The front desk was wonderful..... the breakfast fantastic.....management....unreliable and unresponsive. We were misquoted pricing for a tour and told we would receive a $75.00 AMEX card. Five weeks later, 4 e:mails, 4 phone calls ..no card and no response from management. At this point it isn't the refund that matters but the total lack of concern and respect for the... More

Plus: Perfect location for Davies Hall and Opera. Good continental breakfast with fresh offerings and comfortable seating. Helpful staff. Minus: Our "Ballet" room was very small. No in-room safe. Valet needs time to retrieve car from garage several blocks away.

We stayed here during the week for a family members graduation just up the street at UCF. This was the best shell hotel stay so far and we have stayed in a few. This is a boutique hotel so everything is old but pretty and in good condition. They provide coffee, lemonade, dishes, dish soap, even popcorn, and mouthwash in... More

This was our first stay in San Francisco. We did a time share exchange through II and got lucky. The people at the front desk (Jess, Reggie, and the young lady whose name slips my mind) were VERY helpful with suggestions, directions and just general information. Complimentary breakfast was unreal. Fresh fruit, breads, hard boiled eggs, bagels, etc. Location is... More

Stayed for a week and treatment was excellent. The property was well kept and located in the Hayes Valley area of San Francisco. Staff was friendly and very helpful with directions to area restaurants and what buses to take to get around.

For the San Francisco Opera or Symphony, the Inn at the Opera's location could not be better. It's less than two blocks from both houses -- and the walk is on level ground. Our room was actually a "Unit 4" suite -- there's one on each of the six floors -- and it had two full baths, an ante room... More

Great location in SFO. Sits next to the civic center. Building is older like traditional San Francisco. Stayed in a smaller room that was perfect for two people. Complimentary breakfast was great. My only complaint: We kept the window open at night due to the facility not having central air; however, between the trash trucks that come around every night... More

Really good central location, near to market street which you could grab a bus or tram to Castro or the piers! Breakfast was nice, good fruit and pastries selection! Staff were friendly, and the room was comfortable! Would absolutely stay here again!

This charming boutique hotel was in a great location for our latest two night stay in SF. There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood and, in fact, their in-house restaurant is terrific. Our only complaint was that we could hear conversation from the lobby at all hours. Try to avoid Room 26. The rooms are small, but serviceable. The... More

Thank you for your kind words about our property, and the amenities we offer. I do apologize about the noise, and am sorry to hear about that.

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood 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.
