It's always a bummer to think you are finding some incredible hotel, restaurant, etc. and come to find out it's just not the case. Hotel Vyvant definitely fit into the category for us. The location is great as you can walk to everything in Little Italy. As mentioned, there is no parking for the hotel, which means you're parking under... More

If you're looking for a home away from home and change from the faceless hotel rooms, I'd highly recommend the Vyant. Apart from being downtown, the staff ( I met Denise ) is warm and friendly. So nice to come back to this after a long day.

Charming little place with helpful staff, they were so sweet and easy going. We had a king room on second floor very clean and quaint. The lobby was spotless and had a nice table with chairs as well as a sofa and side chairs. Slight issues would be no parking and it is a bit noisy from outside traffic, also... More

The location was relatively close to the Gaslamp District. Walkable to most locations. Downside is the the parking is under a highway bridge and also there were homeless people, but they don't bother you so it wasn't a huge issue. There was also construction going on next door. I stayed in room H. Very nice and decent amount of space.... More

I travel extensively worldwide and have stayed in everything from tents to amazing hotels. Where ever I stay the front desk personnel at the very least will do their best to solve a problem no matter how small. My wife and I decided to stay at the Vyvant for the New Years Eve weekend. Upon arriving at the Vyvant there... More

Bed comfortable and clean room, but room a bit small. We had four people in the room but they only provided two coffee cups and coffee. Somewhat cosy atmosphere. However, most disappointing was no breakfast and not even decent amenities for coffee, tea, and other simple foods/beverages. Also parking is a hassle, on the street and under the highway, looks...

Stayed here for our anniversary weekend and loved it! Staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean. The beds and pillows were comfortable. It had a homey feel to it. Will definitely stay here again if we're ever in the area!

We stayed here for a couple of nights in early October. I was able to reserve one of the suites which was perfect for our family of 4. Two beds in the main room and one queen in the attached bedroom. Our flight arrived after normal office hours so our key was left in the locked mailbox outside the entrance.... More

New owner. No more happy hour. Reduced breakfast. Front desk opens late and closes early but the staff are friendly and caring. I had key card issues. Couldn't get into the bathroom on my floor half the time. Good price for the area, though.
