My wife and I stayed at the hotel for three nights during a road trip around California. We parked in a lot a few streets away for the duration because we wouldn't need to use the car. As such, I cannot comment on the valet parking except to say, you can park for cheaper nearby. The hotel is only a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at the Opera two years ago. We returned this July and once again were beyond pleased. The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. I love the location being it was in walking distance to the symphony and restaurants. It was nice to leave the crowds behind at the wharf. There does tend... More

We traded our timeshare for a week here and for that, you really can't go wrong as it's nearly impossible to trade for a place in San Francisco. So... I'm not complaining. We'd stay here again but there were definitely some things that could use improvements. When we arrived at midnight after a plane delay, we were told that there... More

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.

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.
