"Very nice stay and great location"
Business trip in SF. Vitale is one of the obvious choice when coming to SF. Great location: embarcadera, Mission street, close to Union square (20mn walk) and all the piers. Also, for those who need to drive out of town for business, like I did, it is very easy to access to all the main motorways including the Bay Bridge. Just watch the time to avoid the rush hours. The rooms are clean and spacious. Benedict Eggs in the morning are just brilliant!! The bar is rather busy every evening with company reunion / Happy hours celebrations & parties. But must say, noise does not propagate the the floors..
"Boutique and luxurious!"
Feels like a boutique hotel when you check in but the overall quality of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff makes you feel like you are in a 5 stars luxury resort! The room was clean and very well decorated; even though we had the Embarcadero right under our windows, extremely quiet room. View on the rooftop terraces are simply amazing. And the breakfast was excellent but not at an exorbitant price.
"Fabulous hotel, the best location in SF"
Impeccable service, elegant rooms, fantastic bar/restaurant downstairs, a great location downtown near the Ferry Building, and the best views in all of San Francisco - a direct gaze out over the Bay Bridge and water.
As always my favorite hotel in the city! We decided to stay after picking up a child from camp! I love this hotel whether I am traveling my family or for business. It is quiet, perfectly located and friendly staff!
"Great location and beautiful views"
We spent 2 and a half days here. My husband had to work, but I got to take advantage of the great accommodations and the surroundings. We arrived late in the evening and found a complimentary fruit tray and sangria waiting for us-- a really nice touch, although it wasn't labelled as sangria so I worry a little that someone travelling with a child or a person who doesn't drink alcohol may have been taken by surprise by it. We don't fit into either category, though, so we loved it. The staff were courteous and helpful. We didn't ask much of them, but they met our expectations. The valets, doormen, and bell-hops were all very kind and professional. Check in and check out were both quick and easy. It did take the maid over an hour to clean our room one day-- I know this because I was waiting on her to finish. I am really not sure why. We didn't make any sort of real mess, just two people sleeping in a bed. But, I suppose that's better than the alternative of someone rushing through and not cleaning the room thoroughly. Our room was really nice. We had a view of the Bay Bridge and the Embarcadero. It was a little bit weird to be directly next to an outdoor roof-top patio, but there were curtains that we could shut for privacy and during the couple of overcast days we spent there I only saw 2 people so it wasn't bad. Maybe if it had been sunnier we would have been more bothered by that. The location is very good. Lots of restaurants, cafes, and quick casual food around. It is just a short walk to all of the touristy stuff on the Wharf and an even shorter walk to the Exploratorium, which we didn't have time to do. We also happened to be there during a farmer's market that takes place on the Embarcadero, so I was able to grab some delicious tacos for lunch one day. The hotel is a bit pricey, but so is everything in San Francisco, so I think anything comparable would have cost the same. We would stay here again.
