Business trip
Nice room, it will be better after the construction is completed, lots of dust everywhere.

Very Good8.0
Comfy and chic room, needs some details
Renovated room is modern, and the bed is super comfy. However, the hotel is currently under construction so there is no real lobby, and the on-site restaurant is closed (although there is no shortage of places to eat in SF!). The neighborhood isn't unsafe, but I didn't feel comfortable walking around by myself late at night due in part to all of the dark construction sites. The room was very nice although some things we're hidden -- I didn't realize there was a coffee maker or extra cups until right before I checked out, because they were hidden in a drawer under the TV. The toiletries were surprisingly low quality for the chicness of the room (shampoo provided, but no conditioner). Also, the water in my bathroom sink wouldn't get hotter than lukewarm. Those minor details aside, the renovations are gorgeous and the rooms as comfy and chic. I felt very safe in the hotel and it was a quick walk from most places I wanted to go. I would definitely stay here again!

remodeled older hotel
As others have stated, the hotel is getting remodeled. The room was clean and newly updated. the hallway smelled of new paint (if you are sensitive to that). There was no hot water in the shower. Due to the construction, there was no restaurant. The beds were comfortable. It seemed over-priced.

Great Hotel questionable area
My flight arrived late but the hotel was able to accommodate my late checkin. The room 505 top floor newly renovated with King size bed. I slept great all 3 nights. There was late night construction the first but it wasn’t too bad. I recommend at the Opal.

Loves my stay!
Hotel was very nice and modern! The construction never hindered any part of our trip. Staff was always friendly. Room and hallways were always clean. I felt extremely safe with the 24 doorman and having to swipe my keycard to basically get anywhere. Will definitely recommend The Opal to anyone traveling to SF!
