Stayed here for 5 days on business and found the service to be impeccable-especially the concierge- great restaurant recommendations and each concierge went above and beyond this diva's social needs- I didn't have the greatest of views and have to say- the bathroom was a little unremarkable- I'm used to walk in showers or at the very least- rounded shower...

My office is in the financial district and this lovely boutique hotel is within walking distance. Even better it is across the street from the Ferry building and very near AT&T Park. Don't miss the chance to take in the view from the hotel's rooftop deck. The rooms are large and well appointed but it is definitely worth the extra... More

Great location right on the waterfront, with the market, great shops and restaurants all in walking distance. I had a bay/waterfront view, and I highly recommend requesting it. I had a lovely nook right by the window and was entranced by the sunset and lights on the bay bridge, a perfect San Francisco experience. The bed was very comfortable with... More

Despite a fantastic location, and stunning view on Embarcadero and the Bridge, as well as beautifully designed hotel, the hotel lacks of soul and "customer care", as in "we are happy to have you here, what can we do to make your stay unforgettable" ...considering the price tag. Service, mostly in the F&B section, wasn't up to par, I invite... More

he best thing about this hotel is the location. It is right across the Ferry Bldg and our view was the Bay... beautiful! So ask for the Bay View when booking. The rooms are small but well designed that it does not feel cramped. They are clean and modern. Then the bathroom amenities are "Fresh" --- love it! Service staff... More

This was my second stay at the Vitale and I learned that the first visit wasn't a fluke. It's really a very nice place to stay. The hotel has a very peaceful feeling and is in a great location - across the street from the Ferry Terminal, close to BART, and walking distance to lots of other places you'll want... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Vitale. The room was conveniently laid out, the bed comfortable and the desk efficient. It was clean and the furnishings were stylish. The hotel is centrally located right at the Embarcadero so it is really easy to get around. The staff were also very nice and accomodating. On our second... More

Its not easy to pick a hotel in San Francisco. There are really no "must stay" hotels and each neighborhood has its pluses and minuses. My friends decided on the Hotel Vitale and I can't say it was even on my radar. I am very glad they did. But walking in my room...I was ready to "walk out". It started... More

I've officially switched from the major chains in SF to staying at the Vitale everytime I come to the city. While prices are slightly higher the proximity to the water, the ferry building, embacadero to go running in the morning and the kind staff you meet everywhere while staying at the hotel are very convincing. Joie de vivre really has... More

We stayed at this hotel based on a recommendation from a friend. It was a short stay but worth it. The hotel is in a great location right next to the Piers. We had great service while we were there. It was clean and fairly quiet. The room we stayed in was very modern with a comfy bed. I would... More
