We stayed the few days before Thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The location is great! The hotel itself was very well maintained and clean and the service very good. Menu in the restaurant is good especially for breakfast. There were so many restaurants within walking distance it was hard to choose for dinner. All in all, great hotel!

We had a great stay at Hotel Vitale. Perfect location for seeing all the great sites in SF. 1 min walk to the Ferry Building, great views on the roof top decks, and really comfortable beds and pillows. Everything was clean and nice and the on site concierge was really helpful when we planned our day trip up to Bodega... More

We stayed in room 502 on the 5th floor. Incredible view of the Bay Bridge. Love the close proximity to the Ferry Building. Used Uber to head towards Pier 39.

Always outstanding. Hotel Vitale is vital when in SF. Totally chilled out atmosphere with tranquil lobby and spiffy rooms. Nice lively bar and of course excellent Americano restaurant. Across from the Ferry Building and the rest of Embarcadero, it also has a great central location. One of SF's best for sure!

We spent the weekend here while visiting San Francisco for a friend's wedding, and had a wonderful time. We had a partial water view room on the 4th floor, and despite being close to the street the street noise was minimum. The whole place has a spa-like ambiance (on trend with other hotels, Hotel Vitale scents their spaces), and the... More

I travel to SF pretty regularly but this was the first time my office booked me at this hotel. Location is great as everyone points out. But I had a good clean room on the second floor. It looked out on to the Embarcadero. The only downside was that it also overlooked the outside bar/terrace which was a little noisy... More

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.
