Hotel Vitale

Guests Are Saying

  • Location is tops. Get the panoramic suite for unbelievable views.
This is the third time I've stayed in the panoramic suite. It's amazing. We watched the New Year's Eve fireworks from our windows in our warm room with champagne and in our PJs. The staff here is friendly, young and beautiful. Don't understand why people gravitate to Union Square when they can have this!  - Ruby & Cody
  • No comparison to any other hotel where we stay. . We love Vitale. Friendly and efficient service. It is very nice to see same staff year after year, a sign of good management. .Americano is great for all occasions.
Views are indescribable. Just can't say enough.

  • I enjoyed a perfect mini-vacation at Hotel Vitale. There is no better place to stay in San Francisco.
The waterfront location is wonderful and interesting; the rooms are quiet, bright, extraordinarily comfortable and well-equipped; and the entire hotel staff is kind, professional, and warm. I also thoroughly enjoyed two meals at the in-house restaurant. Delicious!!  - DeluthRuth
  • Super impressed with the service and fabulously priced gorgeous rooms.
  - Cynthia C.
  • Hotel Vitale was great! Clean, contemporary, comfortable with great restaurants nearby. Great staff, nice room, good bed. I highly recommend it.
  - A Traveler
  • We enjoyed every facet of our stay at this hotel. The service was in the above average to exceptional range from everyone to the valet, room service and restaurant staff. We loved the rooms decor and how clean everything was.  - Bitsy M.
  • Awesome location, beautiful decor inside, very nice view of the bay bridge and so close to the ferry building. The front desk was very accommodating and friendly. The room we had was a suite and it was pretty big... for an SF room ;) The bathroom was supplied with Fresh products (and I'm a HUGE fan), and super soft, plush towels.  - MissJennifer L.
  • The whole place is a class act.
 The building has a very calming, relaxed, cool feel which is obviously the intention from the great decor. 
Would definitely return again and would recommend to anyone thinking of staying here. 
The in-room CD's are worth buying too.

  • My favorite hotel in SF -- by far! 
I've stayed in just about every luxury hotel in the city, but for the past couple of years I've been staying exclusively at The Vitale. The water view rooms are exquisite; there's just nothing like waking up and peering out over the water. The staff, especially the concierges, are very helpful, and the room service is delicious.  - MisterKelly
  • Great hotel in great location. Staff couldn't have been more spectacular. Outstanding views from the roof. Room was comfy and accommodating. Can't wait to stay there again!
  - Daniel T.
  • Just got back from a two-night stay at Hotel Vitale and have only good things to say. First of all, the location is right across from the Ferry Building and our ocean-view room had a lovely view of the Ferry clock tower, bay and Bay Bridge. The room was clean, peaceful and quiet, no street noise at all. It takes only a few minutes to walk to the Embarcadero Metro stop.  - Socalesq
  • The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Service, rooms, location, food, everything outstanding, I cannot recommend this hotel enough! View of the bay bridge is breathtaking.  - Cazzi31
  • Perfect from beginning to end! The room was nice and large and comfortable and very clean. The service was impeccable. Every employee was friendly and helpful. The location to The Ferry Building is the best.
  - Icee
  • Eco friendly, great staff/concierge and so refreshingly beautiful! Upon your stay here, I would highly recommend getting a bottle of wine (from the Ferry Building or Farmers Market right across the street) and enjoy watching a pastel sunset from the rooftop! Definitely one of my San Fran faves!
