The OPAL Hotel Great Value

Would recommend Tue, Feb 22, 2011
Very nice old hotel if you want to get away form the usual SF Pier crowds. Close to Civic center opera and ballet. Some nice restaurants within walking distance. It would be nice if this SF would be cleaned up a little by their "finest" in a nice way. Since the pan handling can be a bummer and although they dont appear dangerous they are a real downer all the way to Union Square. One young guy followed us for a block trying to get a handout. Remarkable considering this is a very high rent district. It appears panhandling has become an industry in this area. Best regards...OSi

Uhh, good location?

Would not recommend Fri, Feb 18, 2011
The location downtown wasn't bad. Tommy's Joynt across the street had some really good food. That was about it on wins. You could hear through the walls easily, the shower was good if you are under 5'5", the breakfast was pretty bad even for continental, lots of homeless around and parking at $27 per night is a rip off.

Dining

Walk across the street to Tommys instead of Mels downstairs. Mels was overpriced and nothing special.

good location, average hotel

Would not recommend Wed, Feb 2, 2011
this hotel is in a great location but is a non-frills, really ordinary place. rooms are old-fashioned, small tvs, noisy fan in bathrooms, no bathtubs, bed linen was not too comfortable (itchy & hard)

Money saver

the hop-on, hop off bus leaves near the hotel. $35 for a 2 day pass, well worth it.

I did not spend much time at the hotel. Stayed there to avoid having to drive after a night of clubbing.

Pleasantly Suprised

Would recommend Mon, Jan 17, 2011
I was in the bay area for my Uncle's funeral. It was an emotionally draining day and I was exhausted. I worried that I'd be in a rough neighborhood and that I'd fight for parking. Neither happened. The neighborhood was fine and I found parking easily. The lobby was pretty and inviting and checking in was a breeze. The Opal was ready for me. I had brought a nice bottle of wine with me and I was able to borrow a bottle opener for my stay. My room was small and modest, but it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. My room was really quiet too. The first thing I did was open that bottle of wine and take a hot bath. Later that night I took a cab the 2 miles to SOMA to my favorite place called Heaven's Dog. It's on Mission. I highly recommend it. The braised pork belly in clam buns is outrageously delicious. The bartenders are true mixologists. Have them custom make a drink for you. Back to the hotel, it's location was awesome. The next day at check out I was able to store my luggage. I walked to the SFMOMA for a wine exhibit and stopped in China town for Dim Sum. It was very convenient. All of that was within 2 miles one way. Usually I stay with a friend who lives in San Francisco. If I am in need of a hotel again I will go back to The Opal. It's no frills place and I was happy.

ok for the price

Would recommend Fri, Jan 14, 2011
The room was a little small, has the weirdest odor in the room and hallway. The stairs make so much noise. The front desk people were really nice and helpful. They also have a breakfast buffet which includes; boiled eggs, oranges, apples, orange juice, apple juice, coffee, bagels, and toast. The shower is horrible, it could not stay the right temperature and the shower head was spraying everywhere. Overall, it was ok for the price but bad location.

Dining

Harris was amazing, we took the muni that was right next to our hotel all way down and it was right there.

Dated, but fine.

Would recommend Thu, Jan 13, 2011
My stay at the Opal was fine. The cost was very reasonable and the hotel is in a great location. That said, the room I had was very small, the TV did not work, and the decor of the room and the rest of the hotel is dated. That said, internet and a good contential breakfast are included in the price, so overall I would consider the value to be exceptional!
