Why We Love It

  • This hotel gives easy access to all of greater SF with the Powell St. BART station around the corner
  • The property (formerly Hotel Palomar) was remodeled in 2014 and got a complete lobby refresh
  • Dirty Habit, the on-site restaurant, is one of the few rooftop bars in the city and serves up craft cocktails and innovative fare

Hotel Zelos, part of the Viceroy Hotel Group, is a hip boutique hotel located in downtown San Francisco between Union Square and SoMa. As soon as guests walk in the doors, the mood is set with playful chandeliers that look like honeycomb and bold artwork. The lobby has a cool, art deco look with sharp lines, striking colors and strong geometric shapes. 

The rooms are spacious, with 300 square feet of space to move around in and beautiful bathrooms featuring granite vanities and fun wallpaper. The soaker tubs are just the ticket for melting stress away, with Pharmacopia shampoo and conditioner. If any travel item has been left at home, Hotel Zelos has a kit with 20 items including a razor, shaving cream, nail clippers, nail file, toothpaste and toothbrush. Guests also have the option of scheduling a massage in the privacy and comfort of their hotel room.

The popular and newly renovated Dirty Habit restaurant is located on the fifth floor. The dining room sets the tone for a vibrant evening with dimly lit light fixtures that look like floating candles at night and vintage, sliding barn doors. The outdoor patio is one of the few rooftop bars in the city, heated with a fire pit and lights strewn above the patio.

Hotel Zelos is located in a beautiful neighborhood between South of Market and Union Square. The Westfield San Francisco Centre, SFMOMA and Moscone Center are within minutes of the hotel. It’s also walking distance to AT&T Park.
