Great value & location! Memorable visit.

Friendly, knowledgable staff. Close to all the sights. Cable car 4 blocks away; rode every day. Didn't need car. Room was a good size with full bath. Pleasantly suprised and pleased with last minute accommodations. I would highly recommend this comfortable, modest hotel.

A little out of the way, but good

The Opal is convenient only to the theatre district. If that's not what you're after, you'll have a good walk or bus ride wherever you're going. There's a lot of San Fran charm to the place, though, and the upside of its location is that it's a great deal. With these rates, however, you can find yourself having to deal with some noisy folks occasionally.

great business amenities, close to all transit

The Opal was a very quaint hotel. Beautiful decor and very clean. Room was somewhat small, but a great value. Hotel check-in was quick and easy. Very friendly staff. Had a nice continental breakfast bar with plenty of seating space. The breakfast bar could have had more fuit or yogert instead of only apples. Noticed lots of business people staying here. Had a nice internet business center for hotel guest, and a nice workout facility. Great location, near all transit lines made getting around San Francisco easy. Mel's Diner next door was very convenient, and Tommys restaurant across the street was excellent. Both restaurants had great service and reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend The Opal and would stay here again.

Great Location

The Opal Hotel's location was perfect for my daughter and I. We were in walking distance or on main bus lines to really enjoy our first visit to San Francisco. The Fifties Diner right off the main lobby was great. The room was comfortable and clean,the elevator was very quick and the staff was very helpful. The 20 screen movie theater in a historic building next door and everything you would ever need within a few blocks walking.

Heart of SFO

You cant get a better hotel at a cheaper price in the heart of SFO. The layout of the hotel is such that it is utilizing maximum available space still it does not look congested. There were a large number of guests during the thanks giving stay that I was there, it shows the hotel is sought after. Parking is $28 a day extra. It offers free wired internet connection in the room is free.
