The Opal is located on a major street with bus service straight to Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square although you are close enough to walk to Union Square. Breakfast is included which is awesome! There is a fitness room - you can lift weights or do steps. The room was immaculate, and beds were super comfortable and warm. The thermostat; however, was a bit difficult to control, and the room was a bit hot for our taste although the staff was very nice and quickly came up to work on the thermostat. The staff, in general, was fantastic, very helpful, printed out our boarding passes, gave us info about the city and tours, and arranged our airport shuttle.
Love the location! The elevator's a bit scary but otherwise everything was great! And the price was perfect. We ended up staying an extra night and was able to visit Alcatraz at night, Academy of Science, Pier 39 & Muir Woods during our stay :)
If you want a bland same-as experience, you won't get it here. There are a few downsides: if you want ice you have to ask at the front desk, and the elevator is kind of slow. But this place has character and the rooms are nice, clean, well furnished, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
The location felt close to everything in SF and public transportion is on hand. The room itself was bigger than most hotels I have been to, the beds are comfortable, we had nice view of the city, and the cleanliness was on spot. Also, the parking is reasonable ($40 plus tax) for SF, while other hotels charge $60 plus tax. Overall all (besides the TV not working) it was a great experience and it will be a hotel I will visit again when in SF.
Very nice hotel. I loved that it was close to all the sights, the beach, shopping, and the bay. It liked the view from the hotel and the front door was locked at night for security. I got to see many sight. The room was confortable and the staff was very helpful. I traveled with family members and they really enjoyed the stay at this hotel. The hotel was in a very good location, which made everything very accessive, even places to eat and interainment. I enjoyed my stay
Nothing special but very nice and clean hotel. Pet friendly. Streets around could be a little bit noisy (especially in weekdays). Beds are nice and firm. One thing I didn't like - had to pay for hotel parking :( . In overall I had excellent stay.
