a rush. All in all, a wonderful value--not the least expensive place, but worth every single penny.
