Victorian experience in modern day San Francisco. Decorated throughout in Victorian antiques but with modern day amenities. Enjoy a complimentary sherry curled up in a comfortable chair next to a fire in period fireplace. Minutes walk away from the heart of the action but you can escape back to a quiet respite at the end of the day. Staff was very helpful and cheerful. Definitely not your usual mundane clone hotel experience. Only complaint was the mattress, It was hard and springy.
Spent 4 nights at The Opal. San Francisco hotels are crazy expensive ...so while it was all alright and the staff were quite friendly..it is hard to rave about spending so much for a 2 1/2 star hotel. Having said that...this was definitely the best value for the money when we were looking for a place to stay.
We found this hotel on the University of San Francisco's web site as one of their hotels they have an arrangement with, close to campus and we used as we moved our freshman into the dorm. Would definitely stay again. The rooms were great, and the neighborhood is fun with tons of places to eat.
Basic room, quite small. Old, but clean. Great location. And, the main bonus is the free parking, which is a major benefit in San Francisco. For the price, it's about right, bearing in mind what the more upscale hotels in San Francisco cost. Staff all very helpful. Free breakfast was donuts and croissants, with hot water for tea and coffee.
My friend and I stayed at the Phoenix for 4 nights aug 22-26 and had a wonderful stay. The room was clean and exactly as advertised, as was the pool and courtyard. The best part about the Phoenix is the great staff. Everyone that worked the front desk while we were there was exceptionally helpful and gave us great recommendations on restaurants and activities. Joe even gave us a nice basket of complentary snacks and gifts on our last day which was a nice surprise. Although the Phoenix isn't located in the best part of town we had no trouble and felt perfectly safe venturing out at any hour. Great trip can't wait to come back.
I've stayed at this hotel a few times, I go back because the price for San Fransisco city area is pretty reasonable and includes free parking. the rooms have always been clean and comfortable. I have never had any issues. a couple blocks down on Polk street theres Starbuck's and Peet's coffee and a Walgreens among lots of other shops and restaurants all a short walk away.
This hotel is great for friends bring together. It was me and three friends and we all like it because we were all in a budget and I don't recommend for families with children. The area is great in the day time...when it leads to night which is not that bad. Be together at night but overrall good hotel with friends. Lastly, the noise will keep going all night!
