Castro's 4 boutique hotels within walking distance of happy hour

There's nothing the modern traveler loves more than convenient locations and affordable accommodatons. And when visiting San Francisco, you'll want to take note of these hospitable gayborhood gems.

While SF's Castro is a destination from near and far — and even more than a few staycations — there are very few places to actually sleep nearby because it's mostly a residential area rather than a business district.

Luckily, we've found these local hotels that are a mere walking distance after happy hour. Say goodbye to "Can you host?" and hello to "My hotel is across the street."

Looking for a place to rest that might be a car ride away and offer a touch more luxe? Fear not.

Here's a a fuller list of LGBTQ-friendly San Francisco hotels.
