Located in the heart of San Francisco, The Payne Mansion is among the most beautiful buildings in the city. Built in 1881, it remains a striking example of classic Victorian design and exquisite craftsmanship. It has been meticulously transformed into a luxury boutique hotel that offers guests modern, high-end amenities while retaining the original charm and detail that makes this 130 year old building a true gem.
In addition to serving as a luxury hotel, The Payne Mansion boasts a stunning full-floor event space on its ground level. Complete with high ceilings, marble floors, mahogany woodwork in the walls and staircase, and crystal chandeliers all make for a romantic, elegant, and truly one-of-a-kind experience.
The space is ideal for weddings, corporate events and retreats, cocktail receptions, conferences, and more. It features a fully equipped kitchen that can handle virtually any catering needs. The dining area comfortably accommodates 175 seated, or 400 for a cocktail reception. For more exclusive events, we also offer a VIP room on the floor below the main event space. The VIP Club area holds about 70 people comfortably and can be rented out until 2am. The entire building – including the 10 guest rooms – may be rented out in its entirety, which makes the Payne Mansion a popular choice for weddings, corporate retreats, and other large events.
The Payne Mansion Hotel features 10 gorgeous rooms including 2 Presidential Suites, 2 Junior Suites, 2 King Deluxe Rooms, and 4 Standard Rooms. Each spacious room boasts top of the line amenities including luxurious pillow top mattresses and private bathrooms fully stocked with L'Occitane toiletries.

Guests also have access to a full range of services including same day wash-n-fold laundry, and on-demand car service through iCar.
