Catch some Z’s by the Golden Gate Bridge

The tree-lined Presidio now has a plush new perch: the elegant Lodge at the Presidio, a 42-room hotel inside reworked Colonial Revival-style barracks. The former mess hall and regimental offices have been adapted by designer Laura Cook, in partnership with the Presidio Trust, into a military-inspired lobby and guest rooms, with a courtyard overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. A short ride on the hotel’s complimentary bikes offers a closer look at the city skyline and lush 300-acre forest just beyond the Lodge’s original brick walls. From $275/night. 105 Montgomery St., S.F., 415-561-1234; lodgeatthepresidio.com.
