Singing at the opera? How about attending it, or just having an interest in staying at an historic hotel in the heart of San Francisco's Civic Center? Steps away from the opera, symphony, and ballet (as well as trendy Hayes Valley and excellent public transportation), the Inn at the Opera is a small boutique hotel that is as charming as is it is central. While there, dine at Pläj, their concept restaurant that serves Scandinavian/Californian fusion cuisine in tapas-size portions.Recommended for:Local Culture

Inn at the Opera is a nice, smaller hotel with very friendly, personable service. It is newly renovated (some floors are currently undergoing renovation) and features a popular restaurant (Plaj).
Located behind City Hall and next to the Opera, the location of this hotel is ideal for anyone visiting the opera, ballet, or symphony. Located at Franklin and Fulton, it’s a short walk from McAllister and Van Ness, which have major bus routes. It’s also just a few minutes away (walking) from the Van Ness and Civic Center Muni/BART stations on Market, so it’s really easy to get around from here.
Small hotel (48 rooms) so staff remembers you
Very friendly service (greeted every time we went in or out)
Computer in lobby for guests to access internet
Kitchenette with fridge, microwave, coffeepot, dishes, silverware, and sink (great for having a drink or heating up leftovers)
Free breakfast (varies slightly daily: cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, muffins, breads, bagels, English muffins, cream cheese, jam, tomatoes, fruit, coffee, tea, oj, etc.)
Otis Spunkmeyer cookies at 3pm and apples in the lobby
Daily basic cleaning for timeshare owners (other timeshares may only offer a single midweek cleaning)
Quick heater in room
Duvets that get washed (no yucky reused comforters contaminating the bed)
Makeup remover wipes/cloths in bathroom
Windows that open (love that fresh air!)
Street parking may be available, but use caution
Wifi's weak signal makes it practically useless
Only one small elevator (holds 4 people)
Although they are renovating, there are some areas clearly needing repair (like the baseboards in our room, or the walls of the elevator)
Parking is valet only
Rooms are on the small side (but this is typical for an old SF property)
Walls are on the thin side
Overall, the pros greatly outweigh the cons. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed in one of the remodeled rooms (top floor-7th)and while it is small, it was enough room for two people to comfortably spend a week. One of the biggest perks of staying here is the free breakfast, which can really save money and start the day off right. And the best part of that? They have fresh blueberries and raspberries every morning. Breakfasts aren't always very vegan friendly, but this one was 100% vegetarian with a lot of vegan options. Seriously awesome.
