Perfectly situated across the Embarcadero from the ferry building, this property has fabulous views of the Bay bridge, particularly at nightl. Staff are welcoming and friendly, valet parking efficient (if not a bit expensive, but this is San Francisco), and they have a great restaurant. If budget is of great concern, this may not be the hotel for you.

Location of the hotel is great. Rooms may not be the largest, but really nice size, and they do the job well in every way. Hotel has a nice view from it's terraces, especially at sunrise. The breakfast was not included to our stay but it was certainly great. Everything we've tried was delicious, and the service quality was excellent.... More

Great room with a view of the Bay Bridge. A perfect location with the Ferry Building across the street and fabulous nearby restaurants. Walking distance to everything including AT&T Park. My first choice of places to stay in San Francisco.

Booked this amazingly located hotel as a treat to myself and although I did not get to use the Spa facilities or the gym I did go up to the 7th floor roof terrace to enjoy the views of the pier and Bay Bridge in the evening and in the morning. My room was comfortable and as I checked in... More

I have been coming to SF (Ess Eff, as Herb Caen would've said) for a good 50+ years. I've sampled many a-hotel. I've given up on some of the oldies, sadly. I discovered this place through TA reviews, and thank you to all who reviewed it! First off, the location is fantastic! Across from Ferry Building on one side and... More

Beautiful views of the ferry building, bay and Bay Bridge and it's right by the street car stop so it's very easy to get to Castro ad Fisherman's Wharf. My room was large and very comfortable and clean (although I did have to beg for a replenishment of bodywash which was weird). I'd give their breakfast a miss - unfriendly... More

I didn't intend to stay at the Hotel Vitale. I knew nothing of the hotel before booking the reservation. All I knew was a friend was staying there and I just wanted to stay at the same place. My reservation was for the smallest room. When we arrived, the staff gave me a free upgrade to a corner suite. This... More

From the beginning to the end, our stay at Hotel Vitale could not have been more lovely. Perfect location, gorgeous room with incredible room, super clean and a great staff. I'm very picky about hotels and this one gets a top score.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
