This Inn is at a convenient location for our needs. There are really no good hotels in the Hayes Valley, Civic Center area. It's clean, service is excellent and the continental buffet breakfast is a treat. The only improvement I would make would be in getting King sized beds for the rooms. They are on the small side.

This is a very quiet hotel even though it is in the middle of the city. The rooms are very small ; but nicely laid out and clean. It is close to public transportation. It is within easy walking distance of symphony,opera,ballet and yummy restaurants.

Just steps from the opera house and symphony hall, it is a perfect boutique old-style hotel for classical music lovers. It has great wi-fi connectivity, good beds & pillows, and friendly & helpful staff. A complimentary breakfast is included, cookies are offered at 3pm, and coffee is available all day. During my 2-day stay, however, none of the fruit was... More

This hotel is right next to Davies Hall and the San Francisco Opera as well as several museums. It is an easy public transit ride to the downtown. Highly recommended in all ways. The rooms have everything you need as a traveler. Great little bar and restaurant. Breakfast included wonderful staff. Easy to find.

Recently stayed here for a few nights and would definitely not recommend. Staff are unwelcoming, uninformative, not willing to go out of their way to help. The rooms are small, not well equipped, no draws or bed side tables, no dressing table or anywhere to get ready. Doesn't look like it does on the pictures. V tired, dark and noisy.... More

Recently stayed for four nights. We were disappointed with a few items. The portable heater in our room sounded like a jet taking off. When we asked for a replacement they said they would check but never got back to us. The complimentary breakfast was lovely when we learned about it on our last morning.

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.
