We booked through hotwire - as a 3 star hotel in Japan town. When we first arrived we got a smoking room accessed outside, 1 star motel room. Travelling with a young child, we insisted on a non smoking room. They couldn't accommodate as the hotel is full - but provided a air purifier. The next day, I requested again for a non smoking room, and luck was with us, we were upgraded to a non smoking suite. It is fantastic.
The lesson learnt re Opal
- they have different standard rooms depending on your luck - the suite is fantastic, but the other room is shocking.
- don't book through hotwire for Opal rooms as you will get a cheap, budget, 1 star room.
