Good location if you walk out the front door and turn left - Hayes Valley gentrified area with cute upscale restaurants and shopping and a nice bakery. Out the door to the right are homeless unfortunates that we all sympathize with..... This is near City Hall, not near downtown which may be a consideration. Great proximity to Asian Art Museum,...

We exchanged our timeshare for a week in San Francisco in order to visit family there. What a surprise to find a room like a postage stamp. The window rattled all night, and there wasn't any heat. They finally fixed the window on the third day and brought us a space heater. Despite the room, we had fun exploring the...

I stayed at the Inn last week the night before I departed San Francisco. It's a very quaint boutique style hotel which is more like a B & B. The rooms are very small but the bathroom was huge. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a microwave and fridge and the complimentary bag of popcorn was a nice touch!...

We were only in San Francisco for 3 days and the Inn at the Opera reminded us of a boutique European hotel. You really can't compare it to an upscale chain. The rooms are somewhat small. Although, our room had a sitting room, an other room with a fold out couch and full bathroom, queen bedroom with a full bathroom....

Stayed at this property as a time-share opportunity as gift from a friend. Room was tiny but had a small refrigerator and microwave. They offer a complimentary breakfast so it worked out well. Accommodations nothing to get excited about - we inquired about a larger room and there was another guest making same request - they honored her request not...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.
