Hotel Vitale

San Francisco, USA

The hotel

Bagging itself a spot on the waterfront Embarcadero, Hotel Vitale is a stroll from dining, shopping and sightseeing. You’ll also be minutes from the historic Ferry Building — where lovers of food are drawn to its marketplace, restaurants, and cafés. At the hotel, take a trip up to the penthouse spa, with its rooftop soaking tubs, or to the two private terraces to take in the views of Bay Bridge. You can enjoy complimentary tea and coffee in the lobby or head to Americano for homespun Italian dishes and cocktails in its circular lounge.

Love the view! Love the convenience! Excellent service, friendly staff, and a convenient location. We have stayed there several times, the first for a friend's wedding, and we look forward to staying there again.

Great location! Perfect for business or personal groups! Rooms were very nice! Outdoor upper floor patio very nice to chill with a bottle of wine and take in the view! Valet parking is great - Take advantage of it for sure! The Ferry building is right across the street with all manner of food and shopping!

A great stay-cation for locals that want to experience a luxurious tourist experience! Right across from the bay bridge, outdoor view of the ferry Building, and delicious food around. Just about everything is within walking distance or a short public transportation/Uber ride away.

We had upgraded our room selection and the final bill was still over $350. We have stayed here before but we won’t again as I feel the hotel does not value their customers enough to make it right, monetarily, when the accommodations are not up to standard. Read less
