Without realising it we were in the best place to view the race as the Kiwis zoomed passed us with the Italians in pursuit then both boats went out of our view and a few minutes later the Kiwis emerged (the Italians still nowhere to be seen) heading towards the finish line which was right in front of us. After they crossed the finish line, they sailed passed the crowd and out sprung all the Kiwi flags waiving high ...

So of course I had to add to my growing book collection (apparently five books just isn’t enough to drag around the USA). I also got sucked into a kind of coffee shop vortex and ended up stopping at more in one day that I would usually visit in a year. Little Italy might as well be one ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Good value, pitty we had to pay for daily parking. Staying on the third floor was good as we had access to our own kitchen, the problem with that however was the fusion of smells in a confined space from other tenants kitchens. I would stay there again though.

Great little Hotel!
We enjoyed the safe neighborhood, the friendly staff, and the free parking! It was nice to have afternoon cookies and lemonade, and our dog Tootsie really enjoyed the dog cookies.
Beau Laurel Hill
A business trip to S.F. brought me to the Laurel Inn on Laurel Hill near the Presidio. A clean, well kept Inn with a pleasant,stylish design I greatly appre- ciated. The beautiful full moon over the city that evening, the quiet neighborhood, all relieved a busy day. I will assuredly return. Hopefully for pleasure and to explore the area.
Loved the Laurel Inn
My stay at the Laurel was a WONDERFUL experience. The staff was extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. They all went out of their way to help me in every way. The rooms were beautiful and spotless. The location was great, close to everything. I will be staying here again whenever I am in town and will tell everyone I know who travels to San Francisco what a great place The Laurel Inn is. They are very pet friendly also.
Loved the Laurel inn On Presidio Avenue
I stayed with my wife at the Laurel inn as we were traveling with our pet, they offered us excellent service; they were very courteous and they even has treats for my little yorshire. Not to metion that they offer "FREE PARKING" (hart to find in the city of San Francisco) and they also offer continental breakfast. The Laurel Inn is the best expericence we had in San Francisco. We definitely recommend anybody to stay there. They are the best!
Perfect choice !
the laurel inn was a prefect way to experience sf away from the congestion....the place was decorated so cool and we fell in love with (and made incredible love in) our little room! we have told all of our friends of our little get away spot but we hope that it doesn't get too "discovered"...whatever you guys are doing, keep on doing it...thanks to everyone there
My husband recently surprised me for my birthday with a 2 night stay at the Laurel Inn. When I walked into the lobby ( my husband was meeting me after work) I could not get over how tastefully decorated it was.
We were all impressed with the convenience since we had our 10-month old and a car. It was easy to maneuver us and all of our luggage from the parking lot to the lobby and to our room using the elevator. The room had a beautiful decor and the baby crib that we requested was there upon our arrival.
City experience for country folk
Traveling to San Francisco was an adventure for my husband and I. Lone Pine is a small town where you know almost everyone. But we were becoming grandparents, and needed to be in the City pronto. We stayed at the Laurel Inn for two nights. The staff was friendly, the room comfortable and the decor very artful. The only drawback was that our corner room was very noisy from the traffic. Later when we had time we read that earplugs were available. The Inn was convenient as we could walk to the hospital, could shop for baby books at a bookstore, and have a great choice of places to eat out. The Inn was only a $12.00 cab fare from the BART station. We will probably stay there again, asking this time for a room in a quieter location.
My husband and I recently stayed here for 3 nights and were very pleased with our experience. We were first placed in a room facing the street, which was really noisy - the windows aren't double-paned and there's a lot of construction going on directly across the street. The front desk was very accommodating and moved us to one of their quieter rooms on the 2nd night. The decor is clean and modern - much like a W Hotel - and the rooms are very spacious. The bathrooms are large; however, only have a shower stall - no tub. There's free parking onsite and one of the best breakfasts in town just next door at Ella's. When you reserve a room, be sure to call the hotel directly - they seem to frown upon web reservations for some reason, even through their own website (we were even told by the front desk that was the reason we were put in the street facing room on the first night). All in all, we would definitely stay here again.
The Laurel Inn offers a fine example of what can be done with simplicity. Combining an interesting mix of post-modern and Japanese (yeah, well it works anyhow), the rooms, while moderately sized, are comfortable and tasteful. The black walls and orchids in the elevator let you know you're in for some serious Design. From the black-and-white photos on the wall, to the kitchenette table painted to look like steel, to the simple counters and clever storage in the bathroom, the rooms provide a air of peace and tranquillity.
