Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
On the Embarcadero waterfront, the boutique Hotel Vitale is known for its prime location and what Condé Nast Traveler calls its "million-dollar view." With two outdoor terraces (on the fifth and seventh floors), the hotel looks out onto the glittering Bay Bridge. It’s also directly across from the city’s Ferry Building, home to dozens of foodie shops and restaurants and a farmer’s market on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.
Rooms are spacious and minimalist, with the best facing out toward the bay (although the other rooms are much quieter). Some have walk-in rain showers (many with deep-soaking tubs, as well). A nightly turndown service comes with a printout of the next day’s weather forecast and other thoughtful extras.
Fresh farm-to-table Italian dishes grace the menu at Americano, where diners overflow onto the heated patio during busy after-work hours. It's open for breakfast seven days a week and for dinner Monday through Saturday; lunch is served on weekdays only. The circular cocktail lounge with 180-degree street views is a great spot to people-watch over a drink. Polished floors and low sofas provide a sultry scene for happy hour.
Located on the penthouse floor, the exclusive Spa Vitale has three treatment rooms and is known for its deep-soaking tubs hidden in their outdoor rooftop bamboo garden (charges apply). On the second floor, there’s also a small in-house gym.
