As it was our first trip to San Francisco, and the USA for that matter, we really wanted to stay somewhere that had a bit of history and was more of an iconic building. Inn at the Opera fitted the bill and lived up to all our expectations. From the front desk staff, to the hotel head engineer to the breakfast wait staff , everyone was welcoming and helpful. We had a 5 am start one morning and they made breakfast available for us with takeaway containers to take on the tourbus, and the bowl of apples and the afternoon cookies at reception are an added bonus. Location was brilliant, we used public transport every where and felt very safe walking to and from the hotel.
We had the smallest room at the front of the hotel on the 3rd floor. quaint elevator upt to the 3rd floor or easy stairs. Very comfortable , well decorated and quite big enough for two travelling Australians. Good hot shower with good water pressure. Only thing would have liked would be an electric kettle to make tea(we heated the water in the microwave) and there was a coffee maker. Had no trouble sleeping, some minimal noise from road cleaner one morning but not enough to keep one awake.
Breakfast each day was included, plenty to eat (even for one gluten intolerant) with fruit , yogurt , hard boiled eggs, cereal toast etc.. Did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment. But did eat at nearby Max's , which was a very good meal with great atmosphere and entertainment.
Would definitely stay here again. Great value for money.
