We're Shell owners and used a some of our points up for a nearby weekend mini vacation to San Francisco. The hotel is small & stylish and the service was excellent. They offer a nice complementary continental breakfast as well as parking at an additional $35/Day which includes in and out service. If possible I'd opt for the larger suite... More

I've stayed here several times before because of the reasonable rates and excellent location in the Hayes Valley. This time round my visit was so so. The room was very dreary and smaller than previous ones. There was also a high pitched tone coming from somewhere which I never resolved and made it very hard to sleep. The front desk... More

The Inn at the Opera is a very classy hotel with a dedicated staff, whose only interest is your happiness. I think this may have been one of the most reasonably priced hotels I've ever stayed in but what I found impressive is that the service and the decor had such high standards. How can a hotel in the heart... More

IATO is the kind of boutique hotel that was a rare and surprising find -- 30 years ago (which was the first time I stayed here). Trouble is, not much has changed about this place in those three decades. Front desk friendly but not very resourceful. I was assigned a room with no desk - a real problem since I... More

Pretty good location in San Fran. Small rooms and a nice morning breakfast. I rated this high because in this town it is a great value. Have stayed 4 different times over 7 years and have never been disappointed. It is not luxury. It is practical. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. But a great place to stay.

I thought the location was perfect. There are many great restaurants and bars within a 2-8 minute walk of the hotel, there is no need to go any further.

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.
