The staff was outstanding and made every effort to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable--from checking in to the warm cookies in the afternoon. Very charming place to stay. The restaurant is lovely and comfortable. The...

This gem is near Hayes Valley, and close to shopping, muni stops and in a quiet neighborhood. Our stay was enhanced by the friendliest staff we have ever encountered. From the manager to the front desk staff to the cleaning crew and car parker, everyone greeted us, made sure we knew their name and offered to help in any way...

We stayed in this wonderful, friendly, small hotel after going to a symphony in San Francisco. Living about 2 hours away, it is an extra gift to have a place to stay, and whenever possible, Inn at the Opera will be our first choice. Room was small but clean; location near symphony hall and a multitude of restaurants excellent; breakfast...

We reserved a mid-November week at Inn at the Opera on Fulton Street in San Francisco, 1 block from the renovated City Hall, the SF War Memorial, the Opera House, & the Louise Davies Symphony Hall. There are many restaurants right around the corner, & public transportation is just a few blocks away. It is an older hotel w/mostly timeshare...

Spent 4 nights during Thanksgiving week at this wonderful hotel. The entire staff was welcoming and very accomodating. The room was exceptionally clean, comfortable and met our every need. The front desk has fresh baked cookies daily at 3:00pm, chocolate on your night stand each night and a light continental breakfast every morning. The hotel is located in a very...

My stay at the Inn was wonderful, It is a unique setting. All of the staff was friendly and very helpful. And I would recommend the Inn at the Opera to anyone looking for a location other then the Wharf. I stayed at a hotel at the Wharf in April this year, they had less to offer then this quaint...

At Civic Center in the middle of San Francisco--adjacent to Opera and Symphony halls, but, within walking distance of jazz at the Herbst, and free programs nearly daily at the S.F.

Fantastic area for seniors with the availability of "Rush" tickets, (so reasonable) to great performances, and public transport within...

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood 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.

“Back room is a little bit quieter, but no view. Do not take the 2nd floor back room because it will be right above the restaurant.”
