Nearby Attractions in Downtown San Francisco

Make the most of your next trip to San Francisco. Stay at an address almost as storied as the city itself – The Opal San Francisco. Conveniently located at Van Ness Avenue and Geary Street in the Civic Center – Cathedral Hill neighborhood, we’re just minutes from celebrated attractions and businesses in downtown San Francisco. Hop aboard a historic cable car to rumble around the city – just like the locals did when a half-finished Golden Gate Bridge was beginning its reign over the Bay and Al Capone was cooling his heels out on “The Rock.” Crack into a freshly caught Dungeness crab at Fisherman’s Wharf. Set sail aboard a Monterey whale watching cruise. Enjoy a concert or event at the San Francisco Civic Center. Come discover The Opal, and make a little history of your own.
