San Francisco, California

This hotel is in a great location of the city. It's literally next to Westfield Mall and around the corner from BART (train transportation). Since SF is 7x7, you can easily take public transportation, walk, or Uber from Zetta and reach the other end of the city in a reasonable amount of time. There isn't a parking garage, so you'll...

ChrissyJoy17, Thank you for the nice words! Anytime we can impress a native San Francisco then we consider our job well done. I'm sure that being a local you can understand the parking situation downtown. Our valet is a great option which allows 24 in and out access for our guests. Come by and hang out with us again...I promise...

I thought as a seasoned Business traveler I'd try something different, actually twice in one week. The differences between a Boutique hotel and the mainstream ones are subtle but important. Someone to help with your luggage, as you get off in the road and its not obvious you are a guest. The check-in was formal but certainly didn't sparkle, the...

Ranjit A, I appreciate your honest and straightforward feedback. We pride ourselves on high service level, and am surprised that you did not feel the Zetta love. That is unusual for us! We hope that you give us another try. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Operations Manager, Vilen (vilen.gabrielyan@viceroyhotelgroup.com) when coming back. He will make sure...

The location is perfect for the Moscone Center! Good restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. The hotel is small enough to give friendly, personal attention, but large enough to offer quality service and amenities. My room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff were consistantly friendly and helpful. I loved the decor of the lobby, and the desk staff...

Dear Dave M, Yes! Looks like we did it again! We love to hear you highlight our great staff and rooms. After all, a boutique hotel should make you feel like a friend rather than a guest and our staff is the cornerstone of that. We hope that you not only recommend us, but come back again soon. -Michel N...

Good value for money option in SFO. Location is handy to downtown and the associated restaurants, bars, and activities. Rooms are a little basic, but everything you need. Service is fun and relaxed; check-in and out was a breeze. Would stay again.

Dear Swil245. You are correct that our location is very handy to everything in the immediate area. Being in the heart of downtown San Francisco we really are close to just about anything. The historic Cable Cars are just around the corner, the mall is next door and BART is on the nearest corner. So great! -Michel N General Manager

OK let's start with the good. The location is great for the Moscone, it's opposite a little sun trap square which is also home to the best coffee in the city (Blue Bottle), the beds are extremely comfortable and the decor is not the usual boring business hotel - there's rock'n'roll on the walls. The not-so-good? Well the view from...

San Francisco boasts an ever-growing inventory of updated, hip hotels, and the Zetta ranks among the better in the category. Rooms are fresh, comfortable and functional, there's a pool table alongside the lobby bar and the vibe is youthful. The location (just south of busy, ever-transitioning Market Street) may seem off-putting at first, but that dissolves with the realization that...

Great customer service, but the room (310) was very average and felt really cheap, this was not helped with the vinyl flooring throughout the bathroom and bedroom, the room was jammed packed with a mini bar , drinks bar , snack tray and snack draw above the minibar. While it good to have a minibar should you need it, this...

I have tried 4 hotels in these two weeks of travel in NY, LA and SF. And I allowed myself 200-300 USD per night of stay. The first impression was very important and the lobby of Zetta was trendy and playful, and it had a good vibe. The hotel has spent enough resources in the lobby, with very high ceiling,...

Had a great stay! The room was well-sized; the room service was prompt and delicious; and the staff was great. The staff was always willing to help with questions or point me in the right direction. The only negative was that there was a convention in town and the multiple events made the lobby difficult to navigate at times.

Great week at the Hotel Zetta. Perfect location, solid amenities and great staff. A slight hiccup with when exactly the early check-in would be available but handled well by staff. It's always nice going on vacation and not having to worry about any problems whatsoever with the room. Special shout-out to Omar Hernandez for arranging for flowers in the room!

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.
