Great room with a view of the Bay Bridge. A perfect location with the Ferry Building across the street and fabulous nearby restaurants. Walking distance to everything including AT&T Park. My first choice of places to stay in San Francisco.
"Great location! Great views from the rooftop"
Booked this amazingly located hotel as a treat to myself and although I did not get to use the Spa facilities or the gym I did go up to the 7th floor roof terrace to enjoy the views of the pier and Bay Bridge in the evening and in the morning. My room was comfortable and as I checked in early I managed to get my room early too. Conveniently located in the Embacadero district I only wish I had more time to enjoy the convenience of it all.
I have been coming to SF (Ess Eff, as Herb Caen would've said) for a good 50+ years. I've sampled many a-hotel. I've given up on some of the oldies, sadly. I discovered this place through TA reviews, and thank you to all who reviewed it! First off, the location is fantastic! Across from Ferry Building on one side and Boulevard Restaurant on the other! About 1 mile walking distance to the baseball stadium (which was my reason for staying here). I love how they text you ahead of time about your room. So efficient and helpful. Check in was a breeze and they are professional and personable. Room was cool enough (!), beds and linens (Frette, or impostor Frette) divinely comfortable, shower and toiletries great! I love that their double room is queens not double beds and this is partly why I chose it. When traveling as 4 people, sharing a double bed is nearly impossible. The decor is just lovely, not edgy like many hotels are turning to and which is such a turn off to me. It feels brand new, this hotel, but it is 10 years old though built from the ground up, not a remodel of an old one. Price is very competitive for what you get, I think! And the restaurant serves a great breakfast!
"Great location, but not great value"
Beautiful views of the ferry building, bay and Bay Bridge and it's right by the street car stop so it's very easy to get to Castro ad Fisherman's Wharf. My room was large and very comfortable and clean (although I did have to beg for a replenishment of bodywash which was weird). I'd give their breakfast a miss - unfriendly welcome (staff seem to concentrate on being supercool and over-serious) - and food takes a while to order, a long time to arrive and mean portions/no finishing touches. Everything gets charged extra. Makes it really bad value for money. There are plenty of great breakfast options nearby, particularly in the Ferry building. NB - the WiFi is NOT FREE - they say this is what you pay the $35 (!) per night "urban retreat fee" for amongst a couple of other minor things like lobby coffee and apparently 10% off in the spa, or to access a 10 minute massage in the spa, with plenty of complicated rules and arrangements attached, reeled off at me (whilst very jet lagged) on check- in. Never was able to try out the Americano bar - it was given over to corporate events each evening I tried and I couldn't get in to have a pre-dinner drink so I didn't feel like the hotel cares that much about facilities for guests. The hotel is fine, comfortable and reception/concierge pleasant but I wouldn't choose to stay here again - for a pricey hotel they do charge you extra for things that come as standard at any chain hotel or even fancier hotels than this one. Overall, not great value
I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Vitale recently and was so pleased with everything the hotel and staff had to offer. Great location; wonderful ambiance; comfortable bed; every amenity one needs and a restaurant that serves delicious food and is very accomidating. I will return!
