"Overnighter in SF"
Great location, friendly staff, nice restaurant. Our room was clean and well appointed. The views from the upper patios were fantastic. We stayed here overnight after going to a San Francisco Giants game at AT&T park. The stadium is an easy walk from the Hotel or public transportation is right at the front of the building.
"12 days in a lovely, conveniently located hotel…."
I found the people @ Hotel Vitale friendly, helpful and professional. I discovered a wonderful person in housekeeping - Sue Lee. I don't leave tips every day for the housekeepers (who ever has cash) but instead leave an envelope with the executive housekeeper who knows which individuals worked in your room. She sent a thank you note back and each housekeeper added a thank you note as well. She also took care of every request with a smile and "what else can I do for you" attitude. I can be extremely dependent on the concierge staff and during my two weeks I was continually making requests and using their services. Jacques and Keith were terrific. I also had breakfast every morning in the hotel restaurant and got to know the servers who were fun, always a step ahead getting my favorite items before I asked. The team at the front of the property handling cars, taxis etc. were always there - I did not have to wait for their services and they were genuinely courteous. Overall a great group of people who make it difficult to come home and do it all for myself. And thanks to Stephanie @ the front desk. Spoiled!
"Not family friendly"
This hotel is not a luxe hotel. The bedding is dated and uncomfortable. The room feels dirty. The sliding door on the bathroom is very loud. Very overpriced. We stayed in a room that the hotel said was suitable for a family. It was not! We actually checked out early and went to a different hotel in the city.
"Excellent location, great view from waterfront room"
We are return visitors to the Vitale, and we loved the location and view just as much this stay. Did have a few issues with the hotel this time around. Front desk and bell staff helpful and nice, took forever to get our car which was valet parked. Even when we called ahead by 30 minutes we still waited a long time for our car. We left early each morning for a walk and even when requesting our room be made up it wasn't done on two days. We also had some concerns with the noise from the street and my husband had to wear ear plugs. They did have a sound machine in the room. No turn down service, at least we didn't get it even though in a request. All that being said the pluses outweigh the minuses and the view is great.
"Good location, mediocre service"
The good: - Nice location on the waterfront with good views from the upper floors - Good size rooms and bathrooms The bad: - Very weak water pressure in shower - Told by reception at check in on a Friday night that breakfast was available from 630am. Arrived for breakfast at 630am on Saturday before an early tour to find that in fact breakfast is only from 730am on weekends. - Dropped a shirt off for laundering on a Friday night and had to chase several times for its return 24 hours later. - Spa v. expensive Overall: Not a bad option but I probably wouldn't stay here again.
