The Opal is at a perfect spot at the corner of VanNess and Geary, close to Union Square and tons of restaurants, bars, shopping etc. The staff seemed a little rude, and all were speaking what sounded like Italian and seemed to be talking about us
as we checked in.
The Opal was a nice hotel. We enjoyed the amenities and the location. It was connected to Mel's Drive-In which was convenient at night. The Opal is located on Van Ness Ave which is right on the city bus line and within walking distance of many
Staff was very helpful. Liked the atmosphere-not another chain. It had character. Visited the sites in the city. Was able to get around easily from this hotel. Was a little nervous about location after reading reviews on-line, but I'm not sure
what those comments were based on. The area was not rough at all. Just a big city with all that entails.
Staff are very helpful and friendly. Our first room was opposite an elevator door and we were moved the following day to a larger room with cable TV. The Opal hotel is located on a busy street so rooms suffer from internal or external noise so
take your pick!! Hotel was not as central as expected for sightseeing although well serviced by public transport.
