The Presidio is one of San Francisco’s most dynamic neighborhoods. Once a significant military base, the Presidio is now a national park that is home to a lush 300-acre forest, a golf course, the Presidio Social Club, and now a new hotel, the Lodge at the Presidio. The property is a sister hotel to the Presidio’s other accommodations, the award-winning Inn at the Presidio.

For those who are tired of staying at hotels in SF’s crowded downtown, the Lodge at the Presidio is a beautiful alternative. The new three-story 42-room bed and breakfast occupies five identical barracks that were initially built in the late 1890s. The organization that oversees the Presidio, the Presidio Trust, spent three years meticulously working to reconstruct the buildings. Sustainability was crucial to the Trust, and the Lodge is LEED-certified with water-efficient plumbing and on-demand energy. Recycled jean scraps were used to insult roof and walls, and the original windows were restored with better weatherproofing.

Laura Cook of LC Interiors designed the lobby and guest rooms. The space is comfortable and contemporary with hints of the building’s past highlighted. Furniture and fabrics bring to mind America’s history and military details, like canvas headboards and ottomans made to resemble army duffels, dot the rooms. Julie Coyle Art Associates curated a museum-like art collection of photographs, found objects, and watercolors by local artist Lynn Sondag.
