When I travel with my wife, we want to eat and drink, see the sights...but more than anything we want to feel welcomed; embraced by our surroundings. She calls it getting a "big hug" from the places we go. In this case, the hug began before we arrived and continued our entire stay. Quite simply, this hotel provided customer service... More

We loved the Zetta hotel. Went for Thanksgiving weekend - a family trip with our 2 teenagers. We all loved the place.The playroom is not a marketing joke, it is there and it is prefect to relax after a long sight-seeing day. The staff is super super friendly (Rosemary first!). The Cavalier restaurant is great: superb food, amazing breakfasts (and... More

Hotel Zetta reminded me of my stays in NYC. The hip, cool vibe is fitting for the young at heart, the musically inclined, or even the fashionista and hipsters. The location was perfect in more ways than one. Steps in seconds to Westfield and not a long shot from Union Square. What I love most was the ease of getting... More

Was booked for 3 persons occupancy in a room with 2 Queen beds. Truly didn't expect how large the room was, the pictures online didn't do it justice. Beds were comfortable, superb amenities, large modern bathroom, a bunch of plugs located bedside, even a USB charging station. Noticed that the luxurious toiletries such as the shower gels, lotions and shampoos... More

This is a centrally located hotel with large adjoining rooms which made for a very comfortable stay. It has a cute lobby and large rooms for us and our 3 teenage kids - with shopping right next door, as well as a decent restaurant on the other side for meals.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in transition from Oakland to Silicon Valley. The Zetta's location next to BART made those connections ideal since I was also traveling with a bike.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Zetta and it was a very enjoyable stay. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful, offering great advice about restaurants and places to visit.

We stayed for four nights including Halloween which was very cool. The hotel staff and many of the patrons were definitely into it. The room was nice with a large bathroom. The staff attempted to address all of our concerns and were totally professional the whole time. I am waiting to hear back from the GM before finalizing this review.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
