This is a boutique hotel that is very comfortable, & close to all parts of the San Francisco area. Walk across the street to the market & try all kinds of fresh fish & veggies, plus chocolates to die for.The view of the bridge & water from our room was relaxing.They have a great restaurant on site, & many more in walking distance. Stroll to the museums or take a taxi to Fisherman,s Wharf for sightseeing.Go on a tour of Alcatraz & see the sea lions.Book a ticket online before you go to avoid long lines & sell outs. We will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water, market, & bridge or you will be looking at a building.it's worth the upgrade.

As a visitor to San Fransisco I relied on the hotel staff and they did not dissapoint. Always helpful with arrangements. Stayed here because of the location and it was wonderful,near the ferry terminal but loved the yoga and all the other amenities offered.

Dear thinkingmore:

I am so pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Hotel Vitale. The next time you stay with us, I encourage you to spend some time on any of our three terraces – all boast impressive views of the Bay Bridge and provide a truly serene experience. Also, be sure to visit Americano where Chef Kory creates soulful, Italian cuisine that feature hand-crafted pastas and local ingredients.

We stayed at this hotel because it said it was pet friendly, and they are! They gave us a doggie package. which included a doggie bed, a toy, and doggie treats! They even give you your own doggie towel. For a pet friendly hotel, I would give this establishment a five star rating! If you want to stay at a beautiful San Francisco hotel I would definitely give this place a try. We loved it and would definitely be back.:)

I had never stayed in the embarkadero area, but loved it. Our room had a very of the bay bridge and the water. The area is not as heck it as union square. The outdoor seating areas on the 5th and 7th floors had fantastic views. I love heavenly beds and free wifi in the room. Besides free tea and coffee in the lobby, the hotel provided a free car service( mercedes hybrid) to union square, even though it is a short ten minute walk. Also we had a large mirror in our room that had a reflection of that fanastic view, I did not want to leave the room!

Room Tip: Ask for the view of the bay bridge, our room was 302
