Accessibility (A Note to Wheelchair Users)
Our small hotel, originally constructed in 1913, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Contributing Building in the Lower Nob Hill Apartment Hotel District. While it is a beautiful, historic building, an evaluation survey done by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) concluded that the Golden Gate Hotel was designed and built in such a way that it is not technically feasible to eliminate the front steps at the entrance or provide an alternative, compliant means of access for those who use wheelchairs. We regret that we cannot serve you.
Breakfast and Tea
When searching for hotels in San Francisco with free breakfast, look no further than the Golden Gate Hotel. Each morning a complimentary breakfast of fresh croissants and reputedly the City’s strongest coffee and brewed tea are served in the downstairs Parlor. There is a cheerful buzz about the service creating a warm café atmosphere– a civilized start to the day. Guests love trading tips and stories of the previous day’s adventures across the breakfast table.
The Golden Gate Hotel is one of the more charming pet friendly hotels in San Francisco Union Square. We welcome well-behaved pets with the appropriate vet certification. Pets must not be left alone in the room while the guest is away from the hotel. Pets must also be friendly towards humans and other pets.
Dogs must be on a leash when outside of the room, state law.
In loving memory of our “Cookie” we no longer impose a pet fee. She enjoyed greeting our guests upon their arrival, loved a belly rub, and was keen to be front and center in the breakfast parlor for any tidbits.
Visit our reservation page for further information regarding our pet policy.
There aren’t too many San Francisco hotels with breakfast that offer as many amenities as we do at the Golden Gate Hotel. Our 23 guest rooms are delightfully decorated with antiques, wicker and original art. Many bathrooms still have the original Claw-foot Tubs and antique “Pillbox” commodes. And each of these rooms includes a hair dryer for your use.
Enjoy our “free” High-Speed WiFi throughout the Golden Gate Hotel.
Our guests may choose between rooms having a private bathroom “en suite” with either one double Queen-size bed or two single Twin beds”. Or, our “European Style” rooms which have a standard Full bed for two, a small wash- stand in the room and the shower and toilet separate, shared “down the hall”.
