Our room was very spacious. The sofa bed was comfortable and the bed was great. My son and his wife tried the new menu at the restaurant and they loved the food. We didn't hear any noise from the street. We are so glad that Shell has not tried to change this property.

A lovely historic boutique hotel adjacent to the SF Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, Asian Art Museum, and Civic Center. Originally a hotel for opera singers and quest artists it is full of cultural memories. The breakfast buffet is generous with a variety of options.

The Inn at the Opera is a smaller and very personable hotel so convenient to the Civic Center area with all the various types of performing arts and the Asian Art Museum nearby. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the "Opera Rooms" quite large and very comfortable. We had a mini kitchen with microwave and pleasant table and... More

The hotel is located on the edge of Hayes Valley, a very nice area with restaurants and shops (head south and east from the hotel). It is a very nice well-kept boutique hotel. Our room (Concerto #33) consisted of a bedroom just large enough for the bed, and a small sitting room just large enough for two comfortable chairs and... More

We're staying in the smallest category (Ballet I believe) and I don't understand why folks are complaining about the size of the rooms. Folks - level set: This is an excellent, boutique hotel in downtown SF. The building is pretty old, but the hotel and rooms are in great shape. If you go into this expecting a "bed & breakfast"...

Do your home work before you book. Our room was so small the space between the foot of the bed and the unit that held the TV you had to turn side ways just to get by. The room are clean. No AC. San Francisco can be hot one day and cold the next so would be nice to have... More

This very nice hotel is nearby the Opera and Asian Art Museum. My room was well decorated and extremely comfortable. The staff were all very nice and efficient--I would recommend this place to anyone, although one must pay for the good location and rather luxurious surroundings.
