Absolutely loved this place! Not only were the service and the food impeccable, but so were the views. As a guest, you have access to the spas and the private roofdecks with amazing views of the Embarcadero and the Ferry Building. Another benefit is the hotel's proximity to The Ferry Building, the Bay Bridge, the Embarcadero, the FiDi and Union... More

This is the most expensive hotel I've ever stayed in, so I can't really compare if to other hotels in this price category. We were on the 6th floor and so we did not have any problem with noise coming up from the very busy street. We had a corner room with a wonderful view of the Bay Bridge out... More

We arrived to a very professional and warm welcome (by Stephanie), handed hot towels to freshen up while we checked in and were blown away when we discovered we had been upgraded to a gorgeous and spacious harbour view room. We were also stunned to return to our room after heading out for an explore and find a complimentary bottle... More

The hotel is a modern boutique hotel. We had a very comfortable bed and everything we needed was catered for in the room, except (for UK readers!) no kettle or complimentary tea bags. There is , however, "complimentary" tea/coffee in the lobby area late afternoon each day. The breakfasts are wonderful and the service is of a high standard. The... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Hotel Vitale. On arrival the valet, doorman, and the hotel receptionist were welcoming. Stephanie, the hotel receptionist was incredibly personable. As we're loyal fans of the Joie de Vivre properties she warmly welcomed us back and granted us an upgrade to a wonderful room facing the Ferry Building. I... More

Service was impeccable. Greeted at check-in with warm towels for refreshing yourself. The room was very nice- clean, classy and comfortable. The icing on the cake was the view from the rooftop decks! I would definitely stay here again upon returning to town!

My sweetheart and I enjoyed celebrating a perfect "two year anniversary" at Hotel Vitale on August 31st. We live in Carmel and decided very last minute to go to the city for the night. We know Joie de Vivre properties well - and have never been disappointed - so we had quite lofty expectations of Hotel Vitale. Every expectation was... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were upgraded to a room with an amazing view of the Bay Bridge. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our two teenagers were thrilled at the free WiFi which was excellent. The room was very comfortable and we had a lovely cleaning lady/maid who also tidied everything up for us! The hotel... More

stayed here for 2 nights and i have to say that it was anything more than above average, paid $980.00 for 2 nights (room only), they added all sorts of extras on and we didnt get anything. Valet parking was $50-60 a day and the food was overpriced. Put me off going to San Fran as was too pricey
