Great Location, Beautiful Lobby

Very friendly helpful staff in beautiful lobby. Loved the bed linens! Easy walking distance to Union Square and trolley. Pretty extensive continental breakfast with toast and bagels. Rooms were small but well accomodated. Parking is limited but very secure. Overall great stay.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Most downtown activities within walking distance, but the city bus is also a good resource and front desk very knowledgable of routes and schedules.

location is a bit shaky but friendly ser

Close to Yoshi's and Golden Gate Park. Eat at Tommy's, an old style deli that has been around for years. It is right across the street. Had the best pastrami sandwich and this place has a big selection of beers

The OPAL Hotel Great Value

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?

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 tip: Short walk from hotel

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

good location, average hotel

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)

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

Right on!

Friends and I took a weekend trip to SF for a concert, it turned out to be a great experience as the music hall was just around the corner. The location was a bit far from downtown but not a big deal. The service was corteus and the price just right. Would definitely come back.
