Hotel Vitale is located in a prime downtown location across from the Embarcadero. Hotel design is sophisticated and simple. Rooms are beautifully appointed. Views are spectacular! Strong coffee is available in the hotel lobby until 11:00 am. A much better choice than the Hyatt

Hotel Vitale has been our go to San Francisco destination for years. The service is fantastic, rooms clean and chic and you can’t beat the location. We live local, but when we need a weekend away we head to Hotel Vitale. Five stars!

I’ve come to this hotel for many years, ever since it first opened. I always loved the location, aesthetic and service. Sadly since new ownership took over, the place has become a shell of what it once was. They do not honor promises, take care of guests, and hide behind

My former favorite hotel in SF has completely lost its way and I am done with it forever. Last time I stayed there I noticed so many things wrong. Dirty dishes from someone’s room service left in the hallway when I went to bed still were still there in the morning. Stains on

Hi, Jane G. What would you like to know about this accommodation? REstaurant
I only had breakfast. Great staff. Foor is delicious. Nice choices. They do tend to run out of specialty items at times. The restaurant and bar is closed midday. Wish it were open morning to evening, even if with a smaller menu. We never were there for dinner.

Do the circular suites have a view of BOTH bridges or just one? Thanks!
Just the Bay Bridge. There are buildings and "mountains" blocking a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. But you can see the Ferry Building and you can look down the Embarcadero as well.
