More Room Types

The legendary Alfred Hitchcock shot scenes for his classic thriller Vertigo on-site and today the hotel still embraces its cinematic history. Starting life as a speakeasy during prohibition, the artsy property was renovated and reopened as Hotel Vertigo in 2008 and plays the movie on loop in the lobby.

Rooms were also updated with plush furniture and whimsical design elements incorporating the film’s theme with signature tangerine and white accents echoing the movie poster, horse-head lamps and the iconic swirl logo along the walls. All accommodations are equipped with free Wi-Fi, mini refrigerators, iPod docking stations and free morning papers.

Complimentary coffee and tea are available in the lobby each morning and the property has a small fitness center. Currently the property is under renovation to add more guest rooms and a restaurant.

The hotel is less than a 10-minute walk from Union Square’s shops, restaurants and museums but the surrounding blocks can be a little dodgy and its best to ask the concierge to call a taxi when heading out after dark. For daytime sightseeing, guests can walk two blocks to light-rail and bus stops.
