Since its inception in 1904, the Red Victorian has been a cornerstone of the Upper Haight and a gathering place for revolutionaries, artists and travelers. This historic building was an important meeting place through the Summer of Love, housing political protests, hippie movements, and Sami Sunchild's artwork, creativity, and conversations around creating world peace. The hotel was leased by a new group and renovated in the summer of 2014.The current group remains committed to providing an inspiring space for our guests, residents, and neighbors alike.
