(7th and final stop on a road trip from Portland) We first stayed at the Hotel Vitale soon after they opened, around the time Sunset Magazine profiled them. Soon afterwards the room rates skyrocketed and we managed with other hotels in the City by the Bay. We have very fond memories of this property. It has easy access to a... More

Recent 4 night stay. Upon arrival we upgraded to the Bay side of the hotel and well worth it especially because I had to stay in the room most of the stay doing office work. Enjoyed the Bay Bridge lights at night, the daytime view of the ferries and barges, the outdoor plaza on the 7th floor, and the staff's... More

Hotel Vitale is an excellent choice in San Francisco!! It's a small luxury hotel, offering great views of the bay and the Bay Bridge. Rooms are very clean and service is excellent!! The bar is a great place to grab a drink and the breakfast is super yummy!! Highly Recommended!!

We booked this hotel for the sole purpose of getting a first-time view of the Bay Bridge lights (after having lived in the Bay area in the 80's with quite a few visits to SF since) and left with the thought that "wow, that place was pretty classy". But what set Hotel Vitale apart from a myriad of other boutique... More

The Vitale has a generally corporate feel and is no doubt an excellent efficient business hotel; however it's also a very comfortable and very well located tourist hotel. Almost opposite the old port clock tower building (now a large and very good indoor/outdoor deli, cafe and restaurant centre) it is an excellent starting point to a stroll or jog along... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. It is in the financial district adjacent to the bay bridge. The market across the street was wonderful, especially on the weekend for the Farmer's market. it was located close to all transportation, however we were able to walk to the Wharf, Chinatown and Union Square from the hotel.

This is a great hotel to stay at and the location is unbeatable. The quality of the accomodations is top notch and we were able to enjoy a good night's sleep, even though the room faced a busy street.

I wanted so much to like this hotel - the room is nicely located with a MUNI stop right in front of it and the great Boulevard restaurant across. However, i am constrained to give a negative review due to the so-so Customer Service -- housekeeping does the (super bare) minimum and doesn't even bother checking to replace the used... More

I've never been so impressed with a San Francisco hotel. It started out a little rough due to a misunderstanding. But as soon as the hotel manager was involved, Tyler took care of everything. I left very impressed.

If you're touring San Francisco, there's nowhere better to stay. The hotel is incredibly comfortable. The service is impeccable (moments after I checked in, they checked in to ensure that everything was okay for me). The location is unbelievable - I was able to snap the stereotypical San Francisco photos of bridges and cable cars, without leaving my room. If... More
