Love this hotel...very comfortable, a bit funky and hip without trying too hard. Great central location and quiet, which is hard to find in the Union Square area. The staff, particularly Luis Morales, the general manager, and the bellman,Greg, is professional, friendly and accommodating. And, they play "Vertigo" 24/7 in lobby. How cool is that?

In town for the Dreamforce week, and thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Vertigo. The hotel itself is a cool, unique hotel. The room was nice, clean, and fresh, and also had a refrigerator. Other reviews have mentioned noise being a factor, but I didn't have issues. No air conditioning, but the ceiling fan helped cool the room substantially.... More

Hotel was in a good location for us. Clean, comfy and helpful staff. Room on 4th floor was great. Glad our travel agent chose this hotel for us. Close to bus transport. Breakfast cafés nearby. Loved the foyer and the welcome glass of wine.

This hotel cracks me up. The movie Vertigo is playing 24/7 in the lobby :) It's an eclectic hotel and the staff are eclectic as well. We had great service and our room was clean. We loved the location. In Knob Hill you are at the highest point for a trolley ride :)

Our stay at The Vertigo ticked all the boxes for our 5 night trip to San Francisco. A short walk from Union Square and easy to cable cars to Fisherman's Wharf this hotel was out of the tourist trap but near enough to visit on foot. Coffee facililities in room and every morning in the foyer plus a very friendly... More

This was the first stop of our American holiday and it defiantly met all of our needs. It's clean, comfy and in a good location near union square! It's described as a boutique hotel and although it is nice, I wouldn't consider it as a 'boutique hotel.' Staff here were always friendly and very helpful which was appreciated for our... More

Hotel is clean and comfortable although it's small. Coffee is available in the mornings next to the computer however it's worth going to the small cafe opposite you can get breakfast as well. Staff are helpful, but for what you get it is overpriced.

Loved our stay! The location is great. If you're not into walking, no worries, everything is a short taxi cab ride away. Only complaint would have to be the thin walls. You can clearly hear your neighbors conversations! Other than that the room was nice and clean and the staff was super friendly.

I absolutely LOVE this hotel! The staff is friendly, courteous and helpful. The lobby is impressive and the rooms are clean and cozy. We slept well and undisturbed. No sound from the hallway nor from other rooms. We also did not miss air conditioning. I would stay there again on my next trip.
