"Loved this hotel"
I was recommended to this hotel by another hotel that was out of my price range. I only booked Hotel Vitale due to the "Suite Sweet" package. We had an enjoyable stay, but we would have not paid over $450 a night for this hotel, which was the price without the package. I highly recommend looking at their packages and calling the hotel to see if there is a better rate or package. The location was perfect, nicer and less crowded than Fishermans Wharff. The hotel gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and I felt very high class staying here. The staff was nice, Keith the concierge was helpful. The only suggestions I have is replacing the carpet, there were also some scuffs on the wall. Also, the bathing ritual at the spa needs music or earplugs to drown out the noise from the street, could have been a bit more relaxing. I highly recommend staying here, but again, only if the price is right.
"Seems more interested in appearance than reality"
My impression of this hotel is summed up in "pretentious". Small, cramped room - allegedly for three but quite small by U.S. standards. Even the description - "SF City/Street View" - as opposed to "Waterview" - is deceptive. The picture accompanying that room type portrays a vista down a street into the distance. The reality is a cliff of office windows across the street. And then there are the hugely overpriced items in the goodies tray and the "Honor Bar", and the nickel and dime everything else. $1.29 to print a single page in the business center! At the prices charged for rooms I'd expect free printing (perhaps up to some reasonable limit) to be free as well as more than just coffee and tea in the lobby each morning. And oh yes, don't forget the "Restoration fee". Presumably for restoring the room to its original condition - no other explanation is available. I won't come back to this one.
"dont stay there"
I stayed at this hotel in a suite for four nights beginning september 6, 2014. There were two problems.: the noise from the street was so loud that the hotel gives out free ear plugs to deaden it and each room has a noise machine to give off sounds. Even with the ear plugs the street noise makes it difficult to sleep. 2. When you check out you will find a $30 per day charge for restoration fee. when you ask, they are vague and tell you it's for amenities in the hotel. there is no mention of this when you make the reservation or check in. At the price for a suite, this extra charge is rubbing salt in an open wound. I would not stay at this hotel again
"Location location location- and a great view!"
Amazing location in the embarcadero area- all the fun San Francisco things to do are nearby. Bay Bridge view at night is incredible- light installation is beautiful and view from bay view room of bridge is perfect. Hotel is beautiful and staff are wonderful! Every interaction with all employees was great.
"Luxurious and relaxing stay"
We stayed at Hotel Vitale for four nights. The king waterview room was expensive but worth it for the view and comfortable space. The location so close to the water reminded us we were in San Francisco. The proximity to the Ferry Building was great and Union Square is not too far. We walked almost everywhere during our stay. There are much less expensive and nice places to stay but for a short visit, we really appreciated the luxury and good service.
