The Tenderloin district

Built in 1908, The Opal San Francisco is near Van Ness and Geary in the Tenderloin district. It's a 20-minute walk from Union Square, where you can shop at stores like Bloomingdale's and Cartier, and it's less than a 20-minute walk to Civic Center BART Station.

Cable car and Asian art

You can get on the Powell/Hyde cable car at Union Square and ride over Nob Hill and down towards the Bay and Ghirardelli Square, and from there, you can walk east along Fisherman's Wharf. A 15-minute walk away is the Asian Art Museum, which houses an impressive collection.

Diner

Right off the lobby is Mel's Drive-In, a 1950s-style diner where you can enjoy dishes like burgers and fountain shakes. For a workout, you can head to the onsite fitness center.

Great stay
The hotel was under construction but we knew that before booking so it didn’t bother us at all. The newly renovated rooms are beautiful! The bed and pillows were comfy too. The local area isn’t the best but it’s San Francisco. You’re going to run into homeless people on the street almost anywhere. We liked that a room key was needed to enter the hotel and also to use the elevator. It made it feel more secure. I guess the only downside would be that there isn’t parking, but again it’s San Francisco and there isn’t much parking anywhere. There’s a parking garage not far. Overall we had an excellent stay and would definitely stay at The Opal again!

Great place in downtown SF
Great location and nice new clean rooms. However not super flexible with check-out or very responsive at the end of stay.
