When you’re looking for a place to sleep in San Francisco that meets location at the intersection of luxury, look no further than Hotel Vitale.
Most of the city’s hotels are gathered near the tourist-centric Fisherman’s Wharf and Union Square (a questionable neighborhood just a few streets in the wrong direction) areas, or spread out in far-flung corners distant from any attractions at all.
Just across from the iconic San Francisco Ferry building, Bay Bridge waterfront and Embarcadero street cars, Hotel Vitale wins for best location by far.
The chic Joie de Vivre property offers a gorgeous Landmark Terrace Suite with external balcony, Deluxe Circular Panoramic Suite (personal fave – so cute for a girlfriends’ getaway or couple’s retreat), and terrace and studio rooms with Financial District or waterfront views.
Decor throughout is clean, chic and boutique with lavender everywhere. Be greeted with lavender-scented hand towels, find lavender sprigs in the halls and enjoy adorable lavender presses within your suite. Aromatherapy at your service.
Anddd… the best part of any hotel: the on-site spa! Spa Vitale’s Japanese-inspired penthouse terrace took me right back to Kyoto, and the bamboo-nestled bathtub is an amazing escape from the bustle below.
Seriously, how gorgeous is this rose-petaled bath water?!
Downstairs, the Americano restaurant on the first floor is a popular spot for locals and travelers alike.
If you’re in town and looking for a new happy hour to check out — drop by the outdoor patio on Friday afternoon. It gets packed by 4:30pm, withn perfect proximity to gourmet mecca Ferry Building for dinner just across the street. No ridesharing required (#win).
Icing on the cake: they serve Equator coffee! If you’ve been following along on Instagram you know about my recent obsession with their cold brew (if not, join in!).
For a waterfront weekend getaway to the city by the Bay or staycation retreat, Hotel Vitale’s location meets luxury proposition can’t be beat.
