On the plus side the location is great, views from the rooms beautiful, bar staff speedy and polite, reception friendly and welcoming. On the down side road noise constant, hotel and rooms now looking a little tired and worn, it's expensive and not particularly good value.

Stayed here for a Reunion weekend. Nice sized room; bathroom quite large. Has lovely outdoor terraces for viewing the Embarcadero and Bay Bridge and beyond, while meeting and greeting one another. Ferry Building and so much more, including so many wonderful restaurants. Staff were professional and helpful. Breakfasts were leisurely and healthy. Easy to get around the city via public... More

Recently stayed here for three nights with my husband and daughter. Upon arrival from the airport, our car was directed out of the drive so we unloaded on the street and were not offered any assistance entering the hotel or getting to our room. The check in staff come across very arrogant, which is really odd! They don't have that... More

Good size bathroom in large limestone tiles. Good shower. Comfortable bed and pillows. We had breakfast the next morning which was very good.... More

A SF native recommended this hotel to me as told me that no-one should stay out in Fisherman's wharf. Having stayed there with great access to the ferry building, market etc I'm really glad I listened.

Having stayed in SF previously at a different hotel I wasn't counting on a lot from Vitale however I was surprised. The doors are opened for you upon entering and leaving, all of the staff are cordial and the room on the 5th floor offered a nice view looking at the Bay Bridge. I don't have any major complaints but... More

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.
