Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco, California

San Francisco (CNN) — An icon of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Golden Gate Bridge is more than a means for drivers to cross between the city of San Francisco and Marin County to the north.

A grand presence in California since it first opened after four years of construction in 1937 at a cost of $27 million, the bridge has made its appearance in film (“The Maltese Falcon” and “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”) and poetry (“The Changing Light” by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti) and contributed to local folklore.

Environmentalists, rejoice – not all new hotels mean the destruction of what’s come before. Just ask Rob Wallace of Architectural Resources Group, whose latest project, Lodge at the Presidio, takes this design maxim to heart: “When a building is re-adapted for use, it’s much greener than building new.”

Bearing the distinction of the closest lodging facility to the Golden Gate Bridge, the historic Lodge at the Presidio has been fully renovated and is now open to guests.

Guests enjoy contemporary interior design, original art and views of the bridge and the 300-acre Presidio forest.

After nearly three years of construction and anticipation, the Lodge at the Presidio opens its doors Thursday.

Once part of the Montgomery Street Barracks, which were built at the end of the 1800s to house infantry, artillery, and calvary companies, the new boutique stay is an opportunity to shack up in one of the Presidio’s 470 structures listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, which incidentally also has panoramic views of the lush 300-acre forest, the San Francisco Bay, skyline and, of course, that big red bridge, which can be seen from most of the 42 guest rooms.

San Francisco Chronicle – SF’s Newest Hotel May Have The Best View In Town

San Francisco Chronicle Features Lodge at the Presidio

When it opens next week, San Francisco’s newest lodging will offer rooms with a well-stocked minibar, USB charging ports and contemporary styling. And a view that’s never been seen before by hotel guests.

Until now, the view had been reserved for soldiers. The Lodge at the Presidio is the result of the federal Presidio Trust taking a pair of 123-year-old Army barracks and turning the insides into a modern, 42-room boutique hotel. The Lodge opens to guests on June 28 but has begun taking reservations.
