great business amenities, close to all transit

Would recommend Thu, Dec 18, 2008
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

Would recommend Tue, Dec 9, 2008
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.

Dining

Tommy's across the street had the best dinner plates we had ever had.

Heart of SFO

Would recommend Mon, Dec 1, 2008
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.

Good value, comfortable

Would recommend Tue, Nov 4, 2008
Had a great time at the Opal for business but close to everything for pleasure also. Staff was attentive and very professional. Very clean, larger rooms than in other San Francisco downtown hotels. Plumbing slow and staff fixed this very quickly so no problem. Very quiet. Delicious diner and a bakery nearby. Walking distance to trolley, LaFayette park, Moscone convention center for people not afraid to walk a mile or so. Nice ethnic restaurants nearby. Theaters in walking distance also.

The Opal is graet find for the price. The hotel is charming and the staff friendly. Our room overlooked Van Ness Ave. and was kinda noisy,but it was part of the city experience. The location was good, both close to Fishermans Warf and Union Square.

Dining

Tommys across the street, good comfort food.

The Oval in San Francisco was inexpensive for a room in San Francisco but I understood why as soon as I opened my room. I'm not generally picky, but this room smelled bad, even if I left the door and windows open. The toilet didn't flush properly, lights were burnt out, and there was no hot water the entire 4 days I was there. Location wise, its a bit of a walk from anything interesting.

Entertainment hint

movie theatre within 500 ft. 20 min walk to union square or nob hill, 25 min to china town

This hotel smells like your grandma

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 31, 2008
I can't quite place what the smell was- cigarette smaoke covered in air freshner or gross old woman perfume, i'm leaning toward that. either way it gave me a headache. The neighborhood was slightly skethcy although i had no problems besides taking cabs everywhere. the diner next door was really good. the hotel staff was friendly enough.
