If you like bland tower hotels with standard rooms, this might not be the place for you. If you are charmed by a tiny, old-fashioned elevator and rooms that remind you of staying in a friend's guest room, then you will love the character of this nice hotel, conveniently located right by city hall and within walking distance of a...

We recently stayed at the Inn at the Opera in March 2014 for five nights. We were anticipating a nice inn according to everything we had read and with Interval International it is considered a premier resort. I would not categorize this as a premier resort at all. It fell so far below our expectations and I would not recommend... More

From the moment we walked in and were greeted with freshly-baked cookies we were enchanted. The staff was so friendly we felt at home immediately. The room was small, but clean and cozy. There's a little area that's almost a kitchenette; the cupboards were stocked with glasses and bowls and there was silverware in the drawers. There's a refrigerator and... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the cookies (I’m forced to sample them occasionally to ensure that we are serving the best, LOL) and I’m really happy that our staff took good care of you during your visit here at the Inn. We are really lucky to have such great people working here. Thank... More

We used Interval exchange points to stay at this Shell Hospitality property for a week and would consider staying in the hotel again in the future. The hotel was small, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and readily available to answer all questions. DVD machines are in all rooms and the front desk has an assortment of movies to... More

I was not sure what to expect - this was an Interval exchange and I had never stayed in a Shell Hospitality property before. Older property but nicely renovated and the staff were friendly and helpful. Great location about a block from City Hall, next to the Ballet and the Opera. The Hayes Valley location is a neighborhood in transition.... More

My wife and I celebrated a late valentines day in San Francisco. (Feb 22-24) We did a short stay exchange for Inn at the Opera. This location is a great exchange stay if anyone is going to San Francisco to experience the city but if anyone is looking for a resort experience this is not the place to stay. Rooms... More

A lovely boutique hotel directly across the street from the Opera House. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled across this place. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate. Our room was quiet, comfortable, clean and had every possible amenity. While not in the most desirable neighborhood, we were easily able to walk to Union Square and Chinatown during the... More

Cute place in near City Hall, Opera House. A small boutique hotel, each room is like a small apartment. Great service, free cookies in afternoon, continental breakfast that is included add to the charm of the place. The surroundings are okay, but when you choose downtown SF you got to have an open mind. The Bart is 3 blocks away... More

I would like to note that the staff was incredibly helpful & caring. The hotel seemed clean, although tiny (my husband and I were squeezed in the elevator together - which was a longer ride up than just walking the flights of stairs to the 3rd floor). We were also confused that maid service was not a daily occurence, unless... More
