The hotel charge strange transactions into my account without receiving or invoice for me. And when I ask them, they said that they will payback in the end of business day. But Not. I have to contact with my bank account to check all transactions. So uncomfortable

Great visit...looking forward to our stay in August for the Giant Race. We are concerned about the construction for the ferries affecting Bay View Ropoms, but will just have to request a higher room (402 was ours)

Big business trip and the hotel was a wonderful place to stay and recharge. The rooftop patios is especially nice attraction and what views. Service was great and you can't beat the location - in the heart of SF.

I chose the Hotel Vitale to the close to our event which was being held at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. As I would normally stay in the Four Seasons or the Huntington when I stay int he city, I needed to be close to our event. My first poor encounter occurred on the phone with reservations. I called...

You have to get the waterfront view, such a beautiful view! Small hotel and small room but trendy and well located. Liked the free gym classes at the YMCA across the street. Didn't like the nightly parking fee ($60?). Nice for a 1 night stay to partake in city fun!

Beautiful location and views. Staff was very accommodating. The restaurant bar can be quite loud so difficult to have a conversation across the table. Loved it when Yoga was available on premises, but at least the Y is down the street.

Great staff and nicely decorated but not a good value. The property looks much different on the website than in person. We also had a maintenance person using power tools directly above our room at 7:15 AM-not great when you're on vacation!

I had a wonderful visit with my sons because everyone was so helpful getting me into the right room and service was excellent. The room was perfect, the view was great, we were in walking distance to several great restaurants and the best part was that we were able to walk and watched the Giants baseball game and they won...

Fantastic! A small boutique SF hotel with an enormous offering. Dinner, New Years party, with a private outdoor level to watch new year fireworks. Truly special location, across from the Ferry Market.

We stayed here for 3 days at the end of a cruise and were slightly dissapointed as it is advertised as a 5 star hotel with spa and, in our view, did not earn the rating. The rooms were very spacious and well fitted, with great views over the bay if you paid extra. However the double glazing did not...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
