My wife and I spent our 20th anniversary in SF on Jan 8-11. We know of the Vitale from previous trips. Still the same cool vibe, with great rooms and location, right across the street form the Ferry Bldg, yet away from the Union Square mobs.... we walked to many restaurants, bars, etc., or took short cab rides to our...

I was so lucky that my client booked me a room at the Hotel Vitale: Such a fabulous view of the Bay. Such impeccable service. Such a nice room. I couldn't have loved it more. I cannot recommend this place enough. You'll love it.

Vitale is my favorite hotel period. I sleep great, their staff is fantastic and the location in San Francisco can't be beat. The onsite restraunt and bar is solid. Make sure you check out one of their two rooftop patios!

No question, this is one of the nicest boutique hotels in the Bay Area. Staff are absolutely lovely and rooms are spacious. Linens are great and housekeeping spotless. I've stayed here a few times and here are the caveats: 1) limited space in the bathroom for products - this is more important as a female traveler I think!! 2) hallways... More

It's a little surreal how much I loved this hotel. I mean, I truly ENJOYED myself staying there.

I traveled solo, and the room was booked for me by friends who live in San Francisco. They could not have made a better choice. The location, in the financial district, on the corner of Mission and Embarcadero, two hundred yards from the Bay, could not have been better. Room 320 was on the front of the building; it had...

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
