"Needs a little more 'Yes'"
The difference between a great hotel and a good hotel can often come down to the difference between a 'yes' and a 'no.' No one will argue that Hotel Vitale is in a great location. It's across from the Ferry Building and it's across from Boulevard restaurant. It's clean and the rooms are comfortable, many with nice views. At this level though, I expect a little more service...a little more 'yes.'
"Needs a plastic surgeon"
Location of the hotel is great, right in front of the Old Ferry Building in Embarcadero, walking distance to business or pleasure sites. The staff is nice and attentive. The rooms, how ever, are in urgent need of deep remodeling. It is unbecoming for an hotel in the $500+ range to have rooms that seem worn. The bathroom, especially, looks like it belongs in a cheap motel. The shower is terrible. It's a shame. The hotel could be one of the best in San Francisco.
Absolutely perfect! We had a delightful weekend in SF. Hotel Vitale is perfectly situated. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and pleasantly attentive. They made the extra effort to secure adjoining rooms for us. We truly appreciated every aspect of the stay. We loved it and can't wait to go back!
"Good place to stay but very pricey"
This hotel is in a great location close to transportation and with great views. They have a nice terrace on the top of the hotel that's great for lounging and visiting with other people and also taking in the views of the city. the rooms are nice but the only thing is for the price it is a pricey place to stay. if it is in your budget I would recommend staying here if not you might want to stay somewhere else.
"Awesome hotel but Urban Retreat fee ruins it all"
I love this hotel, it is awesome in a lot of way but.... they got me with the $30/night for the Urban Retreat fee which was not disclosed on the hotel confirmation or at any time while I was booking the room. I travel under a corporate rate and the fee still applied. When I called to inquire about the fee thinking it was a mistake for my corporate travel, they said the fee applied because they only have so many rooms they allow at the corporate rate and they had all been taken by the time I booked mine. So my room charges and the Urban Retreat Fee applied without my corporate discount. My corporation is now removing them as a "preferred provider" as a result. Sad, as I really enjoyed staying there. :(
