A fantastic hotel with fabulous staff. Trevor, Denise and Austin are a credit to Hotel Vyvant. Before arriving, I had emailed the Hotel with queries and I was impressed at how quickly Denise responded to me. They were all extremely helpful with directions to various places, handing out maps and taking time to answer all questions. The granola for breakfast... More

The people who work here were wonderful. I hope their boss knows what great people he has. So helpful and willing to have friendly conversations with the customers. The room was clean and worked fine for me. It is such a great location. It was close to Little Italy and the restaurants was great. A few more blocks and you... More

First of all, we were greeted very warmly by the front desk clerk and made to feel so welcome. We arrived about three hours before check-in time but he gladly took our bags for safekeeping until we returned later after doing some sightseeing. The room was very clean and the bed was the most comfortable bed ever! It was a... More

Hotel Vyvant was a nice little boutique hotel - we liked it's charm and character. It was a great spot for our "parents night out" romp around Little Italy. It was in walking distance to all the cool places. The staff there was great - very helpful and friendly. By far this is what stood out about our stay. The... More

This COULD have been a great little hotel, but allow me to explain why it lost at least 2 stars. I came here and stayed with my boyfriend for a night after a concert since it was the most affordable hotel that was close...ish to Petco Park. Check in was fine...and during the day, the neighboring streets didn't seem too... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at our hotel. First, I would like to address the tub issue. We have never charged extra to use the spa tub in the Spa King room. The use of the tub is part of the total room... More

The hotel is great! It is also the people that make the hotel special, and these are special people. Their help and willingness to search the web for details made our holiday extra special, Many thanks to the staff.

This was our first trip to California. We chose Hotel Vyvant from the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel is lovely and clean and the staff were personable and accommodating. The hotel is very central to the pier and all the good restaurants in Little Italy. We will definitely be a return patron!

Beautiful place located in Little Italy. The rooms are bright and furnished in a very lovely way. The atmosphere is familiar and the service is great. Guests are invited to enjoy free beer and wine during the happy hour (5pm-7pm) every day. We really loved this place and would recommend it to everyone. The only negative aspect is its location...

Location is convenient to the beach (five blocks) and Little Italy section of town (one block). If you like Italian food you can't do better that staying here. Dozens of Italian within walking distance. We also do CrossFit and one of the best boxes (Invictus) is only four blocks away. Staff is all young, energetic go-getters who knock themselves out...
