Super friendly front desk at check in and out. Accommodating to us when we wanted to switch our room due to proximity to elevator. Decor is cool and hip. Beds not uber deluxe but fine for a night, got a good night sleep. Check the pillows, 2 soft and 2 very hard to get the one u like. Towels and... More

I spent a sum total of 5 minutes in the place. Made the mistake of booking a Priceline express deal and thought I scored a deal in the Union Square area. Boy was I wrong. You know you are in trouble when the front desk attendant pulls out a shower head from behind the desk to give a demonstration on... More

A beautiful hommage to Hitchcock's movie. It's a nice compilation of details and bold statements, but no memorabilia. It's just exquisite. The ghosts of the film crew are still haunting the place, but in a very gentle, loving way.

My wife and I stayed here when we came to the city to a show at The Warfield. The front desk staff was very professional and nice. The rooms are kind of retro 1960's cool with an obvious occasional wink and nod to Mr. Hitchcock. For a hotel room in the city I found it to be spacious when compared... More

I stayed here fix it was on TripAdvisor top 10 list a year or so ago. Wish I'd stayed anywhere else. Where to start, how about pulling up. The valet was far from attentive, too busy playing on his phone. More on these guys later. The hotel staff are helpful enough do check in was a breeze. Then there's the... More

We stayed 4 nights in San Fran and found the Vertigo to be a very pleasant place to be staying! An older style hotel and you can take the stairs quicker than the lift, but nicely decorated and updated. It's a 5 minute walk into Union Square which will give you access to the trams to get you to Fishermans... More

This hotel is very well located as other reviewers have said already. I was in SF for about a week and I could go virtually anywhere in the city with a 5-10 min uber ride from this hotel. The staff is friendly, the room is nice and clean without being anything particularly memorable. I would definitely stay here again!

After struggling to find any reasonably priced accommodation in San Francisco I stumbled across this hotel and I'm glad I did. The hotel was in a good location, walking distance to Union Square (beware the hills of San Francisco!!). The room was small but clean. Great orange decor, including in the lobby. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. They organised... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. We wandered into town with no plans and after recalling my enjoyable first stay, I called up and we were happy to hear they had one double room remaining. The staff was friendly and funny. The room was nice (it definitely had character; there’s a Hitchcock theme throughout the hotel). The location... More

Within walking distance to almost everything. I would definitely stay here again. Reception staff were helpful and friendly. Reasonably priced shuttle service to the airport. Cafés, restaurants and laundry services all within a few hundred feet.
