Hotel Vertigo

San Francisco, USA

The hotel

As seen on screen in the classic Hitchcock thriller Vertigo, this hotel’s a piece of cinematic history. Rightly proud of its ‘supporting role’, you can catch the movie playing on loop in the lobby as you enjoy complimentary tea and coffee each morning, before stepping out to explore your Nob Hill neighbourhood. Just blocks from Union Square, you can amble to many San Francisco must-sees from Hotel Vertigo – although, rather aptly, you may get giddy from all the dizzying hills. Alongside essentials like your flat screen TV and complimentary WiFi, each marmalade-tinted room’s decked out with playful additions like vivid orange wingback chairs, quirky horse-head lamps, and artwork inspired by the spiralling vortexes in the film’s posters. Regardless which floor you’re on, head skywards for a mesmeric view down the hotel’s monochromatic corkscrewing staircase – if you’ve got a head for heights.

First off, Greg at the front desk is wonderful. So helpful and sweet. Loved the room. Loved the location. Comfy bed and nice bathroom. The elevator however was so painfully slow that I just ended up lugging my suitcase up the stairs and then when it was time to leave, lugging my suitcase back down again. And what’s with the $2.00, 16.9 ounce… Read more

And what’s with the $2.00, 16.9 ounce bottles of water in the room? So counter intuitive to the great things about this place. Read less

I was in San Franciso for a business trip for a week and stayed at the hotel but mostly out the whole day. But I'm glad they made my stay very comfortable, especially Joan who was very friendly and went all the way to bring me some extra towels when I needed them. Place is also not far from everything. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, its a good location although close to Tenderloin which has a unbelieveable amount of homeless people hanging around. In all my travels abroad I've never seen a place so bad. The rooms are large and very well decorated with some classy touches.When we were there the hotel didn't have any facilities for breakfast so we had quite a walk to the nearest cafe. On the whole the staff were very good one or two need customer care courses but it was ok. I enjoyed my stay there and if in San Francisco again would stop again Read less

This hotel is perfectly situated for visitors to San Francisco, only a short walk to Union Square. It has been renovated and you can still stay in the room they used as James Stewart's apartment in the Movie Vertigo..

Stayed in this hotel for two nights last month. Lovely comfortable room in a good location. I loved the history of the place being linked to the movie Vertigo. A very warm welcome when we arrived and couldn't fault the friendliness of the staff. Would highly recommend staying here.
