in a good location, the Hayes Valley is a fun spot for eating and partying. The beds are very comfortable and quiet location for great sleep. Close to bus lines and the front desk is very helpful for locating whatever you want to see in San Francisco. The European Breakfast buffet is in a beautiful room decorated just like one...

Right in the heart of downtown. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Close to the BART lines. Smallish rooms, but well kept. Mini kitchen. Would definitely stay there next time in San Francisco.

An old fashioned hotel/inn some 150 yards away from the SF Opera. Very charming reception with apples and cookies, bringing the luggage to our room and refusing a tip. Rooms old fashioned but cosy. Elegant restaurant, visited by many elegantly dressed opera goers. Reasonably priced.

A great boutique hotel. Our room was a little on the smaller side based on other hotel rooms I've stayed in, but I didn't see any of the other rooms at the Inn to compare. I stayed with my youngster daughter, and it was perfectly cozy. The elevator broke down the first night we were there, and this was about...

We've stayed at the Inn at the Opera before since we are Shell Vacation members, but this is the first time we've stayed in the deluxe 1 room suite (or "Opera" suite). Since we had our 2 small kids with us, it was PERFECT! It was basically a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite, but instead of a bed in 1 room,...

I stayed at Inn at the Opera during Christmas week and it couldn't have been more pleasant. The hotel is charming, warm, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and efficient and the amenities make the hotel very homey. They serve a nice breakfast every morning and cookies in the afternoon. The rooms have a fridge and microwave and bathrobes, two...

We spent two nights at this hotel which is part of our timeshare. Both days we took cabs to go to our destinations. The front desk summoned cabs with amazing promptness. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite which was quite spacious for a room in San Francisco. The hotel was very quiet and nice. The furnishing...

I am glad to hear that you had an overall enjoyable stay with us, and wanted to thank you and wish you the best for the New Year!. I am aware of the "hit or miss" baseboard heating system, and it is one of projects we are working on to fix this year. We do hope to see you again...

If you love history and the genteel ways of the past, then you will certainly enjoy your stay at the Inn at the Opera. From the gentle creak of the wooden floors in the lobby to the small old-fashioned elevator, there's much to appreciate. Although, I would have preferred a slightly larger bed, our suite was spacious, as was the...

we spent 3 days there on our way to Lake Tahoe for a week. Rooms are small- even in the suites, but very comfortable and excellent service. Walking distance to everywhere- and close to transportation centers for everything else. Breakfast was better than expected.

We stayed at the Inn at the Opera a few days before Christmas to see The Nutcracker at the War Memorial Opera House. We could not have chosen a better location!

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
