All That San Francisco Charm


Sit back and unwind in the heart of the city.

Let’s pretend for a moment that you get to live in San Francisco. You’d probably like it if the neighborhood were hilly, restaurants were within walking distance, and the green sprawl of a park were a mere jog away. Welcome to your new ZIP code in Pacific Heights at The Laurel Inn.


The hotel is small enough to feel like a collection of urban studios—some with panoramic views of the city—and you? Just like a local with a kitchenette stocked up with goods, like housemade granola from Ella’s or baked bread from Swank. Despite the cozy apartment feel, The Laurel Inn is a hotel. That means those special touches when you need them: coffee and a newspaper first thing, lemonade and cookies in the afternoon, and a movie library for good flicks for foggy evenings. And the most coveted perk of all: parking.


Tell people you’re shacking up in Pacific Heights, though, and you might suddenly find yourself with a lot of San Francisco friends. Life is sweet here, convenient to the University of San Francisco but also the historic Presidio, known for its free Art Hikes that happen monthly. On them, you’ll get views of Andy Goldsworthy’s famous structures, Spire (2008), Wood Line (2010), Tree Fall (2013), and Earth Wall (2014).

Also within the park are the Walt Disney Museum, an archeology lab open to the public on certain days, and the Officers’ Club Heritage Gallery with special exhibits. This is a hidden side of San Francisco that many don’t get to explore. The Laurel Inn will be the launchpad of your discovery.
