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.
Once a part of the Montgomery Street Barracks complex built to house U.S. Army artillery companies, infantry and Calvary troops 1895–1897, the property has 42 rooms spread over three stories. Guests enjoy contemporary interior design, original art and views of the bridge and the 300-acre Presidio forest.
Historic features have been carefully preserved, including the building’s military history as an enlisted men’s barracks. Two grand staircases were restored to their original glory, including one hidden for years behind modern walls. In a storage space on the third floor, guests can see exposed brick and an original wall sign stenciled with the words “Maximum Occupancy Five Men.”
