Accessibility (A Note to Wheelchair Users)
Our small hotel, originally constructed in 1913, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Contributing Building in the Lower Nob Hill Apartment Hotel District. While it is a beautiful, historic building, an evaluation survey done by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) concluded that the Golden Gate Hotel was designed and built in such a way that it is not technically feasible to eliminate the front steps at the entrance or provide an alternative, compliant means of access for those who use wheelchairs. We regret that we cannot serve you.
