San Francisco has many attractions to the visitor whether for business or vacation. One of the keys to enjoying the City is the ability to walk around and experience the variety of the City through all your senses. Luckily a recent addition to the luxury hotel scene enables you to get the most from a visit to this City which is a bridge between America and Asia – The Hotel Vitale.
The 200 hotel rooms are all exceptionally well appointed with 440 thread count linens, plenty of windows, light and interesting views of the bay or City. All rooms blend comfort with practicality coupling limestone bathrooms with LATHER amenities and a modern workstation for the business traveller. The hotel additionally boasts a series of panoramic circular suites all with a bathtub and views of the Bay Bridge.
Located just a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf on Mission Street guests can stroll the outdoor farmers market as well as the permanent indoor market and see the meat, fruit and vegetables which the Hotel purchases to ensure freshness and quality of produce. Famous restaurants such as Boulevard and The Slanted Door are a few minutes away – though the Hotel's Americano Restaurant and Bar is a must-do experience.
The Americano restaurant serves Breakfast, Lunch and dinner daily blending Italian cuisine with local touches, taking advantage of seasonal produce reflecting authentic and robust Italian cooking flavors. Executive Chef Josua Perez creates dishes that are rooted in tradition and incorporate hand-crafted ingredients. The Bar serves a range of interesting craft cocktails alongside the usual stalwarts.
For the business traveller the Hotel Vitale has a range of conference facilities and business amenities to meet the needs of the businessman on the move. The hotel also features a range of "Green meetings" which maximize the use of environmental initiatives.
However, if relaxation is more of a premium to the guest then the Hotel Vitale Spa is ready to meet their needs.
