The Opal is not a fancy or high end hotel, but it's a good one and a great bargain. Room rates are very low for SF, about $140/night. Has its own secure parking at $27/night. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good and helpful service. Spacious lobby with extremely comfortable furniture. There are typically some seedy characters hanging about on the nearby sidewalks but they are harmless, and it is centrally located, convenient to Civic Center, Opera and Symphony, Union Square, and other locations of interest. Shares its building with Mel's, a '50s-'60s style diner with good food, old-style juke boxes, and an ambience that takes me back to my youth. In a word, I like this place.
