Found this hotel last minute for a weekend in the city and was so pleased. It's right on the waterfront near the Ferry Building and that was key as we wanted to walk there for breakfast in the morning. Great access to the places we wanted to go along the Embarcadero, like the

Friendly, modern hotel in very convenient location and decent bar scene. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Staff clearly tries to make a connection and takes pride in their work. Can walk to anywhere in embarcadero center and financial district. Will probably stay here again.

It seems I'm always going on about the Vitale. Everything is just good there, and by 'good', of course, I mean 'great'. My friend frequently rents his place out on an Airbnb kind of site, which is great, I'm happy for him, but it's tough sometimes because it's also where I

Nice hotel near the Embarcadero. The bed was very comfortable, the room was spotless and the hotel restaurant was very good. Although my room was on the second floor and facing a busy street, it was still very quiet.

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.

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.
