The Premises 

In the middle of a forested national park, The Lodge at the Presidio is an army outpost that’s now a boutique red-brick barracks. The Golden Gate looms large in every backdrop, whether you’re by the fire-pit, out on the lawn or in your room (if you’ve booked it wisely) – this is the closest lodging to the supersize rust-coloured steel structure in all of California. Shuttles run back and forth to downtown San Fran, but there’s 1,500 acres of woodland, trails, beaches and restaurants to get through first. At the lodge, pay homage to the soldiers who used to sleep here by admiring their likenesses in the artworks adorning the walls, or see if you can spot the marks the armoury left on the original wooden floors.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: 11am, but flexible, subject to availability. Earliest check-in, 3pm.
Rates usually include breakfast, along with local wine, cheese and charcuterie parties between 5pm and 7pm each evening.


Board games to borrow, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: air-conditioning, minibar, free bottled water, tea and coffee kit, and EO bath products.


There’s a 1,500-acre park on your doorstep: if you want to fit in, pack that suitcase with all the Lululemon activewear it can handle.


All ages are welcome. There are rooms with two queen-size beds that are perfect for families. Some rooms have child-friendly sofa beds, too.


The hotel recycles, composts and uses eco-friendly cleaning products and light bulbs.


The hotel is accessible for wheelchair users and there are specially adapted rooms available.
The lodge is set in the Montgomery Street Barracks, which were built between 1895 and 1897, and were once one of the biggest garrisons in the country.


Suspension-bridge fans who’ve come to admire their holy grail should book a Golden Gate-facing room (obviously). We also loved Room 113, for its veranda access and sunrise-ready spot.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no restaurant at the lodge, but the park does have a handful of restaurants within strolling distance. Bagels and bakery goods are served in the dining room each morning.

Liquid Bliss 

There’s no bar at the lodge, but the minibar has a ready-to-raid stash of liquor and mixers.

Experience the Extraordinary 

You have a best-of-both kind of situation here: on the one hand, you have the endless acreage of the Presidio Park, and on the other, all the sights of San Francisco. The building itself has plenty of book-reading and board-game-playing potential, or you can wander around the grounds admiring the architecture. Hiking is the unofficial state pastime of California and here it comes with a side order of Golden Gate Bridge views: the Presidio has various trails, which you can walk, cycle and jog along. The Presidio Officers’ Club, which was inaugurated in 1776, is now the park’s official, free-to-enter museum – and, if you’re not a museum kinda guy, just go for the Mexican food. Crissy Field Beach is the perfect destination if you like your swims, cycles and seafront strolls to overlook that awesome feat of 1930s architecture, the Golden Gate. Marshall’s Beach gets you even closer.


The hotel is in the Presidio Park overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, close to the city but also within a forested, former-military-base setting.


San Francisco International Airport is 18 miles away from the lodge; the drive should take 45 minutes. Hotel transfers cost US$98 each way.


It’s about a 45-minute drive into the centre of San Francisco. The hotel car park costs US$10 a day (drop your bags off first). A car will come in handy if you’re planning to explore California’s coolest city and its curving coastline – but there’s a 1,500-acre national park to get through first if you’d rather stay put.
