This hotel was our first of 3 on our honeymoon in USA. We had booked a room with a Bay Bridge view. To say our room had a Bay Bridge view is being a bit optimistic. We had to peep out the corner of the window to see it. We asked reception if there were any more rooms we could... More

From the moment you walk in the chic lobby, you'll realize that this hotel offers something special. The attention to detail matches the attention they offer their guests. Beautiful rooms overlooking the Embarcadero. Fabulous linens. Well stocked mini bar. It's very trendy and hip and for two 60 year olds, we loved the excitement and energy of the place. Walking...

I am a San Francisco native currently living in Alamo and working in the city. Whenever I have friends or clients visit San Francisco I urge them to stay at the Hotel Vitale. The location is the best! If you enjoy running, the run from the hotel along the Embarcadero to the Gold Gate Bridge is fabulous. Hotel Vitale is... More

Stayed here for the weekend with my husband. Great location with fantastic views of the Bay Bridge and Ferry Building. We did not opt to pay for a room with a view, but did enjoy the views from the rooftop terraces on the 5th and 8th floors a couple of different times. Nice to be able to take a glass... More

Close to our corporate headquarters this hotel was suggested by our travel department. I used to stay at some of the larger chains which are a bit further away so I decided to try this hotel and I am very glad I did. This is a very clean, modern hotel with helpful staff and a convenient location. The bar is... More

Stayed 4 nights in June. Excellent side room on the 5th floor with great view of Bay Bridge. Very comfortable bed. On the edge of financial district and opposite Ferry Building this hotel is in a great position for a stay in San Francisco.

Lovely staff. Great location, right across from the Ferry Building. Beautiful room overlooking the bridge. Very nice terraces on 5th and 7th floors (sometimes reserved for private events.) Lively cafe for afternoon tea (or happy hour... more frequently, so it seemed.)

I last stayed 7 years ago and didn't love the Vitale. This time I really enjoyed it. The rooms are good size with comfy beds. The bathroom is modern with good products. The location continues to be great. The only down fall was the women at the front desk. On 2 separate occasions I asked simple questions and was given... More

Dear livinginlondon1344: First of all, thank you for staying with us again, seven years ago we were still quite new, so it is good to hear that we have improved! It is wonderful to know that you enjoyed your room—there’s nothing like a comfy bed to recover from jet lag in after such a long trip. Alternatively, I am disappointed... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in November 2013 for Business. Great smooth check in and excellent view of the Bay Bridge. Room was spacious and clean with a lovely big bathroom and I had a view of one of the side buildings and street which was fine. Good location easy to walk to the ferry building and only a 20... More
