My wife and I spent our 20th anniversary in SF on Jan 8-11. We know of the Vitale from previous trips. Still the same cool vibe, with great rooms and location, right across the street form the Ferry Bldg, yet away from the Union Square mobs.... we walked to many restaurants, bars, etc., or took short cab rides to our favorite spots. Another great stay ! We will be back soon....!

Stayed: January 2016, travelled as a couple

I was so lucky that my client booked me a room at the Hotel Vitale: Such a fabulous view of the Bay. Such impeccable service. Such a nice room. I couldn't have loved it more. I cannot recommend this place enough. You'll love it.

Vitale is my favorite hotel period. I sleep great, their staff is fantastic and the location in San Francisco can't be beat.

The onsite restraunt and bar is solid.

Make sure you check out one of their two rooftop patios!

No question, this is one of the nicest boutique hotels in the Bay Area. Staff are absolutely lovely and rooms are spacious. Linens are great and housekeeping spotless. I've stayed here a few times and here are the caveats:
1) limited space in the bathroom for products - this is more important as a female traveler I think!!
2) hallways are noisy and doors don't always block the noise.
3) you can absolutely hear your upstairs neighbors...you can figure out where that was going?!?
4) for some reason the hotel has switched from the Fresh and Lather products which were made in the USA and Europe to products that are branded Jonathan Adler but are made in China - not great for toiletries.
5) they've added on a $10 surcharge onto the room service 20% gratuity, sf tax and sales tax. And they still have a spot on the bill for a tip?!? Makes room service quite expensive. On the plus side, the food is great.

All that said, I will definitely be back (next time with my own toiletries though!?) It's a great hotel overall!!
