Inn at the Presidio is located at historic Pershing Hall on the Main Post, the “heart of the Presidio.” In the U.S. Army days, the Main Post was the Presidio’s social and administrative center. Today, it is a cultural gathering place and where most park visits begin.

Built in 1903, the elegant Georgian Revival-style building was once home to unmarried officers (their married counterparts lived nearby in the Victorian cottages along Officers’ Row, the oldest intact streetscape in San Francisco). It was named for General John J. “Black Jack” Pershing who served at the Presidio of San Francisco and who became commander of the American Expeditionary Force in France during World War I. The building later was a Visiting Officers’ Quarters until the Army’s departure in 1994. Pershing Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2011, the Presidio Trust completed a historic rehabilitation of Pershing Hall, transforming it into the park’s first lodge, Inn at the Presidio. The interior design celebrates the Presidio’s rich past with artisan details and Presidio memorabilia, complemented by comfortable, contemporary furnishings. The art program is an important feature of the Inn. Historic photographs and contemporary regional art bring to life the Inn’s past and its beautiful natural surroundings.

The Inn’s daily operations are conducted with environmentally-sensitive practices in mind.
In addition to elegant room accommodations, the Inn features an inviting front port with rocking chairs, a dining room for breakfast and evening receptions, and an outdoor deck with a fire pit. The Inn is an ideal starting point to experience the history and beauty of the Presidio, including miles of hiking trails, public events, cultural destinations, and wild open spaces.
