What an excellent boutique hotel. We spent 7 days on an Interval International exchange. This hotel is across from the town hall, opera & symphony orchestra. Four blocks down is the trolley cars to the Embarcadero(down Market St) or the Castro in the opposite direction. We had a 1 bedroom Symphony room. It was elegantly presented and very spacious.

Wonderful location. Very close to public transportation. The Inn was well cared for. The breakfast in the morning was great. Warm cookies in the afternoon. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. The parking is not the best, but you are in the city, so that is expected.

This is an older property that has been well kept. Just the fact that you can walk to the War memorial Opera House or the Symphony or the Ballet or the awesome City Hall building make this a great choice. The area-Hayes Valley- has multiple restaurants, boutique shopping and anything else to make your stay enjoyable. It's a short cab... More

Thank you so much for such a positive review of our property. As you observed, we are within walking distance to many attractions that San Francisco has to offer. Maybe next time you come back you can walk five blocks west of our hotel and check out Alamo Square, which has sweeping picturesque views of downtown San Francisco. Thank you... More

I can't wait to return to this clean, centralized quaint hotel that has an outstanding continental breakfast and is centrally loacted. Felt welcomed and at home. We walked to the bustop and used publice transportation across the street to get to Fishermans' Wharf.

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.

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"...

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.
