"45th Wedding Anniversary "
My mother and father-in-law wanted to stay in San Francisco for their 45th wedding anniversary. They are a wonderful couple & wanted nothing less than exceptional stay. After much research online we booked them a room at Hotel Vitale. I contacted the hotel management to try to make this stay very special & enjoyable. They exceeded our expectations. The hotel management and front desk were very professional and personable. They personally greeted my mother & father-in-law. Their stay was wonderful from the moment they stepped into the hotel. I was very pleased with our experience with the overall hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel for any special occasion.
"Great view of the Golden Gate !"
We really enjoyed our stay here staff were amazing and our room had the most amazing view of the Bay & Bridge what a sight we had each night on our return to our room.The room was very well appointed with the standard you would expect.The building itself is so stylish and we also enjoyed the view from the roof top deck.would definitely return and stay here again its only a 5 min walk to the heart of all the action .
"Beautiful location, marked down one star due to spa "
Excellent location and I loved the stunning view from my room - a large window by a comfortable sitting area looked out on the ferry building and bay bridge (an especially great site at night). Great linens. If I were rating ONLY the room, I would have given five stars without question. However, taking everything into account I'll have to give four: -- Really small gym. they do give you a free pass to the nearby YMCA if you want to use a larger facility. However, as convenient as this is, it's not the same as having a good gym in the hotel. -- I was not impressed by the spa services. I am a frequent massage goer and would consider this massage in the bottom 50% of massages at ANY price range (including far cheaper ones). The therapist used way too much oil (it made her hands slippery and harder to use pressure), asked me how I was far more often than is usual, and generally didn't seem as skilled or "natural" as I'm used to. The rooftop bath is a nice idea, but also felt a bit flawed in execution. The rooftop is LOUD. It would be better to be inside a room with a bay-facing bird where they could control the sound. After my bath, I wondered why the other tub had a headrest and mine didn't, and I also wondered why they didn't take the one to explain as much as they should have (for example, what was the scrub sitting by the bath tub') -- I had room service breakfast. I asked for over medium eggs and they were much more like over easy. The potatoes were a bit too salty. Overall a decent breakfast (good chicken sausage), but not five star.
"Great Hotel, Great Location, Amazing Staff!"
We stayed here with children in order to attend Giants games over the weekend. It happened to be Pride Weekend and there was a lot going on. The hotel did its best to provide a safe haven as well as work around street closures and guests needs. We loved our room and looked out over the Ferry Building and Bay Bridge from the 5th floor. Our little one forgot a toothbrush and called down just before bed well after 11. The front desk said "we will bring one right up!" They did! There are nice decks with lounge chairs. Each room has a sprig of lavender by the door and the fragrance wafts gently as you walk to your appointed room. Would love to visit again.
"Good hotel in a great location BUT..."
I really love the location above anything else. Right across from the Ferry Building. Makes the restaurants in the Ferry Building easily accessible as well as the farmers market on Saturdays. My favorite restaurant, Boulevard, is just across the street. The views are very nice from the roof top terraces and selected rooms. MAKE SURE YOU GET THE VIEW YOU PAID FOR. Here is my issue: I booked an embarcadero water view king online. I looked at all of the rooms and their descriptions before deciding which to book so I was familiar with views associated with each room. When we arrived in our room it was clearly a partial view room facing mission street and not the embarcadero. I called the front desk and they assured me that was in the correct room category. I then pulled up the website to double check myself and my booking. The picture on the website of the partial view room was taken in the room I was sitting in!!!! I called back and told them very politely what I had discovered. They again told me I was in the correct room at which point I asked to be moved to the type of room I paid for or have my rate discounted to the room price of a partial view. After waiting on hold for about 5 minutes I was moved to a proper embarcadero view room that was on the the lowest floor (I requested a higher room upon booking) that was the handicap accessible room meaning a much less luxurious bathroom. No concessions were made. I am not happy with the outcome. I would like to stay elsewhere in the future but unfortunately really do love the location. They may get one more chance.
